How many of you reading this have school-aged kids, or know any? I bet if you do, they are fans of Toni Buzzeo’s wonderful children’s books. I know my own kids are, and it was a huge treat to get to photograph Toni’s new headshots, which she’s using for a new brochure. Toni and I met at her home, and did some photos in her little writing cottage — a tiny oasis in her backyard that just oozes calm. I can see why she loves writing there! After we did those shots, we headed over to a lovely park overlooking a pond near her house — with a beautiful large tree and some playground equipment (perfect for a children’s book author!) we had a lovely time exploring out surroundings.
One of the things I love about my clients is that I get to know them during their sessions — with Toni, I loved hearing about her life and how different parts of it brought her to writing, and how she persisted to get published — a daunting task, for sure, and one that doesn’t necessarily get easier even with a couple dozen well-received titles already under her belt.
