Before becoming a mum myself, I could see the appeal but I have to admit - I struggled in media interviews answering exactly 'why' holiday photos were so important for mothers.
A recent journalist described the current trend of 'booking a photoshoot on holidays' as an ego-centric purchase and I just had to laugh.
Lets set the record straight - the growing trend of spending time with a professional and local photographer is not about claiming fame to the best profile pic. We know this, our clients tell us every bloody day :) It's the opposite of ego actually, it's about capturing those once in a lifetime moments that will only happen once.
Mothers in particular, really value photos with our children and partners on holidays. In today's busy lives, it's not often we get the chance to capture moments altogether in an incredible part of the world, so it makes sense.
So if that certain journalist (you know who you are!) happens to stumble across this little blog, lets get one thing straight - booking a destination photographer whether it be with Travelshoot or another company, is all about genuine and honest travel memories.
Whether it be with your partner, a girls getaway, or a family holiday, the experience of having photos taken is not about ego, it's about documenting those special moments in time. Moments we all only get once.
