I won't lie, I am a fan of the selfie. Almost daily I capture a photo if the kids and I together. The other day though I discovered an app which I think I'll use now and again to capture us doing life.
The app is called TimerCam and it allows you to use your iPhone camera on a timer. And it's free! You can easily alter the time to give you the chance to get back in frame.
What I love is that I can now capture moments from a different perspective like those shots above, without being obvious or distracting to the kids.
Have a try. I'd love to know if you like it.
