Flytographer Photo Shoot Review at Eiffel Tower in Paris



Aloha! I’m so glad that you are here! I am Sierra Schmidt, creator of Free to Travel Mama. I love planning trips almost as much as taking them, and so this site allows us to share our experiences with you and help you plan your own travel adventures. We strive to provide detailed travel itineraries as well as plenty of photos for visual inspiration.

I live in beautiful Texas Hill Country with my handsome husband & three adorable, crazy kiddos. I am passionate about my family, my faith, and traveling the world with my camera, of course! I also love the beach, reading a good book, and strawberries & dark chocolate.

Most Recent Adventures:

Lake Tahoe, California
Sonoma County, California
Southwest Road trip through Sedona, Santa Fe, + Central Texas

Upcoming Adventures:

Hyatt Lost Pines Resort in Austin

Free to Travel Mama’s main goal is to encourage everyday families like us to seek adventure and make space in their daily lives to explore the world around them. We strive to:

    • INSPIRE: We have met too many parents who think that traveling with their children is out of reach. We strive to inspire them to plan their own adventures with our images and experiences.
    • SIMPLIFY: We take the guesswork out of trip planning by providing families with detailed travel information to make their vacation preparation simple + enjoyable for everyone – especially with kids
    • GROW: Partner with businesses who are providing products + services that our readers are looking for and help bring them organic exposure.

For travel questions, business inquiries, or just to say hello, feel free to reach me directly at sierra@freetotravelmama.com.

I hope to get the opportunity to chat with you soon. Thanks for stopping by!
