My Kids Are Not Camera Shy

Let’s be honest.  My blog is littered with pictures of my children.  For the past four years, my offspring have been my usual test subject when I try new cloth diapers, figure out what works for us, read stories, or do anything child oriented.  I embrace the title of “mommy blogger.”  I’m a mommy.  I’m a blogger.

Some bloggers have kids that are camera shy, and it makes doing reviews a little more difficult… particularly if that review is for a diaper and said child needs to be present for photos to demonstrate fit.  My kids, however, are not camera shy in the least.  Eudora will prance around when I get the camera out if she’s in the right mood.  Norton is always in the mood.

Since we’ve gotten Norton housebroken, he hasn’t been the subject of any diaper pics.  (Really, it’s hard to take diaper pictures when I don’t want him in diapers for any other reason than overnights.)  Still, though, Norton wants to be the subject of pictures every bit as often as his sister.  Maybe more.  Whenever I take pictures of Eudora for blog pics, he rushes in to get his picture, too.


I will frequently have Norton run into Eudora’s room when he hears the camera click.  He almost always assumes that pose and says, “Mommy, take a picture of da bum?”

Norton is also a streaker.  I’ve never had a kid so difficult to keep clothes on.  This has caused some embarrassment, like when he stands in the big picture window in the living room and waves at neighbors.  With not a stitch on.  While it’s almost endearing that he’s so very uninhibited, I’m just not up for taking pictures of naked boy butt.

So that means that on those occasions when he does get clothes on (since sometimes telling him that we don’t take naked pics and he needs to put some clothes on is effective), I’ll happily take pictures of his tush.

Is your child in love with the camera?

  1. Most definitely. We just put our house for sale the this week. The realtor was over here trying to take pictures Monday and Myka kept following her around the house just because she had a camera. lol

    Lol! Too funny, but so cute! I’m sure he’ll get over the streaking soon enough – I used to babysit a child that did that! It lasted maybe 4 months? They just don’t know or understand why we need clothes, it is their natural state as far as they are concerned! LOL!

  3. Oh haha…too funny!! I shouldn’t laugh too hard though as somehow I can see this being my daughter in the future.

    My kids are too busy to care about the camera. It’s so hard to get pictures of them because they won’t stop what they are doing to look at the camera. I have a lot of pictures of them but hardly any when they are actually looking at me.
