Busy, Busy, Busy Bee

That’s me. Way too busy to really tell you much more. Here is my blog entry for March. I’m so bad. ;)

If You Give Your Kid a Camera…

Monday, December 3rd, 2007
Ever read those books by Laura Numeroff–”If You Give a Pig a Pancake,” or “a Mouse a Cookie?” The characters ask for more and more and get into so much trouble and mess. It’s the same way if you give your toddler a camera.

We got one of those indestructible kid digital cameras from Fisher Price for my daughter’s 3-year birthday. Of course she loves it. She always wants to mess with my camera and equipment so she was so thrilled to get something of her own. I highly recommend it for those of you who take lots of photos and has a kid who wants to do the same. They really are indestructible if you drop them, and they also withstand countless hours of chewing and drool from the baby. The flash is a little bright, but it’s still pretty cool. Plus, it’s never to early to encourage a young photographer’s eye.

It’s so weird how she gets really creative with it. Seems she’s into shooting abstract, art-type things. I’m so proud! (sniffle.) See for yourself.

Her feet in the car.

Her feet at home.

Love this one…What art! The baby gate. ;)

And my all-time favorite…portrait of big sister in pajamas with lovey blankie by her side. (Those are the 3-year-old’s blankies, not the teenager’s.)

I also recommend the Barbie Baby Photographer doll for girls. Wow! They think of everything. It has so much detail, it’s crazy. A surefire hit from Santa. Now what are you waiting for? Go out and get you one!

Little Ballerinas

Friday, July 27th, 2007

Well, the summer session for toddler dance has finally ended. Em had so much fun and it was great meeting all of the moms. I shot a few images of the final class. Not really a recital, but we got to watch. Of course my kid was the one that was just sitting there. Go figure. See you guys in the fall!

To view the entire album larger and order photos, click the circle logo in the bottom right hand of the screen, then click on the name of the album, Claire’s School of Dance. Enjoy.

Dance Class

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

I videotaped Em’s dance class. What an undertaking video editing can be! I think I’ll stick with stills.

Part 1: Stretching–Em’s the one wearing pink in the front with pigtails. Harlow is in black on the left.

Part 2: Warming Up…my favorite part

Part 3: Solo Performances

Part 4: Group Dance

Part 5: End of class and getting stickers for a job well done. The idea is that each child takes turns jumping over the carpet squares to receive their stickers. Apparently this is a challenge for a toddler.

If you would like a copy of the full video, please contact me.

Old School

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Woo! It’s been a while since I posted anything here. It’s been ridiculously busy. I was going through some old files and came across this long forgotten video of Em when she was only a year old. Its really funny. I was trying to get her to point to her eyes and nose. She was watching herself on the video camera while taping.

I hope you get a kick out of it.
