    I love this! I’m not a mom (yet) but I already feel like I’m always the one taking the photo at family events and even at home with my husband and our cats. I love the idea of the interval timer… I may have to look in to that because I love candids.ReplyCancel

    I love all the tips! As a mom it is so hard to get into the images sometimes. And I am ALWAYS taking pictures of my hubby and little one, sans MAMA. I will have to try some of these. I loved the images of mom on the bed. I may try that and put my cell phone on my ceiling fan 🙂ReplyCancel

    I love every bit of this!  While I’m not a human mom (yet), I am a fur-baby mom of older dogs and need to get in photos with them more.  Agreed, you’ll never ever say, “I wish I had taken fewer photos!”  Lets fill up those walls and albums with love, ladies!  ReplyCancel

    Oh my goodness!  I can’t believe I won!  Thank you so very much.  I wish I had known about you when my daughter was born in October – I didn’t end up getting any newborn photos (only the few taken in the hospital, and they aren’t great).  ReplyCancel

      Hi Autumn,
