Ever wonder what a kid is thinking? Ask them. They will usually tell you if you look like you are genuinely listening.
I have been giving my kiddo a camera since she was three years old. I learn so much about her from her photography. I learn about what she cares about, or who she cares about.
The beauty of the pictures is that if you make time she will sit down and tell you a story that goes with each one.
If you are a parent trying to connect with your child, don't give up....try a camera.
(According to Eden, a four year old at the time, this dear, sweet community of animals were having picture day. They had just experienced a move and were thankful that no one was left in a box or behind. They celebrated being a family and having each other. She claims they vowed to never forget their experience of the biggest change of their lives.)
