    Halloween is so much fun! Between the costumes, decor and the candy, what’s not to love? If you want to get some great photos of your family without breaking the bank, try creating your own photo shoot. Here are some fun ideas to help get you started.

    Pick a location. You can do one or multiple, but just make sure to pick out spots in advance. If you’re going outside, be prepared for various changes in the weather when selecting costume options. You don’t want the little ones to freeze just for photo’s sake. If you’re staying indoors, set-up a dedicated photo shoot space. Perhaps put up a solid screen, large sheet or even some fun Halloween pumpkins, ghost and witch decor to serve as a backdrop. Just make sure whatever you choose doesn’t overpower your subjects!

    Add fun props. It is a Halloween shoot after all, so go a little over-the-top with it! Funny wigs, hats, glasses, masks and more all serve as great accessories to add to your kids costumes. Get a few inexpensive Halloween decor items such as pumpkins, black cats, treat bags, skeletons and more to use as props during your shoot.

    Play music. To help get the kids to loosen up a bit (especially while you’re behind the camera) put on a fun mix of Halloween-themed tunes to get them loosened up and dancing around. You can find playlists online to help really set the mood.

    Enjoy your Halloween photo shoot and make it a yearly tradition!

    Halloween is quickly approaching and everyone is trying to figure out what they’re going to be. In the midst of gathering items for costumes, trick-or-treaters, parties and more, take some time to sit down and do some fun Halloween-themed crafts with your kids. Here are some ghoulishly great ideas to try!

    Turn your kids into spooky monsters. Well, not really, but you can transform their sweet photos into something more scary. Leftover photo proofs from class picture day work well – or any close-up headshots you have. Let you kids have fun decorating their photos and transforming their own images into witches, ghosts and more. It’s probably even more fun for kids to transform their siblings photos – you never know what ideas they’ll come up with!

    Continuing with our photo theme, have your kids help you create your own Halloween photo booth. This is perfect if you’re having a party and want a place for everyone to take photos. All you need is some poster board, colorful coverings and your imagination. You can cover the board with a disposable Halloween-themed tablecloth and then add your own personal touches such as streamers, balloons, pumpkins, black cats and more.

    A good photo booth needs props. You can find a variety of printable props online but crafting your own funny masks, hats, wigs and more is a lot more fun. Have a happy and safe Halloween!

  • Wednesday’s Style – Spruce up your Autumn Wardrobe – Men | Vancouver Family Photographer, Fall Family Photos
  • wednesdays style

    We can all use a little help with our wardrobe every now and again. This is especially true for the guys in our lives. The fall is a great time for a closet clean-out, taking stock of what you have and what you need. Here are some new staples every guy should have in his wardrobe this fall.

    Of course, the fall is all about layering. So men, you’ll need to have some sweaters, sports jackets and button-down or polo shirts in your arsenal. Pairing a blazer and polo with a great pair of jeans is an effortlessly classic yet casual outfit perfect for many occasions.

    You’ll also need some go-anywhere shoes. Yes, sneakers have their place, but a great pair of slip-on loafers or a pair of oxfords can also be dressed up or down. They come in so many styles now, they’re not as stuffy as you may think – we promise!

    Let’s face it – it can get chilly really fast in the fall. So make sure to have a versatile scarf that you can pair with a sweater or blazer. In addition, a fun hat can really complete your fall look. Not to mention, keep you protected from a strong gust of wind (or the pouring rain).

  • Wednesday’s Style – Spruce up your Autumn Wardrobe – Ladies | Vancouver Child Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    Let’s face it, most of us probably have closets packed to the brim with clothes we don’t ever wear (and some may still have price tags!) It’s time to reorganize your wardrobe to include clothes that you actually want to wear and that are versatile enough for a range of scenarios. This fall, spruce up your style with some of these basic staples that are anything but.

    Sweaters are one of the most necessary item for the fall. You never know when the weather is going to turn, and you want to be prepared. A fantastic, chunky sweater looks great paired with skinny jeans, cargo pants and even layered over dresses.

    A killer pair of boots is also another fall must-have. Knee length, booties or somewhere in-between, a great pair of boots will take you through the seasons and can be dressed up or down, depending on the situation.

    Accessorize – a long scarf can really help enhance any outfit. Wear it for comfort and wear it for style! Cross-body bags are both stylish and functional, while a statement piece of jewelry such as a chunky necklace or oversized ring will complete any look. Bonus points if it features the beautiful jewel toned colors of fall.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Styling your Early-Fall Photo Shoot – Ladies Edition
  • wednesdays style

    Now that the weather is feeling a bit crisp, it’s time to start thinking about your Fall-time family photo shoot. There are so many fun ideas for locations, but once you’ve nailed that down, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear.

    Today we’re focusing on the ladies in the family. There are so many great outfit options out there and with Fall weather, the trick is to layer. Sweaters are always an easy option. You can pair a chunky, soft sweater with a crisp white or chambray button-down for a layered effect. Play around with the bottoms – this can easily go with a pair of skinny jeans and booties or a knee-length skirt, dark tights and boots.

    If you want to layer in a different way, try a dress with a long, colorful scarf in deep, rich tones. If a dress isn’t your thing, a simple knit top paired with jeans or leggings also looks great with a chunky scarf.

    Hair should be kept natural. If you don’t want to keep it down, try a messy topknot or a casual ponytail or braid. Whatever you do, have fun taking your pictures – it will shine through on film.
