Why You Need a Family Vacation Photographer

March 28, 2023

Recently, I met the Lewis family on Sea Island to capture their entire beautiful family, and I loved seeing all the generations together! As a portrait photographer, I meet and photograph so many different families, and it’s taught me so much. If I can give you one truth, it’s this: Photos of your family are the ONLY investment you will ever make that will grow exponentially in value with time. On top of a yearly session, I always recommend families take advantage of their vacations to have family portraits taken. It’s always worth hiring a family vacation photographer, so you can make the most of your vacation! There are a few reasons why.

You’ll get family photos in a new beautiful location

You’re in a new place with tons of options for beautiful backdrops. Why not take advantage of the scenery and get some family photos?

It’s extra special if you’re able to include the grandparents. If your family trip is multigenerational or you’re visiting family, hiring a family vacation photographer can help you get gorgeous photos of all the generations together!

I have photographs of my family, including my father, and these images mean more to me now than they did just a couple of years ago. They are priceless and irreplaceable, and I will treasure them always. My boys will be so lucky to have them, as they’ll need to them to spark memories of their Gramps.

You’ll have the best souvenirs from your trip

Our biggest mission is to ensure our clients print their photos and have beautiful products worthy of their images. That’s why we offer high-quality heirloom products for you to have once the session is over. We don’t consider our job as your family vacation photographer done until you have the perfect heirloom products.

One of our favorite heirloom products is our albums. A few select portraits look divine on your walls (and we’ll help you put that wall together!), but your family albums tell the full story. This is where you can display all the little in-between moments so that nothing is forgotten. We’re so proud of the quality of our heirloom products, and during your personalized image Reveal, we’ll help you pick out and design something you love!

This means, when you invest in a portrait session and heirloom products, you’ll have the best souvenirs possible: gorgeous photos of your family enjoying their time together. You’ll want to keep these memories of your trip, and family sessions are the best way to do that.
