Jason and I may not know where we see ourselves living long term, but one thing that we absolutely agree on is that we want to continue to traveling as often as possible with our children. With so many destinations on our bucket lists, we welcome what the future has in store for us. Whether it’s a weekend trip, or a trip across country, even the kids look forward to our travel excursions, because we are all guaranteed to be together without any (or hopefully minimal) interruption. One thing is unanimous..we all love the warm weather, the salt ocean air, and the beach. We are all the most content when at the beach. Jason and I always joke that our kids have more stamps on their passports, than we did by our twenties.
When we are on vacation, I am typically behind the camera. I want to capture these memories in the making, so we can look back at that special time. As much love photography and experimenting with different light, I mostly cherish our full family photos, but those seem to be scarce . It’s really hard to ask a stranger at times to snap a photo while the kids are running in different directions, and if we can nail them down, I’m usually not thrilled at the way they captured the photo.
Prior to leaving for California, I discovered Flytographer, a company who has local photographers all around the world ready to snap your special moment. I immediately hired them as I knew we would want this trip documented the right way. Our local photographer met us at our hotel in Santa Monica, for about a half hour, she snapped shots of us playing, strolling together on the beach, and really just being ourselves. As few photos were staged, my favorites are the candid ones. These photos have become the best souvenir we were able to take home.
Booking with Flytographer was super easy! We simply browsed through their photographer galleries to find the photographer we liked. There is even an option where you check out their most popular local backdrops for cities like New York, Paris, Rome, London or Los Angeles. Book your date and a Shoot Concierge will confirm ideal times and availability. Then, you will get a “Shoot Scoop” email with all the details. It’s really simple, and everything is processed online.
We have a few trips planned over the next couple of months, and while away, we plan to hire Flytographer’s local photographers. We will be guaranteed to get great family photo’s everywhere we go. Listening to my children talk about their travel experiences is something for which I am extremely grateful, and now having them look back at these professional family photos, they will surely be cherished for years to come.
