Making photo memories with smart phones
I had baby journals and photo albums for my first two children, but found it very hard to keep up with them when my two youngest came along. Then smart phones arrived and changed everything. I can carry a camera wherever we go, as well as write short stories about the photos I take using online platforms like Instagram. The memories I'm chronicling are vibrant and colourful and read more like a beautiful picture book than the traditional memory keepers did.
Though I don't consider myself a photographer, I really enjoy the process of snapping, editing and sharing photos of our family moments and I often get asked for tips.
Here are my go-to tricks for creating your own family picture book (all photos shown are taken from my Instagram account).
