Since having children, my passion for photography has grown stronger through the years. I remember purchasing my first DSLR camera right after Siella came into the world, over seven years ago. It was a Canon T3i, and I remember playing around with all of the settings, and completely kicking myself for not purchasing one sooner seeing a huge difference in the quality of photos I was taking. Then once I mastered the T3i, I moved onto the 6D, and now I own a Mark IV. I don’t like to call myself a photographer because I am completely self taught, but I will say I absolutely love capturing all of our family moments from everyday lives to our escapes outside of the city.
The one thing that comes with taking tons of photos daily, is that they usually live on my SD cards, hard drives, or computers rarely getting printed. My children love looking through photo albums and seeing a photo framed bringing them straight back to that day and reminiscing over it. So when I discovered Canon’s new Ivy Mini Photo Printer, I had to have it. The pocket-friendly printer can travel with you, wherever you go. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket so you can take it just about anywhere…from birthdays, vacations, even nights out on the town you can print 2″ x 3″ photo with a peel-and-stick backing that adheres to your favorite surfaces. And with the ZINK Photo Paper, there’s no ink needed!
But my children’s absolute favorite part about the Canon Ivy Mini Photo Printer is customizing their photos! Through the Canon Mini Print App, you can edit your photos by adding frames, emojis, stickers, filters, text, tile print, collage print and more! The Ivy Mini Photo Printer works with your smartphone via Bluetooth and the Canon Mini Photo Printer App is available for free on the App Store and at Google Play.
As most of you know, Siella has taken a liking to fashion and sewing, and the Canon Ivy Mini Photo Printer is a great tool that she can use to complement her artistic interests in fashion! She can take pictures of her hand-made pieces and once they’re finished she can create a look-book of her best runway pieces. We just took our Ivy Mini Printer away on vacation with us, and it was the cutest watching the kids snapping selfies with their new friends, and being able to print the photos right there. They were able to customize and hand out their pint size photos to their friends allowing them bring their memories to life!
