The Story of Happy Snapping – Life Stories Series

This month’s Life Story is a fun one. We’ve been doing a few fun things during the summer and while I’ve been hauling my camera around to capture it all, my 4 year old has decided that she is keeper of my point and shoot. The other day I downloaded her photos and had a good chuckle at some of the things she took photos of. I’ve decided to share those as this month’s story.

So I leave you with the world through the eyes of a 4 year old that is Full. Of. Awesome. :)

What is it that these life stories are about, you might ask?

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy!

The next story in the circle belongs to the awesome Kate Craft. Be sure to see what story she has to tell this month!

    Love. She has a great eye, and not only that, appreciates this wonderful art!

    I love these. Not only the fact that she is taking after her mama but that she already has a creative eye! LOVE the dog through the screen (or whatever that first image is) and also the back half of the cat. It is all about the deTAILS, right? LOL.
