Shirley Temple : Revisiting an old session
Today, as I heard the sad news that former child star Shirley Temple has passed away, it made me want to revisit my Shirley Temple styled shoot I photographed back in 2010! Shirley Temple is arguably the most popular child star in Hollywood history and I adored watching her old movies when I was a little girl myself. Her tap dancing and singing skills definitely inspired me as a child, which I’m sure contributed to my constant singing and tap dancing I do around the house today. Yes…I still can indeed tap dance. And clog.
My dear friend and photographer, Stephanie Davis, has an adorable little girl, miss Kate. Like Shirley Temple, Kate also has a bright, plucky and occasionally sassy personality. I thought she’d be perfect for what I was envisioning at the time. This girl is a hoot!
I remember how much fun we had and laughter we all shared that day. Since this was photographed back in 2010, I decided to reedit them (and I wish I shot in RAW back then…boo me). Anyways…enjoy!
See how awesome Kate did?!?!?!
Shirley Temple was a Hollywood legend turned intelligent diplomat. She was a gifted actor who always stayed classy. She will be remembered.
