How to Take the Most Instaworthy Vacation Pics

June 09, 2017

Want to blow up your Instagram with some awesome summer vacation photos? Believe it or not, some of the best family and kid pics have been thought out and planned ahead of time. If you want to gain some unbelievable shots, read on to learn how to get all members of the family to play it up and pose perfectly!

  1. Backdrop is Everything

Research points of interest prior to your trip, and make it a point to visit each one. You can make a backdrop check list to ensure you don’t miss any pretty points, and you can also ensure you experience your vacation destination to the fullest.


  1. Time of Day Counts


Always try to have the sun behind you, and never look into it. You’ll end up with a bunch of unsightly squints. Evening pictures are always best, right before the sun sets because the lighting is optimal and complimentary. If you can time out a sunset or sunrise with the kids by the ocean or lake, that also makes for an unforgettable backdrop.  


  1. Be Unique

The best pictures are the most unique pictures. How cool would it be to purchase costume swimwear for the kids to wear and capture an image of it? Everyone always takes traditional kids in swim suit pics, but imagine if their swim suit allowed them to look like a super hero, fireman, mermaid, princess, or other cool character? These costume suits aren’t just fun to wear, but they serve up plenty of protection from the sun because they have a UV 50+ rating and fully cover the skin!


  1. Unpose

Sometimes, posed shots make it seem like you’re trying too hard to get the perfect shot. In past experience, it’s the unposed shots that are the most captivating. Your child playing fetch with your dog on the beach, your child building a sandcastle, or your family jumping over waves are moments that should be savored and captured without asking for a smile or perfectly positioned pose.


  1. Dress Brightly

Bright colors look flattering on all skin tones and they photograph well. So, whether you’re posing or not, you can ensure that your photo subjects will stand out amongst a bold background, and not just blend in.

These five tips will ensure you get the most instaworthy vacation shots that are sure to get all your friends and followers buzzing. Be sure to make the most of every moment by capturing the moment!
