The results are in for the winner of our Halloween Costume contest. We were looking for a cute, funny, spooky, or imaginative costume from our blog, twitter, and facebook followers. There were many ‘too cute’ kids in their adorable costumes.

The lucky winner of a FREE Le Top outfit of her choice from the Le Top online boutique – www.letop-usa.com is Diana Wai Frazier. We couldn’t resist the photo of her daughter dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo. Check out her entry below.


“She was asking for a Velma costume since summer. I repurposed thrift clothing for her sweater and skirt. Socks are from the soccer aisle at a sporting goods store. Glasses were 3D glasses with the lenses removed. She was all smiles on Halloween!” – Diana Wai Frazier.

Diana, we will be contacting you directly. Start looking through our site at www.letop-usa.com for your favorite Le Top outfit!

We hope you enjoyed part one of our Marcy Maloy interview on our blog from February 16th. Marcy just returned from her fabulous trip from Paris and was able to speak to us further about some of reader questions about how she found her talent for photography, getting a “D” in art class, her inspiration, and some of the rewarding factors in photographing children. Read more to find out!

www.marcymaloy.com


What is the most rewarding factor in photographing children’s fashion?
Marcy: I realized fairly quickly that I had a special rapport with kids…we seem to speak the same language. I can look into the eyes of a baby and make a wordless connection. That is very cool and rewarding. I love to play. I love making up non-sensical scenes and stories with kids and it doesn’t matter to them (or to me) if they don’t make sense. So that is fun.

I like making people happy, and when it all works and the child feels confident and empowered, the parents are proud, my client is happy, my crew feels tight and proud of a job well done, it’s really wonderful — the exhilarating euphoric sense we all have at the end of a shoot…and that is rewarding!

Tell us about yourself – how did you get into photography or what was your calling? And how many years have you been a photographer?
Marcy: It’s odd because I didn’t realize I was “artistic” or visually inclined in any way till I was almost 30! I took a required art class in high school, but got a “D” because I talked too much in class! I had no interest in painting or light…it’s strange because I have such a passion for it now. I was a stewardess with American Airlines for 5 years and then worked at the US Embassy in Paris for the DIA. It was there that a friend loaned me his camera for a whole day and told me to just go shoot and “play”…a strange concept for me because growing up, my parents would only take 1 or 2 pictures at a time on special occasions. I shot 2 rolls of film and I was hooked! I’ll never forget the moment when I went to pick up my film at the Photo Lab on Boulevard St. Germain and the French woman said in her very thick accent. “I sink you have a verrrry gooooode eye!” that was it…that was my turning point…From that moment on I decided I was now going  to be a photographer…whatever that meant…I wasn’t sure…but I definitely decided it was for me!

I spent 3 years at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and came to San Francisco to begin my new life…but that is another chapter.

Give us an inside look into your studio – can you share a picture of your studio and can you describe it?
Marcy: Up until about 10 years ago I had a 2,000 square foot studio, but then because of the .com industry, my studio rent doubled overnight and I realized I didn’t really need a big studio. Now I run my business out of my office out of my home in San Francisco and I rent a large studio when I need one. I have a full time studio manager and I hire freelancers to be my photo assistants on an as needed basis.

For very small jobs I have a large room with high ceilings in my house that works fine.

This photo was taken in my living room/studio.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a professional photographer today?
Marcy: Stick to the part of photography that makes you most happy because passion for something really does give you the fuel you need to keep going…and keep a positive attitude.

When we are preparing the lighting in the studio I use a stand-in…here is my assistant Charles throwing “Bridget” up in the air. The ramp he is sitting on is to create a feeling of a hill for the little boy (top photo) to run down.

 My Dad always told me that the key to success was just to “get out of bed in the morning and get to work! Keep at it!”

Our SINCEREST apologies here at Le Top for the tardy post and announcement of the winners for “best scared” and “most cute” Santa Photo Contest! The holidays had us busy mommies crazy and then down for the count with a cold. We want to thank all of the mommies and daddies for taking the time to submit photos of their babies and kids in their “prime” Santa moments! Check out the photo gallery we also posted on Facebook of other submissions that came to our Customer Service email address. We had a tough time deciding who our winners would be with such special and memorable photos.  Okay, enough of our boo-hooing about being sick and late….and the WINNERS are…..

Winners, please email service@letop-usa.com to redeem your $100 shopping spree at Le Top at www.letop-usa.com. Congratulations!

For “Most Scared” Santa photo….congratulations to Sam Wilson for your babe’s “not too pleased” face. What a Kodak moment!

Le Top's most scared photo with Santa winner

For “Cutest” Santa Photo….we thought this was so sad it was CUTE! Congratulations to Gina Calamita’s daughter, Bella – our winner! This was her daughter’s fist time meeting Santa. According to Gina, “She was not a fan, but finally gave up and accepted that she would have to sit for a picture with the big scary bearded man.  The look of utter defeat on her face says it all. Hope you get a laugh out of it like my husband and I did!”
