I'm a Sony Mom! #SonyMoms

I have been capturing my children's memories with Sony cameras since they were first born. Sure I have had other brands of cameras over the years, but I always keep navigating back to Sony. Why? Because they are awesome cameras, and I love capturing the best pictures of my children.

I recently got an exciting opportunity to become a Sony Mom. Yeah! What that means is that I will be testing out different Sony products over the next couple of months, and sharing my opinions with you. From televisions to computers, I will be experimenting with all divisions of Sony Electronics. 

Sony Building San Diego
About a week ago, they brought me (along with nine other fabulous photog loving moms) to San Diego to visit the Sony Headquarters. I was more than excited to see where all the magic happens, and it is truly a pretty cool place. They have a roof-top basketball court, relaxing fountains and inspirational quotes on the walls.

Our first mission is to review the Sony Cyber-shot TX20 camera. We first tested it out at the nearby San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Park. We got hands-on tutorials from the specialist on how to capture the best images using the Sony Cyber-shot TX20.

Since I have brought the camera home, I have been experimenting with it everyday. The settings on the camera have helped me to experiment with photography without being a "professional." I can easily create artistic photos with photoshop, capture underwater memories and do what I love best - video!

I'll be honest that I usually purchase a camera, leave it on auto, and never experiment with the different capabilities. I usually never even read the manual. The opportunity that Sony has given me has opened my eyes up to a new world of photography and capturing my children in a way that I will remember them forever.

Stay tuned for lots more creative pictures, and fun videos. You can also follow all the moms on Twitter under the hashtag #SonyMoms where we will be sharing our favorite moments captured using Sony cameras. Thank you Sony for this once in a lifetime opportunity! 

Disclosure: I am part of the Sony VIP Mom Blogger Program by Sony Electronics where a group of mom bloggers have been given the opportunity to test and review Sony gear. All my thoughts, photos and opinions are of my own.
