We've been on a little mini vacation to New York City with the kids and while I took my big camera out quite a bit, we used our camera phones A LOT! And you know what? I'm okay with that. We got pictures of stuff I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. Are they perfect? No. But we captured the moment and I couldn't be happier. (And my back is happier, too!)
I hope you are capturing your family with whatever camera you have on you this holiday! Happy Fourth of July!!
