I love that I spend my life behind my camera.
However, you know those things called non-negotiables. Yea, future bf, hubby, baby daddy, willingness to click is one of those non-negotiables… or letting me teach you how use a camera works too 😉
Not too much to ask, right?!
On a daily basis I capture and fall in love with so many wonderful moments in my life and the lives of others. That is my favorite part of what I do… I take split second moments and make them last forever. Pretty sure that’s the coolest job ever, but maybe I am a wee bit biased hehe. But sometimes, like maybe once in a while, I wish I could jump in front of the camera and be forever in that moment too.
For now, my little 9-year old protege does the trick. On Monday I let her take my point and shoot and make it her own for the day.
Here is her perspective. From her 9-year old eye level, taking note of things she watches her Aly take note of like….. food… and people! duh.
These are my favorites.
Pictures of her dinner plate… A necessity.
Kitchen accessories …
All the yummy sides.
Sneaking pictures of me in my instagram glory.
pictures of all the beautiful colors that made their way onto our table…
and of course a little self portraiture.
and maybe I stole the camera once or twice …
how could I resist that. Sorry Uncle Joe, if she has a shoe habit it wasn’t allll my fault.
But I think she had the most fun during our trip to Chef Central. Endless photo – ops!
a coookey looking dough whisk had us pee our pants laughing…
and we stared at the jewel tone stand mixers for a few minutes too many, and I drooled over the metallic pink glass bowl varieties till I came back down to earth.
But the gifted goodies I chose were even more fab. Like the beater blade … The kitchen aid paddle that has spatula edges!!! Stop it … Can’t wait to try. Thanks Aunt Car and Uncle Joe.
Yet at the end of the day the cuteness award goes to the little one herself …
My future side kick in whatever path my life takes. She can be my photo assistant or my cuter than words sous chef.
Adorable. I tell her to never get bigger and so far her little self has listened … but it’s fun to think of what it will be like in 5 years, when she will actually be able to understand the workings of a camera, or even how to help me put together a recipe. The fun has only just begun ….
