i’m not sure if you remember, but last year around the holidays, i gave samson and eleanor each their own disposable cameras. we taught them how to turn on the flash and press “click” and then i encouraged them to take them with them whenever they’d like, and take pictures of anything they wanted to remember or anything that made them feel something. you can see their first photos here from when we got the film developed last time. honestly, i just love that batch of photos so much. they had the best time snapping away and i know as their mother i am completely swayed and biased and everything else that comes with that territory, but i thought there were a lot of beautiful shots there.
we did it again at the beginning of summer and just got around to developing their film. it’s always a lot of fun when we get the film back. besides a few black photos, most turn out so well! and so very artistic. ;) in addition to having the photo lab put them on a CD for me, i have them print out all the photos so the kids can physically hold them, and have them, and save them.
here are a few from the latest batch….
^^^oh the feet photos! the feet photos are the greatest!^^^
^^^store window reflections like a boss.^^^
^^^and several on the latest roll of pointing to this crab in the sand from a day at the beach last month!^^^
^^^it’s so fascinating to see what they “see” while they’re in their stroller snapping pics as we’re on the go.^^^
^^^ just showing off a little leg in the stroller. lol! ^^^
^^^these two shots up top! i mean….^^^
^^^and this one!^^^
^^^probably my favorite shot E must have taken of samson scooting down the street after soccer practice. ^^^
i’m so grateful for the invention of film because photos mean the world to me. also, being their mama has to be the greatest gig on earth. i love them.
