Family Photo Tips For A Winter Wonderland Session

Family photos. I LOVE family photos. It’s no real secret that I love photos in general, but there is something really special to me about documenting these quickly changing years. But a successful family photo shoot doesn’t just happen (yes one great photo or moment, can candidly happen – but a polished family session generally doesn’t).

2017 Top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers

It has been a whirlwind of disbelief and happy dances these last few weeks. I could barely believe when I got the email (and the honour) that I had been selected as one of Vancouver’s 2017 Top Mom Bloggers!!!!

I can’t lie, it’s been hard work to create and begin writing my own blog. And all the research, countless googling and youtube videos that begin with ‘how do you…’ searches. But it feels amazing when you get positive feedback for all the hard work and time you have put in.

I write this blog because I have a passion for writing and sharing my love of baking, decorating and parenting with others. I feel this journey has just begun and that there is so much more I want to share and write about. Yet, I want to take this moment to thank you all for your support. For reading my musings and tutorials along the way and showing me some love! So if you feel so inclined, check out some of the other awesome bloggers nominated and maybe throw a vote our way.


Update: The voting period has now ended.
