You know when your soul needs a change – a real change? Maria found it when she moved from her native Australia to the commanding city of Rome. She documents her experiences in her adopted city in her blog, HeartRome, where travellers and dreamers alike can get a taste of living in la bella Italia. When her mother’s birthday rolled around, Maria and her siblings surprised her with the most lovely of gifts: a visit to see her daughter in this special city.

“For my mum’s 60th birthday, my siblings and I surprised her with a trip to Rome to visit me. I have been wanting to work with Flytographer for a while now, so a shoot in Rome while mum was in town seemed the perfect opportunity! Roberta captured the fun we had during this time together and the photos are simply stunning. These are special moments that have been captured and are now memories for us to keep forever. And an amazing souvenir for mum to take home from her trip to Roma!  I can’t stop talking about Flytographer – I won’t travel without them in future!– Maria

“Roberta our photographer was just wonderful. She made us feel immediately at ease and the photos capture beautiful moments between my mum and me. We will cherish them forever. I can’t wait to do another shoot on my next travels!” – Maria
