Natty's Year in Selfies: a 7 year old photographer with Down's syndrome

A NEW YEAR'S EVE POST

As I looked through the events of the past 12 months I stumbled on a set of photos that made me giggle. I decided to forget all the standard measures of the year: how have we developed as a family? Have we achieved the goals we set ourselves last New Year, personally emotionally, career wise? Has our blog/charity work/campaigning taken the direction we wanted?

Instead I looked through the eyes of our youngest daughter, Natty. She's taken enough photos of and by herself to show us what this year has really been about from her perspective, and that is after all, what this blog is all about; listening to the voice of those with Trisomy 21.

I hope you enjoy our alternative look at 2013... a year in selfies, taken by a young 6/7 year old photographer with Down syndrome.

    1. It made me giggle when I found and collated them. It's a lovely exercise and I'll organise it better next year for both girls x

    1. My phone was literally so full of her selfies and video clips of her nose that I had to sip it to take another snap Graham. Hoping she'll hone her skills next year Graham x

  3. This is adorable. My son's favourite thing to do is take selfies too. I get so much joy looking through my phone after he's hijacked it :) Love seeing the world from his POV.

    My favourite of Natty's is the lost tooth! Just gorgeous x
