About Us

We are Melissa, Keith, Max and Zoe.  Melissa is a photographer.  Keith is a finance guy. Max and Zoe are just busy being kids!  We are a family who loves to travel.

By the time Max was 4 years old, he had been to 13 countries.  Zoe went to 6 countries by the age of 18 months.  We were fortunate enough to live in the Middle East for three years and were able to travel to distant places from there, but since we have moved back to the United States, we have continued traveling.  Travel is what keeps me alive, even though it’s getting harder with my husband’s job.  But anything from a two week vacation to South America to a two day excursion to Vail is possible with young children if planned well.  My goal is to help other families such as ours plan and execute a fun vacation–both with or without kids!
