Day 76 – Future Photographer

20 Jun

My nephew and I shot a wedding today and while I was at the reception I started to notice that I had a tiny blonde shadow. She first asked me how to take a photo with her disposable camera, then she came back to tell me that she had taken a picture of me taking pictures, then she wanted me to take a photo of her taking a picture and so on.

She was the cutest little thing and she kept tugging on my shirt to tell me what she was going to take her next photo of. I stopped her mom and told her that she might have a future photographer on her hands and told the little one to remind her mom and dad to get her a camera to play with. It is amazing to see something like that in a child so young. Without question she made my night!

    There’s nothing like seeing a kid WANT to learn. And there’s nothing like passing on a skill to a kid. You got to experience both in one day… lucky you 😉

      It was wonderful to see her so interested and she made my whole day.

      HEH, they will surely find out when they get their cameras developed

    Well, when I saw the title I figured this wasn’t about me. Heh. And as I read the blog, I was like “yeah, yeah, a cute kid …” But see, this is where a lot of your talent lies. You take a subject and a picture and you make something amazing and interesting out of it. Whatever it is you did to this one, it came out perfect!

    How awesome that you took the time to talk with her. She’s going to remember that, Mindy!

    What a great photo. Don’t you just want to see how her snapshots turned out? Especially the ones she took of you. Thanks for sharing.
