Happy National Photographer’s Month!

April is National Photographer’s Month, and I will be sure to talk up photography as much as I can this month.  Not only will I be sharing photos from some of my readers and friends and family, but also…

Every Thursday I’ll be talking more about photography by sharing some of my favorite photographer’s, and techniques I have learned along the way.

And as promised, the pictures below were submitted a few weeks ago.  I truly hope you enjoy them! And all of the pictures are taken with cell phones only =)

This is from one of my long time childhood friends, Courtney Smith,  of her beautiful daughter Sydney.  A precious moment captured.

Su Pak from submitted this photo.  It was a picture of a macaroon from one of her favorite bakery in Claremont, CA.  Pretty creative on how she even got the name of the bakery into the photo =)

This photo was taken by Alexis from  She was hanging out in Malibu for the day and utilized the Vignette App for Android while this was taken.

Maribel Reyes from submitted this phot of Los Angeles Union Station.  This is going down one of the main segways people utilize to catch their Red Line or Gold Line or Amtrak train.

Erika Kuznia submitted this photo.  It is of beautiful Lake Michigan.  Yes, in the midwest we may not have the Ocean, but we have beautiful, beautiful lakes, and the GREAT Lakes are the most spectacular.

Melissa Reyes from submitted this photo.  These are the delicious veggies laid out at the Calabasa’s Farmer’s Market.

Heather Atkinson from submitted this photo.  She says that her cell phone has become her main camera that she utilizes.  She was bummed on this day that they forgot the other camera at home until she got home that evening and was pleased with the photos taken.  She just utilized a black and white feature with this picture.

One of my amazing friends Noelle submitted this photo of her youngest daughter which has been coined the nickname of “Bean.” =) She is getting so BIG!

Lindsey Renuard from submitted this photo.  It had just started snowing, and her son, who was 3 at the time was fascinated by it, and just wanted to pick it up.  =)

Kristi from submitted this photo.  What a great capture of her child in the background of this magnificent light.  How many of you fellow photographer’s love taking pictures of fire? =)

Beautiful flowers that were captured by Jeni Ketchum that were taken by North Fort Hood, Texas.

I hope you enjoyed these photos.  I know I truly loved looking through them as I received them in my email inbox.  Next week I’ll be showing other photos that were submitted.

Also, if you want to see your cell phone photo up on this blog next week, it’s not too late to send some photos in.  Email photos to me at:

Cell Phone Photography!

Think of the last time you were out and about, and witnessed something you wanted to grab a picture of.

What was the first thing you grabbed?

I bet for a lot of people they took to their phones.

Cell phone photography has been on the rise in recent years as the smartphones have come out, and the convenience of a camera on the go was available.

Not only that but there have been some pretty amazing apps that have come out in the process (which I’ll be talking about some of my favorite Android Phone Apps next week!)

How often do you use your cell phone?  Do you have a favorite photo you’d like to share?  If so, please email me the photo to:

Whatever gets sent, I’d love to do a tribute post of you guys showing your best cell phone photography.

And, since it’s only fair I’ll show you some of mine right now:

Easy when out and about on a trip.  You grab your camera and instant upload to facebook or twitter or even your blog to share with friends and your fellow readers!

Great for when you’re out and about around town during that beautiful sunset moment =)

Or even when it comes time for showing off new haircuts 😉 Dorks, I know!

Somethings just look better coming from a cell phone~  😉 Sunset Blvd.

And sidewalk art always looks awesome with a cell phone.  Makes for some truly great captures!  =)

And sometimes its just fun to pull out when you get bored… 😉 Animals make for some good subjects.

And sometimes just the challenge of photographing with a cell phone and nothing else makes you think in an entirely new way altogether.

I hope you all enjoyed, and please email me at

I’d love to showcase your photos.  Please let me your name, and a brief description as to where the photo was taken when you send it my way.  Lets have fun with this =)

Next week I’ll be talking about my favorite Android Cell Phone Apps =)
