Melissa Grelo is getting candid about capturing her family in the moment.

The Canadian television personality took to Instagram on Wednesday to share her latest vacation photos taken during a Flytographer session, which allows travellers to book local photographers for their memories.

Shot in northern Italy near Lago di Garda, the 46-year-old took in the town of Sirmione with her husband, Ryan Gaggi, and their nine-year-old daughter, Marquesa, in the photos.

For the shoot, Grelo wore an orange, pink and green garden-print crop top from Farm Rio with a matching tiered maxi skirt, along with gold hoop earrings and a sleek bun. Her husband opted for a white short sleeve shirt with green stripes and white shorts, while their daughter rocked an ivory-coloured halter dress and a high bun.

Grelo kicked off the caption to her post with a quote from famed artist, Andy Warhol.

"'The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do,'" she shared.

The moderator of "The Social" then explained how she wants to cherish these kinds of moments when her family is "happy and healthy" before she shared how much Marquesa means to her.

"My daughter is growing up so fast before my eyes," Grelo continued. "We're trying to give her all the experiences we can muster so that she can understand how vast the world is and how she can best see herself contributing to it when she's older. This planet needs her, and all children, more than ever to turn the tide in a better direction."

The Toronto-born TV personality continued to express her gratitude towards the photographer, named Sergy, for capturing the "sweet moments" of her family living "la dolce vita" in Italy.

She also noted that this was her family's seventh Flytographer photo shoot, after having booked other photographers during trips to Barcelona, Lisbon, Vienna and Palma da Mallorca.

"Capturing what I want to remember in the moment I never want to forget," Grelo ended her caption.

Fellow television hosts, influencers and fans showed their love for Grelo and her family in the comments of the post.

"Stunning," wrote "ET Canada" host Sangita Patel, along with two red heart emojis.

"These are absolute perfection," shared Toronto-based influencer Sasha Exeter.

"Love this and hoping to do the same when I travel with my son!" one person penned, where Grelo replied saying, "Do it!! You'll love it!!"

"These photos are precious," another added. "Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts on the importance of capturing moments in photos. Your words brought tears to my eyes as I have always felt this way. Time passes too quickly."

"Love! The natural lighting is spectacular!" one fan chimed in, with Grelo saying, "Italian magic!"
