The holiday season is now upon us and it is a time when you are more likely to get your full family together (It is usually like herding cats if you try to do it without an occasion). Can I be bold enough to suggest that you plan to take a family photo? If you answer yes, I would like to give you a few tips.

St. Augustine has some great spots to take photos and it is always great to have a portrait in front of an iconic landmark. A few suggestions are: The Fort (the most obvious), The Fountain at the Lightner Museum, Avilles Street (all of the European charm you could hope for) and of course our famous Bridge of Lions (there is a wooden deck on the west side of the bridge and it makes a fantastic backdrop for a family portrait).

Don’t forget to give everyone an idea of what to wear before you venture out! Have fun and don’t forget to print and hang your family photo!
