I was working the other day on taking some photos for yesterday’s post, when I realized that I needed a picture of myself. And instead of going through the trouble of going inside, digging out the tripod, setting it up, etc etc etc. I decided to utilize my five year old instead.
Abigail has always been a great helper when I ask her to take a picture with my phone. She is also really good about being gentle with things. She isn’t a destructive kid so I didn’t have to worry about her being rough(though I did make sure she always utilized the camera strap!) After we got the pictures I needed for my post, she asked if she could take some more pictures around the yard. Which I was happy to let her do!
Here are a few of the things her little eyes captured 🙂
I love seeing her perspective on things and I am incredibly impressed at how many photos she managed to capture that are lovely, in focus, and unique! After giving her a preliminary lesson on using my camera, I can’t wait to teach her more and more. She absolutely loved it and was so excited that I let her do such a big girl thing.
So cheers to letting go and allowing our kids to try something new and exciting- it might just become their great passion. Who knows??
