GET IN THE PICTURE
Have you ever come home from a holiday to flick through the photos and realise you’re hardly in any of them? This is a dilemma that faces many Aussie mums who are often the family photographer, but so often left out of the happy snaps. Enter Travelshoot, a new company which links families up with local photographers in more than 80 cities worldwide, so you can get in front of the camera for once, and enjoy looking back at happy memories with your partner and children once the holiday is over. Each shoot is planned by local photographers to ensure images are shot in the city’s best locations. Co-founder Sarah Pearce was inspired to start Travelshoot after she and her husband spent an hour with a friend who was a local photographer during a trip to New York. “A father recently told us he loved the experience because he knew that they’d gotten awesome photos in the hour during the Travelshoot, so his wife was more relaxed for the rest of their holiday,” Sarah says. “Instead of obsessing over getting selfies for the whole trip or putting pressure on Mum to be the perfect photographer, they both knew that their Travelshoot photos would capture their holiday perfectly and preserve those memories forever.” For more information visit www.travelshoot.com.
