Family Travel Storytelling with Images

We attended the Beaches Social Media on the Sand Conference

BeachesTurksandCaicos10

I love taking pictures. I can’t even count how many times I have filled up my iPhone with images, and then had to start deleted apps so I could take more pictures. Along with taking pictures, I love storytelling with images. One of my favorite outlets to do this is on Instagram.

While attending the Beaches Social Media on the Sand Conference at Beaches Turks and Caicos, they invited all attendees to participate in an interactive Instagram photo challenge. With iPhone photography being one of my favorite hobbies (and now exploring GoPro photography), I couldn’t wait to participate but promised myself that I wouldn’t continue with the challenge unless my photos were authentic and still told the story of our travel experience.

I enjoyed unleashing my creativity by using my favorite apps to edit my favorite memories of our family vacation experience during our stay at Beaches Turks and Caicos. I was able to use their prompts to create an online story that I shared with all our Instagram followers, friends and family.

To our surprise, we were excited to have been awarded the prize for the most creative photo, and will get to return next year to create more special memories at the 2016 Beaches Social Media on the Sand Conference.

For those who were not following our adventure on Instagram, I am excited to share the photos from the challenge that won us a return trip to a beautiful Beaches Resort next year.

I encourage all of you to be creative and use Instagram to tell not only your travel stories but also your life story. Explore with new apps, capture memorable moments and share them with others.
