The Face of a MasterAugust 14, 2006
Stacy Bratton is one of the finest children’s photographers I’ve ever met. She recently helped me out on a book, Children’s Portrait Handbook, and gave me some fabulous information on sensory integration, a topic she has studied and put into action into her photography. She once told me that when the air conditioner comes on in the studio, adults don’t give it a second thought, but to a toddler, this sound is deafeningly loud and frightening. She is the master of her own environment and her success ratio with small children is phenomenal. Her specialty is so interesting, that she will be a featured WPPI speaker next March in Las Vegas.
She recently sent me a head shot for our advertising efforts for WPPI, and when I saw the file, I knew that if I were a toddler, she would definitely be my photographer. She’s a pro’s pro but a wonderful personality and a bit of a character too.
