If You Give a Kid A Camera

One of the things I love about homeschooling is that my children have more freedom to pursue their interests. It’s a blessing to be able to watch them as they explore different interests on their own. All of the photos below were taken by my oldest daughter. Photography is her new hobby that she picked up quite out of the blue, mashalah. She has never taken a class but her pictures are amazing! Allah has blessed her with an eye for hidden beauty, alhumdulilah. All she is working with is photoshop and my little cannon camera, but the pics look very professional, alhumdulilah.


I think it’s a good idea to let children explore their environment with a digital camera. You might be surprised at what you might see, if you give a kid a camera:-)

  1. Allowing children to have a camera is a great idea. Even if they don’t have a natural talent for photography like your daughter, Masha’Allah, there are multiple benefits to seeing what captures your kids attention as picture worthy. My kids love to capture fun family moments to share with their Grandparents. We sit around together after supper and have a great time looking over photos of the years past. Often the favorite memories where captured by the children.

  2. Oh wow these are amazing! I did this once with my son when he was small but havent done it for such a long time. Thanks for the idea! InshaAllah Ill do it again. 🙂
