A perfect Day With Nature~Part Two



As I mentioned Friday, we recently went on a fun family drive. Our mission was to find a new camping spot that would suit all our needs. I'm not certain we found it, but the process made for a fantastic day.

Sugar Bear brought along her camera, and it was a real treat to download her photos and see what moved her to press the shutter release. We are still working on holding the camera still, so there were plenty of blurry shots, but some were quite good. I'd love to share them with you all. The only editing I have done is a slight crop to make them a 4 by 6 photo. I am careful to leave it just as she took it.











You may recall from my first "Sugar Bear Snaps" post that I was a bit worried that once Sugar Bear got her hands on a camera, I would never get to photograph her without her trying to photograph me. Well........ummmmm......yeah......

Here is mine:



And here is her's:



But what the heck? At least we now have record of me actually being there. No one else ever takes pictures of me, but it looks like my Sugar has it covered. :) And she is feeling pretty good about it.

She did a great job! Y'all could be a mother/daughter photo team. I love that you've shared this with her. I may have to see what The Bean does with our camera.

Awesome job. I love the pictures. Looks like a ton of fun. I really love your posts. Sorry I have not been blogging lately! I have been taping shows which I am excited about because I was able to post them on my blog YAY!! If you get a chance to check it out, then let me know what you think. http://www.dishingwithdebbie.com The more feedback I get the better I can make the segments Also, your stories are great and my whole idea behind this show is for other moms to share real stories like you do. Sponsors are donating neat prizes like chocolate baskets and mini-chef aprons and way cool cookery stuff. Anyway, I’d love to hear from you.

Looks like Sugar Bear is going to be one heck of a photographer. I think it is cute that she takes after her mommy and thus you get to be "in the picture" as well. I love it.

Looks like Sugar is gonna take after her Momma in the photography department! Sounds like a super fun outing even if you didn't get many camera free pics of Sugar!

Like mother, like Sugar Bear!!!

Megan@SortaCrunchy said...

Oh, I LOVE the Sugar Bear Snaps!!! You are such a great mama - teaching her with such hands-on experiences. I bet she had a blast. Makes my heart so happy to see these!

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Hehe... great little post.

Mama Zen said...

I love the pictures! It just kills me that every kid has to do a nostril shot as soon as they get their hands on a camera!

JC said...

She sure is getting the hang of it! Terrific shots, tell Sugar Bear she has some fans!

Oh... your shots are pretty good, too ;-)

Lindy said...

love that Sugar is taking after her mama! I'm looking forward to doing the same w/ Squidge!

Megan (FriedOkra) said...

And she even took some shots at clever Mama-Corey angles. I'd say she's a ... well... natural! Hugs - M

tommie said...

She is doing a great job! (So glad you taught her to wrap the cord around her wrist.) I love the one of you with the sun rays.

fairytalesandmargaritas said...

Those pics are so sweet! She's a real pro!

Root & Sprout said...

HA! Love it! You should have those shots of the two of you taking pictures of each other framed and hang them side by side. :-)

Kimberly said...

Well, that's decided it. I know what we're doing this afternoon. =) Lovey shots!

Jenty said...

I also got that spam from that Debbie woman!! I hate that!

Sugar Bear is quite good with that camera! Wow!! And that last photo is just sooo adorable!

Carolyn said...

Awesome. Sugar Bear is a great photographer. And I love that she's taking photos of you too. I let Csilla loose with camera the other day. I'll have to post them soon, but I'm too vain to post any of her photos of me looking all scary in my ugly sweats. At least you look nice!! Great stuff. And thanks for your compliments about my latest PhotoHunt post. Means a lot coming from you.

Nap Warden said...

Go Sugar Bear...she's already taking better pics than me!

Beth said...

I love it when we get to see a picture of you!!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Corey those are so good.

And it is fantastic that there's someone to get pictures of you now.

Miss E did some interesting stuff with the camera at the weekend which I will blog tomorrow. She has her own style...

MamaGeek said...

OH how cute! She's a natural I can tell! Love that one of her holding the P&S!

CMB said...

Too cute! I love that she wants to be just like her Mommy. She takes nice photos.

Donetta said...

I just remembered to have the Mr down load Doves pictures. I/He gave her our old digital some time back. I have yet to down load .
Thanks for the reminder:)
How happy you look. I see that the country side is a live with spring.
They are looking at her down load in the other room now laughing and she is telling all about them.

eastcoastlife said...

Yes, she's doing a great job. She's going to be a good photographer like her Mommy.
Happy Mother's Day!

John-Michael said...

Captured and carried away is my Spirit on the wings of all that is released through these lovely images. Sugar Bear's Daddy is a Man, both blessed and envied!

Lovingly ...

Gayle said...

This looks like my Olivia (she's three). She's currently obsession with photography just about anything. Who knew taking 20 pictures of a pile of clothes would be so fun! :)Happy Clicking.

Carrie said...

What a great blog you have Corey! I'll be back to visit again. Thanks for stopping to visit my family of 4.

Don Mills Diva said...

Very cool - looks like you have the next Annie Leibowitz on your hands! (minus the skanky Hannah Montana pics)

we are reilly said...

Looks like SO much fun! Plus, Sugar got a picture of her dad's leg too -- it's good to include him in the photos too! :)

Mary Ann said...

Yay!!!! I LOVE Sugar snaps!!!! It is great to see you in photos Corey. The ones of you taking Sugar's picture while she is taking your picture, visa versa is great!

Childlife said...

Such a great little photographer! Just like Mommy! :)

holly said...
