I've heard it's a lifestyle change, and you really don't see it as anything different when it's your child(ren). But just jumping into it for one entire day, really wore on me. She was so much fun, and I was constantly playing with her: from her barbies, to her tea set, to playing fetch with Harlee and her, and more. Non-stop from 6:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night.
But my favorite part of the weekend was when she wanted to take pictures. She saw me with my DSLR and wanted to try. Thankfully my husband and my brother-in-law (her daddy) bought me a Canon Rebel XS a couple years ago and I use it as my backup for weddings. I had her put it around her neck and show her where the button to press was. She immediately held it up to her eye and shot. From that first click, it was an instant bond. She loved it and numerous times we were out in the backyard taking pictures of Harlee's dog toys and the wild flowers. I am hoping to collect some of those images and share them with you all. She was pretty good for not even a 4 year old.
I had a family photo session this weekend too and she came along. The camera around her neck and always by my side. I think I've hired my first assistant.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know I sure did!
