Pulling the back off polaroid film is one of my favorite things lately:) The kids all huddle around me and pass the still wet picture back and forth. Each taking a turn to giggle or critique the photo. I know they try to avoid finger prints but its inevitable really when little ones just can't wait to touch. Now Deacon carries his own camera on our adventures and I just adore the view of my little boy with pride in his eyes as he "works".  I'm touched to see how he mimics me even in the slightest. What a complement as well as a reminder that we are influencing our children daily. Its not just what we teach them but also what they see. How we act. To me that is a huge responsibility.
Polaroid film.

They look great! Nice work! I still need to find a Polaroid back for my current setup.
There are going to be a few of us getting together and shooting film this saturday. Let me know if you'd like to come along.

Oh i just adore these sweet kids. Deacon is so sweet with his camera. The time he so carefully directed Aidan as he took a shot of him in Lake Louise was so so adorable.

And I hear you on the responsibility. wow. it is huge. but you are taking it on so amazingly and it so very evident when I am around these sweet kids. xoxo

And as someone who watches you mother (probably more often than anyone other than Daylan) - you are a wonderful mother! World class. I am so very proud of you.

These kids are so sweet and so cute. Seeing them makes me happy. I check your blog everyday hoping to catch new pictures of them and when I do I look at them over and over.

Thanks for the amazing photography. Your art coupled with these kids makes these pretty awesome.

Thanks Eden.
