Our six year old, Lauren, has mentioned on multiple occasions that she’d like to be a photographer when she grows up.

Although she hasn't learned how to spell photographer yet, she's proving quite capable with a camera. I took Lauren on her first photo shoot this past weekend. There’s a creek not too far from our house and I thought it’d be the perfect setting to teach her a few things while enjoying time together in the great outdoors.

But, alas, she's only six years old and eventually just wanted to play!

Tech specs: shot on Canon 5D Mark II using modified neutral setting; edited in Final Cut Pro; I really like the flat look straight out of the camera -- kinda matched the wintery mood -- so that's what you see; music by Kendra Springer under creative commons license. Go buy her music! It's great stuff!
