Last fall, my girls and I decided to do a photo-journal project for school. I used my new camera; my oldest used the little point and shoot that she got for her birthday; and my youngest used my very first digital camera. She felt like she got the short end of the stick with my ancient Kodak Easy Share that I’ve taken a million pictures on over the years. And, she was pretty irritated that she didn’t have a more ‘professional’ camera. But after I *explained* to her that she’s 7, she realized she could be satisfied with what she had.
We had so much fun with that project that it started a ‘thing’ in our house. Now, we take pictures of every season and when we can finally agree on what to do with the best images, we’ll have something really amazing that we’ve done together.
These are some of my favorite shots from our original fall session – some are mine and some are the girls’. But all of them The Farm Mama’s view of the world.
Could you tell which photos had been taken whom? I’ll give you a hint … The girls like to take pictures of the dog. They claim she is the most adorable and perfect subject ever. lol
Like I said, we had an amazing time putting together this fall photo journal. With four kids, a business, a working ranch, homeschooling, husband-ing – sometimes I feel like I don’t get to spend enough time with my kids, individually. And even though I was with my two girls, it was a very special time for us.
I want to encourage you to get out there and find your own view! It doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have. Just do it! And, better yet, take along someone you love and get to see the world through their eyes, too.
