Paying it Forward

July 13, 2018  •  1 Comment

As anyone who knows my photography story understands, it was my maternal grandfather who developed my interest. Read my photography bio and you'll see how this happened.


Here’s everything my nephew received:


My nephew, Sean just celebrated his sixth birthday and I'd been thinking about what to get him when I realized that my old Canon PowerShot G2 sat around unused. I took the camera out before giving it to him and played with it to make sure it still performed. It does. And it takes some amazing pictures as well.  In fact some of the photos are currently on my website being sold regularly. 


I was excited to watch him with the G2.  Watching Sean experiment with brand new camera to him brought back some of the memories when my maternal grandfather gifted ME with MY first camera.  It was thrilling watching him run around with the camera around his neck and snapping pictures.  I can only hope he continues to be enamored with the art of picture taking.


This is a camera he can use and play with to see if he becomes an avid photographer like his Uncle Chris. I'm excited to see what he can do.  You may be thinking:

Six years old for a digital camera?


The way I look at it is Sean has that much longer to learn how to use the camera. And it only cost me twenty dollars to get a memory card and a new power charger for it. 


Maybe he will follow in his uncle's footsteps

Maybe he won't. 


That's beside the point. Just giving Sean the opportunity is what made me happy. 



In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.

At the very least, he will have some fun and learn some new facts.
