Quebec City Photo Diary



{Wearing Oasap studded black blouse, DIY friendship bracelets, Jill Sander sunglasses, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag}

My folks and little sister are visiting from the west coast so I took them to Quebec City for the long weekend. Incidentally I discovered that my parents love to take pictures of tacky shit such as "Go take a picture with that pirate!" "Let me go take a picture of you with that huge plastic sunflower in front of the souvenir store!" and when I ask them to take my pictures they say things such as "what's so great about that blue wall?"... So it was a battle and a half to get these pictures taken. I hope you enjoyed them.

  11. Beautiful photos! My parents do the same thing. They tell me to take a photo in front of every tourist attraction and then when I ask them to take a photo of me, they roll their eyes. XD
