Now that DSLRs are ubiquitous, many of us are wondering how to lug our camera and lens(es) to the zoo, birthday parties, and even Starbucks, in hopes of capturing memorable moments of our kiddos in action. If you are like me, you've probably got a diaper bag and often a purse already, and the last thing you want is to carry a ginormous black camera bag that screams, "Look at my photography gear!" At least, that's how I feel. I've spent a little time doing the research online, and thought I'd share my findings with you:

Inserts for a purse or any other handbag is a good option. Several offerings can be found on etsy:
or on Amazon:
