I knew I was in for a giggling good time when we were all set up for a beautiful family photo and this little girl raises her arms and yells “armpits”!!  There is just no recovery from that!!  Haha!  Let’s just say, things got a little goofy.  

So I have to tell you this story.  I had taken the last photo…and was about to pack up when this boy asks if I would take a photo of him and his Mom together.  OMG!! Just melt my heart!!  So we did.  There were a bunch of smiley, standard, looking at the camera poses. But this was by far my favourite.

Not to be outdone by her brother….this little girl needed a photo with her Papa.  All set to take my shot and she grabs onto her Dad’s nose and giggles like a crazy person.  (Perhaps a little back story.  Moments before her Dad said he wouldn’t be able to be a model because his nose was too big.) Haha!

Just because the colours have gone does not mean we need to stay inside.  Nothing is better than that fluffy white stuff as a background for family photos. Please contact for more details. info@k-photo.ca

I have been meeting up with this family pretty much every year since their oldest child was only a week old.  And seriously, she is going to be taller than me soon!! I love hanging out with these guys….it is always an adventure.  Just check out those smiles!!

When this family invited me to do an at-home session I was super excited. Even more so when I found out they had a new little fur baby.  This little ball of fur was so adorable!! Appropriately named “Dots”.  The girls are usually quite goofy for me….and no different being at home.  I don’t even know whose idea it was to all hop in the hammock.  But let me tell you, it was HILARIOUS!! 

Just because the leaves have fallen, and weather has turn cooler – that doesn’t stop the outdoor photos!  Currently prepping for first snow sessions.  If you are interested in wintery outdoor photos – please let me know! info@k-photo.ca And of course, follow along on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with what’s going on.

 

So I am pretty darn proud of my gal for growing and growing that big mop of hair until she was able to donate a large chunk for cancer wigs.  14 inches, to be exact.  And if you can imagine…it only took her 2.5 years to do it!  If only MY hair would grow that quickly.  We visited The Hair Bar in Kanata for our post-donation haircut.  The stylists there are all so awesome.  Her locks of hair were sent off to Pantene Beautiful Lengths for the second time.  She was very happy to have a shorter cut for the summer.  And has already been talking about when she can donate AGAIN.

That hair! Those cheeks!! I absolutely fell in love with this little guy.  The family wanted a keepsake of their baby boys one month birthday.  So that’s just what we did.  I have to admit, you never know how things will go when photographing an older newborn.  But this little guy gave us a bit of a fuss to begin with…but then totally passed out for the duration of his 1 month birthday shoot.  I have no idea how the rest of the day went.  He probably kept Mom and Dad quite busy.  Haha!  And let’s not forget how helpful his big sister was!  She could definitely tell great stories. I love that age where they just tell it like it is.  No filter. Anyways, we were ALSO lucky enough to involve Grandma and Grandpa in the photo session.  Always important to capture those multi-generations.  I had a little trouble choosing some favourites to share.  Did I mention how adorable his little face is??  

Now booking outdoor fall family photos and small events. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to set up a consultation or have any questions.  And remember, follow along on Facebook and Twitter or sign up for the mailing list www.k-photo.ca to hear all announcements K Photo and Design.

We wanted to include this couple’s first baby in their newborn session.  And with how unpredictable animals can be, we thought it be best we do that first.  But what a little pro this doggie was!! She didn’t want to get too close to her baby sister, but was happy to sit beside her – with some space.  And once that was out of the way, this new baby girl just settled in for a nice little nap.

I always check in with parents in regards to specific colours that should be used for wraps or backdrops.  Some have a theme they are going with, or a colour they absolutely HATE.  But when asked if pink was okay – I got the go ahead.  As mom’s wedding dress was even pink!  No complaints from this wee babe – she must have agreed with pink.  Honestly – just look at that sweet little face!!!  Absolutely adorable!! 

If you were thinking you missed out on some outdoor winter family photos – guess again.  I think we have another week – or 2 (maybe) that we could set something up, if mother nature cooperates.  And of course, we schedule newborn session all year round.  Newbies are best photographed when they are brand new.  Generally within the first two weeks.  Most book their sessions while they are still pregnant.  Please contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca

One of my silent auction families booked themselves in for an outdoor portrait session.  Yay!!  (So if you have bid on a gift certificate, and WON – please don’t forget to book your session!)  I was so happy to work with these guys – they were hilarious!!  And you could definitely tell that dog was the baby of the family.  Any photo we attempted to not include himself in….he’d figure out a way to wander in somewhere.  The kids were quite familiar with this trail I had chosen as the backdrop for their photos.  I guess they are avid bike riders, and took this trail a little while back.  I was told all about their adventures, and how they got a flat tire and had to walk back.  The boys like to name their off road trails.  This one was named “Africa”.  Not sure why – we didn’t see any safari animals.  Which is probably a good thing! 

With this blanket of white snow out there – it is the PERFECT backdrop for your family photos.  Don’t delay in booking!!  You never know what is coming our way (weather-wise).  And of course, I am always booking in-home newborn sessions – no matter what the weather is.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at info@k-photo.ca  or join the mailing list at www.k-photo.ca  I look forward to chatting!!

I have been photographing this family since these gals were only a few days old.  They have always been quite shy about having their photos taken.  But I think after 5 years…they’ve finally gotten familiar with how weird I am!!  Haha!  I had a great time with this family.  And seriously – don’t their eyes just SPARKLE??  Mom and Dad of course are primping the girls to look their best and then little sister just pulls the hat straight over her face!!  Haha!  I am so glad that photo made it to their 2017 holiday cards!! 

My annual Fall mini sessions were a HUGE success this year.  If you would like to be added to the mailing list in regards to next years event, please sign up on my website: www.k-photo.ca
