A family love for food and bicycles came together to create Dominique Davis’ (@allthatisshe) edible scene, using ingredients she’d just bought for their weekend away. “By asking the kids to get involved with the styling of the shot, we all got creative together,” says Dominique. “This image is about our family and was made by our family, with love.” 🚲 #WHPmadewithlove

A toy taxi enters Manhattan’s fast lane in this #WHPmadewithlove submission from Ivan Wong (@ivvnwong). “I came up with a similar idea a year ago,” says Ivan. “I thought remaking this concept would reflect just how far I’ve come as a photographer. I wanted to put all my love into my second attempt.” 🚕

A cheerful burst of color was just the inspiration Alberta, Canada, blogger and photographer Barb Brookbank (@keepingwiththetimes) needed to create this beautiful wreath. “I stopped in a parking lot to gather my thoughts; before I knew it my eye was drawn to a few [tansies] peeking through a fence,” Barb writes in her caption. “September does that to me — everything becomes a little more precious.” #WHPmadewithlove

Acting runs in the family for 17-year-old Yara Shahidi (@yarashahidi). “My mom is a commercial actress, so for most of my childhood I worked on commercials with her,” says Yara. “It was always like a playdate with one of my favorite people, so it never felt like work. That’s how I fell in love with acting.”
Fast-forward to today, and the young star of “Black-ish” is still honing her performance chops as she makes her second appearance at the Emmy Awards. “It’s a busy time on the carpet, but that’s overshadowed by seeing friends!” says Yara. “I’m excited to celebrate our TV community. We put in a lot of hours and dedicate a lot of time to create programming, so it’s fun to sit with everyone and just take a moment to smile.”
Tune into our Instagram story to hang with Yara at the #Emmys. ✨

When “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” host Stephen Colbert (@colbertlateshow) was younger, comedy was his great love. “I had comedy albums that I would play over and over, like George Carlin’s ‘Class Clown’ and Steve Martin’s ‘A Wild and Crazy Guy,’” says Stephen. “I heard those guys and I was hooked. I wanted to be a part of it.” Long before he went into comedy professionally, Stephen had a loyal audience of one: his mother. “She was a great guide for my artistic interests and was the ultimate person to make laugh,” he says.
Stephen’s transition to “The Late Show” two years ago also changed his comedic path. “I’ve allowed myself to become sort of a pure performer now,” he says. “Coming out of ‘The Colbert Report,’ I wanted to go out there and do jokes for people. I wanted to be interested in my guests. That’s the only way I could reveal myself, to be myself for the audience.”
Tune in to the #Emmys this evening to see Stephen host the event — and share a joke or two.

The lack of a real-life vehicle didn’t get in the way of artist Helga Stentzel (@made_by_helga) on her family vacation in Greece for this #BoomerangOfTheWeek. “My boys wanted to use their swim rings for wheels, and at some point Misha, my elder son, grabbed the third ring and started spinning it as if it were a steering wheel,” she says. “They wanted their car to have a roof, so I quickly drew it in ... in stories! It is truly fascinating how stickers and other tools enable you to blend reality and fantasy. So many possibilities and so much fun!” 🚗

Alone in the Swiss mountains, German filmmaker Frederik Schindler (@frederikschindler) waited for moody weather to settle in before heading out with his tripod and camera. “It was an exciting feeling to be there alone at this huge lake, witnessing the spectacle of nature,” he says. 🌲 #TheWeekOnInstagram

Working on a series of long-exposure photographs using medium-format film, this scene caught photography teacher Josh Sinn’s eye as he drove through the Baltimore suburbs. “The house and car were located on a somewhat busy street, so I had to wait for traffic to slow down in order to get the shot without any headlights or brake lights whizzing past,” he says. “The image suggests it was quieter than it really was.” 🏠 #TheWeekOnInstagram
