As a Craftsy Workshop instructor I have been working on a blog post.... for a while now that I wanted to insert myself into. I would rather pull a finger nail completely off while eating something my children had cooked, but I somehow talked myself into this idea one morning and ran with it.
After a couple of shots my daughter dramatically rolled her eyes and said, "Mom, can't you do something other then just, you know, look at me." "What else should I do?" I nervously inquired. "Put your hands on your hips," she commanded.
I was so grateful to find that she got 1 decent shot! Maybe next time I'll hire a professional? Who knows, maybe my independent 8 year old's composition will improve. At least it made for an entertaining afternoon!
(By the way, the shawl was my charming grandmother's. I Fancy Schmancy'd it up with a Pouting Princess fabric flower brooch!)
So, have you ever been daring enough to let your child be a photographer?
