Outfit Your Nanny (With a Camera, That Is)

One of the best things we’ve done is oblige our nanny’s request for a camera to take pictures of the kids.  I thought it was a bit weird, at first, that she would ask for the use of a camera, but also cool if she really did follow through with taking photos.  When we hired her, she shared with us pictures of the children she had worked for in the past and explained how important it was to her to capture memories of each family she had become a part of.  Now, nearly eight months after bestowing a camera upon her, she has taken 45 pages of photos of the kids . . . that translates to 1322 images.
