Cameras moms love

The mamarazzi mom. You know her. She’s the one with the camera around her neck, wrist or in her purse, always poised to capture the poignant—and not so poignant—moments of her kid’s life. Her Facebook profile is exploding with albums titled “Baby’s First Steps,” “Baby’s First Drool,” “Random Pictures of Baby from November 9th at 2pm” and “Random Pictures of Baby from November 9th at 2:08pm.” If there's one thing the mamarazzi know, it's cameras. Here, we cover the favorite cameras used by the mamarazzi.

Be honest, you probably know the mamarazzi mom so well because you are her. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a mom who wasn't a card-carrying member of the Mamarazzi Club. There's just something that clicks when you become a mom that makes you a little more inclined to capture memories and be a whole lot more camera happy. So if you're going to be taking the pictures, you might as well be outfitted with the best mamarazzi tools out there. Here are some of SheKnows.com's favorite cameras for mommies.

This camera isn't cheap, but compared to other similar products, it's pretty wallet friendly. It's small and light considering its megapixel power, which will make your diaper bags and purses a little easier on your shoulders, and the auto-focus on this camera is mighty quick. That's great for when your little one is on the run and not so happy about being your model. Also, this camera delivers amazing video quality that's comparable, if not better than, your average camcorder.

This camera is super small and slim, which makes it easy to slip into the cell phone pockets of purses for easy access. The zoom packs a punch on this one and the large back screen makes snapping the perfect picture easy. Also, it has in-camera editing functions, which is great for moms who aren't in front of a computer most of the day.

This is a budget camera and would be a great knock around piece to take on a vacation where you'll be more busy having fun than taking care of your equipment. It's a simple point and shoot, but it does come in a variety of bold color choices. And cute counts in the mamarazzi world.

Even the most dedicated mamarazzi member leaves her camera at home every now and then, so it's always smart to have back-up photo options. Invest in a cell phone with a quality camera. The Droid Incredible not only has an 8-megapixel camera, but a flash as well. The pictures come out with clear colors and sharp details. Once you load them onto your computer, you'll barely know they were from your back-up camera.

Let's be honest, the real thrill of being part of the mamarazzi isn't taking the pictures, it's sharing them. And this portable digital picture frame does just that. It comes with a durable carrying case so you can bring it anywhere. Plus, this makes a wonderful gift for any grandmamarazzi you know. It can replace her overstuffed wallet of crinkly pictures.

That's all we've got, Mamarazzi Mamas. Go forth and point, shoot and snap your kids until they refuse to smile.
