Nothing is better than getting a call that there is a second baby on the way.  What better excuse could there be to get together again?  It had been four years since I saw this little guy…and he’s not so little anymore!  AND he was also going to be a BIG BROTHER!  Little bro was so sweet….I could have just taken him home.  Monkey-hair and all!  Haha!  My favourite was his furry little ears.  Smile

I just adore those big dark eyes!  And so happy I have been able to spend so much time photographing these cuties.  Little brother was a bit shy for his 6 month session…but gave up some smiles when we got some tickles on that chubby belly.  His big sis was the same.  Always made us work for a smile.  And finally when it was not her turn, we got tonnes of smiles!  Haha!  Isn’t that always the way?  It’s been a few short months since his 3 month session.  I can’t believe how much he’s grown!!  Here’s some of my faves.  Smile

There are so many things I love about this time of year.  Once the gifts are bought/made and under the tree, I feel as though the stress is gone and I can just enjoy.  Well, aside from the guests, cooking and keeping everyone happy and healthy.  Then the holiday is completely stress-free! Winking smile

Just for fun, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite things that I love about the holidays.  So here we go!

1.  I LOVE sitting in the dark beside the glow of the Christmas tree.  There are a few special ornaments and decorations that make me smile each year they come out.  I love my fat Santa!  My hubby bought him for me the first year we were married.  And he his just the cutest! (Santa’s not bad either…haha!)  And then there’s my little cardboard Santa troop.  My first Christmas after I moved from home I didn’t have very many decorations to put on my tree.  So co-worker had given them to me.  They still make me smile.  Even more so now that the kids have taken to placing them ALL ON THE SAME TREE BRANCH!  They know how much that bugs me.  (I’m a bit of a Monica Geller when it comes to my tree decorating!)  But this year I have just decided to….let it go.  Haha!  (But I did turn that side of the tree to the back so I don’t have to see that branch every day.)

Santa

2.  And when it comes to decorating….I like to spice up EVERY room.  And what a better excuse to decorate your bathroom??  My toilet paper tree is a big conversation piece whenever my sons friends are over.  I swear they think his mother is nuts! Open-mouthed smile

3.  And if it looks like Christmas…it might as well smell like it too!!  I admit, I can get lost in Bath and Bodyworks for a good hour or so smelling all the various scents in there.  But I was so happy with their holiday selection this year.  This is one of my favourites.  And while I think I’m a relatively decent cook; and I CAN bake.  When it comes to Christmas baking…I am just no good at it.  I don’t know if it is the added pressure or what.  But I currently have about a 5% success rate at ANY recipe.  So now my house SMELLS like baking!  And all I have to do is wash my hands.

Christmas scents

4.  And if it LOOKS like Christmas, SMELLS like Christmas…it must SOUND like Christmas.  These are a few of my favourite Christmas albums this year.  As well as a multitude of OTHER songs of course.  I usually have a playlist going on the computer of all my favourites.  I have found that I seem to really like the song “Little Drummer Boy”.  It makes me laugh when my shuffle lines them all up and I have various artists singing the SAME SONG over and over.  Haha!

Christmas tunes

5.  I am so happy to have a flexible schedule for this alone.  I LOVE to participate in the school’s craft days!  The little ones made Christmas ornaments and the bigger guys made gingerbread houses.  It’s so neat to see all the kids creativity go wild.

6.  CAUGHT YA!  Even kitties get excited about Christmas!  I swear they think I put this stuff out just for them.  So many new toys to play with when they think no one is watching.  If she could read, she’d know that present is NOT for her.  Haha!

7.  And while I am NOT a big fan of COLD.  I do love how pretty the snow is when it’s mild and the flakes are so big and fluffy.  I have been very excited to have had a couple of brave families to run out in the snow for their family photos this year.  I hope to have more opportunities in the new year.  Nothing is prettier than a nice white blanket of snow.  Smile

Well, it will be 2014 before we know it.  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season…and I can’t wait to hear from you in the New Year!!

I was feeling a little sad as this gal’s one year portrait session was nearing.  Because I knew it would be the end of this series we were working on.  Until I found out that she was waiting for her baby brother to arrive!!

While she is getting bigger and learning so many new things as the months have gone on…her little personality has not changed.  She is so smiley smiley…and then serious in the blink of an eye.  Literally!!  Here she is at 4 months and 6 months.  I know I have said it more than once, but I have absolutely fallen in love with those big dark eyes.  Happy birthday sweet little girl!!  Now you’re ready to take on the world!   Smile

I have to admit, I was a tad scared to work with these girls.  Mom and Dad were nervous because their newborn portrait session did not go very well with their first child.  (I think at this point they were anticipating the worst…heehee.)  And as I walked in the door, Mom mentions that her oldest daughter does not like having her photo taken, oh – and doesn’t like new people either!  I was pretty sure that this would be an interesting day.

But seriously, I don’t know if this session could have gone ANY better.  Big sister was smiling for the photos and LOVED holding her new baby sister.  (That one is always a gamble when working with a toddler and a new baby.)  How adorable are they?!?!  And THEN, little miss newbie was a rockstar!  Once she had a full belly, she was willing to snuggle up to anything.  Which worked well for me.  All in all, I’d give this family an A+!! Open-mouthed smile

This little guy made me work hard.  But SO worth it!  He decided to arrive a little early, so we didn’t get a chance to meet up until he was about 3 weeks old.  And at this time he was quite alert (although you wouldn’t be able to tell that from these photos.  Heehee.)  If Mom was touching him, he was fine.  But the minute she let go…he’d let you know about it!  I loved his adoring looks at his parents too.  It was SO cute!  Smile

Happy New Year!!!  I know I’m running a bit late this year…but upgrading your equipment never comes easy.  I’m STILL trying to get my programs all up and running properly.  (Well, they’re running…just not how *I* like them!)

But aside from all that.  I just wanted to thank all the amazing families I had the chance to work with this year.  Being in my third year of business I met a lot of people for the second and third time.  Which was SO much fun!  I also stepped out of my comfort zone and held a day of mini sessions this past fall.  AND, happy to report it was a success.  I think it will become an annual event.  (If the weather cooperates.)

So here’s a my 2012 faves.  Hope you see yourself there!  Open-mouthed smile

Three years ago today my third baby was born, K Photo and Design.  I have had an amazing time meeting new people and creating great friends.  It is such a wonderful experience to see some of these babies grow from tiny little peanuts, to talkers, to walkers.  This year was the first year I’m starting to see little siblings coming into this world.  And I am so honoured to be called on again to capture these first few days.  Also a welcomed chance to catch up with these families again.  Open-mouthed smile
