Just like that another year has passed. As we move into 2014 I’m looking forward to a lot of big changes around here…

Now it’s time for the end of the year contest. I’ve been sifting through images deciding what some of my favourites are and now it’s your turn to help me decide.

The Prize(s):

(1) The grand prize winner (person with the highest number of votes) will receive a complimentary 2014 premium session AND a 16×24″ canvas of their favourite image from that session

(2) One runner up (person with the second highest number of votes) will receive $100 towards their choice of session with Nicole Kathlyn Photography in 2014

A couple of rules…

– Prizes are not redeemable for cash
– Voting is open from January 22nd-28th, 2014 (ending midnight EST)
– I will announce the winners on January 29th at 9pm
– You have a chance to vote once per person using the poll below. I will tally the votes and announce the winners on the Nicole Kathlyn facebook page so be sure to “like” it!

2014-01-22_0001Be sure to pass the links to both this post and the facebook page on to everyone you know, the more people who vote for you the higher the chances are that you will win!

NKD_6502I’m taking part in a photography project along with several other photographers across the globe. The goal is to post one photo each month, along with a poem we write ourselves or a selected poem from any source we feel best reflects our image.

Take a look at some of the other works created as well:

Snow. Lots and lots of snow. Two and a half feet of it (across the entire backyard) to be exact.

Snow = rosy cheeks, cold fingers, and happy little boys

This is one of many personal photography projects I’m taking part in. My kids are well documented but I just want some more candid moments captured so I joined a lovely group of photographers in a 10 on 10 project. Be sure to check out Tam Lovebert’s 10 on 10 and follow the blog circle around:)

I’ve been meaning to share this space for a while, but between the holidays and busy season I just never had a chance.

The playroom, or “my brand new so much fun room” as Jack likes to call it, has been a long time coming. I wanted a space to contain the toys as they were taking over our house (and stepping on tiny metal cars is not my idea of a good time). I also wanted a space away from the studio that Matt could take the boys for periods of time when I had sessions if they weren’t leaving the house. Coincidentally, Jack decided he wanted Connor to share a room with him at the same time we were trying to decide where the playroom could go – problem solved! The boys are happily sharing a room (and sleeping even better as a result!) and Connor’s old room was turned into a space for them to create, play, and use their imaginations.

Signature Studio Newborn session with Barrie Newborn Photographer, Nicole Kathlyn Photography.

Barrie Newborn Photographer AT

“Working with Nicole for a newborn photoshoot was an absolutely positive experience. Her professional approach, comfort working with newborns, and excellent sense of artistic style barely begin to capture the reasons for selecting Nicole as our photographer. Without a doubt, we would easily recommend Nicole as our family photographer going forward and would encourage others to see for themselves. Thank you, Nicole, for capturing such fleeting precious moments of our little one and us so elegantly” – Charles and Angela (Mom & Dad)

This darling girl was a dream to photograph. At only 10 days old she was super sleepy. 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.

xoxo,
Nicole
