2017 brought me many old, and some new friends.  Love me some new baby smell!! And also my Fall mini sessions were a big hit!  Beautiful weather!!  As a bonus,  I just love catching up with these people every year.  The kids grow so quickly!!  And of course, if I can convince my own children to get in front of my camera – I’m winning!    OH!  And let’s not forget – in 2017 I managed to launch my new website!  If anyone knows my technical abilities…this was a HUGE accomplishment!  Haha!  Anyways, it looks like it’s about time to welcome 2018!!  Here are a few of my fave photos from this past year.  If you see yourself – let me know!! 

So many cuties in one post!!!  Of course, please feel free to follow me on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with what’s going on at K Photo and Design.  And if you feel so inclined, you can also check out my new website: www.k-photo.ca

I can’t believe I have not seen these guys since their “little one” was ACTUALLY a little one!  But no matter how much time as passed…they are still one goofy bunch!  Haha!  This gal was telling me all about My Little Pony and who her faves were.  She also hinted that perhaps her brother may know them all by name as well.  But he doesn’t want anyone to know that!    He wants us to believe he’s a LEGO Ninjago fan.  So we’ll go with that!   We have come to that point in the year where we need to talk about deadlines.  If you would like to place an order in time for Christmas delivery – December 15th is the last day for digital images.  Or if you need to buy a gift for that person that has everything – gift certificates are available in ANY denomination.  And of course, feel free to be in the know by following along on Facebook or Twitter.  Currently booking family and newborn portrait sessions all the way into the New Year. Can’t wait to hear from you!! info@k-photo.ca

If any one knows me…when I photograph kids and families, I don’t USUALLY pay attention to where I’m going.  I have gotten a sweater stuck in a burr bush.  My hair pulled by a tree.  I’m sure I’ve stepped in mud or something much worse.  But for this particular family, I was crawling around on my knees in the leaves to get the shot I wanted.  This little boy was SO UPSET that my pants had gotten dirty.  He was horrified that I was walking around with leaves dangling from my pant-legs.  He actually came over, and had to pick all the leaves off for me!!  That’s a good kid to have around.  Someone who values being clean.  I swear I should hire him to take care of me.  Haha!  Thanks buddy!! 

The holidays are just around the corner.  For those difficult people to buy for on your list – K Photo gift certificates are available in ANY denomination.  I am currently booking right into the new year.  Can’t wait to hear from you!  info@k-photo.ca

I have a few families that fight for my first AM slot for my annual Fall mini sessions.  But these guys usually win – as Mom is always thinking ahead.  Usually before Summer is over she is contacting me to get going on organizing the sessions.  Haha!  The kids are always so funny.  Goofy, but well behaved.  I always have such a fun time with them.  Mom asked me if I recognized little bro’s sweater – and I DID.  It was worn by his big brother a few years back for the kids fall portraits. They’re so darn cute!!

Currently booking the last little bit of Fall sessions before the leaves are gone for another year.  If you’re interested, let me know! info@k-photo.ca  And as always, you can keep track of what is going on at K Photo and Design by following along on Facebook or Twitter.

“We have added another munchkin to our brood and would love to have you capture the fleeting newborn stage and update our family photo.”  I couldn’t believe I was hearing this update from one of my favourite families!!  It’s amazing to compare this new little guy to his big brother and sister.  As baby was getting ready for his debut photo shoot his brother and sister kept me busy with stories of their Dad’s hockey career.  What was even funnier was the look Dad gave me….like the majority of that story may not be true.  Haha!  But they did keep me entertained while baby was snacking.  Even suggested I should photograph them wrestling; which I promptly did.  Haha!  What bundles of energy!!  And baby…well he just liked to be held – and eat – and then be held some more.  I think he has Mom and Dad wrapped around his little finger already.  As they should be.

Newborns tend to photograph best when they are brand new, therefore it is best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  Now booking newborn, kids and family portraits sessions.  And please stay tuned to hear about our annual mini session dates coming up this Fall.  Any questions?  Give me a shout!  info@k-photo.ca  Talk soon!!

What a fun family I had the opportunity to photograph late last year.  Baby was a bit fussy, which gave me the opportunity to catch LOTS of baby snuggles.  Even though he was almost 2 months old, he hadn’t lost that new baby smell yet.  And that fuzzy little head?  I couldn’t help but rub it!! (Just a little…Haha!)  Big brother and sister were definitely the helpers we needed.  They were pros at calming and keeping baby entertained.  With both older kids into the hockey scene…it was a must to capture them in their gear.  Which proved to be a challenge to pull that stuff out for two active kids AND keep them quiet so they didn’t wake the baby who had finally dozed off.  But we managed to do it!! Just look at some of the awesome images that came from that day. 

While we enjoy a little bit more Winter – keep in mind, it is still a great time to book your family portraits.  Outdoors in the snow is such an awesome backdrop for families and kids.  Or if that’s not your thing – a cozy lifestyle session at home might be more for you.  Either way – please contact me for more info as to how to book your own Winter portrait session.  info@k-photo.ca  As always, you can keep up with what’s happening by following K Photo and Design on Facebook or Twitter.  I look forward to hearing from you!

It’s been so drab the last few weeks – I thought a little colour would be nice.  And what a MASSIVE amount of colour we managed to find this past fall.  Trees were at the point of losing their colour…but this one AMAZING yellow tree hung on just for us.  The girls just loved hiding behind the big leaves.  After a heavy rainfall – the ground was so wet, it definitely kept mom and dad busy trying to keep the kids clean!!  I didn’t do so well myself.  I think I had mud and water up to my knees!  Haha!  But worth it in the end.  I just loved their little ladybug coats.  Can you get any cuter than that? 🙂

Annual mini sessions are a GREAT way to keep your family photos current.  If you would like to be put on the mailing list for the fall of 2017, please let me know!  info@k-photo.ca  I’d love to hear from you!  🙂

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
