Holy moly!! I had to check my calendar twice!! Could it really be TEN YEARS since K Photo and Design was born?!?! So many amazing families I have met, and stories I have heard. I have to admit…I do feel a little nostalgic when I look back at some of these photos from the past. From my first paying customer (well, his mom paid the bill…haha!) – to my most recent family that I have met up with every year for the last 4-5 years or so.

So in honor of this SPECIAL occasion….please, take the time to go through some of your old photos that maybe you didn’t get a chance to print at the time. And I will send them off to be professionally printed for a wicked discounted price!! (50% off any desk print up to 8×10, and 25% off any wall portrait sized 11×14-20×24.)

I am a firm believer in printing your memories. With all the advanced changes in technology…there is no telling when the media you choose to store your images will become obsolete. Or just plain fail you. #printwhatyouwanttopreserve

Images must be taken by K Photo and Design between 2009 and April 1st, 2019. If you can provide the image number, that would be great. If not, we’ll figure it out. Discount will be made from my 2017 prices. Please note: Your chosen images were put in storage. The images you did not order were purged. This offer expires: May 30th, 2019

2018 had many highlights. First off…we added 2 kittens to our family. I had carpal tunnel surgery on my dominant hand. Making a complete set of working hands! Haha! My daughter donated 14 inches of hair. My son made honor roll. My husband joined a band. And let’s not forget about that tornado!! Still in shock over that. And of course…all of the amazing returning families and new friends my camera had the pleasure of photographing this past year. Cheers, guys!!

Welcoming 2019 with open arms!! If you wish to keep up with what’s happening please follow along on Facebook or Twitter. Or of course…send me an old fashioned email.

Or a boxing day, in this case. Regardless….I just wanted to share a few fun holiday photos. You will notice there is no baking photos. I’m still working on getting that done. Perhaps by New Years!

With being busy and so much going on…I come to look forward to our Christmas cockatail. This year – Christmosas. DE-LISH!!
Every year we try to add a new ornament to the tree. This year because of our kitties – everything was non-breakable. This super sparkly pineapple is my fave!
I won’t deny….our babies were spoiled a bit this Christmas. TOYS EVERYWHERE!! But this troublemaker will play with ANYTHING. Including the ornaments on the tree.
And this little one loves to hide all her toys under the tree skirt. Oh, and pencils too! She got into her sister’s stocking early Christmas morning….pulled everything out…and then tried to HIDE the stocking on her!! Haha! So funny!!
You can’t get through the holidays without some good music. And this was an amazing find this year. A lot of faves on this album!
And while you’re at it….you might as well SMELL like Christmas!! I am a Bath and Body Works fanatic. And this smell is sooooooo good.
We decided to write daily holiday movie/TV quotes on our chalkboard this year. It was fun coming up with them….and also guessing where the quotes are from. #TheGrinch

I know I’m running a bit behind – this is nothing new. But wishing you all a GREAT holiday season!! I hope to meet up with you in the New Year!!

This little guy had thee SWEETEST little face!!  I just adored him!!  He did like to rule his own portrait session though.  He was content to have his photo taken for a little bit.  But preferred snack-time.  Haha!  But honestly….that little face!!  Can you BE any cuter? 

Now booking for 2019! Please contact me if you are interested in setting something up in the new year.  But of course, always time to squeeze in a last minute newborn before Christmas. 

 

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??
