In Sarasota, we have many options for family activities. The culture of Sarasota is amazing and a great opportunity to share some of the world’s most exquisite art and nature with the whole family.

The following is a countdown of the best ways to capture a family moment:

  1. Video:

This is a great medium for rare family events, some people like to have professional videos of weddings, or home videos of a reunion or birthday party.

Pro: captures more details. Con: other people usually find the video boring.

  1. Journal:

Journaling can be a great way to capture a family memory for yourself. Many people are starting to journal when they are on vacation as a way to remember small details.

Pro: details as you remember them, free form. Con: journals are personal and not optimal for sharing.

  1. Candid Photos

Kids grow up so fast, it is nice to be able to look back and remember fun times together. Candid photos are a way to remember day to day life.

Pros: Easy and sharable, capture moments at home. Cons: not best for a Christmas card or to hang over the mantle.

  1. Family Photoshoot

There is no better way to capture your family, at any moment in time, than in a professional family photoshoot. A professional photographer will give you an image that you will cherish for life.

Pros: beautiful final product worthy of display, sending to family and friends, or keeping on your desk. Con: you have to pay for a professional.

If you are looking to capture a family moment, then using a professional photographer is the way to go. If you live in or are visiting the Sarasota area, hiring a local professional photographer can also ensure that you have the best setting and that you remember this point in time. What better souvenir than a beautiful picture of your family that you can look at every day?
