Gemma and the twins are my little sidekicks and of course I take photos OF them all the time. They have all shown interest in taking photos of their own, and I have begun to teach them about light and composition (& unfortunately, the hard way, about formatting the memory card too.) As moms with cameras, often times we are all alone in our passion as our family starts to shy away from the lens. As frustrating as that may be it does not spell the end of photography’s relationship with your family, but rather a transformation. It can be your invitation to involve them. Teach them. My dad taught me and even though he passed away in 1999, my love of photography is a lingering connection to his spirit. I think of him when I pick up my camera and I always will. Pass your passion on down the line and best of all, have fun with your kids. That is how littleSIDEKLICK came about.
littleSIDEKLICK is a new photography project to get you shooting with your kids and I am thrilled to announce that Tamron Australia will be supporting us along the way. While things are still being prepared (there is a lot to this including guides and themes etc…), why don’t you introduce us to your very own littleSIDEKLICKs by using the #littlesideklick tag on Instagram. Jump on the emailing-list to be the first to know about the project when it goes live!
