We had a day with some particularly beautiful weather last week and spent all afternoon outside playing in our backyard. I had snapped a couple pictures of the girls when Abigail asked me if she could take some pictures too?
I nervously gave her my phone, because, with a five year old you can pretty much be guaranteed to have a phone with no memory left returned to you.
But instead, she surprised me! She took a few intentional pictures of various things around the backyard and I thought it would be fun to get a little glimpse into things from her perspective.
She walked around happily snapping away, capturing exactly what she intended to. Just like my girl.
I’m so not a fan of this picture, but I figured it’s probably one of those that when I’m dead and gone someday she’ll look back at it and be like, “THAT’S what my Mom always looked like!” lol, so I left it.
I love her last little one of her own shadow! SO cute!
I’m always reminded of how much she loves to be “big” whenever I give her the chance. Whether it is cooking in the kitchen, taking pictures on my camera, or trying to keep up a conversation with the adults- when I take the time to let her do big kid things, it makes her feel so special and loved. I need to do things like this more.
Do you ever let your kiddos take photos? What do they take pictures of?
