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??

When I was contacted to join this family for ANOTHER newborn session…I was beyond excited!!  Baby number 3!  AND another boy!!  They definitely know how to have adorable baby boys, why stop at two?  I was surprised when I met this little guy though.  He looked SO much like his older brothers….but a blondie!!  Such a little sweetheart.  And big brothers were so pleased to help out.  Well, okay – middle bro was happy to help in very short bursts.  Haha!  But it was all in good fun.  I did manage utilize some of my new little crochet props.  I felt the diaper cover and little monkey turned out quite nice.  Anyways, I had trouble narrowing down a few to share…but these are the top 11.  Haha!  One of which is one of my favourite family photos I’ve taken to date.  Aren’t they completely adorable?!?!  

Now booking summer 2018.  If you’re looking to set up a newborn, family, children session…or even a small event or baptism – let me know!!  I can send along all the information you need.  info@k-photo.ca  And of course, feel free to follow me on facebook or twitter to keep up with what’s new.

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

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!!

“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!!

Always happy to get the call that there is another baby on the way.  I hadn’t seen this family since their baby boy, well….was a baby!  He is definitely full of beans now at 2 years old.  (Hard to believe he was THIS baby!)  He kept himself busy by baking “cookies” with his pot and spatula as Mom and I tried to settle his lil’ sis.  I think she had pretty much decided before I arrived that all she wanted to eat and cuddle all day long. Luckily, in between feedings we managed to snap a few cute photos.  My favourite part has always been capturing and creating the Fingers+Toes collage.  Every single one is unique.  And for this one, I particularly fell in love with the little photo of the back of her neck with this little wispy hairs.  Sooooooo cute!!  

Oh…and before I forget, the blanket shown below was made by her 90+ year old Great Grandmother and saved for her before she passed.  Definitely a special heirloom, as she could hardly see as she was finishing it up.  I was told she didn’t even know that there was a baby girl on the way!  She must have had a sixth sense.  It was soooo pretty and dainty.

The weather is getting warmer and I’m beginning to see a lot more green arriving every day.  This is the perfect time to start thinking about outdoor family photos!  Now booking for Spring/Summer of 2017.  And of course, ALWAYS taking newborn bookings.  Drop me a line, we can chat! info@k-photo.ca

Introducing a NEW location you can view K Photo and Design’s artwork.  Baby Snuggles 3D/4D Ultrasound facility gives you the opportunity to see your baby before he/she arrives!  They offer various different packages allowing you to hear your baby’s heartbeat, gender determination, you can even bring home your ultrasound pictures!  I love matching up the ultrasound photos with a baby’s newborn images to see the resemblance.  They also make a pretty nice prop to use for maternity photos.  Just saying. Winking smile

So if you’re thinking of finding out if you are carrying a boy or girl, give Baby Snuggles a call – tell ‘em I sent you!  Smile

 

Expectant mommies are best photographed at around the 34th-38th week, before you start to feel “too-pregnant”.  You will have a nice round bump by this time depending on if you are on your first, second or even third baby.  And don’t forget to book your newborn session!!  New babies are best photographed within the first week.  They are so teeny and fresh at that point – you don’t want to miss it!  That is why is it best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  Please contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca  I can’t wait to hear from you!! Open-mouthed smile

I think it’s still cold enough to make a Christmas post today.  And then I will be pretty much caught up too.  Yay!!  So this is the second little one I have photographed for this family.  They definitely have the recipe right for handsome boys.  (I can’t believe this was 3 years ago!) Big brother was definitely comfortable with helping me set up my gear.  And then I was treated to a Thomas video.  It was actually a commercial for some track that had a crash in it.  Every time the train crashed he would laugh.  Haha!  He was definitely a busy little boy – and difficult to get him IN the photos.  But we managed just fine.  His new baby brother did not have a care in the world though.  He was so easy going…and obviously LOVED having his photo taken.  So much so…I had a terrible time narrowing down my faves.  So this is what we got! 

Every time I photograph a new baby, I am reminded of how teeny their little features are.  It is so important to capture those moments – as they grow up so darn fast!!  If you are thinking of having newborn photos taken, don’t wait!  It is best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  Send me a message info@k-photo.ca  – I’d love to chat with you!
