Happy memories make for happy kids. If you're still on the fence about taking a well-deserved vacation with your family, these snaps could finally push you to do so.
Russian-born filmmaker and photographer Alexander Tikhomirov visited the country and took some amazing photos with his wife Mary and their adorable baby named Cosmos. You read that right -- the couple brought their nine-month-old baby traveling, and they didn't look stressed at all.
The family of three visited the scenic beaches in Palawan and Cebu, and also dropped by Manila, the country’s bustling capital.
In his vlog, Alexander said his goal was to show that family life is anything but boring. We couldn't agree more. Take a look!
"Our time here was so beautiful. We got lots of beautiful pictures and videos, just have some rest, enjoy," Alexander said. "It's just amazing!" In fact, in another travel vlog about our country, he said they plan to go back to shoot some more.
You're probably thinking: "But they're professionals and they have all the expensive gear they need. There's no way my personal photos would look the same as theirs." That may be true, but while capturing happy moments in photos is important, it should not be the highlight of your trip, so says Alexander.
What are you waiting for? Plan that family vacation and build your kids' happiness anchors for life.
