Candace Cameron Bure is all about bringing families together in her latest adventure.
The actress, who's known as DJ in the beloved classic sitcom Full House (where she later reprised her role in the Netflix revival Fuller House), teamed up with Canon PIXMA Printers at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. Not only did she throw out the first pitch, but she used this time to encourage families to capture memories through printed images.
With the world being overtaken by social media these days, it can be difficult to decide what pictures should be printed and what should be posted online, something that's even hard for Bure to decide.
The actress spoke to Enstarz about her time with Canon and how she stays motivated with all her latest gigs-- this includes the new season of Fuller House and The View, which fans won't want to miss.
Enstarz: What was it about the Little League World Series that made you want to team up with them?
Candace Cameron Bure: I love that Canon PIXMA and the Little League World Series are bringing families together and helping them preserve all of their greatest memories. I've grown up around cameras and love looking back at the old photos. I hope my kids and other families get to have similar experiences.
Printed images are such a rare thing nowadays with social media. Do you think it's harder to decide what kind of picture is worth posting on Facebook/Instagram versus printing out and keeping in a frame?
It can be hard to decide on both, but I try to choose social media pictures that I know my fans would enjoy seeing. I love to print my photos even more because it is easy, and the ones I choose to print and put in frames mean the most to me.
Social media has kind of taken over the world these days so how do you think people can keep their sentimental values by keeping pictures for memories versus posting it to gain likes and comments?
I love printing big and small milestones in my family's life as well as artful photos. I have a very large framed cork-board that I rotate with a collage of different photos, and I really do love the Canon PIXMA printer for that. While I love posting my photos to social media, there are some personal moments that I prefer to print!
Why do you think a baseball game can be one of the ideal places for families and friends can create memories?
My entire family and I love sports because they bring our family together. It is also a fun way to meet up with old friends and new people.
What can you tease about the Fuller House Thanksgiving episode?
The house is extremely full! Everybody's back.
Anything you can tease about the new season of The View?
It marks the 20th anniversary year of The View. I am incredibly excited to be a part of this shows legacy. This is definitely going to be a fun year that you don't want to miss.
You spend a lot of time traveling from New York to Los Angeles working on different projects and spending time with your family. How do you keep up the energy with everything balanced so well?
It's not always balanced perfectly, but it is a lot about juggling and shifting priorities. As far as my energy goes, I try to eat well, drink lots of water, take my vitamins, and get plenty of exercise. I also take time for myself in those moments and put my energy into prayer, time with God, and my bible study. That is what keeps me grounded in what is most important.
