Are you a photo lover? Jenna Templeton shares some fun new products and ideas to try.
I’ve always had a strong interest in photography. As a child, I’d go with my parents to photography club and listen to different photographers talk about their work. After I was given my first camera for one of my birthdays, I couldn’t stop taking photos. My favourite toys became my subjects and I’d snap photos of them playing Monopoly together or I’d set up a mock ‘class of Jenna’s room’ type portrait.
Now, I enjoy taking daily photographs of my craft projects, creative process, travels, daily life, family time or composing a fun #flatlay or product styling themed shots. Instagram has also become a BFF.
Recently, I got a big collection of my digital photos together and decided to have a handful printed. I have to tell you it was a HUGE buzz to hold these printed photos in my hand.
I’ve also recently taken up scrapbooking…which is now commonly known as life documenting. From photo books to printers that print your snaps straight from your Smartphone. Just think of it like crafting combined with photos and journaling. So where to begin?
Here are some products I’m loving and using myself right now:
Instax DIY Mini Decoration Set Harvey Norman
A cute little DIY Kit you can use to hang your printed Instax Camera photos on the wall.
