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

It’s been a while since I’ve met up with these guys.  But they ALWAYS bring their smiles!  And this time around, they brought along a new addition.  What a little sweetie!!  Anyone that knows me, knows that when photographing kids you must work very quickly.  Moving this way and that.  And often times, I don’t ever look where I’m going.  Family all set up, moving leaves around…throwing twigs out of the way to get that nice portrait.  Although this is the first time I pulled up a tree seedling.  I was HORRIFIED as to what I had done…and quickly popped it back into the ground.  Even had nightmares about that poor little tree.  Haha!  I may visit in the Spring to see if it survived.  Although Dad was quick to tell me that I KILLED IT!!  Haha!  And that is why I love hanging out with this family.  Always great to joke around with them.  Smile

These girls are growing SO DARN FAST!! Just a few short months ago…a new baby joined the family. And now – she’s all about discovering new things.  Leaves…dirt…her big sister’s hair.  You name it!  Haha!  What a lovely family though; I always have a GREAT time when I get together with this bunch.  And even though the weather was not 100% cooperative, I was glad to capture these moments before the rain decided to hit.  How adorable can you possibly be?? Smile

After scheduling, rescheduling and and then rescheduling again…I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to see these guys this year.  But it all worked out in the end.  And seriously – what a BEAUTIFUL day!  Not even a mouse could ruin this day.  And if you know me, I’m not a big FAN of little critters like that.  I can’t believe how big this little guy has gotten since the last time I saw him.  And big sis, as charming as ever.  Haha!  I just love that gal!! Mom and Dad are alright too.  Haha!  I always seem to have a good time with this bunch.  And just look at the smiles!! Open-mouthed smile

happy family

I was so excited to hear these guys were going to be adding another member to their family.  They definitely know the proper ingredients for cute babies.  I have adored working with their first baby (well, she’s not a baby anymore! Haha!).  But so much fun to see her little personality coming out.  And those big blue eyes….seriously!!  Smile  Now it’s just a waiting game to find out if she is going to be playing with a new baby brother or sister.  As nobody knew (Which is so fun!!).  Although, my guess was a girl.  You will have to wait to find out if I was right though! Winking smile

Perhaps I’m a bit nosey…but I just love to find out about clients.  Their interests, activities, school, jobs…whatever they want to tell me.  I especially find it fun to find out about my little clients.  WELL….I opened the flood gates when somehow the word “Pokémon” got mentioned.  I’m not sure if this kid took a breath!!  He went on and on about his Pokémon cards, and this one and that one.  My kids were never really into card collecting.  And to be honest, I don’t really get it.  But when I asked him if he had “Pikachu” – it was like we had this weird connection.  I was speaking his language.  Haha!  It was quite funny.  I’m sure he’s was still talking about all his cards in the car on the way home.  As he just didn’t stop!  And this is why I know nothing else about this family – aside from their names…and they are pretty darn cute!  Ha!!  You can see that for yourself though.  Winking smile

Seems like forever since I have seen this amazing family. That sweet little baby is now a rambunctious little boy! I think we all got our exercise for the day.  Haha!  And while it was a little chilly (I guess we needed to run around a bit)…and the leaves didn’t cooperate as we would have liked.  It was sure fun to throw them around at each other!! Here’s a few of my faves to show off today.  Smile

Just finished adding my newest edition to my family photo wall.  A photo taken this summer at my Gramma’s 90th birthday party.  It was a spur of the moment type thing, as we were mostly all together.  (Minus my hubby, who didn’t manage to make the trip down with us this year.)  But yet we were able to choose clothing that kinda, sorta matched (or at least didn’t clash!)…and did this all by non-communication!!  It was a pure miracle!  Haha!  But as a photographer…I look at this photo and think – well, this could have been done better.  And yes…it definitely could have.  But sometimes you just have to step back and appreciated the fact that I captured a moment in time of our mostly coordinated togetherness.

My Family

And yes, it would have been SO EASY to just “photoshop” my husband into the mix.  But should it be done?  Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.  In my opinion, anyways.  We had joked about adding him in a Superman costume flying above us.  Haha!  But in my eyes; when you capture a moment in time…it should be just that.  Winking smile

As always, I am a HUGE advocate for displaying your family photos on your wall.  I am currently booking sessions into the Spring.  So let’s get something up on your wall!  info@k-photo.ca
