Since M was a baby, we've had photo sessions together. It's a way for me to practice taking pictures and for M to get more comfortable in front of the camera (so he won't find the glaring lights of the paparazzi so jarring later on in life.)
Truthfully, though, I'm hoping M will share my husband's and my love of photography. While I'm not a great photographer, I am lucky to have a somewhat willing subject to practice on. One of my favorite sites to get ideas for photo projects is Photojojo. It's my source for tips, inspirations, and ideas on what to do with the photos I've amassed. One particular tip that I love is to glue photos into an old Scrabble frame. What could be better than combining my two most favorite hobbies in life?!
Right now, I'm working on compiling photos of M's facial expressions. My goal is to build a book of M's different moods to teach him about feelings, such as: baby sad, baby grumpy, and our favorites, baby pissed off and baby happy:

Check out Photojojo for cool photography tips, gadgets, and fun DIY photo projects like the one I'm doing. The site also has a link to projects that your kids can do with a simple camera, one of my recent, favorite discoveries. The writing is super fun and, even though the ideas are for kids, the tips are great for adults too. I'm even doing them!!
