Father’s Day approaches so we thought we’d shift the focus on to some of our favourite Vancouver Instadads and their great pics!
Vancouver Dads to Follow
James R.C. Smith of Jamesrcs
This dapper Brit in Vancouver is a snappy dresser, social media specialist, podcaster and super #dadlife blogger (think reviews, gift guides and op eds). He posts pics of him and his charming daughter exploring the city together.
Happy long weekend! Sometimes we really have to push ourselves to go out and explore the city (and beyond), even when life tries to get in the way. We’re starting off at Granville Island and then off to a lake and forest for an adventure. 🌲🌲🛶 What are you doing to celebrate #VictoriaDay? (Or the regular weekend for non-BC friends)

Blogger, vlogger, foodie, Instagramer, Dad and not in that order. Michael Kwan does it all. He’s a prolific online presence in the local parenting arena. Give him a follow!

Karm Sumal AKA Instakarm
This media mogul and co-founder of the Daily Hive may spend his days surrounded by finger-on-the-pulse millennials digging up the latest and greatest in Vancouver, but at home, he’s Dad. His vibrant urban-focussed Instagram feed has over 30K followers!
Shawn Miller of Younghipandmarried
The hip half to his, well, equally hip (and stylish) wife, photog Erica Miller, this dad to four is the head honcho of Young Hip and Married, where is also the officiant (like a Justice of the Peace). Check out these unique shots.

Mike Jackson of Grubwear
Not to be confused with THAT Michael Jackson, Mike’s retro hip and uber local duds can be found at his East Van Studiotique near Matchstick and Les Faux Bourgeois on Kingsway. This dad to two is known for his Ts and hats with snappy sayings (think Kingsway Special Hipster Unit Ts), East Van hats, leggings, and even bikinis.

She lives in East Vancouver with her husband and son where they enjoy exploring all that Vancouver has to offer from festivals and events to playgrounds and beaches to sushi and ice cream (although not together).
