More About the Author

Tracey Clark spends her days(and nights)juggling an all-encompassing career as a photographer/writer/blogger/teacher with the precarious art of raising both a spirited grade-schooler & a tireless teen with her husband in sunny So Cal. Although she's got 20 years of professional photography under her belt she simply considers herself an Everyday Photographer, not only because she shoots every day but because her favorite subject matter is found in the everyday-ordinary.

Tracey founded the community photo blog Shutter Sisters, where women with a passion for photography are celebrated daily. She teaches a number of creative photography classes at Big Picture Classes and can also be found on her blog www.traceyclark.com and on Instagram @traceyclark.

Tracey is the author of Waiting for Baby, Baby of Mine and is co-author of Expressive Photography: a Shutter Sisters Guide to Shooing From the Heart. Right now, she is most giddy about her soon-coming latest title Elevate the Everyday: A Photographic Guide to Picturing Motherhood, due out this spring.

I am a grandfather, and I bought this book for my daughter-in-law, who loves taking pictures of her beautiful daughters. And of course, before I give it to her, I read to see if it will do what I hope it will. It does.

Tracy Clark is an accomplished photographer; so there is no surprise that the book has good advice in it. But Clark's competence is the least of the many virtues of the book. Far more important is the open heart that she puts on display. She understands the sense of inadequacy that deters most mothers, that keeps them from taking pride in their photographs. She too has suffered from fear. So Clark is able to lead, to mentor, to guide her audience. It is hard to imagine a better book for mother who wishes to document the life of her child and herself.

I think this will turn out to be one of the better gift I have ever made.

I absolutely love the candid wisdom Tracey shares in this book through stories of motherhood with which any mother can relate and practical technical photographic tips and advice. The importance of using photography as our own self-care tool is a unique piece of the book that every mom should read and take to heart. And, the imagery and photos woven throughout are stunning as well. This book is going on my favorites shelf and I am sure I will refer to it often.

I have been a fan of Tracey Clark's for several years, I've even taken a couple of her online photography classes. She is always thoughtful and insightful, and I love her focus on keeping it real and thinking outside the box. In this book, she manages to present new ideas and new ways of looking at EVERYthing, including the "clutter" around your house as bookmarks of your kids' ages and stages.

Inspiring photography book that makes me re-frame how I think about everyday photography especially about how to take brilliant children's photos.
