Kids+Nature+Camera’s

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” — Dorothea Lange Photography and kids. This is something we’ve become so excited about, maybe because our “big kids” have entered a new faze of life, and photography is something we can share with them now by handing over a camera.
