Did you know I travel with my clients to destinations all around the world to document their family vacations? It is an amazing gig and one of the favorite parts of my job. Just in case you are needing some inspiration for your next trip, I’m including my Top 5 Travel Locations for a Photo Session here!
Some of your family’s best memories are going to happen on vacation and those deserve to be captured. Travel is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, so be sure to include photos of the trip! Yes, you’ll have the iPhone shots that stay on your phone forever. But doesn’t your family deserve more? Hiring a professional photographer (Hi, that’s Me!) can be an amazing experience!
Whether you are traveling somewhere brand new and you want to capture the excitement of a new adventure or you have a special place you travel to every single year with your family, we will create amazing images that will be treasured for a lifetime.
Travel sessions can be in any destination with locations both indoors or outdoors. They can be a casually posed lifestyle session or documentary style to capture your favorite places around the town. Do you always rent surfboards or love to minigolf? Do you have a favorite burger bar or ice cream shop that you ride bikes to every year? Let’s capture those memories.
These are my Top 5 Travel Locations for a Photo Session and I would LOVE to tag along with any of you! Each of these places offers amazing family adventures and I could even share a few special secrets for some of them.
Top 5 Travel Locations for a Photo Session
- The Rocky Mountains | Colorado
Being in Texas, we jump at any chance we get to escape to the cool air of Colorado. There is something so magical about the Rocky Mountains and it provides two totally different vacations in the summer and winter. Simply put, it is amazing.
- Hilton Head Island | South Carolina
The entire island is covered in bike trails making it safe for kids to explore from top to bottom. So many options for golf, tennis, biking, beach, and restaurants. Best daily itinerary includes the beach in the morning and a shaded pool in the afternoon! Check out the house we always stay in near Folly Field Beach!
- Traverse City | Michigan
If you have never been to Northern Michigan, add it to your list right now! Locals call it “Up North” and everyone in the mid-west lives for these long summer days at the lake. Traverse City has beautiful weather (in the summer), lake access, and amazing wineries! So many amazing options for vacation family photos with beaches, wineries, and amazing views from the peninsula.
- Kauai | Hawaii
Okay, I’m starting to get a little further out there on this list. If you have not been to Kauai yet, please put it on your bucket list! I have traveled to a lot of places in the world and few compare to the beauty you will find here. Being one of the smaller islands in Hawaii, you’ll be able to find a secluded paradise. The views and nature are truly breathtaking. Such an amazing location for a photo session.
- Tuscany | Italy
This is my all-time favorite place in the entire world. I’m including it on this list in the hopes that ANYONE will plan a trip here and give me the excuse to buy a plane ticket. The people, the culture, the food, the wine, the landscape. It is all absolute perfection. I can’t wait to go back.
