She was born in Canterlot and lived for the first few months of her life in an apartment near Fashion Pose Photo Studio with her mother, Photo Finish, and her father, Snapshot.
Photo Finish and Snapshot argued often and then divorced, and Snapshot brought Camera Flash to Ponyville where they worked at Carousel Boutique and boarded there until they earned enough money to start Snap Studio, and they moved there.
She doesn't see her mother very often. She sees her once a month every summer and every other Hearth's Warming Eve. Photo Finish annoys her as she is always snapping at her.
She loves her father very much and prefers living in Ponyville than in Canterlot with Photo Finish. When she was younger, she would follow him everywhere.
Camera Flash, Twinkle Belle, and Starburst are best friends. They hang out quite often and have a lot of fun together.
