The Newest, and Youngest Photographer in the Family — 16 Comments

  1. Passing down the love, the thrill of capturing the world. You are a good auntie!

    I think she is going to love your Christmas book, Mary! OH! And thank you for getting back to me about your technique to capture the moon!

  2. That is wonderful and to get started on it so young, she will have a hobby for her lifetime. Mom used to take photos all the time as a kid, with old cameras her parents would give her when they got new ones. It was the film age, so practicing was expensive. These days it is so much easier to learn and less expensive! Have fun!

    • Learning with film would be way harder. On the other hand, it makes you think more about what you’re shooting. I did warn her parents though, it can still get expensive. Lol

  3. That’s awesome. I gave my daughter one of my old bridge cameras and determined she has better creative vision than I do, which I’m totally excited about. Love seeing the next generation embrace their creatively. I’m sure the two of you will always share a special bond.

    • But I’m sure you had something to do with her creative vision in the first place. She took what you taught her, and placed her own twist on it.

  4. Abigail is also lucky to have an aunt like you, encouraging her and helping her out with what might be a budding career. She couldn’t have a better teacher! :)

  5. What a wonderful story! Abigail will love that gift for a long time. I bet that you have a special relationship with her! My nephew and I have bonded over drones :) My brother jokes that I may be the coolest aunt ever! Our case is different from yours because I think that I’ve learned more from my nephew than he has from me!

  6. That’s so nice that you have such a close bond with her, and now a shared love of photography. I’m sure she’ll treasure the gift of your camera and all the time you’ve spent out taking photos with her.

  7. I loved your post which reminded me of my granddaughter and her first camera. Sadly she didn’t take to it as your niece has but one never knows, she may later tap into it! Loved your hornet’s nest with the leaf!!

  8. So lovely that the two of you are now sharing photography. A special connection for sure, as was the beginning of life with your there.

    PS. mouse or vole….. is my guess.

  9. Hello, it is wonderful to have your niece take up photography. I am sure you will show her some tips. She is pretty young lady. Enjoy your day and week ahead!
