Alora's mom is a professional photographer. She often goes to different events to make pictures that later will be used in magazines and different social media profiles. Alora thought it is an amazing thing to do because her mom had a chance to attend world-class events and show them to others through her camera lens.
One day, Alora asked if her mom could teach her how to make professional pictures.
"Ok, Alora, but remember, it is not an easy thing to do."
"So, the first thing you need to do is to find a place that is interesting and beautiful."
"Then, you need to set up your camera."
Alora's mom showed her how to set up the camera and took a picture of her.
"See how the light creates a shadow on your face? That's why it is important for the light to illuminate your face."
Alora then set up the camera in different positions before deciding which one she likes the best. She also learned about different camera settings like aperture and shutter speed which are important for making good pictures.
Later, Alora and her mom went to a park. Alora thought it was a nice place to take pictures because there is an interesting tree casting long shadows. Alora's mom helped her put the camera in the right position and told her how to make sure she has enough light.
"Make sure you change the shutter speed depending on the amount of light you have," said Alora's mom. "Remember, this will make your pictures brighter or darker."
Alora then took a picture of her mom with the camera settings she had just learned about.
"I want to take more pictures," said Alora. "Can I use all your filters?"
"Sure, go ahead," replied Alora's mom.
After Alora and her mom took a bunch of pictures, they looked at the pictures one by one.
"I think this is my favorite picture," said Alora, pointing to a picture of her mom.
"It's my favorite too."
The next day, Alora said goodbye to her mom before heading to school. She was eager to show her friends the pictures she took.
Alora's friends were very impressed with all the pictures. "Wow," said one of her friends. "You're good at this."
"I want to be a professional photographer when I grow up.", Alora replied proudly.
Alora was happy that her friends liked her pictures and she was eager to share the news with her mom.
"You took more pictures?" asked her mom when Alora came back from school.
"Not this time," laughed Alora. "I just wanted to tell you how my friends feel about my pictures."
Alora and her mom agreed that it was great that Alora's friends liked the pictures and that they would probably continue to take more of them together.
The next day, Alora's mom showed Alora's pictures to her friends at work.
"Do you see how happy she was?" said Alora's mom. "She didn't just take the photos for herself. She took them to share with her friends and she was so happy when they liked them."
"I'm so proud of my daughter".
The following weekend, Alora's mom was going to be a photographer at a wedding ceremony and she wanted Alora to come with her to see how it's done. On the way there, Alora was excited. She took lots of pictures of flowers and other things to remember the day.
When they got there, Alora's mom let her take pictures of the bride. The bride looked so beautiful in her dress, and she was very happy.
Then, Alora's mom took some more pictures of the bride with friends and family. It was a beautiful ceremony and Alora loved being there with her mom!
After the ceremony, Alora's mom took some pictures of the people waiting to hug the bride. When it was Alora's turn, she got a big hug from the bride, and then she got a big hug from her mom.
On the way home, Alora saw that she had taken over 100 pictures and they all turned out great!
Alora's mom was so proud of her and promised to develop some of them so Alora can put them in a photo album.
Alora loved being a photographer's assistant and it made her want to be a real photographer one day even more.
It was a beautiful day.
