Turkey Documentary Family Photoshoot

There is an Italian traveler family account on Instagram that I have been following for a while: The5worldexplorers. The family consists of mother Sarah, father Mass and their three children Cosimo, Emma and Luca. You can read more about their story in the article “Turkey Documentary Family Photoshoot” below the photos.

Sarah was born in America and later settled in Florence where she met her husband Massimiliano. After living in Arizona for a few years and having three children, they decided to release their spirit of adventure and started traveling around the world in 2018. They now rent out their houses and travel around the world, sometimes by caravan and sometimes by staying somewhere.

Sarah is a great photographer which I think also contributed to our instant connection. Mass is a physiothrapist who focuses on healing and is a very deep person. While their children continue their education online, they gain a lot of experience traveling.

Meeting in Turkey

When I was in Cairo for a shoot, I learned that they were in Turkey. I immediately sent a message saying that we could meet around Izmir. They matched their schedules and stayed in a camp in Balcova. One afternoon I took my son, who is the same age as Luca, and my wife to visit their caravan. Everyone hit it off instantly and they had a lot of stories to tell. We didn’t realize how time passed and we agreed to meet again.

The next day they came to visit us, this time with their wonderful family campervan. We spent a full day together. The children played at home and in the garden and we spent a wonderful summer evening in the garden, enjoying dinner and chating. During these two days I took photos of the family from time to time without disturbing their natural state. I hope we’ll see each other again someday.
