About Us

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. This all began as a fun and creative outlet for my travel-loving self and family. I love planning trips almost as much as taking them, and so Free to Travel Mama allows me to share our experiences as well as keep me busy in between our travels!

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.

I am also the owner of Sierra Virtual Solutions where I operate as a freelance Pinterest Manager and Virtual Assistant. I know that many of you have put such an incredible amount of time into your own small business – but it just isn’t possible for you to do EVERYTHING – there just isn’t enough time! That’s where I come in. I have spent over a decade refining my skills as a proofreader, marketer, and organizational & administrative support expert. I would be honored to help you handle a few of your everyday tasks to help you grow and take your business to the next level.

I live in beautiful Northern California 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.

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!
