Are Cell Phone Photos Of My Baby Enough?

As much as I adore my iPhone, and my favorite photo apps — Instagram and Hipstamatic — I have started feeling some major mom-guilt about the fact that 90% of the photos that I have taken of Kara so far are cell phone pictures.

I have this vision of her at age 20, thumbing through a printed photo book of her baby pictures, then asking me if I actually owned a real camera when she was a baby.

Yes, future-Kara, Mommy owns a real camera. In fact, it is a really fancy camera, with all the bells and whistles, which makes the guilt even stronger.

I know that I took more photos of my son when he was a baby, but having two kids now just makes doing anything a million times harder, and I find myself grabbing my cell phone instead of taking an additional five minutes to pull out my good camera.

No apps, no funky color filters, and no vintage borders. Just simple, clear, high-resolution images shot with my Nikon.

Do you ever feel like the convenience of your cell phone makes you neglect taking photos with your camera?
