Eden (aged 5) captures Vietnam & Cambodia

Prior to Eden’s first day of kindergarten we asked her what she wanted to be when she got older, she gave us her honest answer; either a paleontologist (or in her words someone who digs up dinosaur bones) or an artist!  We love both these answers, and right now we aren’t too concerned about what she decides on.

Eden definitely loves all things art and she spends a good amount of time coming up with masterpieces every day and allowing Eden to create (and Clio too) is something that we encourage.  Whether that be a cupboard stocked full of supplies from paint to crayons which she has access to whenever she wants or a camera to capture moments!

On our travels around Vietnam & Cambodia, like on other trips, she had her own camera to take photos of whatever she wanted, I love getting to look at them to see what has caught her eye!


Eden actually didn’t take this photo, but it was one of few family pictures we got!

  1. I love Eden’s pics because it’s the only time i get to see you in pics! Ha! I absolutely love this idea 🙂

  2. She takes surprisingly good pictures. My 6 year old is getting better, but she tends to still take odd ones. She really likes to keep snapping as I’m telling her to stop and walking towards her.

    • When we went to Seoul last year I was really impressed with her photo taking skills, she was starting to actually think about things, like what she wanted/didn’t want in the frame! Too funny about your daughter!

    • it is fun and I think its such a fun thing for kids to do whilst traveling (or even day trips etc) she loves having her ‘own’ camera!

  3. I love that you gave Eden a camera! Super duper cute! I plan to do the same for my little guy as he gets older. Right now he is very interested in my camera but I think he’d do better with a little point and shoot that is easy to use. 🙂 I love what Eden did!

    • Eden just has a point and shoot! If down the road she really wanted to learn more I would consider upgrading her to a DSLR but for now its a point & shoot!

      • Keep it safe and simple yeah? Still you can do amazing things with a point and shoot too. And with a mama like you, I think she is headed in the right direction!
