Photo diary : A Family Photo shoot in Venice

Even though we take countless photos when we go on our trips, I’m never good about taking Family Photos or sending out Holiday cards every year.  So this past trip to Italy, we made it a point to budget some time and travel dollars for a photo shoot in Venice with a local photographer with Flytographer.  We are not good about taking candid shots or the Instagramy shots where you are always looking away from the camera or showing off your back.  It was our first but a fun experience posing for a photo shoot – Marta met us early morning and took us for a walk around the less touristy side of Venice as the city was just waking up.  We saw the butchers and fishermen in the fish market getting ready for the day.  The locals stopping at vegetable and flower vendors to pick up produce for the day and chit chat.  Marta weaved around the more popular places as well and found fantastic photo opportunities – we were so happy with our Flytographer experience and would have to plan for doing more of these Photo shoots in the future… I’m thinking South Africa and Melbourne for sure.  Have you done the photo shoots when you travel?
