Not long ago, our little Genevieve was treated to her very first photo session. It's not like we don't have enough photos of the little monkey, actually quite the contrary. We have hundreds of candid shots we've snapped over the past few months. Many of which I've posted here, and on Facebook. But we wanted some professional looking photos we could send to family, and feel confident about putting up on the wall in the house. Sadly, neither Hannah nor I feel qualified or would even know where to begin.
Enter our good friends Daniel and Galina Nisley. Daniel is an accomplished amateur photographer who does some wonderful work. After a quick phone call, plans were made for a Saturday morning session at our home. How much more perfect could it get? Well, as luck would have it, we got a much later start that morning than we would have liked, and Genevieve was not in the greatest of moods. Two of the things she deplores most in her little world are getting out of the bath, and changing outfits. Not only was she getting a hurried bath that morning, but would receive several outfit changes as we paraded her through all of the clothing picked out for the event. Needless to say, she was not a happy camper.
As the session began, I was simply astounded by Dan's patient and calm demeanor. It had a definite effect on Genevieve, and she began to calm down. He brought out her beauty and personality in his shots, and we couldn't be happier with the finished results!
Below is just a sample of the shots he took. If you like what you see, I urge you to visit his Flickr page, or contact him on his Facebook page, both are included below.
Thanks Dan! We are absolutely in love with these photos!
