I love Lila's photography. She has a wonderful eye and I think those self portraits are purposeful, you should see some of my daughter's shots. I love that you gave her a camera and the freedom to learn her own style, I cannot wait to see more.


That is awesome. I first gave my point and shoot camera to my son when he was about 2 years old (almost 2 years ago). He loves to take pictures and I love to see what he sees, the things that he thinks are worth paying attention to. Some of his pictures are really wonderful.

I usually let him take the camera off for a photoshoot and then I come back and edit. But I don't really post his pictures. Maybe I should start doing that.

I like your grant proposal. As someone who is an artist, a mom and a sometimes art teacher, it sounds fascinating.

I would love to see some of your daughter's shots. Do you have any online?

I'd love to see some of his photos too! Perhaps the two of you would like to do some sort of piece for this upcoming gallery space of mine?

Let me know if that appeals, and we can talk more about it.


I think the proposal is an awesome idea. I have seen many teachers give kids cameras and let them go at it, and they come up with very interesting pictures. My son loves to take pictures, I'm going to hand off my point-and-shoot to him this summer so he could have his first camera. And I really like Lila's pictures, she really picks interesting subjects and frames them like a pro.

Leigh,Good Evening,
I wish you luck on finishing the proposal.
Have a safe and pleasant trip to the USA.
Hope all is well with your father.


Hi Leigh,
This is a wonderful project. Your daughter has a great "eye"...and I'm looking forward to more pictures!!

WBSD is almost here! Please visit http://sheroffthebeatenpath.blogspot.com for updates and the link list.

This should be a fun one with the theme of food! Can’t wait to see what the posts will be like on Saturday!

Have a great day,

Hey Leigh,

Lila's pictures are wonderful! It's great that she has a camera and is allowed to explore the world. You are allowing her to discover her artistic side and develop a love for photos and hopefully the world, however she may see it.

I believe all parents should do this or something similar. Now-a-days parents forget about letting their children explore and discover themselves. They are too worried about them obtaining a college degree and a professional job that they forget that children need to be free and be allowed to explore. Not everyone’s future is in the corporate world, some of us are meant to be artists or musicians.

By giving Lila her very own camera you are opening up future paths that she may have never discovered. I’m sure Lila will grow up being well aware of her talents and will always follow her dreams wherever they may take her.
