Now that I’m the mother of an eight-month-old, I know why there are so few photos of me as a baby – the perfect picture is just so hard to capture, and in that pre-digital age, I’m sure most mums and dads just got frustrated and gave up.
I’m always singing the praises of digital cameras because I often have to take a hundred photos of my daughter just to get a good one. I do get plenty of the side of her head or her butt (as she rolls away just as I’m depressing the shutter).
So I love, love, love the idea behind the ShutterBuddy – a revolutionary new product that captures the attention of all babies so you can get a great picture easily and every time!.
Using the classic black and white chequered pattern that all babies go mental for, the ShutterBuddy fits almost every camera. All you have to do is fit it with a strap around your camera, adjust it to make sure the lens and flash is clear, call out to your little one and the rest is a done deal. No more having to act like the fifth member of the Wiggles just to get a front-on shot!
