One of the things I look forward to every Fall is having the chance to meet up with this family.  Aside from baby photos, I think this is the 5th year we’ve been doing this.  (Just last year!)  The kids ALWAYS keep me on my toes…and the chatter is hilarious!  As you can imagine, working with 3 different, very busy children can be a challenge.  But I am just so happy with this family photo – makes it ALL worth it.  Aren’t they adorable?!?! Open-mouthed smile

Hard to believe that 2017 is right around the corner.  So I just wanted to look at some of the amazing people I have met, and also reunited with over this past year.  I was lucky enough to be invited to capture a baptism and also a 90th birthday party.  My fall mini sessions are always a fave.  I love catching up with families I haven’t seen in a while.  And the kids ALWAYS have amazing stories for me.  Haha!  Smile  So here are a few of my most loved photos from 2016…if you see yourself – let me know!

Apparently a lot can happen in 5 years.  I did not realize it had been THAT long since I last met up with this family.  But so happy we did!!  I mean, how adorable are these gals??  And we managed to capture these nice smiles in the midst of a “fairy attack”.  Haha!  Perhaps it was the crew I had just before them that had woken up all the little bugs, maybe the sun, or the fact that the temperature had warmed up by then…but it was CRAZY!!  They were all little troopers though.  Mom kept telling them they were little fairies.  And it seemed to work!  Because we ended up with these amazingly cute photos!! Smile

I know I’m in for a fun time when I book a family session with this family.  A lot has changed since last year.  Or even the year before!  Little girl comes right up to me and introduces herself (as though we’ve never met).  But not to be outdone by her brother, he ALSO had to introduce himself.  So she starts showing me her pretty bracelet she’s wearing.  Boy jumps right in and shows off that HE is wearing a sweater!  Haha!  What little kooks!!  By the end of the session things got a bit goofy.  I know, shocking!  We were trying to keep the kids happy and interested by giving them these beautiful red leaves to hold onto for the photo.  They were both shaking their leaves as happy as can be.  But little boy kept shaking the leaf right in front of his face.  Which was not the BEST idea from a photographer’s perspective.  So I asked him if he could shake his leaf down by his side – and proceeded to demonstrate for him.  So he agrees he will do that and walks right over to me and begins to shake his leaf right beside me – which TECHNICALLY is exactly what I told him to do!!  Haha!  What a kid!!  I honestly have never dealt with a small child who follows direction as well as he did.  Literally.  Smile

So fun to see a family year after year…and in this case, every second year. Haha!  A lot has changed since 2014!  (And definitely since 2012!!)  This little guy, still full of energy – but the stories he can tell.  What a funny guy!!  We picked the perfect day for photos though.  After a cold spell, it was nice that it had warmed up a bit.  We walked around for a few different locations at the Arboretum.  But when I told this little guy we were going to go on an adventure through the forest – you should have seen his eyes sparkle!  He started in on this story about his favourite show, Ranger Rob.  We hiked up this little trail, and he was as happy as anything guiding us along.  Such a fun bunch!! Winking smile

Every year I attempt to take the kids out for some fall photos so we can send them off in our Christmas cards, for gifts and all that fun stuff.  And every year it gets a little more difficult. Unfortunately they usually get left to the last minute when it’s cold, and there are no coloured leaves.  But that’s the way it is.  I was happy with this years bunch though.  But for anyone that thinks that photographers must have a ridiculous amount of awesome photos of their kids….think again.  These outtakes speak for themselves. Smile with tongue out

cranky kids

And yes, I asked her to push her glasses up – that’s what I got.

Still taking advantage of the last little bit of Fall.  Please contact me to book your session: info@k-photo.ca.  And of course, keep up with what’s going on by following K Photo and Design on Facebook or Twitter!

Record snowfall AND a snowday?  The perfect opportunity to bribe my children to venture out into this winter wonderland.  Sitting at my desk watching those perfect fluffy snowflakes fall, I knew we had to hurry up to get out there.  Kids…not so fast, OR enthusiastic as I was.  I’m waiting for them at the door with my gear as they are getting ready.  I yell up at them “HURRY UP!!  YOU’RE MISSING IT!!!!”  My son wanders over to the door and says “Wow, Mom.  You are clearly insane.”  Haha!  And that’s what you have to do sometimes to get those perfect shots.  Oh, and offer donuts.  Smile

Okay, clearly I had a little trouble in choosing my favourites. Snow had stopped by the time we had found a location we could park at.  As most parking lots were not cleared at all.  But just as we were about to leave the snow started up again.  So I did manage to get a few with the snow actually falling.  So I’m pretty happy about that.  Although, I just love shooting in fresh snow.  It’s a beautiful backdrop for sure!

I can’t believe I am seeing the word January on my calendar.  AND it’s 2016!!  How is that even possible?

I met so many great new families this year…and was able to keep in touch with my fave old ones.  As the kids get bigger, they just get goofier.  (Is that a word?)  All in all, a lot of fun.  I even managed to photograph TWO weddings in 2015.  Which is odd, since I don’t do weddings.  Haha!  I also had two families welcome baby number THREE to the bunch.  Feels pretty darn special to be a part of these growing families.  There’s nothing like that new baby smell.  Or the stories from the older siblings.  I have heard some pretty grand ones this year.  Haha!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2016!!  Filled with fun…and hopefully photos!  Camera  Can’t wait to hear from you!  Smile

These guys always have some interesting stories for me.  Keeps me laughing the whole time!!  I guess that is why I love to hang out and take their Christmas photos every year.  I’m always up for trying something different – we had the kids decorate the tree….and then moved on to decorating their brother.  He was a really good sport.  And we had lots of fun.  Smile

This Christmas seems to have snuck up out of the blue.  I cannot believe it is currently sitting at +16 here in Ottawa.  Definitely no snow this year!! I may wear shorts…just to say I did.  Haha!  But I could not let the season escape without taking note of a few of my favourite things.

window dancers

I don’t know why I love these little solar dancers so much.  I usually have a bunch of them in my window all year round.  But decided to switch them out for a holiday variety.  The reindeer is a fave!!

Hot chocolate

Hot chocolate in a Christmas mug?  Could it get any better??

Jingle the dog

Normally I’m a pretty practical gal…and avoid buying stupid things.  But I could NOT leave this crazy dog.  He spins around so quickly that his head almost rotates all the way around.  He makes me laugh so much!!  Haha!  And he has been named “Jingle”.

crafts

Absolutely love it when the kids bring home Christmas crafts.  My son began a unit in “quilling” at school, and brought these cards home for us.  Well…one of them anyways.  The other he gave away.

Christmas tunes

I cannot get through December without blasting my Christmas music!!  I always love discovering some new tunes.  And this Walk off the Earth Christmas is a fave this year.

goodies

A Christmas mess can have a beautiful outcome!!  Mmmmm…..cookies!!

 

Wishing you all the very best this Christmas!!
