Mobile Photography Monday | Tips for mom’s photographing their children

While I feel more comfortable capturing my memories on a larger camera with higher quality resolution,there are some days I know a moment has to be captured with whatever camera I have in my hand at the time. If it’s not my DSLR then it’s usually my cellphone, which is currently an iPhone 6s.
Each Monday I share my favorite iPhone photos from the week or weeks before. I do this to show you that you can use any camera to document your memories. I use Lightroom mobile to edit most of my iPhone photos. I also do this to encourage moms to create a visual diary of their children’s lives through photography. 

Don’t let the images merely sit on your phone, though. There are aps where you can print your images in books (Chatbooks, etc. ) or you can send them to your local drugstore or Wal-Mart to have them printed so you have tangible images as well in case your phone doesn’t back up and you accidentally drop your phone in the toilet. Not that I’ve ever done this. (My one year old at the time did it for me).

The story behind the photo | Bottom’s Up

Welcome to my new Thursday feature: The Story Behind the Photo, which is where I’ll choose one of my photos and tell you the story behind it.

Up this week is a photo I affectionately call “Bottom’s Up.”

My daughter was playing on the stairs in our backyard and at one point I saw her bending over. I thought she was just bending over to look at something on the step but then I realized I could see her eyeball through her legs and she was watching me and grinning. I knew I had to capture the moment and that even though others might not be able to see her eyes peeking through, I could, and I would be able to remember her personality beginning to develop even more.
