A picture is worth 1,000 words in Gulf Shores

You've probably heard the phrase "A picture is worth 1,000 words," and the saying could not be any more true than in Gulf Shores, where you can capture precious moments of your kids playing in the sand or friends sharing a few laughs over a basket of fried shrimp and fresh oysters.

A picture is worth 1,000 words in Gulf Shores

We've all been there: Your kids are playing in the sand and having the time of their lives, and you want to take a photo so you can remember this moment forever. Suddenly, your camera shuts off and you miss this golden opportunity.

Before you take your family on the next Gulf Shores area getaway, study these preparation tips so you can capture gorgeous vacation shots that will remind you of your incredible visit years after you've returned home.

Always have extra batteries

Whether your camera has rechargeable batteries or needs to get a fresh pair every so often, you should always have back-up supplies. That way, you won't have to remember the time when you were in the middle of an Orange Beach fishing trip and couldn't take a picture of your big catch because your
camera died.

Always be ready

You don't want to have your camera in front of your
face for your entire vacation, but to capture hundreds
of stunning images before you head back home, you do need to be poised and ready at all times. Keep your point-and-shoot camera in your pocket or purse, or if you have a more professional digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, invest in a sturdy strap so you can keep it slung around your shoulder.

Be patient

Learn to practice patience and restraint with your camera, especially when your friends are trying to concentrate on their game at Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan or Perdido Key golf courses. Wait for the perfect moment to capture action shots or emotions. Even a simple smile from your child adds to your collection
of amazing vacation photos and recalls cherished memories.
