I hab it Momma

For Christmas this year, one of my favorite gifts was a Canon Point and Shoot camera from my parents. For those of you who are not familiar with the term 'point and shoot' it is a digital camera that does not have interchangeable lenses, it doesn't weigh five pounds, and it fits it my coat pocket. I own a DSLR and that is what I use for my photography, but sometimes I just want to take something with me (like on the boat) that is a little easier to carry around. I loved this camera from the moment I saw it, unfortunately I wasn't the only one who experienced love at first sight.

Yeeep, she loved the camera and as soon as I took it out of the package, this little arm was reached out and all I heard was "I hab it, Momma". So what did I do. I let her have it. She was in heaven! She snapped photographs all morning, 87 to be exact. I had almost forgot I let her use the camera until I popped the memory card on my computer and saw her images. Her vantage points were low, the focus and white balance was off, but the photos tell a story; a story of Christmas morning from the eyes of a 2.5 year old. Perhaps I am a little biased, but I thought she did a great job, and what does every proud Mom do, they share the story! So here I present to you Christmas by Baby E.

First she starts off capturing the location, including Memere's new curtains.

A little lower we find the nativity scene, Christmas cards, and wait?!
What's that to the left?

Owwww, it's the most beautiful Santa baby on the planet.

Who rocked it out all morning.

Nice action sequence Baby E!

On to the Christmas tree... humm not quite in full frame...

Change locations and adjust the zoom and there you hab it!

Working the room and getting shots of people opening gifts.

Including close ups of the loot.

Then like a true professional, she worked the room photographing guests looking beautiful, overly excited to be there, and brushing off shoulders because that's how Mommy rolls on Christmas morning.

I am pretty sure she posed him, why else would he make that face - haha!

And then, with a quick rip of some Santa paper, 412 twisty ties later; baby Santa, the Christmas tree, and all the guests were no longer on the photographer's agenda.
I will spare you of the 52 photos that were taken of .... the twins!

In for the close up, or as I like to call it, the "Mommy Shot"

Getting those cute little toes on film.

Okay, I will spare you the rest, because literally there are 47 more pictures of these babies.

Pretty impressive right?! I laugh every time I look at them. For 2011 I did really well printing photographs and putting them into an album, I will have to print this series and include a little write up, because well... it's too funny not to and what a great memory these images will resurrect each time we look at them.

Happy Tuesday!
