What camera should I buy to take pictures of my family?

Weirdly enough, I am at a point in my life where I love to talk cameras. Aperture, depth, brand, mirrorless, let’s talk. The more I learn, the more I want to know.

But guess what.

You don’t need to know any of it.

💕 This little sweetie is from one of my FAVORITE families 💕

While there are great cameras out there that have capabilities to take amazing shots, people looking for a great camera to take pictures of their family and kids should look no further than the phone store.

In all seriousness. Just use your phone! And here is why:

1. Family moments happen organically. Obviously, there is a time and place for me to come take your photos: once a year, maternity photos, graduation photos, engagements, etc. An at your session, I will do my best to make you feel beautiful, have fun, and get a high variety of amazing shots. I will worry about the technical camera stuff, and you worry about having fun:) But, on a Saturday morning, when your son is in a diaper sitting on the counter with Pancake batter on his nose and flour covering your kitchen, USE YOUR IPHONE! Cameras in phones are so advanced these days, so snap that candid picture of your baby. Get that shot of your dog after he broke into his food bag. Those are the moments that make up your life, and they pair so well with professional images displayed throughout your home. You’ll love having both.

2. I’m at the stage in life where several of my friends have started having babies. Which is awesome! It is so much fun to watch my closest friends become mothers! Once thing I noticed- they always have a million bags! Diaper bag, purse, extra clothes, pump bag, etc. You DO NOT need to add a bag of camera lenses, gear, and accessories to that list!! Most people have their phone, so use that and schedule a session with me to get those Christmas pictures going:)

Don’t buy an expensive, heavy camera to carry through your life. Buy a good phone with a lot of Megapixels. Get out in the world. Enjoy your kids, your sweetie, and your dog. Take the shots that will keep those memories alive. Book a session with me to get those quality shots to frame throughout your home and let me worry about calibrated focal points and the exposure triangle! You and your crew just come have fun at your session! 🙂
