Choosing the right camera and accessories for your beginner photography journey can be very overwhelming. I was one of those moms who took pictures with just an iPhone, but wanted to take it to another level.

After lots of research and joining supportive Facebook groups for beginner photographers, I finally found my dream camera. It doesn’t stop there though, you will need accessories to help you make your photography journey a success. Whether this is for your hobby or you are starting a business these affordable yet very effective photography accessories will help you become successful.

I own a Canon Rebel T7 2000D. Some of the accessories that I am going to share are specifically for my model camera but please know that you can still get it for your model as well whether it is a Canon or Nikon.

  • Camera Bag
This waterproof bag by S-ZONE is the perfect size and fits everything you need including an extra lens. I love that it does not shout ‘camera bag’ and overall looks like a fashionable cross-body instead.
  • Tripod
If you want to join in the photos with your little ones and no one is around to take you picture, this is a great option. This tripod folds up easily and is lightweight for you to travel with if needed.
  • Mini Photo Studio Box
This little accessory is so affordable there is no reason for you not to have it! The lighting is fantastic and has an opening on top you get an accurate bird eye view photo if you choose.
  • Scarf Camera Strap
At just $7 bucks this fashionable scarf strap is stylish and comfortable. Its lightweight and soft fabric will let you wear your camera around your neck all day long.
  • Wireless Remote
A wireless remote gives you the freedom to get the action shot you would not be able to obtain while holding a camera. It’s hard for your little ones to stay still so this is very helpful plus another reason to get you in the picture as well!
  • Ring Light
Lighting is very important when it comes to photography. This traveling light ring is perfect for indoors that do not have the best natural light.
  • Backdrop
This basic backdrop is great for any occasion and is a great alternative if you do not have a light background to take pictures. Add accessories such as plants, garland balloons etc for occasion!
  • 50 mm f/1.8 STM Lens
If you are going to get an extra lens, this is the one. This lens is great for portraits with clear close ups and the background blurred with the auto focus feature.
  • Mamarazzi Tee
If you’re going to shoot, you might as well do it in style. you have everything you need now to be fully prepared for pictures with your little ones so why not do it in style?
  • ‘Mom’s Gonna Snap’ Coffee Mug
You know you can’t take great photos of your kiddos without a giant mug of coffee! Drink up mama and enjoy!

You never stop learning about photography, there is always something new to learn but having the basics helps you in the right direction. The more you learn the more confidence you have with your camera and the more confidence you have better photographs are taken.
