Mayan Riviera, Mexico in HDR using an iPhone 5

Cathy and I recently traveled with friends to the small fishing village of Akumal, Mexico on the Mayan Riviera for a vacation. This year is our 10-year wedding anniversary and we wanted to get away before the start of our busy season. The Mayan Riviera sits on the Caribbean. Sunrises in the morning, white sand beaches and tropical weather make it a truly magical destination. I photographed our trip using my new iPhone 5 and the Pro HDR application. The new iPhone has an excellent camera, one that produces beautiful image files that can be printed quite large. Funny story: Eating dinner at the Al Cielo restaurant I photographed, informally, a wedding happening right in front of the restaurant! Not sure if I could pull that off here:) We had so much fun that we decided next year we're taking the kids. Big thanks to our friends Teri and Jeff who were married here six years ago and invited us to travel with them. Find our how they pulled off their own DIY beach wedding on the Mayan Riviera here.  — Seanmexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-destination-wedding-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-destination-wedding-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-zamas-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-tulum-vacation-pictures-iphoneal-cielo-restaurant-mayan-rivieramexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-bahia-principe-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-bahia-principe-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphonemexico-akumal-vacation-pictures-iphone

Photograph Your Next Family Vacation With Your iPhone

family-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahoWe used our iPhones to photograph our family vacation in Sun Valley, Idaho and I can't say enough good things about this handy little camera. The images are excellent! We will use them with iPhoto to design and print a memory book of our trip. You know the old saying, "The best camera you have is the one you have with you?" Well, that's true. Next time you're on a family vacation, use your phone to capture the little observations and the small moments. It's great fun to travel with and you don't need to worry about a larger camera being damaged or stolen. We even brought it skiing with us to Dollar Mountain at the Sun Valley Resort and fly fishing on the Big Wood River. Idaho, btw, is a beautiful place and spending it with family made our trip even more memorable:) — Seanfamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idahofamily-vacation-pictures-sun-valley-idaho

A Great Excuse To Photograph Your Kids

Snow days are a great excuse to photograph your kids. We recently had a snow day and it was great opportunity for picture taking. Here are some photographs of Abby, 7, Harper, 5, and Jacob, 3. We went sledding together and I photographed Harper and Abby walking through a hall of trees on North Nevada Ave. — Sean
