Pepe Le Kunk

For the record, children should be dressed up as fuzzy animals always, all the time! 😎 We were camping at Adam Lake, Manitoba last week and we decided to do a little photo shoot of Ethan dressed up as a Kunk. He’s a kunk because he can’t say “sk”unk yet. Well, that’s not true. He can make the compound sounds, he still just doesn’t do it on principle. hehheehhe… So anyways, he’s our little fuzzy Kunk.

I wanted to get these photos in a forest setting and it was loads of fun. Normally he can be a bit of a punk for taking photos but he was super into it with the costume on. +1 for photo madness. 🙂

A little BTS of the shoot, I brought a light stand and a shoot thru umbrella, but I left half the cover on, essentially making a quick strip box. It was cool because it let the light fall off quick.

We also had the rest of the non-kunk based family there too and I was able to nab a few more shots of the kids.

Here’s the whole set from the camping trip. Take a peek see at the rest of the kunk photos. 😀

Family Campin’ Trip

Well, it’s great to be home! We just got back from a nice family vacation camping trip to our newly beloved Adam Lake in the Turtle Mountains. We just love that camp!! We had a really nice time and took it easy, did some geocaching and hiking and swimming and eating! 😆 As usual, I had the camera and took a few shots. It’s such a stellar location and I highly recommend Adam Lake to anyone! Also, we were able to check out the international peace gardens. It’s quite the place with lots of fun stuff to see and do. All in all, we had great weather and good family memories! 8) Here’s a sample of some shots:

Adam Lake

We were able to sneak away for a few days to Adam Lake, MB for a little camping trip. Located in the  Turtle Mountains, I was skeptical if we were turtley enough for the turtle club! But we were. 😉 In short, Adam Lake campground is chock full of beautiful awesomeness. The camp sites are very well treed and you can’t see your neighbour easily at all, which I love. And, there are awesome hiking trails, one that leads to a wildlife viewing tower. The beach is manicured sand and the water is shallow and warm, the kids could walk out for a long way. Not too mention the $150,000 dollar new play park right near the beach too. The park entrance fee was waved again for 2011 and  fire wood is provided free of charge. The campfire pits are big and have grates across the top for grilling if you so choose. The bathrooms are all up to date, heated and clean. The showers are free!  In short, this is my new favourite campground of all time!! We owe a hat tip to Jenny B for letting us in on her families’ secret campground extravaganza! 8)

The photos are a mix of dSLR & Point & Shoot shots. We also did some light painting with really cool colour changing LED flower lights. They make for a really cool effect. Also there are a couple of HDR shots in the mix, but they are subtle. See if you can spot them. 😆
