You’ve heard me singin’ Pictapgo’s praises for a few weeks now. I love their app for my photos! I use my wifi from my camera to my phone and then edit my photos in camera in my Pictapgo app. I also use A Color Story by A Beautiful Mess. Between the two of them I get results I love.

Kelly Moore Bag for taking on errands
I love the Collins for grabbing when I’m in a hurry. My camera can slide in here, making it easy to have it on the go whether I’m at the grocery store or in the car rider line waiting to pick up at school. Perfect for always having my camera with me so I don’t miss the little, random moments of climbing Esther or big helpers. Check out the Collins bag here.
