    "As soon as iPhones came out and we started taking pictures, I thought, I'm a photographer. So I started something called 'Iphoneys' at," she explained.

    "And it was photo sharing ... all my friends who were photographers would send me the picture, and I would upload it to my blogspot called Iphoneys," she continued.

    "It was before Instagram, and you can look at it because of the date ... it's still up there!" Jamie added.
