How to Capture More Memories With Family Photos

     Someone in the family usually has a camera in hand during a family vacation or special occasion or even when the whole family is having a fun day together. These candid shots are great and make for a special photo album. But, later in life when children or parents are reminiscing over the photos, they find that someone is always missing and there are no photos of the entire family together. The camera bug in the family is usually the one missing because that member is always taking the photos. For this reason, in order to have a complete family photo history you need to make an effort to have family portraits taken as your family grows. Here are a few ways to accomplish that:

Professional Portraits

Professional portraits are more costly then photos you take and develop on your own, but they add so much to your family's photo history. Some families take a family portrait every year during the holidays or at an annual family reunion. The saying goes, you get what you pay for, and paying the extra cost for a professional portrait gives higher quality results then a personal camera and results your family will treasure. The perfect lighting conditions and complementary backdrops bring out the best in your family, and isn't it nice when everyone is dressed up. Every home has a place to proudly display a family portrait in an attractive picture frame whether on a wall, above a fireplace or on a shelf.

Family Vacation Photos

Family vacations are a great time for taking family photos. The only complication is that someone is always taking the photos and is not in them. It is important for your family vacation memories to find a way to include all family members. Some tourist attractions take photos of your group as you enter and have reasonably priced photo prints for you to pick up before you leave. This is a great way to get a wonderful photo of your family having fun together. Another option is to ask someone to take your family's picture. Most tourists are happy to snap a photo with your camera and may ask you to take a photo of their entire family in return. Displaying your vacation photos in picture frames is a simple and fun way to share the memories of those fun family times.

Photo Collages

If you find you have stacks of great photos of all your family members but none of the photos includes the entire family together, don't despair. You can still create a photo display of all your family by putting together a collage of your favorite photos. This option can be an artistic and creative approach to arranging your photos and solves the problem of which photo to display of your special vacation, holiday or family outing. Collage photo frames are available to hold multiple photos in a single opening or you could choose a specially designed collage picture frame that has multiple picture openings.
