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.
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.
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.
