Decorating the tree

Its the season once again and of course we took some time out to put up the old XMas tree. This being our first year in Kanata we had to choose a spot. Luckily Matthew’s toy room a.k.a. our living room was available with a lot of space. This years festivals should be good we are expecting the whole family and as well possible some friend will drop by to join in. All and all it will be a great holiday with family and friends.

To start the photo frenzy here are a few pictures from the tree decoration night we had the other day. Enjoy the bokeh photos too.

In the studio

Check it out. I finally got my home studio setup and took some time to shoot the kids and Natalie. Getting to capture images like these is what really makes photography fun. Thanks to Nat I always have great words of encouragement. Without her I would have never continued or proceeded with my career change to photography. I have come a long way since my first shoots.

Thanks Natalie.

Happy Birthday Félicia

Blowing out the candlesHappy 9th Birthday Félicia. This weekend Félicia celebrated her 9th birthday. After this one it is all double digits.

Enjoying the celebration with her and her family were her two friends Skylar and Olivia two girls in her class at school. After playing in and outside for a bit the kids enjoyed a requested meal of spaghetti. Then a tinker bell decorated cake followed by opening gifts and a movie.

Skylar spent the night over and her and Félicia spent the rest of the night talking and giggle all night long, but they weren’t tired in the morning at they were up around 8AM.

All and all it was fun the girld had a good time and the Félicia was happy. Here is a link to the gallery of pictures.

Pumpkin Picking 2010

[portfolio_slideshow size=full, nav=false]
It is that time a year again and you know what that means. Natalie has already started think about Halloween. So we decided to get together with some friends and pick pumpkins at a near by farmers field.

Getting to the pumpkin patch was fun riding in the back of a tractor. Of course Matthew’s fascination with the tractor almost got him run over.

As you can see it was all about the kids. For some reason when kids get to do something by themselves they and we just seem to enjoy it more. For Thea and Matthew it is about how strong they can be lifting the big pumpkins up. I think Thea won.

Even Thea’s mom found here perfect pumpkin.

Ultimately it was Dana who found the best pumpkin out in the distance.
