My son has had a rough life. I was diagnosed with Crohn's just before his 1st birthday and struggled to live normally for a few years. At 2.5, my wife, his mom, was diagnosed with one of the worst brain diseases out there. She lives in a constant state of pain, is disabled by it, and cannot perform regular tasks most of the time.
Finding ways for our son, Clive to cope have been challenging. Photography has been one of those ways. He's been loading and shooting his own film since he was 4 (both instant and 35mm). It's been a great way to bond the two of them together when they are apart as he knows he's taking pictures most of the time to show his mama when he gets home.
On Thanksgiving, two months after turning 5, I gave him the task of trying to get everyone's pictures at the family dinner. Here's some of the images
2. Me (dad) and my cousin.
3. Great Uncle, a karate instructor.
4. Grandma saying grace with Grandpa.
5. Great Grandma and great Uncle telling stories after dinner.

Any other parents of kid photographers out there? Or know of any to direct me to? I'd love to see other parents' ideas on how they implement photography with their children
