Family Lifestyle Session | Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

While slow traveling and worldschooling in Guatemala this spring, we’ve had the opportunity to meet some wonderful families. Meet W+L. Originally from Belgium, they’ve been traveling full-time for almost a year now around Central America with their three children. They are The Wondering Family. We met through Stone Soup, a month-long popup community for traveling families. I absolutely loved our families spending time together, playing on the lake and sharing delicious meals. They had a great spot right on the lake, so when they asked if I could do a lifestyle session with them we knew this was the spot to photograph them. Besides, this spot has been their life at Lake Atitlan, a place they’ve been twice in the past year.

So early one morning, I hopped on a boat to meet them at their beach and we spent the morning together, as much like their usual mornings – aside from me being there with my camera. They had breakfast on their pier, read books together, jumped in the lake, went standup paddleboarding, and for an extra special time, they had an Easter egg hunt in the lakeside rocks. It was a beautiful morning, with a beautiful family. I miss them already, but am so grateful to know we’ll travel together again. In just a few shorts months we’ll all be in Bali together for the next Stone Soup gathering.

Here are some of my favorites photographs of our lakeside morning together in Guatemala. Enjoy!
