This afternoon our reporter Marie Martin and I went to interview and photograph ”Toddlers and Tiaras” star, 6-year-old Eden Wood. Eden and her mother, Mickie Wood announced recently that she will be taking a break from the pageant circuit to pursue other endeavors.
When we walked in, our sister magazine was already mid-way through their photo shoot and interview process. Marie and I both instinctively stayed back and observed everyone’s interactions.
I decided to spend some time shooting around the HER magazine girls, hoping to get something different than they did.
Once I got a couple of those shots I tried to get a few of Mickie Wood during the interview. Mickie said she wanted Eden to have the time to be a real country girl; to go fishing and hang out with the family. She also stressed that if Eden said she didn’t want to deal with the industry or media anymore that they would stop.
