A budding Photographer?

My oldest has been using the camera.

A Lot!

I'll admit, I was a bit leery earlier this summer when Miss Eleven first started using the camera…..

What if she dropped it?

What if she left it outside?

And the daddy said "Let her have it….. she'll learn."

We've all had fun watching her photography progress. 

Yesterday while uploading photos from the camera, I came across her recent photo shoot. With her permission I am sharing them here. No editing…. these are all straight from the camera in the hands of an eleven year old girl…..

Just for fun….. here is a little interview with the mama and the photographer….

What do you like most about photography?

When you take a picture, it's like storing a memory.

What is your favorite thing to photograph?

People and plants.

What inspires you to take a picture of it, what do you look for when you take a picture?

Usually something pretty or cool and I want to remember it. Or just for fun.

What is this last picture about?

I want to make a newsletter for all my friends and I want to make an "About the Author" in a book I am writing, so I needed a picture of myself. My little sister took the picture. 

Anything else?

I like the picture of our shadows, it's my favorite one.

Thank you Miss Eleven 🙂

  1. I’m VERY impressed. Please tell Miss Eleven that the sun-flare she caught in two pictures is pretty hard to accomplish and that she caught them very well 🙂


  2. Great photos!! My fav is the top one of the flower ( cause ive done alot of those myself lol) Ive always wondered what kind of camera you use. It takes such clear pics. Also, have you guys thought about photography classes for miss 11? Im sure she would really enjoy it. Everyone i know who’s taken a class has loved it and has learned so much.
    Excellent job Miss 11!!!


  3. Awww, thanks 🙂 I am just happy to share another one of my hobbies with my girl! She’s all ready an antique junkie…. now photography too… it’s fun watching her try things out and figure out SHE loves….
