Is My Granddaughter Cute, Or What?

Tag: UncategorizedDonna B. @ 12:34 am


From left to right: Issie, 5 days old; Issie 5 mo. old; Issie 2 years old. The last photo was taken by a professional photographer who I highly recommend, Gina Kolsrud. She is in Chandler AZ and takes wonderful photos even when her subject is not as wonderful as my granddaughter. Here’s her photography website.

I’m fairly proud of the first two photos which I took, but artistically they don’t quite compare do they? (Of course the only reason is equipment, grandma said… Yeah, that’s the ticket!) What doesn’t show is that those two photographs are two out of a few hundred that grandma snapped. Everybody gets lucky once in a while.

The other thing that should be immediately apparent to everyone is that the model is exceptional. Even to a non-grandparent this should be apparent! It will, however, probably not be apparent to other grandparents. I understand.

I have three other grandchildren that I did not have the opportunity to spend lengthy times (30 days+) with and thus didn’t have time (it takes a LOT of time for an amateur photog) to get what I’d call artistically good photos. I am suggesting the parents of the other three to get to Chandler post haste.  Gina Kolsrud is an exceptional portrait photographer. 

I have great photographs of my other three grandchildren, but I feel a little guilty scanning them in without being able to give credit to the photographer. I think Nonna should spend a month with them taking her own, don’t you?

    Wow, she has the most amazing eyes! Gorgeous!!!! Great job on your picture taking, you can give the photography a run for the money any day!

    Her eyes got to me the day she was born. And thanks for the kind words about my photos. I am fairly proud of them! But my ratio of acceptable to yucky photos is about 1/1000.

    Oh my, she is so darn cute! I hope my little Tater is cute like her and that I can snap some artistic photos of my own…

    Your granddaughter is adorable!! I can only hope that my children will be so full of wide-eye’d wonder. And your photographs capture your granddaughter’s fabulous-ness just as well as the professional. I thought all three were professional photographs before reading your explanation.

    Thank you all for the compliments on my granddaughter and on my photography skills.

    There’s no “or what” about it! Your granddaughter is gorgeous! (Though you will need to post pix of the others too, I think!)
