I can’t believe September is already here! With Jack starting Junior Kindergarten it has been a big adjustment for all of us. I certainly miss having that chatty little man during the day, and I know Connor misses his big brother too. We took some back to school pictures of both kids to honour the occasion (Connor did start preschool after all, at Stepping Stones – the BEST preschool in Barrie in my opinion)!  Here are some of the images captured in early September to mark this very big step towards the rest of their lives. Of course it ends with some silliness from them:P

Introducing sweet little Jenna. We were supposed to meet up for a maternity session but little miss decided to show up early and we turned that session into a fresh 48 instead. She is adorable as can be and it was such a pleasure watching her big brother Noah get to know her – even if his first response was “Eww”.

From my clients: “I got Jenna’s pictures!!! I’m a blubbery mess!! Thank you!” -Nada (Mom)

The majority of my clients book their newborn sessions while they are still pregnant, if you’re ready to secure your spot for beautiful images please contact me today using the link above.

xoxo,
Nicole

Every year we head to my family’s cottage in Sauble Beach. This was a shorter trip just to pick up my grandmother but we still had loads of fun. Between frog catching, building sand castles, getting ice cream cones, and swimming we managed to get “fancy” and take a few portraits. The kids cooperated for roughly 2.7 minutes before getting soaking wet. It was a blast though and we’ll get lots more images when we go back up for longer soon:)

    OMG I love these soooo much!!! These need to go on the wall for sure!!!!

  • Diana Nazareth - July 19, 2014 - 10:51 am

    Nicole, your quick shooting paid off well! These are the sweetest shots ever! Your boys are adorable.

It’s that time of year again…The kids are off to school and family members are patiently waiting for this year’s school portraits. There’s just something about being able to put that picture up on your wall or your fridge for you to see end enjoy everyday. My grandparents loved it when we sent them pictures, and even more when it was one that was unique from the rest that they could have a larger copy at home, and a smaller one at the office.

As much as a volume school photographer photo is great and convenient, it’s not always the most personable experience. Plus, you’re always worrying if little Kate is going to pull out those luscious curls you spent hours creating that morning, or if overambitious Jack is going to stain his nice button up shirt over lunch before their portrait time. Then there’s the lack of choice: you get one image and you don’t get to choose it. Most of the time they look fine, but sometimes they’re all you have. I remember in grade 6 when the photographer refused to let me fix my hair before the portrait, or even see a mirror. I can’t tell you how much I despised that portrait with the dishevelled hair on one side of my head being hung on my families walls and fridges for all to see:(I could not wait until the next year’s portrait day!

How would you like to get them done professionally, and have them look great? No worrying about their hair or outfit between leaving home and getting their portrait. No worrying about the choices not being sufficient. No worrying about them being the same as last year. I can promise you that you will have multiple poses to choose from, your own personal online gallery of images, and the personal care I put into all my sessions to make sure mom&dad AND child are happy. Your portrait session with Nicole Kathlyn Photography will be a positive experience rather than just a “picture day”. How about those of you who have home-schooled children? This is a perfect solution for professional portraits to send to friends and family, and an annual opportunity.

Back to School mini sessions are now booking in Barrie! There will be awesome props like an antique desk, books, an apple or two, and of course we will also photograph your child on their own (no props) so they are the star of the portrait. All your images will be available for viewing in an online gallery and you will receive the final high resolution edited images to print from as you wish. There are sibling add-on pricing for larger families, so no need to be spending hundreds of dollars for each child’s portraits.

Back to School Mini Sessions in Barrie

Say NO to boring, identical school portraits, and YES to unique true-personality back-to-school portraits you know you and your family will LOVE! Email inquiries@nicolekathlyn.com to book your spot today!

xoxo,
Nicole
