My Budding Photographer

As I'm sure you all already know, I'm one of those Instagram moms.  I know, I know, Instagram is supposed to be for hipsters to take close-up pictures of decaying architecture and cool thrift store finds, but, not being a hipster, I like to use it to share pictures of my kids and food.  Housewife Instagram users are in the minority, but we're a strong minority.

Since my phone is with me everywhere I go, I find I take a lot of pictures, mostly of my kids, as I said, or of my kids and husband, or whatever.  I don't have a lot of pictures of me, though, because I'm the one behind the camera.  Since my 5 year-old loves to play on my phone, about a week ago I had the bright idea of letting him take pictures of me.

He's actually hilarious.  He points the camera in my general direction, and yells "click, click, click...!" as fast as he can, while pushing the button as fast as he can.  So, after 30 seconds, I have 50 pictures or so, and out of those, I find one or two that aren't fuzzy and upload them to Instagram.  So, here are a few he's taken recently:

And my favorite...

So, there.  Photographic evidence I exist.

I was just thinking, wouldn't it be funny if Sam wound up being a wedding photographer?  "Can we get just the bride with her bridesmaids?  CLICK click click click! Now, the whole wedding party?  Click click click...."
