3 Ways To Document Your Family Vacation With PhotographsDocument Your Family Vacation With Photographs

1. Establishing Pictures

I’m a firm believer in storytelling. I love setting the scene of the places my family and I are visiting by taking some establishing shots to help tell the story of our trip. Whether it be the place we’re staying at, the beach, traditional food dishes, etc., I love snapping these images!

2. Candid Photos

Not all shots need to be posed or perfect. One of my favorite things to do is capture my little ones playing together on our family trips. It’s the little moments that I treasure the most and it’s really important to me that I document them whenever possible.

3. Same Pose, Different Place

You’ve likely seen those photos where adults recreate an image from their childhood. Using the same concept, you can make it a family tradition to recreate the same pose in every new place you visit.

Bonus tip: Create a Photo Book

Photo books are a great way of organizing all your favorite memories in one place. They are easy to make and you can enjoy flipping through the pages of a photo book with your loved ones anytime you want to go back to your favorite memories together. They are also a lot of fun to make!
