Vacation Planning

June 9, 2015

Whether you are planning an in-state road trip or a faraway tropical vacation this summer, the most important thing to bring, as a Heritage Maker, is your camera. As we know, family vacations always take a bit of planning, so go ahead and plan out your storybook, too. Many of our vacation storybook templates walk you through the must-see places and do much of the location photography, journaling, and background history for you allowing you to focus on pictures of your family and getting some time in for your own fun.

Remember, you’ll want to tell the story of your vacation instead of just taking a bunch of random photographs. “Niagara Falls, New York” 8 x 8 Storybook, template 125110, is a perfect road trip example. This professionally designed storybook by Roxanne Buchholz, as well as hundreds of others available in our Template Gallery, will help you visualize the vacation photo possibilities ahead of time as well as suggest the places that you won’t want to miss along the way.Niagara Falls New York

By doing a bit planning and being intentional, you can get photos that are memorable but that also don’t get in the way of your relaxation and enjoyment. “The Badlands” 8 x 8 Storybook, template 110572, is perfect for a vacation of scenic National and State Parks where you really want the beauty of nature to take center stage.Badlands National Park
