Photography is my career, but it’s also a little window into my own life that allows me to really value and cherish the now – what’s in front of me. It truly helps me appreciate little little moments, the big, exciting things, and this season of parenting 3 curious and full-of-life children. After a childhood with a mom who loved taking photos of our lives, to experience the power of a camera in my own hand photographing my own babies, it just makes me all emotional.
When I asked on Instagram how you all take photos of your day-to-day lives, a lot of you asked for recommendations for cameras. First of all, any camera you have will do! You don’t need a “fancy” camera to make beautiful images. It’s what you do with the camera that makes the difference. So whether you want to invest in a camera for your family or you want to use the simple phone camera you have, it’s all about what works for you and your family and what feels good to you. We have a variety of cameras but, that’s because we do this for a living and photography is our passion. I love having a mix of style and type of camera to use for our lives here at home, but again that’s just something I love, not something needed.
Here are my favorite cameras for photographing our daily lives:
Always remember that there isn’t a “right” way to take a photo. It’s all about what you see and how you see it. We all see things differently, which is what makes the art of photography so beautiful. The most important thing I’ve discovered is using photography as a tool to live more in the moment. I hope you can find that, too.
