“Toddlers and Tiaras”

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.

Mickie Wood said that televison programs want to build ratings so you can’t believe everything you watch on TV. The two announced recently that Eden will be taking a break from the pageant circuit to pursue other endeavors.
