Believe it or not, a few years ago offering destination portrait photography wasn’t even on our radar. It is crazy to think a simple conversation completely changed our vision.
Several years ago, some of our former clients moved to California, had a baby, and said, “I wish you guys traveled, we would love to have you photograph our family.” The simplicity of that statement hit us like a ton of bricks. Why haven’t we been traveling for portrait sessions? We have clients, now friends, all over and we would love to be the ones capturing their lives.
Out of that conversation, the destination mini session concept was born. We have gone back to California every year for almost 4 years and each year we add more families and more stops. We have added Seattle, Minneapolis, and Montanna to our destination mini session list. We absolutely love offering these sessions to clients. Destination photography isn’t just for weddings, engagements, and elopements!
The Frank family has been with us for many years and they are such a joy to photograph. It is so cool to watch their family grow year after year! Each session we find a new location and explore a new area. We have photographed the Frank family at the Sutro Baths, Poplar Beach, and The Palace of Fine Arts San Francisco. I actually don’t remember how they even found out about our destination minis, but we are so glad they did.
Photography has brought such wonderful people into our lives, it’s one of the many reasons we love this job. And if you have a destination in mind for a portrait session, don’t be afraid to reach out! We are always up for a new adventure.
