Photographer and family man, Jacob Moon, creates memories while living the vanlife
Traveling the world, hiking, climbing, and adventuring with a toddler may not be for everyone, but for Jacob Moon it means not having to compromise between work and family. Exploring and living in his customized 2004 Dodge Sprinter van, Jacob is able to take photographs of remote locations without spending long periods of time away from his wife, Natasha or their daughter, Zoey. For this family of three, vanlife gives them the freedom to create new memories together and to spend their days enjoying the peace and tranquility of nature.
Jacob and Natasha are living proof that having young children does not mean staying in one place or limiting fun or adventurous activities. Zoey is growing up with nature all around her and the couple have noticed that she is calmer and happier when she is outside, learning all about the world. Jacob travels for work, which sometimes requires hiking through the terrain to find breathtaking views. Each day is filled with plenty of fresh air and sunlight without having to give up the basic comforts of home, time with his family, or fresh, healthy meals. For this trio, vanlife is the only life that lets them have everything they want and need. For Jacob, photography is not just his profession, but a way of capturing his memories forever. Years from now, he will be able to look back and see all of their adventures. For now, he prefers living in the moment, and enjoying every second.
