Do you bring your camera with you on hikes with you baby?

I know that I love bringing my camera with me when I go on hikes alone. I love taking pictures of nature and the outdoors. When my son is with me though I feel like I take more pictures of him then anything else and absolutely love it. I feel like having him with me makes the experience even better. I feel like I get into it more and appreciate everything I see more. Like seeing things for the first time just like my little one does. Do any of you bring your camera along? If so what is your favorite subject to shoot on you hike?

We took our baby girl for her frist hike when she was about 5 months old. Hickory Run in the Poconos. Great/not too intense trail. We got great pics and it was n awesome day. After returning home at the end of our weeknd I remembered to upload one of my favorite pics (Daddy & emma by the waterfall ♥ ) to our digital picture frame. I proceeded to put it back in my camera to review them and I accidentally erased the whole memory card! I was devestated but at lest one of my favs can be on the digital frame forever! Point is always bring your camera on hikes!!!

I have only recently started taking my camera. I tend to take animal pics. If the scenery is great I take that too but it never looks as good on a photo. I love hiking!

We take our camera everywhere...I would say we take more picture of our kids on hikes than the scenery but there are a fair amount of awesome scenery pics too...

LOL... we brought our camera to a new set of waterfalls and DROPPED it. As the hubby and I were handing off the camera it fell down roughly 20 ft of rockface into the depths of the bottom of the falls... all I can say to this is have a GOOD strap!! LOL!!!! ;D
