Shooting the breeze: family photo tips by JJ

Janet {JJ} originally hails from Germany and works in Grand Cayman as professional photographer at Better Angle Photography and specialises in Portrait and Wedding Photography. She has a passion for sharing her love for photography with others and believes that everyone can take a great photo.

Sixteen Chickens on a Trampoline 

Now a grandmother, Faye Lippitt moved to Cayman in 2011 with her husband Dr Greg Lippitt who is a chiropractor at West Shore Centre. They arrived from Alberta, Canada where they raised their six children.  Faye says that chaos reigned when the six came – sometimes two by two – in a span of just eight years. To find order in that chaos, she started writing about the crazy things the kids did.  Written over a period of 15 years, her articles are entertaining and funny. She hopes they will encourage others to share their own stories.

Cayman

New Resident – a comprehensive and accurate source of information for living and working in the Cayman Islands.  It includes excellent sections on having a baby, buying and running a home and education.  The magazine comes out once a year, but the website is updated daily.  The publishers also produce Good Taste magazine and Explore Cayman.

Ecay – the best place to buy and sell second-hand items in Cayman, with a great section for Kids clothes, toys and equipment.

Caymanmoms – thoughtfully curated stories and articles from around the web that invites you to share your idea and thoughts with other mums in Cayman.

Parenting

Babycentre – in Caymum’s opinion, the best resource for help and information from pregnancy to pre-school.  For you moms from North America, there is also a US version babycenter.com.

Babble – a collection of blogs written by fellow parents, sharing the ups and downs – and the funniest moments – of raising kids.

Mumsnet – the inspiration for Caymum, it is a gathering place for mums in the UK to ask each other questions and get advice from other parents.  It has over 8 million visitors a month and has become an influential voice in the media and in politics. Reassuring to find other mums facing the same issues as you and useful to see how they were resolved.

Lifestyle

Have Family Will Travel – a family travel blog by the awesome Four Seasons hotel group gives kid-related destination guides and insider tips from the hotels’ concierges.  Useful even if a stay at a Four Seasons is only a daydream!

The Trunki Files – great travel ideas for families written by parents.  The site is British so many of the travel stories are in and around Europe.

Cooking Them Healthy – tried and tested recipes that kids love and are healthy for them too.  Handy sections also include gluten-free and dairy-free recipes, plus lots of tips on how to sneak in extra veg and how to feed the whole family.
