They Grow Up So Fast

When I take photographs of my twins, I'm documenting their development right alongside their cute antics.

Lately, though, there's been photographic documentation of development of a different sort. My babies love the camera. I have an older digital point and shoot, so I let them use it at will. And they use it every day.  In the past two weeks, they've gone from sticking the lens in their eyes and screaming cheese, to figuring out where the button to click an actual picture is and how to press it, to actually taking pictures of things they find interesting for whatever reason. It's been an amazing transformation.

And they've taken some really interesting shots of things around our house. Here are just a few of the better / more lucky shots. I call this first collection "A Study of Bicycles."

There are many more objects that caught their attention. Like our table lamp, their morning fruit spread, my keyboard, and me!

That's definitely my best angle!

Anyway, it's costing us an arm and a leg in batteries, but I really love being able to see them learn and teach themselves to do something they enjoy. They don't need me to document their growth anymore. They can do it themselves!

  1. 2 words: rechargeable batteries.

    Good for the environment AND your budget!

  2. Hoho step ASIDE Ansel Adams.

    Perhaps you can invest in a cheap point-and-shoot that charges by USB for America's next photography masters to conserve on AA batteries.

  3. It looks like they're having fun taking pictures!
