Saturday Snapshots

Just love this commercial! It's so me!

I've recently been obsessed with photographs and preserving memories. I think it's super important to document life. We do not remember the days... we remember the moments is my new motto. I love documenting every aspect of life. My resolution this year was to take at least 5 photos a week. I try to take as many pictures of my students to create scrapbooks and end of the year dvds for the families to cherish. 

Well, today I'm starting Saturday Snapshots to share photography tips, cool photography apps, and shots from my life. I'd love for you to link up sharing any photos that you would like. They don't have to be recent! It could be wordless... It's going to be open for sharing moments/memories that you feel are worth sharing. Since Five for Friday is going on a hiatus for the summer... feel free to share random photos of your week. 

Saturday Snapshots is about your life. It is about capturing, documenting, and preserving all that is important to us.
I want you to be more attentive to the everyday things that make up your life … instead of only focusing on the big moments.

Some ideas to record

Photograph your routine
Capture the milestones
Your favorite hangout spot
A favorite piece of furniture

Books your reading
Your city’s landmarks
Food photos
Pet portraits
A current love

 I think my obsession started when I got my first  DSLR. Now it's a hobby! Here are some tips that I typed up to share with you. 

And...here are my Saturday Snapshots

Favorite new photography apps

Instagram-I'm loving the video portion. Take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram — it's that easy. You can even share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. It's a new way to see the world.

Snap Chat-Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless your friend takes a screenshot!

Pip Camera-PIP Camera is the best companion for self-snapshots! Make your photos extra fun with creative shots!
