So what am I doing Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon-style today on the blog? I’m getting eye-level with my photog for the day. Yup, I handed over the camera to kiddo to do some shooting. Hey, a blogger’s gotta do what a blogger’s gotta do. I’ve been enlisting the help of my new tripod, but sometimes you just need a person and not a stick to do some shooting with, and enlisting a professional photog isn’t always an option. So today, that person was Milly. It’s funny but the other night at the First Street Fashion event I got into a convo with a few bloggers about photogs. The blogger mom, boyfriend, husband, next-door-neighbor gets the opportunity to tap into their inner photog, most times whether they like it or not, and a lot of them have found a hidden talent they may not have even known existed if their fashion partner in crime didn’t shove a camera in their hands. And for me, that go-to tends tends be kiddo. Sure she’s half my height and I have to slouch down over the camera and yell things like, “Can you see Mommy’s head and shoes at the same time?” but we have a good time. She gets really excited about the pics she takes. And she looks absolutely adorable wielding a camera. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself below.
