Reportedly, there is a growing trend for people to have their vacations professionally photographed to avoid having that one family member "who is the one taking the pictures and is never in any of the photos."
Her clients say the results clean, crisp, blur-free images ideal for holiday cards and brag books are worth it.
Genevieve Shaw Brown, travel editor for ABC News, said social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, were a big driving force behind this phenomenon.
People want to create the illusion that theyre having the perfect vacation or they have the perfect life and a professional photographer is certainly going to help you do that, she said.
The Internet is full of vacation photo package deals, ranging in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. Those packages are available all over the world from Disney resorts to the quaint streets of Paris.
