Sweet Pea, Cassidy

I had the honor of taking Cassidy's two-year-old portrait recently. I have to admit I was a little nervous at the thought of photographing a toddler who has been described as a bit of a diva. Like my wise friend, Bethany, once said "we want our daughters to be strong and opinionated - just not with us. Yep. You got that right, B!Anyway, Miss Cassidy loved seeing herself in my camera after I gushed about how adorable she looked. So she was very agreeable to taking more shots. Even when she wasn't agreeable to a pose, she was sugary sweet with her rejection of the idea. A soft "naaahh" was all she would say. I can take that all day long! No fits, no tears, just a pure delight to photograph.Do you love my background? It's a shower curtain from HomeGoods! I do have a portable stand I use, but that's where the professional look ended. I forgot to buy some heavy-duty clamps from Home Depot, so I had to use duct tape. Classy, huh?Thank you Marty for the honor of taking Cassidy's portrait! And a big thanks to your little girl for taking it easy on me. Thanks to Amanda for recommending me, too!I'm always striving to learn from every session, so if you have any suggestions, comments or even questions, I'm game! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Classy all the way to the bank, Ms. duct tape! I have another saying - if you can't see it, it doesn't matter! :) (and you may be the only one to use my name & wise in the same sentence... for that, I heart you more) These are just sweet shots! I like that you captured different expressions, #1 & #4 are my faves.

  2. Traci, I just love Cassidy's pictures! It was such a fun photo shoot. It is so nice seeing my little girl behind your lens and your artist photograghs. I am looking for the perfect frames. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    And I think you are very professional..duct tape and all!

  3. YOu did a good job! I was loving the backdrop before you mentioned idea! I love the color. She was an adorable subject.
    The light is perfect in the BW!!
