10 Favourite Photo Walls | Chilliwack To Abbotsford

I seriously loveee taking photos. One of the best memorable things ever when working with photographers! On top of that I always love mixing things up for our photos and being creative. Finding the beauty in things you wouldn’t normally! Walls around our area have a lot of creative and artistic beauty to them. Like I said, I love to find the beauty in things you wouldn’t normally. Sometimes just adding a pop of colour or print can make a whirl of difference when it comes to your photos, whether it be just a family session or for the gram. Either way its a really fun way to make your photo pop and give it a little life!

I have been putting together a collection of photos with walls in the Chilliwack & Abbotsford area that I love to visit and drive by just to see. I mean this isn’t every wall in the area there are tons more to visit to! These ones are ones that I frequently like to visit and get asked about a lot. So these are directions on where each wall is located. And hoping you visit them as well, take your photos and be sure to share them with me. I would love to see them!

Trust me theres no trespassing with any of these, but I will warn you if not there at the right time of day it can get pretty busy. So I would probably say visit first thing in the morning or later in the evening before sun goes down! Learn from my mistake!! hahaha Bonus while your in the area of any of these walls, there are lots of coffee shops and donuts to pick up along the way to make it even more fun!

The scavenger hunt of photo walls… have fun!

Sunflowers Sunflowers Everywhere!

Just in case you’ve been debating whether or not to go visit the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival. I suggest you do so before they close! I debated it myself and had reservations about going, I mean how amazing could it really be. I was SO wrong in doubting it because it was WAY more incredible then I ever thought possible. The rows and the heights. The colours and the beauty. Amazing. I loved every minute of it. It covers such a big space and there you will find lots for the kids to do.

The Bouquet Farm

While browsing through my best friend Instagram, I stumbled upon a cute little hidden gem I’ve never heard about before The Bouquet Farm . It had all kinds of style and charm and best part it was local. I love being able to discover new places locally and believe or not we have SO many of them. The other best part of local is the people that stand behind these quaint little places. The ones that create them and bring all the beauty. They put a lot of work and love and it’s always my way of showing appreciation by visiting and hearing their stories.

Things To Know Before You Take Your Kids Blueberry Picking!

Things To Know Before You Take Your Kids Blueberry Picking!

Sure it may seem easy to just go and grab a box of blueberries from the store and call it a day. But with this gorgeous Summer weather we need to take advantage of just soaking in the sun and teaching our kids the beautiful ways of providing and working for what we get! I’m not talking about child slave labour, I’m just saying that it shows kids so much more pleasure when they pick what they eat!
