Go On! Leave That SLR at Home! Moms Share Their Favorite Smart Phone Photos

By amberdoty |

I have a digital camera. It takes crystal clear, high resolution photographs, and I love it for capturing all the silly things my kids get into.

Unfortunately, it’s also kind of large and clunky and delicate, which means it requires its own bag when we go out somewhere and it’s not always practical for me to carry around a diaper bag and a camera bag while chasing after two children.

It’s because of this that I find myself resorting to my smartphone for snapping quick shots of the children in our day to day. Pulling out my iPhone, which I keep in my pocket at all times, is just faster than grabbing the DSLR and finding the right settings and framing up my shot. And let’s face it, when photographing children, speed is key.

That’s not to say traditional cameras aren’t all things awesome, because they are. I love mine, but I think I love my smartphone camera, with all the photo apps that come with it, just as much.

It turns out I’m not the only one. I asked a few blogging friends from here at Kid Scoop and around the web to share their favorite smartphone camera captured memory and here is what they sent me:

I took this photo of my son at the end of a day spent at a fall fest. We were picking out pumpkins to take home. He is always so stoic in photographs.
