The calendar may SAY it’s the first day of Spring…but taking a peek outside, I would say it doesn’t LOOK like Spring.  Sounds like the perfect day to round up the last of my Christmas babies.  Well, this little guy was ALMOST a Christmas baby.  Mom was scheduled for a C-section the week before Christmas because this little trouble maker was breach.  She goes in to be prepped and would you believe they tell her baby has flipped and send her home?!?!  So they played the waiting game.  And waited.  And waited.  Until finally this little turkey decided to arrive in the New Year!!  I couldn’t imagine planning for a Christmas baby, and actually having to wait until the following year!!

But I tell you, this little sweetheart was worth the wait.  He had the cutest little features, and such a pleasure to work with.  Just look at how adorable he is!! Smile

I am itching to get outside for some Spring/Summer portraits! If you were thinking of having your baby or family photographed when this snow disappears, please contact me to reserve your spot.  I look forward to hearing from you!!

This is the second time I am meeting up with this family – and MAN do they have cute babies!!  Just look at this adorable little guy from a few years ago!  And oh how HE has changed!  Big sister is still as funny as ever.  I was trying to get her to sing a song to get the little ones happy and ready for their big shot together.  She starts singing “Heeeeey sexy ladeh!”  I laughed so hard, because that is also MY daughters favourite song at the moment.  But we did manage to get them all together.  Sitting.  At the same time.  Even if it did involve holding the TV remote control.  But you do what you gotta do.  And then the new addition to this family was ready to snooze after all that excitement and we managed to catch some really sweet photos.  I just wanted to squish his little face!! (But that is frowned upon…so I didn’t.)  Winking smile

Newborns are best photographed when they are between 5 and 10 days old.  They are sleepier at that stage and will agree to be curled up into those cute little poses.  Therefore it is BEST to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant.  If you would like to set something up for your new arrival, please contact me as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.  I look forward to hearing from you!  Smile

Happy New Year!!!  I know I’m running a bit late this year…but upgrading your equipment never comes easy.  I’m STILL trying to get my programs all up and running properly.  (Well, they’re running…just not how *I* like them!)

But aside from all that.  I just wanted to thank all the amazing families I had the chance to work with this year.  Being in my third year of business I met a lot of people for the second and third time.  Which was SO much fun!  I also stepped out of my comfort zone and held a day of mini sessions this past fall.  AND, happy to report it was a success.  I think it will become an annual event.  (If the weather cooperates.)

So here’s a my 2012 faves.  Hope you see yourself there!  Open-mouthed smile

favourites of 2012

And all the best in 2013!!  I look forward to meeting up again! Smile

I’ve had such a string of newborn baby boys since even before Christmas, that it was so much fun to play with a little girl for a change.  She had such a sweet little petit face, and her expressions were so funny.  I just fell in love with her!  This gal was so interested in what was going on around her, that she didn’t feel like she wanted to nap at all!  But eventually she slipped into a nice little snooze and easily became one of my most cooperative little ones.  Just look at that adorable little face!!  Open-mouthed smile

Three years ago today my third baby was born, K Photo and Design.  I have had an amazing time meeting new people and creating great friends.  It is such a wonderful experience to see some of these babies grow from tiny little peanuts, to talkers, to walkers.  This year was the first year I’m starting to see little siblings coming into this world.  And I am so honoured to be called on again to capture these first few days.  Also a welcomed chance to catch up with these families again.  Open-mouthed smile

I had so much fun joining in on the celebration at FAB BABY GEAR this morning.  Okay, it was closer to this afternoon…but I’m not sure I would have made it in the door had I gone earlier!  The crowds of people were incredible.  I loved seeing all the kids walking around with their balloons.  Smile

Anyways, the main reason for my trip was the draw the winner of the Essential Newborn Photo package.  And the winner is:

Happy New Year everyone!!  What a year this has been for me!  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many expanding bellies, lots of wee babes and a pile of families.  You can now view my work at quite a few places around the city.  3D Miracles ultrasound clinic, Ottawa Integrative Health Clinic, Hands on Health massage therapy, and now at FAB Baby Gear!  (You can also purchase newborn packages directly through them AND the packages are on their baby registry.)

Okay, I have to share some favourites from 2011!!  Open-mouthed smile

Christmas is such a fun time of year, but it can be nerve racking if you cannot figure out what to give someone on your list! This is the PERFECT idea for that person that HAS everything. There’s nothing more unique or personal than offering them a portrait session. PLUS, a little something for yourself. Because seriously – don’t you deserve it?? Winking smile

I had SO much fun with this little guy!  He constantly had his hands doing something.  At one point it looked like he was talking on the phone, then he relaxed them beside his face and he looked so peaceful.  I even managed to catch him playing a little air guitar!  This kid was crazy!  But very content, and he let me play with him until he was tired…and then he let us know he was done.  Smile

This little guy was a rock start at 5 days old.  If you would like to schedule your own newborn portrait session, please contact me while you are still pregnant to ensure availability.  Winking smile

I thought it has been a while since I posted some cool ideas for what you can DO with those photos.  (In hopes that they are not spending their days in an envelope sitting in the back of a drawer.) Winking smile

A coffee table book is a GREAT idea when you have so many favourites you just can’t decide what to do with them.  Each book has 20 press-printed pages, hard cover with photo and is custom designed by me!  It’s fun to have a mix of colour and black & whites – even full page spreads!  The possibilities are endless!

The 7×7 coffee table book:

Or option to upgrade to the 8×10 size:

These books are also GREAT gift ideas!  For full pricing, please check out my website or feel free to contact me.  info@k-photo.ca
