We take TONS of video of our daughter, Annabel. TONNNNNNS. And while lots of it is silly and fun, we also take lots of candid video of her. I love capturing her when she doesn’t know I’m recording. She’s a little performer when she knows the camera is there, and sometimes I just want to get her playing with her dolls, or singing little songs. She’ll only be this little for a short time.
Capturing her on the sly has become harder as she’s grown older. She knows what the cameras look like. The good thing is this Sony Handycam has a crazy-good zoom, so I can film her from far away. This morning, Annie and my husband were playing with their guitars in our living room. I grabbed my camera and filmed them from the kitchen, and she had no idea.
If she’d known I was filming, she’d have gotten up and danced all around. Instead, I got her “playing guitar” with her daddy. So freaking cute.
