A huge thank you to Rosanne of Zin Frames for being a vendor in the photo contest! I have started my Zin Frame collection and LOVE them! This photograph shows them in use in my daughters room. Just love the range of colours they offer!
Tell us a little about yourself and your business.
I’m Rosanne and run Zin Frames together with my husband Jan. We moved to Canada from the Netherlands about four years ago, and we absolutely love living here!
We started our photography business soon after arriving in BC and we still photograph weddings together. After we had our daughter 2 years ago I started specializing in maternity & newborn photography. I loved the frames I saw across the border and wanted to offer them to our clients, however, with the duties, fees and shipping it was simply too expensive to do that. That’s when we started on this journey and decided that we would put our skills to work to create Zin Frames, and offer these gorgeous shabby chic frames to the Canadian market. Little did we know that a large part of our client base is also in the US, as well as overseas!
What do you love the most about your job?
I love looking at the new account applications that come in daily and getting lost on the websites of all the talented photographers that we work with. Most of all, I love getting to know these lovely photographers that we are proud to call our clients!
How do you come up with inspirations for new ideas?
Actually, we get most new ideas from our clients. We love hearing what other products they’d like to see and we encourage them to share these ideas with us!
How do you balance your business and family life?
That’s a tough one and it’s something I struggle with sometimes. Between taking care of our almost 2.5 year old, running our photography business as well as Zin Frames, there isn’t a whole lot of time left for anything else. The hubby is creating frames more than full-time, so he’s got his hands full too.
We are blessed that our daughter loves going to daycare a few days a week. She’s a little social bug and loves playing with her friends all day. Without daycare I don’t know how we would survive 🙂
