In this day and age, every parent is the owner of a smartphone that has insane amounts of storage on their phone. This can lead parents to go overboard when it comes to snapping photos and taking videos of their children. But this can be a very problematic habit, and here’s why you should avoid it at all costs.
Less is More
Taking too many photos can get overwhelming, and the truth is that you’ll probably never have time to go through them all. Try to focus on quality over quantity, and make each picture actually count. If you’re someone who likes to take a lot of pictures at once, be sure to go over them afterward and delete the ones that are less good.
Live in the Moment
Another important thing to remember is to be present in the moment. Sometimes we get so caught up in taking pictures that we forget to enjoy what’s happening right in front of us. So don’t be afraid to put the camera down and soak in those precious moments with your kids.
Stop Feeling Guilty
And don’t worry, taking fewer pictures doesn’t mean you appreciate your kids any less. In fact, it might make you appreciate the photos you take even more. Plus, it’s easier to find and enjoy your favorite pictures when they’re not buried in a sea of photos.
