Marcy Maloy Can't Help but Work on Her Vacation

One thing I love about lifestyle photographer Marcy Maloy is that she's constantly working. An agent's dream. Earlier today Marcy sent me some images from Florida where she is visiting her sweet and beautiful 88 year old mom. Marcy hasn't been in Florida for more than 36 hours and she's already getting shots of her mother in the pool modeling. "I like to photograph all kinds of people, the only thing that matters for me is authenticity," says Marcy. It sounds like Marcy's mom is a sport.

No one photographs babies like Marcy Maloy!



















As a photographer's representative nothing makes me happier than seeing new images from my photographers. It's like Christmas time when they unveil their new work. I suppose that's why I am in this business...I love pretty, cool, conceptual, thought provoking images. And of course that can come in many forms. When Marcy Maloy, children and lifestyle shooter sends me images I often find myself cracking up or simply smiling with joy. You see, Marcy photographs babies. I know, babies and dogs, the saying is true, everybody loves 'em. But there is something really special about the Marcy's shots. I have been on set with Marcy as she is magical. Imagine, Captin Kangaroo meets Snow White with a camera. Kids love her, the evidence is in the images. These images are a few of my favorite recent gems! http://www.sallyreps.com/ or http://www.marcymaloy.com/.
