When it comes to celebrate long-term wedding anniversaries, husbands and wives might get in trouble. After having been living together for many years, they almost gave everything as present to their beloved ones, and might run short of ideas.

This is why a short couple holiday in a romantic place might be a good option. A loving husband or wife might organize a surprise trip to a place they never visited before or else to some place they liked a lot in the past. Venice works well in both cases and a couple holiday in this city cannot be but a very welcome present for any beloved one.

From Venice with mum: family photo portraits

Spending a few days in Venice cannot but strengthen a mother-and daughter relationship while ensuring great memories.

People travel to Venice for many reasons. Couples in love arrive in the city to celebrate their wedding, spend their honeymoon holidays or just to look for a very romantic background for their love story.

Friends and single tourists travel to Venice to discover a unique environment, visit museums and monuments, admiring the beauty of ancient palaces and narrow alleys, enjoy the winter light or the sunset on the lagoon. Families spend some time in Venice to offer their kids a kind of adventurous holiday in unusual surroundings.

Free time with her dearest one in a gorgeous city and high-quality picture to remember it…what else for a perfect present for a special mum?

Beside, an increasing number of grown-ups is visiting (or coming back to) Venice with a dear parent. A son and his mother plan to spend a few days there to enjoy a trip together. A daughter is surprising her mother with a short holiday in Venice, making her long-time dream come true. These days will be cherished for long time thereafter.

This is why some of these “couples” are choosing to treat themselves with a family photo service in Venice: they want to keep souvenir of this special time together using high-quality pictures by a professional photographer. This is a nice chance to enjoy a careless walk in the city and have themselves portrayed with extraordinary background.

Discovering Venice’s most hidden beauty and getting portrayed in nice family portraits…

The photographs taken in such occasions well portray their feelings: surprise for the city’s beauty, excitement to discover its many attractions, happiness to share such experience with a dear one, perfect mutual understanding and complicity, pride for having such a special person next to you, and so on…

In short, family photos are not completely different from couple portraits since they also capture love. Not a romantic kind of love but a more serene one, deeply rooted in blood and DNA and strengthened by long-time care and affection.

Indeed the feeling that family pictures capture at their best is gratefulness: the gratefulness grown-up daughters and sons feel for all the efforts their parents made for them; the parents’ gratefulness to receive the best present ever: precious time spent with their most dear ones surrounded by beauty. And the pictures themselves, working as an added present, well embody this “Thank you” voice coming from their hearts.
