For all children photographers who regularly use a flash or wireless transmitter, the DaisyGrip™ can now be used without taking up the camera’s hot shoe. Introducing the DaisyGrip™ Bracket. It’s a simple yet sturdy right angle bracket that positions the DaisyGrip™ in the perfect position to get a child’s attention – right above the camera lens. And for a limited time, get this bracket free with the purchase of a DaisyGrip™.
When this revolutionary new tool for child photographers was first introduced, the DaisyGrip™ needed to be attached to the camera’s hot shoe. But many photographers requested a solution to this setup as they need their camera’s hot shoe to be free to accept a flash or wireless transmitter.
Now the creator’s of the DaisyGrip™ have found a solution. Kick the DaisyGrip™ right out of the hot shoe with this right angle bracket. It is sturdy, lightweight, yet simple and inexpensive. Most importantly, it provides an ideal place to attach the DaisyGrip™. Here’s how it works: the bracket fastens to the bottom of the camera via the tripod mount and extends to the left of the body, or can be angled out towards the lens for greater extension. At the end of the bracket is a cold shoe where the DaisyGrip™ attaches, and then articulates out over the camera lens. And voila! The hot shoe is now free to hold a wireless transmitter or flash. The bracket can even be used with a tripod for added versatility for studio shooting.
For a limited time and while supplies last, get a free DaisyGrip™ Bracket with every DaisyGrip™ purchase. Please see the DaisyGrip™ website for complete information on this offer that adds great versatility to the DaisyGrip™.

Created out of necessity by child photographer Christine DeSavino, the DaisyGrip™ was designed to help capture the smile of a child. It does this by holding a wide variety of toys just above the lens of a camera. It can hold finger and hand puppets, stuffed animals, and even an iPhone® playing a child’s favorite cartoon.
DaisyGrip, LLC – For a Child’s Smile - was recently formed by Christine DeSavino and David Harges, a husband and wife team, and owners of Christine DeSavino Photography. As an offshoot to their children’s portraiture business, Christine and David formed this new business to sell and promote the DaisyGrip™, a brand new tool which they designed specifically to help photographers overcome one of the toughest obstacles when photographing a child – capturing that perfect smile and natural giggle.
Christine DeSavino Photography, LLC – a NJ based children’s portrait studio - was started in 2007 and has quickly become a premiere custom photography service in northern NJ & the NYC metro area. Specializing in the fine art of children’s portrait photography, Christine focuses on the child, capturing the beauty and innocence of each stage in the child’s journey. From the expecting mother to the newborn infant, from the precious baby to the determined toddler, from the curious child to the confident teen, her photography captures the unique qualities that children embody.
About Christine DeSavino:
Christine’s passion for photography began while she was traveling Europe. Visually, she was awe-struck and wanted to be sure to remember it all, but from her own point of view. As a result, she spent three wonderful years in Barcelona studying photography.
She met her husband years later in New York, where they were both working in the film industry. After having kids, Christine couldn’t be away from them for a typical 12 hour film day. She wanted to raise her children yet continue her career. Children’s portrait photography was a natural progression.
“I had no idea how much love I had inside of me, until I had my children,” says Christine. “It’s what I try to capture in my portraits – a love and reverence for this special stage of life called childhood. Starting a family is such an incredible time of life and I am thrilled every time I have the privilege of documenting it for someone – from the joy of holding your newborn, to the endearing preschool ages, to the we-can-rule-the-world attitude of pre-teens. It’s all so amazing and passes by in a blink. I think it’s important to have it documented so you can look back and never forget.”
