Travel Story

"Capturing Memories in the City: A Thanksgiving Photo Journey" In the crisp November air, our family embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime Thanksgiving adventure to the heart of the Big Apple. With excitement buzzing in the air, we set out to make this Thanksgiving truly unforgettable. Central Park, a sprawling oasis amidst the city's skyscrapers, became the backdrop for a remarkable photoshoot that would capture the essence of our family bond against the stunning fall foliage. As we wandered through the park, with Kari's camera clicking away, we found hidden nooks, picturesque bridges, and serene lakes that provided the perfect canvas for our family portraits. The photoshoot not only became a documentation of our physical journey through Central Park but also a representation of the emotional journey they were on together. Our family shared stories, whispered secrets, and embraced one another under the golden hues of autumn leaves. Each snapshot became a timeless treasure, freezing moments of love, togetherness, and the beauty of family in the heart of one of the world's most vibrant cities. As the sun dipped below the skyscrapers, casting a warm glow on the city, we realized that our Thanksgiving journey was not just about the iconic landmarks or the bustling streets; it was about the shared moments, the laughter, the photographs that would forever freeze those instants in time. This photo album that resulted from our Thanksgiving trip to NYC became a cherished family heirloom. Each image told a story — a visual representation of gratitude, love, and the fulfillment of dreams. This Thanksgiving wasn't just a holiday; it was a tapestry woven with the threads of family ties, the vibrant hues of Central Park, and the glittering magic of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. In the years to come, whenever we flipped through the pages of this photoshoot, we would be transported back to a Thanksgiving in the city where their hearts found a new rhythm, and our family bond became a masterpiece captured in photographs.

Travel Tips

We highly recommend doing the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and getting tickets to it way in advance. There are restaurants and places that offer brunch and a secluded place for you to watch the parade without being squeezed with the crowds.
