    Summer is right around the corner! Are you ready for it yet? More importantly, is your wardrobe? Here are some fun and simple updates to add to your closet that will have you summer-ready in no time.

    Sandals

    This is really a no-brainer. The perfect pair of sandals can really take you a long way. From the beach, to a BBQ to a night out at a nice restaurant. Look for something that offers both style and comfort and you’ll be all set. A wedge is always a great idea since it provides both!

    Dresses

    There’s no doubt about it, a dress is the perfect summer outfit. So easy to wear, dresses can be accessorized to look both causal and comfy as well as fancy, depending on your event. Long, short and everything in-between, dresses are a definite summer staple.

    Sunglasses

    Everyone knows they should wear sunglasses all year long to help protect their eyes from the sun. But that becomes especially true with summer’s strong rays. Get yourself a pair that perfectly frames your face shape. If you’re not sure what looks best on you, ask for help from the salesperson. A classic black frame never goes out of style. But also experiment with color, shape and materials for that perfect summertime pair.

    Hard to believe it’s almost June. Which means summer is right around the corner! If you’re feeling some lingering spring fever, here are some fun, family-friendly events to go check out next weekend.

    Head over to Granville Island for the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. In addition to four indoor theatre venues, there will also be a big-top tent and an arts activity village.

    Stars: A Visually Stunning Journey

    If you have an astronaut-in-training, check out the new exhibit at the H.R. MacMillan Space Center. Take a journey and see stars like you’ve never seen them before. Learn all about the life of a star and how it grows into a giant Super Nova. Pretty cool.

  • Pretty Purple Flowers, Spring Family Photos | Vancouver Family Photographer
  • I’m very excited to be joining an inspiring group of photographers in a group called “to the moon and back”. It’s a photo circle and each month we share photos of our little lovelies. It’s an amazing group of ladies, so I hope you’ll follow the circle and check out some of their work.

    There is the most gorgeous spot in Surrey where wild purple flowers and buttercups bloom in abundance at this time of year. It’s gorgeous. I missed last year and wanted to make sure I made it this year to take some pictures of my girls. I’ve started shooting some film again (and I’m in LOVE, you’ll hear more on the blog soon) but I also took some digital portraits. Here’s some, including one for the Sister Love Project (formerly Sisterhood Project).

  • Wednesday’s Style – Kids Photo Style – Vancouver Family Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    When you’re planning your upcoming family photo shoot, it’s important to think about wardrobe options in advance – especially for the kids.  You don’t want to have to fight with them over an outfit on the morning of the shoot!

    Now that it’s spring, color seems to be the obvious choice. But you can also make muted neutrals work when using a bright, vibrant backdrop – like a botanical garden for instance. Here is a selection of clothing choices for the kids – that both you and they will approve.

  • Sunday’s Showcase – Spring Crafts for Kids – Vancouver Family Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    Spring is a time for bright colors, beautiful flowers and sunny days. Bring the beauty inside with some fun and easy crafts you can create with your kids. Let the colors of the season inspire them and remember to take some creative license. Enjoy!

    The chia pet has nothing on this craft! Take some silly photos of your kids, paste them on plastic cups and add some seeds. In no time, they’ll be sprouting green “hair.”

    Nothing says spring more than beautiful flowers. Let your kids create their own colorful bouquets with some of these fun craft ideas.

    All you need is a cut-up egg carton, some buttons and pipe cleaners. Instant bouquet!

    If you have some empty water bottles lying around, you can make flowers just by dipping the bottom into some paint. How clever!

    Butterflies are another sure sign of spring and certainly very craft-able. Here are just a few ideas to try out.
