About Me, the Lady Who Takes the Photos
Hi there. My name is Ceilidh. It’s spelled super crazy because it’s Gaelic, which is funny because I am not Scottish even a little bit. It always messes with people because it looks difficult to say, but it’s really as simple as “K-lee”. (You can definitely ignore that “-dh” business at the end.)
A few little things about me:
So, oh my gosh, I am *such* a dork. Let's laugh about that together at your session (when I will undoubtedly do something ridiculously dorky).
I received my BFA in Photography from Mass College of Art in 2007, and opened Willow Baby Studios in 2011. I am so glad I started my business before I knew how hard it is to actually run a business!
When I remember that taking a break from working is normal and healthy, I prefer any of the following:
- Standup comedy, especially Mike Birbiglia & Gary Gulman
- swearing (but not in front of the kiddos, promise!)
- singing off-key to any song with lyrics I know, often while "car dancing"
- key lime pie and smushy cookies
- decluttering and minimalism -cleaning out a friends' linen closet gives me a somewhat concerning amount of giddy joy
- my child's goofy jokes
I adore my son, but I am the first to admit that parenting is THE hardest thing ever. Sometimes I fantasize about trading him in for a nice quiet house plant. And then he says something classic, and I've certainly never heard a plant say something as funny or wacky as this:
(below convo took place in front of his small bedside fan)
Him: Momma, you know, it’s pretty weird for a guy like me to have a fan.
Me: What do you mean, a guy like you? You mean, a kid?
My child: Well, yeah.
So yeah. Our job as parents is hard and yet... So. Amazingly. Beautiful. It would be my honor to show you how beautiful you and your favorite people are.
