Taking Photos: 4 Ways to Capture Travel Memories

girl with a cameraSummer is a great time for making and capturing family memories, whether it’s a beach sunset after a day of fun or a first time riding a bike. Grab your camera or smartphone and your kids and get out there to start taking pictures. Here are four ways to capture photos as a family:

Go on a Photography Walk. Some parks offer free walks to take photos of nature within the park. Or, just start taking pictures of everything interesting that you and your kids see. Print them out or upload them to an online photo album to document your experiences.

Create a Family Photobook: Snap some fun pictures and upload them to Shutterfly to create family photo albums. As a bonus, stay at participating Preferred Family hotels this summer and get a promo code good for a free 20-page photo album (a $30 value) from Shutterfly.

Take an Alphabet Photo Tour. Grab a camera for each child and go on an Alphabet Photo Tour. Start with the letter A and have your children take pictures of things they see that start with that letter, like an apple tree or an ambulance. Print out the pictures to make alphabet memory books.

Create and Send Postcards: No need to stop in gift shops for postcards of places you visit. Thanks to several postcard apps, like Postagram and Postcards on the Run, you and your kids can create postcards from snapshots that you’ve taken on your adventures.

How do you like to take photos and preserve memories when you travel as a family? Let me know in the comments section below.
