Episode 207 - Camera Connector: A Conversation with Alethea Fitzpatrick
During our conversation we chat about:
- Why it’s ok to to approach photography with a ‘design mindset’ instead of a ‘fine art’ mindset and what that actually means.
- How Alethea bridged the transition from learning film photography first to mastering a DSLR camera after becoming a mom.
- The need of the creative to ‘make with their hands’ and how Alethea has transitioned that sentiment throughout her various creative projects.
- Alethea shares her tips for using a camera as a family connector and not a disruptor.

Episode 30: Connecting With Your Child Through Photography
Wanting to capture the moments and having those memories are only one part of the experience for Alethea. She has found that photographing her children has helped her get the most out of her experience as a parent, and it helped her be more present with her kids,
Alethea has noticed that parents struggle with taking photos of their kids, and it is like they are stuck between capturing the moment and experiencing the moment with their kids. Alethea loves to flip that around for parents so that the camera can bring you more into the moment, which allows you to be more present.
With today’s technology, most of us are carrying around a phone in our pockets. You may have not intentionally purchased your mobile device as a camera, but it is just one of the many benefits of your mobile device offers you.
One great takeaway that Alethea left us with, is the idea that you are looking for the moments, rather than trying to create them.
