I love taking photos. Just ask my friends, or look at my facebook and Instagram pages. I had a lovely camera too, until one of my friends dropped it in the tzatziki sauce at my birthday party, but that’s another story! Now, I have a flashless camera, two Polaroid cameras and the amazing camera on my new iPhone 8 Plus.
Perhaps I should add “a new camera” to my wishlist, and wait to see what happens on Christmas day? 🤔🤔🤔
There are so many magical moments to capture during the Christmas season. Below, I have included a list of the moments I would like to capture this Christmas. If you have any more ideas, feel free to share them in the comment section below!
