Many parents run out and buy a giant fancy DSLR to document all of their babies milestones, because these are moments frozen in time people – nothing but the best. They read the user’s manual cover to cover and learn how to use all those lenses and even buy a cool camera bag. And then, what happens inevitably for most people? It barely ever gets used. That jumbo camera makes it’s appearance on special zoo trips, birthdays and Christmas, but the rest of the year? ….Not so much.
DSLR’s are great and take amazing photos, but the problem is they’re bulky and not practical for a parent who’s already toting around a baby, a diaper bag (and probably a laundry list of other items) to add to her list of things to bring.
So, how do parents capture these precious moments? Via their camera phones! Some may scoff, but the quality of cell phone photos has improved dramatically – especially with all the great photo apps. And, in order to prove my point I got real mama’s to share their favorite cell phone baby photos and they are kind of ridiculously adorable. Who says you need a fancy camera?
See the baby photo cuteness after the jump!
Thanks mamas for sharing your cute little ones!
