How to live in the magic at Disney World {Tampa Family Photographer}

As a photographer, vacations have an added stress, how do I document it (cause that's what I do) and enjoy it? I am sure this isn't a dilemma that is special to us photographers. Moms (and Dads too) worry about bringing the "good" camera, photographing those fun special moments and actually living those moments too, not to mention actually being in the photograph.

This family did exactly that, they lived in every single moment from the top of the roller coaster to flying through the valley. We started with breakfast with The Beast, zoomed through with fast passes to see Peter Pan and Seven Dwarves, made sure we flew with Dumbo and rode through the Hundred Acre Woods. We had water breaks, pee breaks, snack breaks. Danced with the Parade down main street and had dinner with a Princess or two. After riding the magic carpet and multiple rides around Big Thunder Mountain we headed off to wait for the ultimate fireworks show. I know at this point everyone is tired, they are thinking do we really have to stay in this cramped spot for over an hour for fireworks, but then the look on Dad's face (and the kids) tells me all the wait was totally worth it.

Yes at some point in the day there are tears, there is mom giving "the look" and Dad quietly pulling a kid to the side to say dude, chill out. There are lots of hugs, dramatic whining of "pick me up" and silly faces to go around. These are all emotions that having a photographer to capture is just freaking awesome, hands down. 

I know you guys have heard this speech before, but it's Disney, go all in, do it right, be in the magic, not watching it from behind a lens. Be in the pictures, be present, just be. Stop trying to do it all and delegate some things. Use the concierge to book your dinner reservations and fast passes, ask for directions and hire a photographer. You are on vacation, just be, ride the rides with your hands in the air and let me worry about photographing all those great first moments. 

So I could go on and on about how awesome this is (and really I should just to get my SEO word count up), but just watch and think to yourself, how awesome would it be to just live in the moment and not have to feel like I have to photograph it
