Chloe and Austin are awesome. Chloe came to my studio with bunches of enthusiasm, bursting with smiles. She just couldn't wait to get her photo taken, especially with her sparkly reindeer antlers. She really wanted to make a funny face which is without a doubt a fantastic capture of Chloe's sparkly, happy personality.
At ten years old, Austin is already cooler than I am. I was able to get him to smile and even got one goofy tongue sticking out image. I can foresee in the future this little man's coolness growing even more!
Here are the photos from their holiday session. Enjoy!
I look forward to seeing Brendan and Kobe each year. These two have grown so much since I first started photographing them. I know I always say this, but kids just grow up too fast!
Like me, Brendan and Kobe like to laugh a lot. I never have any problems with making them smile. You'll practically be able to hear their giggles when you look at their photos. And their shark Christmas pajamas are just awesome! I wish I could find a pair for me.
Enjoy their photos.
This year I decided to go super simple with my Holiday Mini Sessions. I wanted to focus on the kids in their Christmas pajamas (because who doesn't like Christmas pajamas?). Easy peasy and super cute.
Blayke and Katelyn are two of my favourite kids. Their big brown eyes sparkle and their smiles are easily shared. I always love photographing them. They make being a photographer so much fun!
Here are the photos from our time together.
I'm sorry to say, I'm not happy to see you. I knew you'd show up again! You and your cold wind and snow just blowing in as if you were actually invited here. Well, you weren't! I did not welcome you back.
Winter, you are my least favourite season. I don't enjoy your activities. I'd much rather just stay inside and knit and yet, you insist I go out. Kids to pick up from school, errands to run, activities to attend, and people to see. Man, do you ever make it hard to do these simple tasks.
And don't even get me started on the winter clothing you make me wear. My winter jacket is gigantic! (See A Letter to My Winter Coat). My boots feel like they weigh a thousand pounds. The only thing I'll concede is that I like to wear hand knit scarves and mittens but I can do that in the Fall too. I don't need you to wear these cute items!
Winter, I hope you don't stick around too long. I hate being cold. Don't you realize how miserable you make me feel? Seriously, just keep your distance and if you do have to be around me, try to at least be somewhat moderate.
Halloween is without a doubt my favourite holiday. It's just the best. Here's my 2017 list of why Halloween is so awesome.
1. Dressing up is so much fun!
2. I love using make-up.
3. Mini chocolate bars.
4. Halloween decorations.
5. Taking my kids trick-or-treating.
6. Handing out candy to little boys and ghouls.
7. All the Spooktacular puns you can make.
8. Pumpkin carving.
9. Eating candy because it's Halloween and I can.
10. Taking Halloween photos of my family.
Why do you like Halloween? I'd love to hear about your Halloween traditions and see your Halloween costumes!
