Today we received a pleasant visit from David Frank, a local photographer who is taking photos for an upcoming book of children's photos and techniques for taking good pictures of kids. He was here for about an hour and a half and took hundreds of pictures of Olivia in various locations around the house. Most of the shots were candids, though some were posed. The deal is this: He gets to add pictures of Livy to his portfolio and to his book, and we get a free 8x10 of our favorite picture and an opportunity to order any prints we like. Win-win!
Local parents, if you'd like to jump on this bandwagon I highly recommend it. David is gentle and kind with kids, and Olivia took to him instantly. It was a great experience for Livy and me, and I think David had a good time, too.
The website for his Real Kids project is http://davidfrankphotography.zenfolio.com/ . Scheduling the appointment was a cinch, and I'm glad we did it.
