Taking photos is and always has been one of my favorite things! Even when I was young I always had disposable and polaroid cameras and taped all my prints to my walls. This is a picture of my makeup collection as a 12-year-old (mostly glitters and lip glosses) and I always had my pictures hung on all my furniture like this!!! That is how this blog started in the first place. I needed a place to put my photos so my family could see them while I was traveling alone. Now with digital cameras and iPhones we had hard drives FILLED with endless photos. It is overwhelming how many we have and I am sure all of you feel the same with your phones and have a bajillion pics! I haven’t been as good at printing them since we have moved so often and nothing ever really felt permanent. Aura sent us one of their smart frames to try and we loved it. Aura is a smart picture frame and app that will let you see photos from your camera roll – sending the best pictures from your phone to your frame. The other part that we LOVE is that you can gift the frame and send your own photos to that frame. David’s parent’s live in Patagonia, Argentina. They have been there for a year and will be there for another year so we got them a frame and we are having the family (David’s siblings) all contribute photos to their frame using the Family Share feature.

How Aura Works:
· Download the free app and let Aura sort through your photos; recognizing the friends + family who you take photos of most often. It also weeds out any that can’t be cropped to fit the frame’s orientation, are too dark/bright, or are blurry! · Plug Aura in and connect it to Wi-Fi
· Select the people you would like to see photos of in your home

We have loved ours and Atticus always loves to sit and watch the photos change 🙂 Sometimes I like to email photos to myself from our big camera and save those to my camera roll so those can be included as well!

If you want one as well, use the code, BAREFOOT20, at checkout for 20% off. The code is valid until 10/28/16 at 11:59pm est!

Have a good day!!!!! Thanks for reading!

  1. This is perfect! I was looking for a picture frame to display all my favorite photos of my hubby and my little baby! Love this!

  2. This is so awesome. I am looking at different options to display pictures. Since we take so many, I feel like so many get lost in the cracks, which makes me sad! Also, this is a great gift for grandparents. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. SO CUTE! I have a little girl too and would love to know where you got Rosie’s pants from!? Adorable!

    1. I came here to the comments wondering the same thing 🙂 must know about these boots! 🙂

  4. Gorgeous pictures! Love the one of your little ones both giggling together – can’t wait til my two (18 months between them and the second is only two weeks old!) are big enough to play like this!

  5. That’s amazing that David’s parents are in Patagonia! Work or leisure? We’re in Brazil for the next four years and I’m dying to visit Argentina before we leave.

  6. That pic of you as a 12 year old is amazing! You are such a cutie. With your code, I think I must get one for my in-laws for Christmas as well. Thank you!! Also, love your casual chic outfit in this. Where are the kids rompers that they were in today on your snapchat? The deer ones? So cute! Just love you, Amber.

  7. Love your pics so much, Atticus and Rosie and the cutest things in the world! I aspire to be just like you 🙂 p.s. LOVE your lipstick color!

  8. Oh my goodness, Amber!! Your family is precious and your photographs highlight that SO well. I always enjoy seeing your posts on here and on Instagram. What do you use to edit your photos?

  9. Aura is such a great idea, I will definitely look into it! I’m the same with the polaroids, my walls are completely covered, because I don’t have a phone! I love the look of polaroids though. Love Rosie’s skirt in these pictures, you all look so cute xxxxx

  10. I love this, you all look so happy! Your boots are amazing!! Where are they from?

  11. If you love lifestyle related content as well as travel, visit she has great reviews for bloggers!

  12. What a neat idea! I love that and very convenient. Great pictures as well those little smiles are to die for!

  13. That frame looks awesome! This is kind of unrelated, but what are your tips for applying makeup when having your picture taken? Do you apply more than you normally would? If so, what do you apply more of (blush, eyeliner, lipstick, etc)? I’m having family pictures taken soon and I always end up looking like I have on zero makeup in pictures. Thanks!

  14. You’re so carefree and happy and your family is gorgeous! Such an inspiration 🙂

  15. So fun! Yes, it can totally be overwhelming with the number of photos! I create a photobook every year and print it out 🙂 That way everything is all nicely kept together!

  16. Wait, this is amazing! I am totally the same way – I am all about photos! But because I don’t have a permanent place right now it is so difficult to constantly print out + place new photos. Love love this! I am def going to try it. Have a great weekend! xx

  17. Love this idea, and would make a great gift, and thanks for the promo code Amber, but it is still way to expensive for us 🙁

  18. That’s such an amazing photo frame! I always wondered how you managed to choose between all your lovely photos and which ones to print out for display!

  19. I love your outfit in this post, can you let us know where everything is from?!!?

  20. Hi Amber,

    You didn’t link the photo of your 12-year old makeup collection!! Love reading your blog and seeing little glimpses into your everyday life 🙂
