If you use the Cloudflare Redirect Rules to take care of the redirection:

You’ll make the DNS record for the apex (naked domain) be like this:

Type: AAAA
Name: @, or destinationanywherephotography.com
IPv6 address: 100::
Proxy status: :orange: Proxied:.

If you also want the www (sub-)domain to redirect, you’ll do the same there:

Type: AAAA
Name: www, or www.destinationanywherephotography.com
IPv6 address: 100::
Proxy status: :orange: Proxied:.
