"We knew that we wanted to have a professional head shot done for our daughter and it was very important to us that she was with a photographer that we could trust. Tracy is wonderful with kids and was able to make our daughter feel very comfortable which allowed for her to get the best images. When we saw the photos, we were amazed at how beautifully Tracy had captured our daughter - it was exactly what we were looking for. It was also fun because Tracy was able to take both the professional shots, but also some whimsical images which we loved. It was a special surprise! Tracy is extremely talented and creative. "
