National Dog Day + Fotostrap

Posted on August 26, 2015 by FOTO

For all you dog-lovers out there, today is National Dog Day!  

Here at Fotostrap, we love all pets...but we especially love our tail wagging four-legged friends!  Pictured above is a photo from our founder, Katie Norris, with her wedding day gear essentials and her big Golden Retriever Dutch.  

In honor of National Dog Day, we would like to point you to some tips on how you can celebrate this holiday. 

1.  Adopt a dog from your local shelter or pure breed rescue organization. 

2. Volunteer at your local shelter and offer to walk a dog or play with a dog, clean cages or anything else they need help with.

3.  Have a National Dog Day party and invite all your friends and their dogs!

4. Buy your dog a fun new dog toy...or two...or five.

5. Hire a professional photographer for a fun photo shoot with your dog.

6. Teach your dog a new trick.

7. Buy your dog a fashionable collar and leash.

8. Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of Puppy Mills and Gas Chambers in your state.

9. Give your dog some fun exercise by taking him or her to a dog park.

10.  Give your dog a good belly rub!

Back to School Round Up with Fotostrap

Posted on August 05, 2015 by FOTO

 

It's hard to believe that August is upon us, and soon school will be in full swing! As summer winds down, we wanted to pull together some great products and inspiring articles for those heading back to school--parents, kids and teachers, too.

First up, these Honey Bee Tees with a hand-drawn school bus are pretty cute! We love that they're designed by a mom with three kids in Alabama, who was unimpressed with the options available for kids.  With over 100 designs now, there's sure to be something for everyone!

Zulily shares how to rock your back to school shopping.  Just what you need to gear up for going to Target to shop that long list!

As a mom of six, Gabrielle Blair shared recently why they don't stress about choosing a school for their kids.  We loved this practical and thoughtful approach.

Here's a great round up of tons of first day of school printables to use in your photos as your family starts the year off!

We know that moms (and dads) work really hard!  Coffee + Crumbs is a website full of essays from parent perspectives about the good and the not-so-good. Need a little pick-me-up? Read a few essays. 

Proceeds from the purchase of each Fotostrap benefits Fotolanthropy, which uses photography & film to tell inspiring true stories of people who have overcome adversity.  Bayleigh Philips, a recent high school graduate, has managed to battle an inoperable brain tumor and countless treatments and surgeries, and she's now headed to college in the Fall!  We are so proud of all she has accomplished.  Read the latest Fotolanthropy update on Bayleigh here.

And last but not least, we can't leave Fotostrap out!  The camera strap that gives back would make a great accessory as you're snapping all those back to school photos, and it would also make a great teacher gift.  Shop over 20 different colors and patterns here.

Fotoguide: Summer Travel

Posted on July 16, 2015 by FOTO


Here at Fotostrap, we absolutely love to travel, and it's clear that our customers do, too!  We love seeing #fotospottings from all over the world!  Keep 'em coming!  As summer is now in full swing, we've rounded up some essentials we think would fit nicely with a day at the beach, pool or lake.  Anywhere near water is great with us! Take a look and tell us what your favorite pick is below.

 

Lo & Sons bags are amazing for travel.  They have so many wonderful options for weekend getaways, and we love that many of their bags offer separate compartments for shoes or toiletries down in the bottom of the bag.  So smart!

Of course you'll want to be capturing your vacation memories, and this James Fotostrap from our Lux Collection is sure to coordinate with everything you wear.  For pool side essentials, an InStyle Magazine is a must, along with sunnies (we love these Ray Ban Aviators), a hat to keep the sun off your face (similar one here at Gap), and great tunes!  

Tory Burch sandals, like the ones shown here from Pop of Style are great for your travel days (available here at Nordstrom), walking around town and meandering down to the beach.  You really can't go wrong with these sandals!

And lastly, do you need inspiration for where to travel?  You can't go wrong with our founder's favorite vacation spot, Seaside, Florida.  We love the peaceful little town that makes for the perfect getaway.

Did we miss something? We'd love to hear about your vacation essentials!
