Chasing West !

I’m a sentimental by heart.
Like a lot of moms out there I have been collecting the girls favourite and my favourite pieces of their clothing over the past 10 years.
Never really knowing what i would do with them but knowing I couldn’t let them go.
Recently a good friend of mine had a gorgeous quilt made and with what? With all the clothes that she too has been collecting!! I thought, perfect!! What a great way to hold on to the sweet memories that the different outfits remind us all of.
You have to check out Lindsay’s site on Etsy , yes fabulous Etsy where you can spend hours upon hours.
Her company is called Chasing West after her two beautiful boys!
I’m already collecting clothes for another quilt to be made. Hmmm this may become a bit of a thing over the years! lol

Be sure to check out Chasing West on Etsy!

Moved to tears

Once in a while someone comes into your life and does something so thoughtful it moves you to tears.
I had the honour of meeting Louise Thompson back in May when her daughter Shawna purchased a family pkg with me.
The family pkg was part of a fundraiser to help raise funds to support a wonderful colleague of mine adopting from Haiti.
During the shoot we talked a bit about my trip to Haiti in January and how much it made an impact on me. After reading my blog post about Haiti Louise contacted me and shared how much my blog post had touched her.
You all need to know that Louise is an incredibly talented artist and has the most gracious heart.
She emailed me this past weekend to share with me that my painting was finished that she was inspired to do, after seeing a photo of this beautiful child on my blog post.
I was teary even before I arrived at her home this morning and knew Id break down as soon as I saw it!
Louise this painting is still moving me to tears as i sit here typing this.
I cannot express how much this means to me and your thoughtfulness to do this for me. You have a huge heart and are so talented and I want more people to know about you!
As I was shooting this photo below to share with you I burst into tears again lol. In the actual photo of this little one, she is wearing an old brown jumper dress but Louise painted it a beautiful yellow because of the hope she sees in her eyes. Ironically Louise this is one of our new accent colours in our new home we are moving to. I continually to believe in signs from above and this today was one for me. HOPE its such a powerful word and continues to move people.
Us Kufske’s cannot wait to move into our cute new home and have the world as our playground and continue to serve in this great world and teach our girls was graciousness and selflessness is. Louise you are a true reflection of this and when I look at this beautiful child hanging in our new home I will be reminded of our trip to Haiti, of newness, of hope of serving and of graciousness.
With overwhelmingly full heart I thank you! xo

Please head over to Louise’s website

Chris, I’m sitting here crying while reading this (aren’t we a pair). Thank you for your beautiful, heartfelt words. I’m thrilled with how much this painting means to you! You’re a very special lady and your work work in Haiti deserved to be rewarded. I’m glad that I could do this for you. With much love, Louise

It’s HERE! {Waterloo Family Photographer}

Click has joined the PASS revolution and you can now receive, view, share, download and order prints super FAST!! All this from the convenience of your smart phone, laptop or desktop. HOW COOL IS THAT?
Dvd’s are on their way out the door. In fact MAc’s latest laptop doesn’t even house a DVD drive.
Another amazing thing , your images are stored on the PASS cloud for 10 years. You can access your images from anywhere.
Now I know this will take some getting used to so please let me know if I can help you in anyway.
I have posted a link to a sample gallery of my hubby and girls for you to take a test drive.
(Just a note when you hit the ‘download all’ button in this sample gallery a screen will pop up that says upgrade for $29.00, Please know that when your images go to this gallery that fee will already have been paid as a part of your pkg. It is NOT an extra new fee I just kept it this way for the sample gallery of my family so people arent tempted to download my cute family, lol)
The password is sample.
I look forward to knowing what you think?

With every gallery that is posted there will be a lovely welcome page as well as instruction pages to follow walking you thru the process.
Here’s what they look like.

Want to order a print? Check out these instructions below.

It’s important to know when ordering prints right from the gallery and not from me directly as I shoot in full frame which means your images are actually an 8×12.
Pls refer to the crop chart below to understand how much of an image you may loose when cropping. For larger prints of other products pls contact me directly.

Photos for Adoption {Day 2} Roseville Estates {Waterloo Family Photographer}

What a fabulous Day 2 we had to finish up the Photos for Adoption day for the Jefferson family . 30 mins each group, donating $100.00 each, for 10 images = AWESOMENESS!
A big thank you again to all those that came out to support this great cause. You helped to raise $800.00!! Another big thank you to the beautiful Roseville Estates for allowing us to use your grounds!

First up Louise’s beautiful family. A wonderful mother’s day gift to an incredibly bright and gracious women. It makes no wonder your hubby calls you Sunshine! xo
(Just a side note , this is a perfect example of using colour in a family shoot! Love how the blues, reds, and whites created character but worked cohesively!)

Next up, Cathy and the girls. I love Cathy, I have had the pleasure of shooting her for approx 3 years now. Cathy is such a giving lady and wonderful mother and daughter, not to mention photographer. Always there to support whatever cause Im in donating away.
Cathy is always happy and relaxed and it was so special for me to have captured the relationship with you and your mom. xo

I was so happy when Christine emailed me to capture her and her main man Andrew. I love my ‘Still Do’ shoots!! I think they are so important to do as you celebrate the years you have been together.
Christine you are a stunning women. And how cute is her son Mr. P that I just had to sneak in at the end of the shoot! xo

Rebecca. You all may recognize this beautiful women who has been a special friend of mine, second shooter, bride and just all around inspiration. Rebecca I have loved getting to know you over the years and watching you grow not only within photography but also as a person. I love these images we captured of you. In light and love! xo

And last but not least is Melissa’s beautiful family!
Melissa, you are always a joy to work with and the joy is even bigger now as you await for the arrival of your first little one. (I cant wait for our beach belly shoot this summer) Im so happy you called on me to capture such a special time.
At the Roseville Estates we celebrated your mom Arlene. You two beautiful women are so easy to photograph and it was so wonderful to help you celebrate being a mom and Gramz to be Arlene!
