Through the Eyes of a Child

The world as seen though children's photos

Looking at the world through the eyes of a child, you are exposed to the unique viewpoints they often have of their world—which can be vastly different from the way adults see their world.

Viewing the things that are important to our children through their photographs can be eye opening—from favorite teddy bears or dolls to siblings and pets—we can learn so much. Selfies (self-portraits) and pictures of sisters and brothers, photos of pets and the world around them, photos taken by children show their personalities shining through.

With the arrival of Spring (on March 20), and the warmer temperatures that the season brings, it's a great time to go outside with your kids to photograph the world around them. Helping a child explore their world through photography is a wonderful idea.

"Selfies" (This is me)
