• Wednesday’s Style – Holiday Photoshoot Locations | Vancouver Family Photographer

    There’s still time to take some fun and festive family photos for the holidays. Need some location ideas? Here are some fantastic spots in the Vancouver area that can serve as wonderful backdrops for your holiday card this year.

    If you’re really daring, take the family to Robson Square Ice Rink to do some skating photos. Even if you’re not the best skater, surely you can stand still on the ice for a few minutes! If not, a couple of cozy pictures with hot cocoa as your props will do just fine.

    The Christmas tree will be lit at Jack Poole Plaza in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Brave the crowds and get a truly spectacular shot!

    If you’re not up for the glitzy tree and large crowds, do something more low key and take some shots at a Christmas tree farm. The sea of simple and rustic trees can serve as a festive yet natural backdrop for your holiday card.

    VanDusen Garden’s Festival of Lights is currently on display. Over one million lights have decorated the garden, lighting up the night. There’s practically nothing more magical than that!

  • Sunday’s Showcase – Photo-Themed Holiday Gifts | Vancouver Child Photographer
  • sunday showcase

    Sometimes it’s so hard to figure out what to give as gifts. But trust me, family (especially grandparents) will always appreciate a photo-themed gift. Especially if it’s something useful. Here are some top items to consider this year.

    Phone cases – we all need one! And wouldn’t it be fun for grandma to show off the grandkids right on her phone cover? The days of the wallet photos are long gone. And the phone cases are so easy to create and change-up whenever the mood strikes (or a fantastic new photo is available).

    Photo collages and gallery walls are always a great feature for the home. But why not get a little more creative with it and gift a heart-felt photo collage. This particular one from Minted lets you personalize it with 30 different photos.

    For the workout warriors on your list, a water bottle is a definite necessity. Wouldn’t your kids smiling faces be a great motivation to finish that last mile?

    Everyone needs notebooks and notepads (at least those of us that refuse to give up the art of writing!). Personalized notebooks, journals and notepads are a great way to enhance any to-do list!

  • Wednesday’s Style – Holiday Photoshoot Styling | Vancouver Family Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    Everyone wants to create that perfect holiday card. First place to start – the wardrobe. Here are some suggestions perfect for the whole family.

    Go neutral and add pops of color. The holiday season is one filled with lots of fun and sparkle. Take some inspiration by incorporating bright pops of color and sparkle into your family’s outfits. Now don’t go overboard – you don’t want to look like discoballs! Some ways to incorporate this look is in a sparkly scarf or headband, bright-colored ties or belts, layering shirts or colorful shoes.

     

    Be natural and casual. Be yourselves and don’t try too hard. OK – of course you want to look uniform and polished, but you don’t want to appear too matchy-matchy. Let your outfits compliment one another, but don’t go out of your way to color-coordinate. This can look a bit overdone. For example, if mom is in a blue dress, dad can wear a maroon sweater while the kids are in green, purple or other jewel-toned shades. Complimentary outfits without looking too costume-y.

    If you want to add a fun touch or two, small, natural-looking Christmas trees, candy canes and other small and discreet props can look nice in holiday-themed photos. But again, less is more. Please don’t dress the family in Santa hats and Rudolph noses!

  • It’s Flashback Friday again. Whoop whoop. The weekend is here, and the holiday season is upon us. It makes me think about family vacations and getaways. Here’s a flashback to an amazing family photo session I did in Costa Rica while on vacation with my own family. Good times.
