How to Capture the Best Family Vacation Memories with Flytographer

Your special travel moments deserve more than selfies. Capture your best travel memories by booking family vacation photos with Flytographer.

If a photograph is worth a thousand words, then I wonder what it’s worth in terms of memories? As the recipient of childhood photo albums, and albums going back to my grandmother, I can tell you. They are priceless. Maintaining a visual record of our family history and its special moments is incredibly important to me. As we do a LOT of travelling, many of our special family moments are travel moments. But as the chief family photographer, I’m missing from many of those pictures. So how thrilling to have the opportunity to get in front of the camera for once, and enjoy a professional photo session, capturing the best family vacation memories with Flytographer.

Flytographer

Flytographer has a network of photographers in over 200 cities. You can book your photo shoot ahead of time, or as you’re travelling. It’s best to plan the day of your shoot a few days in advance, and that’s where the helpful Flytographer photo shoot concierge comes in. The shoot concierge puts you and your photographer in touch with each other, helps advise on some great location options (and how to get there if you’re in an unfamiliar city), good time of day to capture the best light, even where to get your hair done before the shoot to ensure extra gorgessity.

The best part of organizing a Flytographer photo shoot on vacay is that YOU will be in all of the photos. Looking fabulous in photos taken by a professional local Flytographer. No awkward selfies with photobombing strangers or bad angles. These are photos you’ll want to show everyone, and display on your wall when you get back home. And those holiday cards? Done!

These photos will capture memories that will make you smile for years after you’ve returned home, and marvel at how the kids have grown and changed as time passes. And do you really need more of those schlocky souvenirs anyway? Didn’t think so.

Family Vacation Photos with Flytographer

Our photo shoot took place in Vancouver, one of our favorite cities, and at one of our favorite places, Granville Island. While we’re very familiar with the Island, our Flytographer Gillian found some new, unique spots for cool photo backdrops. She encouraged us to be natural and have fun with the shoot.

I couldn’t be more delighted with how our pictures turned out. As a parent of teenagers – young men really – I can tell you that time with our children passes far too quickly. It’s worth taking an hour out of your travels to capture these precious moments in a way you’ll want to remember forever.

The photo shoot was just one hour long, and Gillian probably snapped 250+ photos. We received 50 photos within 48 hours of our shoot, an impressive turnaround time. The boys couldn’t wait to see themselves and share some with friends – they are the Insta generation after all. I’ve posted some of our favorites below. Tell me which one you like best!

    Never heard off flytographer – this is good idea and if they can capture the photos like on this post, then I am up for it. What a great idea.

  • That’s a lovely idea! I can really see how well it would work for families with small kids…

  • Claudia says:

    I hadnt heard of Flytographer but its such an awesome concept! Honestly, we sometimes come from vacation and always regret that we take pictures separately and not together.

  • Indrani says:

    Knowing about Flytographer the first time. A very interesting concept. They are more like holidaygraphers. I have liked one of these insta pics and instantly recognized it. 🙂

    • Claudia says:

      Glad you enjoyed learning about the service! I hope you get to try it out one day for yourself.

  • Jennifer says:

    I’ve always heard such great things about Flytographer and any photos I’ve seen have always been great. I’d love to have a shoot done here in Bordeaux, but they don’t have photographers here yet.

    • Claudia says:

      Yes, I would think that Paris or Brussels would be the closest options of the 200+ cities they cover. Good luck!

  • Brianna says:

    I used Flytographer last year in Washington DC and I absolutely loved the experience. Your pictures turned out great!

  • Amy Whitley says:

    LOVE this photos! What a gift! Entered to win…the next step would be to make my kids do this!

    • Claudia says:

      Thank you Amy. 🙂 And I’m so glad that you entered – good luck! You must do this with your boys – pull out that Mother Card! 😉

  • Christina says:

    What a fantastic addition to any vacation! Hubby is usually the photographer in our group so he is not in that many photos. This would certainly change things 🙂

    • Claudia says:

      It’s certainly nice to have everyone in the photo, looking good and having fun. It’s worth to do at least once or twice, if just to see how much the kids have changed over the years!

  • JodyR says:

    This is such a great idea. When you have a pro you know you’re going to get great shots vs some parent or another tourist taking a quick pic for you. I love this service!

  • Aw these make such happy memories with you and your family. This would definitely be on my shopping list because it would be lovely to get some couple photos of me and my partner abroad (I’m always the one behind the camera!). Plus they’re so professionally done, you couldn’t ask for a better present 🙂

  • Carola says:

    What a great idea! It’s probably out of financial reach for most people on a regular vacation, but I think it’s a great twist on the family photo. And having a network means you can trust the result. Like it!

    Happy continued travels!

  • Those are some brilliant shots Claudia and your sons definitely have that model look going on. Super photogenic family here. Our family shots are tucked away Polaroids, sitting in a shoe box LOL. No joke! Great service here. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wow! It’s good to know that they are already offering this kind of service. It will be perfect for group travels and family vacations. Not to mention that the shots are very good and capture the right moments.

  • fernanda says:

    Great way to have everybody within the frame and not having to stop random people on the streets to take that shot!

  • Your photos turned out AMAZING!!! Such a beautiful family. Love getting to see you in them vs behind the camera. I’m in love with this service.
