The survey also found that over half of British families don't have a single photo of the whole family from their last holiday.

'For me, photographing a family is all about creating and capturing a magical moment,' Burnand said of his appointment.

'A family photograph is a point in time in the life of that family which can be treasured forever. I am looking forward, through this commission with Disneyland Paris, to creating a unique series of family portraits,'

As one of Britain's most respected photographers, Hugo has worked with some of the world's most famous people, including the Royal Family, David and Samantha Cameron, Victoria Beckham and Michael Jackson.
