• Candid Family Portraits, S Family | Vancouver Child & Family Portraits
  • Time flies. Especially when you have young children growing and changing. I’m so lucky to have met this family in Jaco, Costa Rica. They are amazing. We only get to see them once a year, but it’s always a blast and my daughter has the best time playing with their two little sweeties. Can’t believe how much they’ve changed since I photographed them last March. This is the 3rd time I’ve captured their family – lucky me. You can see some past sessions here, and here.

  • Sunday’s Showcase – How to Style Your Coffee Table | Vancouver Family Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    We all have one somewhere in our living space – the coffee table. To some, it’s just another piece of furniture while to others, it’s like an ever-changing art installation. Here are some tips on how to style your own coffee table to suit your tastes and decor. And remember, all of these items are easy to change up as often as you like.

    Make it personal – display some of your favorite items. Perhaps you have a much-loved vase, paperweight or decorative object. Use these items to create a unique display in your home.

    Books are an easy way to add color and interest to your table. Plus, an intriguing book may catch the eyes of your visitors and spark up a conversation. A signature album from your child or family photo session would make a perfect addition to a coffee table. I know that’s where I keep mine for folks to flip through whenever.

    Fresh flowers are always welcome. So as not to overwhelm the space with a large, tall arrangement, use a small bud vase or even float a few petals in a shallow vessel.  Flowers not only bring in color, but also add a fresh scent.

    Another way to add scent and warmth is with candles. There are so many varieties of beautiful candles on the market that it’s easy to create a mood just by switching up your scents. As the weather gets warmer, fresh, clean scents are the way to go.

    A beautiful tray is a fantastic way to pull all of these items together. You can use it create a vignette of books, flowers, candles, etc. Play around with your displays, placements and objects and use your imagination to create a space that’s special to you!

  • Sunday’s Showcase – Easter Basket Ideas | Vancouver Child Photographer
  •  sunday showcase

    When we think of Easter baskets, we usually think of lots of candy. Chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, marshmallow chicks and more. But if you’d rather your kids not go into a sugar coma, why not pad the basket with other fun items they can use instead of eat? Here are a few ideas to help make this year’s baskets the best yet.

    Of course, give the kids what they want – which is candy! But use it sparingly and aim to stimulate their minds. Books are always a great idea. Little kids love board books and many older kids have favorite series or characters that they love. Get a few of their favorites, tie them together with a ribbon and you’ve got a great gift.

    Since the weather is getting warmer, another fun idea is items they can use outside such as sidewalk chalk, bubbles, sand pails and the like. You can use the pail as the basket base and fill it up with outdoor items including sunglasses, hats and more.

    Things that kids can create is always another great ideas. Small Lego sets, art kits, sticker books and crayons will foster creativity in your kids. Add in some colorful paper so they can make Easter crafts after receiving the basket – maybe they can even create place cards for the dinner table.

    There are so many non-candy options out there for all ages. Adding these into the basket will help promote your child’s creative side as well as keep the cavities away!

  • Themed Child Photo Session | Vancouver Child & Family Photographer
  • I wish I had this prop all to myself. How cool is the vintage carousel horse and flowing ribbons? These were captured at the Sweetlight Collective workshop in southern California. It is one of my favourite sessions during the workshop as it was so beautiful, and so unique. Love the looks on this little girl – smiling isn’t always needed in portraits to truly capture a child.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Create an Over-the-Top Easter Bonnet | Vancouver Child Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    Since Easter is on it’s way, why not do a fun and creative Easter-themed craft with your kids? It’s a perfect craft idea for one of the rainy spring days we’ve been having. Easter bonnets have been part of the holiday outfit for many years and there are so many variations out there. Of course you could go for classic, but why not create something fantastically over-the-top? Here are some ideas to help you and the kids make some outrageous hats.

    First you’ll need the base. You could go to an off-price retailer to find a plain and inexpensive hat or you can go to the craft store to buy a styrofoam hat-shaped form in which to build on. If you really want to DIY, just use a trusty paper plate. Once you have the base (and a glue gun), the fun can really begin. Let your kids come up with some themes they really love and just take it from there. You can do all-Easter and create a hat that resembles a basket complete with chicks, chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. Or a Spring-themed hat with loads of colorful flowers, butterflies and the like.

    Don’t forget, boys can get in on the action too. Perhaps make theirs a baseball hat. They can go with a favorite sports theme like baseball or hockey, make a Lego hat or even dinosaurs or cars. The only thing that could possibly limit you is your imagination. Go wild and then remember to do a mini photo shoot where your kids can show off their creations and where you can get some wonderfully memorable shots to marvel at for years to come.
