Why I Love My Camera Phone

by Stacey

There are times I feel guilty about not using my ‘real camera’ enough. I think about how much I love the pictures that I take when I use it. I think about the cost. I think about what I should be doing as I work to become a better photographer.

But then there are the times that I am scrolling through my camera role looking for blog post inspiration and I stumble upon pictures that would never have happened if it weren’t for the phone on my camera . And when I stumble upon these pictures, I often remember moments that I have already forgotten. Moments that would have remained forgotten were it not for the quick second that I snapped the picture with my phone. This is when I know that the best camera really is the one you have with you.

An example is below. A simple trip to a local store really can result in some pretty pictures and some good memory holders if you have a camera with you. Any camera.






  1. I love my camera phone for the same reason. I capture so many little everyday moments with my kids, or just things that make me happy, because I have that tiny little camera with me almost all the time. And really, with a little tweaking, they’re not bad pictures at all!

    At the beach with my sister this weekend, after I’d whipped my phone out probably one too many times, she said, “That’s the one reason I’d really like to have a smart phone.” ‘Nuff said.

    That looks like such a pretty store too!
    I bring my camera phone everywhere and I forget with my real camera. So I think they’re both important to learn and to use, for sure!

  4. I love the idea of your camera phone as a way to remember the beauty in the every day! Makes me want to go scroll through my own and see what I’ve forgotten 🙂

    I get frustrated with my cell phone camera too – it takes horrible pictures. But thank goodness for it – to capture the unexpected:)!
