• W Family | Vancouver & Langley Child Photographer
  • Boys will be boys. Can’t you tell from looking at these photos? Such a blast to work with the Walton family. Their boys were full of energy, and kept me moving. Love how they had me chasing them around their farm in South Langley.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Fall Photo Shoot Locale Ideas | Fall Family Photography
  • wednesdays styleThe fall season can act as an amazing backdrop for a family photo shoot. With all of the colors of the changing leaves juxtaposed against a sunny sky, you can really get some amazing shots. Here are some location ideas for your next fall photo shoot.

    A local park is always a good choice. All of the natural greenery means plenty of trees, leaves and the like. Find some wide open spaces to really let the beauty of the nature shine through.

    If you live near a waterfront location, this can also be a fantastic idea for the fall. The cool air paired with a bright sky gleaming off of the water can make for some truly spectacular shots. If you’re not in a city setting, the beach or lakefront can work just as well. Just make sure to dress for the cooler weather!

    Speaking of the city – the mix of natural elements paired with the backdrop of a tall building, colorful brick wall or even a door can really make your fall photos pop. And if the day happens to be overcast instead of sunny, that can give your photos some really wonderful contrast. Enjoy!

    test 020aFor some good, old-fashioned fall fun, head over to the Olde Harvest Fair at Stewart Farm in Surrey.

  • Sunday Showcase – Easy Meal–Planning Ideas for Back to School | Vancouver Child Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    The first few weeks of a new school year can be pretty hectic. You’re trying to balance everyone’s new schedules, homework, practices and more while working and taking care of the family. The last thing you need to worry about is what’s for dinner. Here are some quick and easy weeknight options that are both healthy and delicious (oh and did we mention quick?)

    One of the best investments you can make for your kitchen is a slow cooker. This isn’t your mother’s crockpot from the 1970′s. Slow cookers have come a long way. There are so many recipe options out there and all you have to do is put the ingredients in, set it and come home to a home-cooked meal. Some great choices are hearty stews with lots of veggies, chili, barbequed pulled pork, chicken dishes and soups (perfect for the upcoming chill of fall). If you need some creative ideas, there are a ton of websites that have quick and easy recipes.

    Another idea is planning a meal around a theme night – such as tacos, pizzas and more. You can prep most of the ingredients the night before and set up an assembly-line, buffet-style where the family can pick and choose their favorite toppings and fillings for themselves. Throw in a side salad and you have a perfectly balanced dinner.

    Make the task of packing lunches easier on yourself. On weekends, ask the kids to come up with a list of what they’d like for the week then let them help shop for and prepare the food. When kids have the chance to be involved in the process, they can take ownership of it and be proud of their accomplishments. Here’s to a wonderful new school year!

  • Wednesday’s Style – How to Prep for School Picture Day| Vancouver Family Photographer
  • wednesdays styleBack-to-school time is filled with excitement (fingers crossed we’ll be back in school before we know it!) – new classes, friends, clothes and even pictures. Sure, your kids have enough to worry about without stressing over their class photos. So here are some helpful tips on how to prep for school picture day – making it as painless as possible for them!

    First thing’s first – the outfit is key. We’ve shared some great clothing choices for girls and boys here and here. Kids should look current yet classic – nothing too trendy or outrageous that will have them exclaiming “What was I thinking?!” in the years to come (although I’m sure we’ve all had this moment). Too many prints or colors can look jarring so stick to one statement and accessorize around it. Once the outfit is set, it’s time to think about grooming.

    Again, this is not the time to experiment too much. Kids should look like their everyday selves, yet polished. Simple, natural hairstyles look best. And make sure you get them to brush their hair – or at least slip them a comb!

    Finally, it may look silly but practicing the smile can be key to a great shot. The face should be relaxed – no over-sized grins please. And just think – don’t blink! Nothing’s worse than than getting the pictures back to see half-closed eyes. But if any small mishaps occur – there’s always the re-take day! Enjoy!
