My Instagram account is no stranger to Vivi, in fact she’s kind of the main attraction, as are many toddlers on Instagram. Some of her silliest and most ridiculous moments have been forever captured in square format to enjoy both online and in print.
Every two months, I have a hardcover book made using all of my Instagram photos from the previous 60 days. We all look at them regularly and they are probably Vivi’s favorite books to “read” to us.
Now that Vivi is a little older and well aware of what I’m doing with my camera (and not always such a big fan of it) I have become much more stealth in my picture taking, which means I get some pretty unique angles from either holding my phone at my side and shooting blind or holding it on the ground, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. I’d say for every 20 photos I take, one ends up being a real keeper. I’m far more accurate with my DSLR, but my phone fits in my pocket much easier.
