    TIP #3 | Listen

    Listen to your inner voice. Does it say to put the camera down? Does it say you need more of less content (more/less words, more/less photos). Be respectful and trust that inner voice.

    Listening is also critical for discovering stories that might be important to you. I'm always overhearing things my kids say and jotting those bits down on journaling cards.

    I also listen for patterns. Things they are saying, things I'm saying, etc.

    Sometimes I use the notes app on my iPhone to jot down things I want to remember. Or an even quicker way is to use the voice recorder! My phone is always with me, so easy to grab and record.

    I did the December daily in 2011 for the first time and it was the first time that I actually asked people to take photos with me in them.

    I still take the majority of the pictures but I have been working on making sure that I am in some of them.

    I think a good way of doing that is that I handed my camera to Mike at Christmas and said ... righto, you have the next 2 minutes, take whatever you want. It was interesting to see his view of the moment too, which included me in it as well. Okay so photos of my backside don't count !!

    I need to take pics of my girls doing everyday things - not posing.

    Love the patterns idea!

    The most important thing for me to remember to BALANCE. Balance between the everyday pictures of my girls and also some posing, Balance between observing and participating, Balance between documenting everything or documenting nothing.....
    I agree about the importance of writing down some things in the moment....sometimes I'll wait til I journal at the end of the day and then all those little nuggets of conversations with my kids are gone by then!

    I love the idea of including and asking for other's perspectives on stories - both with the camera and with words.

    This is why I taught my hubby to use the "big" camera But, I have actually taken far less photos at events. I try to get enough to include the people, mood and activities but then I put my camera away.

    Listening and trusting your inner voice is so important! You can't go wrong - for me, if I stop and listen it works every time!

    I've also been trying to be more present in my photos. I think that is so important! But I also like Limequila's idea too, of just writing. they will appreciate the stories.

    I really want to start thinking 'outside of the box' with my digi-scrapping... I want to get more creative so my layouts have more of a 'WOW' factor...

    TIP #4 | Become seamless.

    My goal is to not have my camera, or the fact that I'm documenting a moment, get in the way or be a distraction. When it gets distracting (for myself or others) I put it down and I'll try again in a bit. I don't nag with my camera, I capture things as they are happening and every once in awhile I'll ask my kids to look at me if I want a specific photo of them looking at the camera.

    I'll have to try that. I think I'm a camera nag.. the Mammarazzi type.
