{sneak peek}

So I think what I need to tell people before any shoot is to leave all expectations about what you want your pictures to look like at the door. Really, when working with kids, especially toddlers and preschoolers, you get what you get!! They are the bosses and what they say goes…for pictures anyway, because the more you try to get them to sit here or stand there, that’s the LAST place they want to go!

This family was great at this. They just went with it and were very easy going. These girls knew exactly what they wanted and what they wanted to do. I truly love that about children. As great as it would be to have kids who just did whatever you said, you wouldn’t end up with pictures that reflected who they were. And that is what makes a photograph great.

I hope this isn’t what “H” thought of me and my camera!!

There’s alot to go through “E”! I’ll let you know when your gallery is ready! Can’t wait for spring and the horses!

{breath of warm air}

I was going a little nutty in my house. It’s been FREEZING for the last 2 weeks. So it was wonderful to get outside today in almost balmy weather! We celebrated our nephew’s 4th birthday by going on a sleigh ride. It was great! Warm weather, great food, family and friends. What more could you ask for?
Here’s a few pics of the days activities.

Even Racoonie got to tag along!More fun running after the sleigh than actually riding on it!Happy Birthday “Duke”!!

Love Ya!

{Yayyyyyyyy!!!!!!}

Whoooo hooooo!!!!!!! My website is now LIVE!!!!!

Check it out here http://frecklefacephotography.ca/

It took weeks of sitting in front of the computer but it’s done and I’m pretty excited! Please be patient with it over the next few days. It may do some wonky stuff, but the kinks should get worked out. And check back once and awhile. I’ll be posting new images all the time.

To celebrate the new website I’ll be extending my special (free sitting fee and 25% off all prints) until the end of March. If you or anyone you know would like to book a session please contact me asap as there will be limited days and times for sessions.

Here’s pictures of “A’s” mini session from this past weekend. I was trying to get closeups for my business card. If you have a preference leave a comment. The picture that gets the most votes will be on my next card!

Thanks to everyone who has supported me through out this business/website building process. My wonderful husband, my children, and both of our families and friends. And to the faces of the people you see in my new website. They have helped me make this dream a reality. I look forward to taking many more pictures of you!!

#4! Yeah!

{me next!}

After “P” saw the photoshoot pictures of “I”, she said, “Me next!!”

So when “I” and “A” were at school out came the camera and back drops and “P” had her own shoot. If we’re just hanging around the house and I want to take pictures the girls don’t really want to look at the camera. If I treat it like a “real” shoot though, they are all over it. I’ll just take whatever I can get, lol!!!

I guess “A” will be next! She’s sure to want a turn as well!

Update on the website: I’m STILL waiting. It’s being set up as I write but it can take up to 72 hours to propagate…does anyone know what that means? If you do please leave me a message to explain it to me! So it’s been over 24 hours, you do the math! Will let you know when it’s up! I know my friend “K” is waiting because she can’t see her gallery until it goes live.
