Eleanor, the Photographer

The winner of my Shutterfly giveaway has been randomly selected, and I’ll edit this post to announce the winner as soon as I have confirmation. Thanks for entering, everyone!

Now, since I showed you Eleanor in full cranky toddler mode, I thought it was only fair to show you this little outtake from the same photo session. She was much more into being the photographer than the subject that day.

That look of concentration! I love it.

p.s. Here were the Official Rules for the giveaway.

    Beautiful daughter. I like it when they (kids) want to do everything you do.

    This made me bust out laughing! My Little Guy, Liam does the same thing whenever I bring out the tripod. He really loves when the video camera is hooked up so he can see live action, but he loves cranking that handle around just the same.
    Too cute!

    My 3 year old daughter does the exact same thing. It’s interesting to see others with the same imagination.

    Cute!! I used to let my 2 1/2 yo push the button to do pics of us together with the timer, until she accidentally knocked over the tripod, oustside, on the cement patio, which smashed the lense to my Canon EOS :( I need to find a stand with nice thick legs like your tripod! (and a new camera) Love the monthly photo projects too BTW.

    I love this! My Emmaline has that same shirt. I love it on her with her skinny jeans and black ballet flats. It’s my favorite outfit and I want one just like it. :)
