Everything You Wanted to Know about Family Photography

You come back home from your perfect family vacation, unpack your bags and go over all the photos, getting ready to share them with your family and friends. All you can find are blurry or cropped pictures taken by strangers, one of the kids always has their eyes closed in some of them and you completely miss out from the whole album. Sounds familiar? Well, you are not the only one experiencing this.

Luckily, you can book a professional photographer who will take pictures of your whole family while on a vacation anywhere in the world! These always turn out amazing and are worth sharing on Facebook and Instagram where they receive so many compliments! So just keep on reading to find out more.

What is a Family Vacation Photographer?

A family vacation photographer is a local professional who you can easily book for a private photo session anywhere in the world! All Localgrapher photographers speak English so even when you are exploring Asian wonders, hiking up South American mountains or chilling on an Italian beach, you don’t have to worry about not understanding each other.

The photographer is there for you and your party only, therefore you never share them with other families or tourists. This is a huge advantage as you can tell them exactly what you want and which photo spots you would like to visit, or if you’re not sure, even ask them what they recommend in advance!

If you have limited space in your luggage but would like to use some cute props which will make your photos even more special, just ask the photographer! They will do their best to arrange them for you. Nino, our local photographer in Dubrovnik, Croatia is for example famous for arranging ginormous bouquets of roses. All our clients always brag about him and share this unique treatment with everyone they know!

How Can I Book a Private Photo Session for the Whole Family Abroad?

Before Your Family Photo Session

Booking of a family vacation photographer is simple. You just select a destination you want to visit on our website, choose a photographer whose style you like the most and request the photo shoot. In addition to that, we ask you to give us your name, email and date of the photoshoot to be able to let you know whenever your selected photographer is available or not.

Once you and your booking agent agree on the details, they issue you the payment. Once paid, your personal photographer gets in touch with you. This is the time to ask them for recommendations and special arrangements.

If your child is celebrating a birthday and you would like to have a cake and some props in the pictures, request it! If you’re not sure what outfits to wear, ask the family vacation photographer. They all have many years of experience and are the locals in your selected area. That means that they know the best what looks stunning in the photos. Not sure what time and where to meet up? Ask the photographer, they know the best spots and times of the day to escape the crowds or catch the perfect light.

On the Day of Your Family Photo Session

You and your private photographer meet up and have your perfect photoshoot. Are you afraid that you will not be able to find each other? Don’t worry, at this point, you have already agreed on the exact time and place! Plus you know how the photographer looks like from their profile picture on our website and you have their phone number in case any hick-ups arise along the way from your hotel!

After Your Family Photo Session

After you and your family are done with this unique experience, as our clients often say “We felt surprisingly comfortable and had a fantastic time!”, our local professional photographer heads home to take care of the post-production of your photos. They add the final professional touches and upload your family vacation photographs into a secured online gallery in 4 business days!

Typically, it happens that you are still on a vacation when you receive access to the gallery from our booking team. Sometimes, the photographers take more pictures of you than you paid for. You can choose your favorite ones in the online gallery or even request to purchase more of them.

Time to enjoy HD edited photos to the fullest! The moment when you can’t get enough of your super cute babies, seeing the whole family perfectly posing and having all of their important body parts in the frame, reliving the moments through beautifully captured sites in the background and loving the smiles worth a magazine cover. These pictures are more than ready to be shared on your Instagram and framed in the living room.

With Localgrapher, you always purchase a photo package which covers a time you have your private photographer available for and the number of photos you want to receive.
