There is truly nothing like New York City at Christmas. Nothing will EVER beat the magic it holds. Being Jersey kids, both Jeff and I grew up going in to the city every year to see the tree, the windows, the lights. The whole city transforms and it makes me want to move back to the East Coast immediately.
For the first time this year, we got to bring Arlo in on our trip home so he could experience it too. And re-living your childhood memories through your child’s eyes is pretty darn amazing.
We’ve partnered with Canon this year, so we brought along our Canon EOS Rebel t7i to capture a few of these firsts! It’s the perfect travel and family camera. Lightweight, easy to use and perfect for capturing quick (and colorful!) moments. If you’re still on the hunt for a great camera to gift this holiday season, this is the one. Here’s a few snaps from our trip.
One of our favorite features of the camera is the 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor which is fancy talk for capturing REALLY amazing color and vibrancy. Go figure, that’s something we’d like. 😉 The quality it produces overall is fantastic too, it gets alll the little details and the perfect moments! Because you never want to miss one on a big “first” trip like this.
Basically it’s a no-brainer for us to grab this camera when we’re headed out on a family trip since it’s just so easy to travel with. Especially when wearing alllll that winter gear we aren’t used to. Ha!
Even found a few spots where we “blended” in with the NYC decor. Because what’s that again… LOVE A THEME!
