• Sunday’s Showcase – Family Vacation Keepsakes – Vancouver Family Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    This is the time of year when most people go on memorable summer vacations. Of course, they’ll be plenty of picture-taking when away. But what to do with them all when you get back home?

    One fun idea is to create a photo memory box. Create prints of some of your favorite images of vacation to decorate the box. Then inside, add more prints of important moments, fun places visited, etc. along with trinkets from vacation. This can be anything from seashells, matchbooks, ticket stubs, brochures and more.

    An alternate idea – but along the same lines is to make a shadowbox filled with photos and memorabilia from your trip. You can display it for all to see and can even have each child make their own special one to keep in their rooms.

    They’re both great ways to create unique keepsakes to look back on whenever the mood strikes.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Live in Color – Vancouver Family Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    Sometimes we tend to shy away from color in our daily wardrobe, preferring muted neutrals like black and gray. But it’s time to stop being afraid of color and embrace it – whether it’s an entire outfit or just a shoe or handbag.

    Both brights and pastels are on-trend this season, so here are some ideas on ways to incorporate them into your own look. Those 10+ black shirts and pants you probably own can stay in the back of the closet for a little while at least!

  • Sunday’s Showcase – What to do – Vancouver Family Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    I’m sure by now you’re starting to think – what are we going to do with the kids all summer? Here are just a few events that can help fill up your summertime calendar and ensure no one is bored for too long.

    Rock of Ages

    Relive your youth and take the kids to see Rock of Ages playing at the Granville Island Stage. Practically every 80’s rock song you can think of is in this fun, zany musical that will have you dancing in the aisles (much to the embarrassment of the kids!) The show plays through July 30th, so you can see it more than once!

    Picasso: The Artist and His Muses

    Teens and tweens interested in art will appreciate Picasso: The Artist and His Muses, opening at the Vancouver Art Gallery. This is the most significant exhibition of the artist’s works ever presented in Vancouver. Here you’ll see the role of the six women that were most important to Picasso’s artistic development. Painting, drawings, prints, sculptures and more will be on display. This is surely one exhibit not to be missed.
