The Best Camera is the One With You--Happy 4th of July!

The best camera is the one you have on you.  A mother and daughter stand on a corner in New York City near Radio City Music Hall.  Photo by the husband of Denver Family Photographer, Kristiina Craven.

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!!
