When You Give a Kid a Camera

I take LOTS of pictures of my boys. I know nothing about lighting or lenses or shutter speed so my pictures are not great. But I do document everything that we do and that's my main goal.

Aiden is very used to seeing me with a camera in my hand and he has always been interested in playing with the camera. At first he would just push the buttons on the camera and get random images. But it looks like he's finally chosen a subject!

He said, "Mommy, Can I use the camera to take Holden's picture?" This is what he captured:











Are we done yet???

I'm like you with my camera- I just keep it on automatic and document everything. I figure that's better than nothing!

My kids have definitely become little paparazzi themselves :)

And hey, the more you shoot the better your pictures will get. I am self taught through books, on-line tutorials and just taking a lot of pictures :)

We got my daughter the VTech camera when she was about 4 years old. For months she followed me around the house snapping my photo every few minutes. Now I know how celebrities feel!

Cute! My kids LOVE it when I let them play with our little point and shoot. It keeps them happy for as long as they have it. And every once in a while I don't even know that they have it but find a hundred silly pictures on the camera later!
