While trying to do the never-ending task of a mum & sort out the house for what feels like the millionth time I came across a whole heap of cameras I had been hording.
They all worked perfectly, but had been added to the pile as I got a new one so some were pretty old! After sorting through them and getting rid of the ones which were pretty useless I found one that wasn’t too bad and decided that I would let Amellia have it to see how she got on.
I must admit I did expect to have a camera full of totally rubbish pictures and yes of course there was a few odd ones.. I even have odd pictures on mine but I thought they would outweigh the good but they didn’t.
There was a lot of random selfies, rather a few only had half her head in.. but they made me smile and she loved looking back through them and telling me why she took the selfie and where is was.
Several of Dylan, because well.. she totally adores him.
A few of views and the sky from our walk& this one that completely melted my heart. I was completely unaware that she was taking this and only when we came home and were looking at them did I see it. Look at how happy Dylan is with that perfect wee smile he has, along with his smile I actually like this picture of myself too. Maybe it’s because you can’t see my face.. but I totally love this picture. One I wouldn’t have ever got if I didn’t give her a camera.
Along with these pictures there was also several long videos of her waffling to the camera about what she could see out the window, what she was making with air dry clay, discussing the weather (Her favourite topic) and just general chit-chat.
I think she is at the perfect age now to have a camera, it will teach her responsibility along with capturing some awesome memories. After she has been using it for a while I’m going to get her a wee photo album so she can print out the ones that mean something to her and she can then write a wee bit about them and keep them safe to look at whenever she wants.
I cant wait to see what other things she captures and will do another post in a while once she has been out with her camera again.
I have given her an Instagram account obviously on my phone and she will only use when beside me and i will monitor and all that jazz. But thought it would be perfect for her to get her pictures somewhere to look back at easily and write her own wee description! If you wanna see what she snaps in the future head over to it here and give her a follow!
