My Family Photographed

I finally after almost 3 years got family photos done. An amazing friend from work and her talented crew of ladies, took my boys and I out one fine Friday afternoon to the River Valley, here in Edmonton, AB. I had no rules, no agenda, no poses; I simply wanted photos that captured my boys and I in our own realm...simply being us. It was fantastic...the boys were off the wall the girls were patient, couldn't have asked for a better session. So Chantelle, Jackie and Jen of Get What You Pay For Photography showcased their wicked work in the slideshow below...take a peek and show these girls some Facebook love as well. Walton Family Summer 2012 This truly made me tear up. The photos are fantastic and everything I wanted them to be. The caught us as we are...silly, crazy, unscheduled and us. I hope you love them as much as I do. xo Kel

Where has the time gone?

It's been forever since I last posted a rambling or two. 9 months to be exact. A lot has changed; developed; morphed; since our last meeting. Thing 1 has successfully advanced to grade 2; had a great lacrosse season, saving all of his goal scoring until the end of the year, better late than never I guess. He's the catch of all the little ladies in his grade and seems to have a new "girlfriend" every other day...I can't keep up! lol! Thing 2 is super stoked to be starting preschool this fall; this mama...wishing the time could stand still a little longer. He cheered mercilessly from the stands while his brother was getting rocked or scoring goals on the lacrosse field. Between you and me, he's dying to play and by the time he gets there he will be FANTASTIC like his brother. So what have "I" the mama, the chauffer, the cook, maid, doctor, nurse, lawn mower, tree pruning full time working mama of two been much time do you have!!! It's been a roller coaster ride that I could forget some parts and relish in others. I put my photography on hold while I healed somewhat and got over the insanity of the kids schedules. But here's a little snippet of things of days gone past... My New Logo
Baby Kesler
My nephew
An amazing friend and her family
And sweet baby Everleigh
I'll have some more to share tomorrow... Have an amazing evening! xo Kel

Greetings from the land of insanity

Hey there! it's been a while I know. Life somehow has mistakenly taken an off roading trip and unfortunately for me and the kiddos, we left the map at home. That said, this is what I have been up to for the last oooh say month or so.

Cattails & Muskrats

A dear friend of mine is expecting his first baby due any day now. Mama was due on September 24. It is now September 28 and as far as I know, Mama is still preggers and both are anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Z.

Have a mentioned I love the colors of fall...browns, the burgandies, burnt orange and mottled yellows amongst the leaves...the softness of the light in the late afternoons...mmmm....makes me all daydreamy.

Here are few photos from our very impromptu maternity session. Mama day of the shoot was 40 weeks + 2 days and she was still smiling.

Mama radiated through the whole shoot. I am so excited for when Baby Z will make her grand appearance!

Have a great evening!!

Sugar and Spice...

And everything nice, is what little girls are made of!?!? Right?!?

Well, that's what I thought or maybe the old nursery rhyme needs to be tweaked a little bit for the 21st century; now I am not saying that all girls are not as the rhyme states, I'm just saying one might want to add, "dirt and grime make for a fun time" when it comes to this little cutie below.

I got to spend my first weekend with Miss G and her daddy. We had a blast that weekend. I traded my dress pants, high heel shoes, and fancy shirts for yoga pants, tshirt and sandals and for 3 fun filled hours army crawling through the tall grasses or simply trying to blend in with the round pen to capture some of the shots below.

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great evening!

I Heart Wide Open Spaces

There are no words that can express my love for the prairies. Being a prairie girl born and raised on the family farm, i find a peacefulness and calming essence when I walk amongst the land. Letting the wind tossle my hair, fresh air filling my nostrils and feeling of absolute solitude at my finger tips.

Enjoy the photos below.

Grasshoppers & Wheat Fields

Hard to believe summer is already over and Fall is gracing us with her presence. *Sigh* oh well, at least the colors are much more beautiful and i love the crispness of the mornings.

The boys and I managed some days trips here and there and I played a small amount of ball this year...and for those who know me well I live and breathe baseball and to scale back to only 4 tournaments this summer is HUGE!!

And to welcome Fall and the harvest, I got to capture my friend's beautiful baby belly over this past weekend. She's due in 13 days and looks amazing. Damn her! Lol! Just kidding. I love her and that belly to pieces.

We had such a great time doing this shoot, even when the hoppers decided it would be fun to crawl all over during a portion of the shoot. Oh what we photographers do for a good photo! lol!!

Have an amazing afternoon!
