When you go on holiday, you make a lot of memories. It’s inevitable and it’s one of the best reasons to go on vacation. One way of keeping those memories alive is through your photographs. There is a skill to taking fantastic photos and while often we can just point and shoot and still end up with great photos, sometimes we are looking for something a little more special.

In order to have wonderful memories of your family vacation, you’ll want photos with the whole family in them! This isn’t always as easy as it sounds. You can find a friendly local or fellow tourist and ask them to take your photo for you, or you could offer to take another family’s photo in the hopes that they return the favour, or you could try and capture a selfie of the whole family plus your destination. Even after all of that, you’ll only ever end up with a handful of photos with the whole family and you’re at the mercy of a stranger’s photography skills. Well, there is another way.

There is a company called Flytographer and they are the answer to getting everyone in the photos. They have hundreds of photographers in 175 destinations and you can schedule a photo shoot with them to capture some fantastic travel memories. You will have your own personal travel photographer who will capture posed and candid photos of your family while you are out exploring a wondrous new destination. There are different packages you can opt for and you can take a look at their destinations here.

Not only will you have fabulous memories and photos to prove it, you will also get to spend some time with a local who acts as an informal tour guide. This is the perfect compliment to your family holiday. This idea also makes for a great gift! Perhaps your parents are celebrating a wedding anniversary and you’re taking a multi-generational holiday to mark the occasion. Scheduling a photo session in your destination will make for a lovely gift and a wonderful way to make memories. Take a look at your photos from your last family holiday and you’ll get a sense of how important your holiday photos truly are.
