How to tell me you don't know about photography, without telling me you don't know photography.
If you need a point & shoot camera, buy a point & shoot camera.

Need some help and I'd appreciate your experience, suggestions and recommendations for a future proof camera. I'm diving full force into photography (photoshoots) and video making (vlogs/video making for YouTube. Can anyone point me a camera that does both of these without spending tens of thousand? Thank you in advance!

Depends on how much you want to spend. I am a Canon guy and got the latest Canon R6 Mark ii which got 40 FPS and excellent AI to detect pets, horses, planes, trains and what not. Biggest advantage with Canon RF is most of their refurbished lenses are on sale at Canon website. For example RF50 mm is 79 bucks. Even 35, 85, 100-400 are on a throw away prices.

This isn't that great for vlogging because of the slow readout of the sensor. You'd have to switch to APS-C for vlogging.
If you watch a review on YouTube and pay attention to the jiggly background when they walk/vlog with it, you'll see what I mean. For vlogging, the GH5 is still the best stabilization IMHO.

Other than that, this is a nice camera.

A7Riv is not the best camera for video, it is more of the landscape and static photo shooter for super fine details to make large prints. Because of the high pixel count, video or action shot will have rolling effects.

On the other hand, A7Siii is a great video shooter but 12MP is lacking for photos.

If you want a single camera that does great job for both, it is likely the A7M4. For Canon, it would be R6M2.

Actually, when you have these expensive camera, plus one of those large aperture lens.... you don't need flash. Cool
