Photo Genius

Why did we give our daughter a camera? Well, she wanted one, it was her birthday... and somewhere, deep down in depths of my soul where reason can never out debate hope, I wondered if maybe our artistic little girl would have some sort of natural affinity for photography. A gift. No, I don't have one, but I can't draw either, and Madeleine can.

Let's see the little artist at work, shall we?

Here are some photos Madeleine will be adding to her portfolio that she took within the first month of owning her camera.

A bit rough, perhaps, just just brimming with natural talent, don't you agree?

With a little time and patience, Madeleine masters the art of the self-portrait.

Growing more confident, Madeleine decides to compose the perfect photo shoot. She thinks of all the things professional photographers think of, I'm sure, like using just the right chair for your subject.

If you're not yet convinced of my childrens' genius, let's see what Hank can come up with. Here Madeleine shares the her tools of the trade with her brother, resulting in another stunning photo essay.

Please, I know it will be hard, but please remember these are the works of artists and, as such, if you want to copy or reproduce these, the photographers should be compensated. In lieu of cash, please sent photographer tips ASAP to
