Capturing the priceless moments, including Mom!


What a busy celebrating week we had in my house, I feel like Thanksgiving was forever ago. We officially began the Christmas season on Black Friday with one of my favorite traditions, cutting down a Christmas tree. As a kid we use to do it, I have some great memories from that experience. We finished Black Friday with another favorite tradition of seeing Santa at the Boars Head in Charlottesville. It was a very full day with great times, friends and traditions.

Speaking of traditions…what is your Christmas card tradition? I imagine this weekend the first set of Holiday cards are going to start rolling into my mailbox. I love getting them, real legit mail! When I was growing up my mom wrote a newsletter with all the yearly updates, there was no social media to keep us all connected. Now we send beautiful cards with pictures from vacations, professional pictures or one of everyone smiling. I personally enjoy sending pictures of where we have been over the past year. I found a way to make it easier…for next year that is. Did you know you can easily get professional vacation pictures with this amazing company called Flytography. It’s kind of a mom’s dream come true. If you’re like me and take all the family vacation pictures you can now be pictured while on vacation. I have not yet used this service but my travel agent friends are raving about this service.

Here is a low down on this awesome idea to capture family memories. Plans start at $250 and go up based on the number of locations, time allotted and picture captured. Flytography will match you with a local photographer in your destination and help you find the perfect location. The shoots are short, fun and candid in style. The photographers act as a local friend, strolling around and sharing insider tips and discreetly snapping beautiful memories that capture your vacation story forever. They recommend booking at least 4 weeks in advance to get the date you want. They can book last minute but not always guaranteed. Flytography is well staffed in 200+ cities around the world, don’t let your next vacation go by without professional photography.

Are you reading this and thinking…wow this is amazing! Well you can buy a gift card for a loved one this holiday season. No, I am not a sales person for Flytography I am simply a mom who loves to take pictures and capture memories of all of us and not always squeezed into a selfie. I think it's a brilliant business idea. As a travel professional I am able to book your next session at a discounted rate. If you are interested in a Flytography session book here or contact me. It's the perfect way to photograph your next family vacation, babymoon, proposal or reunion.

Flytographer believes memories are the best souvenirs, and connecting with a local is part of the vacation magic. This was fun for me to look at photographs from Flytographer and my own pictures, do you see who is missing? Don’t leave mom out of your next vacation!
