me and mine | 3 of 12 / by Carey

I adore my iPhone for a myraid of reasons, but one of them is how utterly easy it is for ME to be in photos with my children.  I just hit that little reverse button and we get an image with all of us.  I may not be in that many of our "official" big camera photos, but I am in a ton with them with my phone.  No, the front camera isn't as good as the back iPhone camera is.  And no, the quality of that image isn't as good as my DSLR.  But the thing is... they exist.  These images now exist.  Whereas, if I were depending on images of ME with them with my DSLR exclusively, all of these images with me with them, out and about and living their childhood, wouldn't exist.

They are certainly nothing artistic or creative or noteworthy to anyone else.  But to me, and hopefully to them one day, they are precious.  Records.  I was there.  Their momma was there.


Please visit the rest of my fellow Me and Mine photographers and see how they documented themselves with their loved ones.  Next up is my favorite Suzanne Carey.
