Setting Aside Time to Connect on an Annual Mother-Son Adventure

We love the inspiration behind this mother-son duo's annual vacation - it's all about connection. And in these all too often hectic lives we lead, we are fully on board with making more time for connection. Read on for how they spent this year's time together in San Diego.

“I hired Flytographer to capture my little guy and me on our annual Mother's Day/birthday vacation. The inspiration for our annual vacation is connection. I am a single mother by choice to a wonderful 8-year-old boy. In the hectic day-to-day shuffle of life, carving out time with my son when I'm not also multi-tasking on the laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc. is a challenge. Our annual Mother's Day/son's birthday vacation is a time for us to get away and have fun!

“My favourite memory from our vacation was seeing my son's face when we arrived at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego! He was so excited to be on an aircraft carrier! And the funniest memory from our vacation has to be the Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios in Hollywood. My son begged me to get on the ride. I was hesitant because I did not want to get my hair wet! After watching the ride for a bit, I figured I might get away with a minor splash of water. Boy, was I wrong! As the car descended into the water, a huge spray SOAKED my hair. I laughed it off and we took pictures to send everyone of my ‘new’ hairdo!

“I could not have been happier with Flytographer’s service and our images! Booking was easy, our shoot concierge Liss answered all my questions, and our Flytographer Martina was fantastic! She recommended a location with great architecture and backdrops. When I saw the images, I was blown away!  She captured great moments in the most beautiful way!” - Soraya
