…she’ll most likely take you aback completely by sharing her perspective on the world as her (then) four-year-old self sees it:
These were all taken in February of 2008, just after Nibsy’s 4th birthday, with my now defunct Sony camera.

- Dollhouse from a four year-old’s vantage point/February 2008
And if you let her use your camera, she’ll probably drop it and break it. So going forward, you’ll probably want to buy her a camera of her own that is designed for children and is less fragile.
And if you get her a camera of her own she’ll probably take pictures of things that catch her attention, like animals or interesting scenery:
The majority of the following were taken with Nibsy’s own Polaroid a800.
And she probably will also take photos of animals she loves:
And she’ll probably take some pictures of the vegetable beds that she helped build and plant:
And she’ll almost certainly take pictures out in the garden when she’s scouting for fairies at dusk, after all should she spot one (or hopefully more than one) she’d want to have photographic evidence to back it up. And nevermind Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths, and those Cottingley fairies!:
Did you see any?
She might take pictures of her art work:
And she’ll probably surprise you and take some very sweet pictures of her little sister, even though they fight ALL the time and get on each other’s nerves!:
She might even take a picture of her Nanny with curlers in…….ssshhhhhh!
She will probably try her hand at self-portraiture by experimenting with the camera’s timer:
And if she does all those things, she’ll almost certainly take pictures of things that she just likes, just for the heck of it.
And if she does all of that? Well, chances are she’ll continue taking pictures, but who can say where she came by it?
