On Saturday Addie and I went straight from Sarasota, Florida to Miami, Florida where we got on a boat.

Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool. #SponsoredByCarnival

A cruise ship to be more specific.

The super enormous Carnival Breeze to be incredibly specific.

We’re currently a few hundred miles away from St. Thomas, USVI and this post has already cost $6.50 in satellite Internet.

What am I doing on a boat? Well this super hip ad agency had the idea to bring 10 people and their smartphones on the boat to track moments as they happen on the ship.

We’ve all seen stock photography, the happy family having SO! MUCH! FUN! This on the other hand is real, these photos are our real families doing real things on a real cruise. No models, no art directors, no hair and makeup, no stylists.

The lady on the right had a free sinus wash courtesy of a water slide. #SponsoredByCarnival

My mom’s here too. (Say hi mom!) The moment I walked into our stateroom she said “You’re pretty small potatoes compared to everyone else here.”

Thanks mom.

If we’re going by followers I am 10 of 10 by a long shot. I am shooting with some wicked talented people, but I feel as though I’m holding my own. (I’m also the only Android.)

Comparison is the thief of joy, and right now I don’t want any of this joy thieved.

Captain of her own world. #SponsoredByCarnival

I’m currently sitting in a bar, the karaoke has started and people are becoming a lot more fun with their fruity beverages as I fade into tired oblivion.

There was a lot of water sliding done today.

ALL. DAY. LONG. #SponsoredByCarnival

If you’re interested, you can follow most of my photos right here, or you can see my favorites on my personal account.


A special thanks to Carnival for having us on their ship. Travel expenses have been covered for my family and me, all opinions are my own.


  1. What a great time – it makes my heart happy to think of Addie having this magical childhood.

  2. I think your potatoes are just the right size. You’re badass. Don’t you forget it.

  3. Love the photo of Addie looking over the rail. And wanted to say: GO ANDROID! 🙂

  4. Wow, you and your mom look so much alike here!

  5. How fun! Your photos are AWESOME! Have a great time. I found your blog when I googled “#sponsoredbycarnival” to find out where all the beautiful beach photos were coming from via the tweets from all the bloggers I follow.
