Show them what your family tree looks like!
I don’t really like doing pictures sometimes because I want to go play outside. But Miss Tracie is funny. She hates pickles. But I don’t. I’m going to bring her a big jar of them next time. She’ll freak out.
She’s nice. She has kids so she know how to make us kids laugh and she brings fun stuff for me to use for pictures. Miss Tracie loves my fancy poses, like this!
You always capture the real them, the quirky, goofy, real them. What I love about them. Also you get me out from behind the camera WITH them. They grow up far to quickly, and having them photographed at all the different stages is precious to me.
I like her rubber chicken. She gives me smarties. She’s silly and she likes my “Superman Face”
In the past, “photo time” was always something I dread. Just tell me where to stand and what to wear. A couple years ago we were referred to Tracie Bea. She’s fun to work with, professional and doesn’t waste any time. She got some very charming photos of the kids playing with me, that I am forever grateful for. I would much rather spend money and do it right, than have some painfully boring sheet of 5×7’s from a generic portrait studio.
Tracie’s ability to adapt to different personalities is a huge bonus for us. I’m loud and nutty. One kid is a firecracker where the other one is very reserved and timid at first. She not only gets “great shots” but somehow manages to grab each person’s personality, too. The REAL them, not someone she posed and glued a smile on their face.
Tracie did our family’s creative portraits at Centennial Lakes in Edina this spring. She was great to connect with, could get our kids to giggle for the perfect shots, and brought along her props for the fun flare in making our pictures come alive! We will definitely hire her again!
I take a LOT of photos of my kid, mostly with my iPhone, but there’s just something about planning and shooting a session with Tracie that is extra special. I love her creative side, and all the fun things she does with them.
