blog carousel – alternative cameras – buffalo ny child family baby photographer

Wow it has been way too long since I have participated in one of these awesome blog carousels! This month the theme is “alternative cameras” – which for me means the use of my iphone 4 as my camera. I use it for documenting everyday life in my family – it is always in my pocket and readily available – which with 5 small kiddos and the constant running around is a necessity. In fact up until this past Christmas, I didn’t even own a point and shoot camera (I did finally purchase a Canon S95 and love it!).

If I just counted correctly I have 21, yes 21, camera apps on my iphone 4. I have linked each of the apps I mention below to the app store for easy finding, just click on the app name!

This first one with the sunset – is from using the app Snapseed and then the image below is is from opening the same picture into a fun app called Percolator.

Like I said I love capturing just everyday moments with my iphone. The morning light in my bedroom with the baby, an afternoon playing outside on bikes (in January. . . .in Buffalo I may add!), and a quiet moment with two of my boys laughing on the couch together. The apps used here are Snapseed and Hipstamatic.

I love taking photos of me with my kids with the iphone too and they (usually) think it is a blast. Of course – the furry members of our family are never excluded in the picture taking process either. . .Ben the Boston and the new addition, Ellie the Goldendoodle. Ben LOVES to pull his bed to wherever the sunlight is, I really love that photo because it is so him. We just picked up Ellie on Friday so this was her first photo at home – then me and the little man hanging out and my daughter and myself at her first concert. Apps used – Shake It Photo, Camera+ and Snapseed.

Please now take a ride on over to my friend Julie Tauro, Kitchener Waterloo child and family photographer‘s website and see how she interpreted this great theme!

    Samara – these are so FUN! The one on the bike is adorable. It almost looks like it could have been taken 30 years ago (well, except for the helmet lol). I love that timeless look of a snapshot, a frozen moment in time. Thanks for posting!

    love these!! I love the vintage look of some of these, at first glance they look like they were taken with an old camera on film many years ago :)
