Since we are in the heart of vacation season, I thought it was a good time to share some ideas and images with a vacation theme.  
Use your self-timer 
It's nice to have a record of everyone that was on the trip and often the photographer get's left out. For this shot, I set the camera on a pic-nic table. I also ran back to the camera a couple of times to increase the odds of having a nice picture with everyone looking at the camera.
Capture the flavour of the people and place you are visiting 
On a recent trip to PEI, we rented a cottage that was on a dairy farm. We had a great chat with one of the farmers and made sure to ask him for a quick portrait. Don't be shy about asking someone that ends up being part of your trip if you can take their picture.
Watch for details 
While we took other shots during Sophia's first attempt at mini golf this one is my favourite. It's of her picking out the purple ball - her favourite colour.
Always have your camera ready! 
When traveling with kids, you never know what might happen.
