Our budding photographer

The other day I took a little leap of trust and placed my precious camera in the hands of my insistent 4 year old - strap carefully round her neck and firm instructions not to touch the lens. I took a deep breath and turned away (pretending not to supervise), leaving an excited Isabella clicking  away like a veritable David Bailey, complete with photographer body positions (picture this little one, twisting and turning herself to get just the right angle for her pictures).

I am glad I trusted. It was a delight watching her discovering this new way of seeing and capturing the world. Every minute or so she ran over to me excitedly, saying "look mummy, look!" at the latest picture in the viewfinder. It left me with a big grin on my face and a few extra pictures, slightly blurry (arty, no?) on my computer. Here they are - what do you think?




  • I bet she was so excited, it is really nice to give the kiddos opportunities like this. I love her photographs.

  • She did great! love the foot and the flowers. My son does the same thing all of the time. I have tons of his pics. We have been printing some out and he keeps them in an album. It is so great to watch them go to work and then to see the pics. The world from their height and eyes. Great!

  • I think these are a triumph! What brilliant idea..I had a friend you let his 6 year old nephew be the official photographer at his wedding...the result was amazing! A few too many foot shots but some winners!
