So you wanna go to Disney World and capture every single magical moment? Well babe, sorry to burst the bubble but it’s not gonna happen. At least, it shouldn’t happen! There’s a fine line between documenting the magic and missing out on the experience entirely. In this ep I’m sharing some advice about how to capture the moments while also making the memories.
It comes down to a few key things:
- setting expectations and communicating them with the other members in your group
- setting boundaries ahead of time for the kiddos
- prioritizing your platforms, because you simply cannot do it all! (for me, instagram stories took a backseat to capturing video)
- taking your shot when it counts and letting the other moments go undocumented
Plus, in this episode I’m also sharing some specifics about our day at Magic Kingdom, including a few things we learned along the way. Everything from stroller rentals to FastPasses and dinner reservations. Even if you don’t have a trip planned, I tried to make this an easy and entertaining listen, with a side of juicy parenting tips. GET READY.
PS, if you want to get your hands on the FREE Lightroom Mobile preset I use to edit all of my vacation photos that I took on my phone, make sure to put your name in over here! The preset will be coming your way shortly. xo
