It’s Toddler Photography Friday!

We take lots of pictures around here, so it’s no surprise that our son’s Zack and Josh are obsessed with our camera. On several occasions they’ve stolen it and then proceeded to run around the house like crazed lunatics taking “Toddler Photography” photos of whatever captures their interest at the moment.

This is the picture that Josh took of me.

Each of them has a different technique. Josh loves to carefully aim and focus, and usually takes still-lifes or extreme close-ups of items around the house (and then laughs maniacally after he takes each picture). Zack does what we call “shotgun photography” holding the camera way out in front of him and snapping haphazardly at pretty much everything. We end up with tons of strange pictures, but on occasion he gets some really cool shots.

When Zack was 1 1/2 he climbed into his brother's baby swing and inadvertently took this self portrait looking in a convex mirror.

It’s interesting to see the world from their unique point of view. My kids are pretty prolific little photographers (they’ve taken over 200 pictures in the last month alone), so I thought it would be fun to share some of their “Toddler Photography” each Friday.

Josh decided the banana he dropped on the floor needed to be documented.

These pictures are taken by Zack and Josh themselves. I don’t tell the boys what to photograph and other than an occasional crop, I haven’t altered these photos in anyway.

Another shot by Zack, this time looking through his Lego house at his brother on the other side.
