Busy Mom’s Guide: DIY Photos {Editing Tutorial} with your iPhone

I’ve always been a photography junkie. I love finding the perfect angle, light and setting and capturing a magical moment. I don’t have any idea what I’m doing, but that’s ok because if it’s a hobby you don’t need to have a clue. I do appreciate quality, however, just not for the hefty price tag attached to photography sessions these days.

But for school pictures or the endless 3 month, 6 month, 12 month, and so on, I’ve found a cheaper solution, and it’s all wrapped up in a tiny little box I take with me everywhere I go. I’m sure you have one of these amazing little boxes in your life, as well. Enter, the Smart Phone…. or more specifically, my quite outdated iPhone 5S.
