Though using quantum-leaping lasers to divide segments of the space-time continuum would theoretically capture a slice of life, it could make the universe implode.

Little Rascals’ seasoned shutterbug Tracy trains her artistic eye on families and groups posing for sentimental snapshots against a variety of studio backdrops or in the nearby historical village at Sharon Woods Park. Tracy snaps sterling senior portraits, memorable photos of newborns reaching their arms out to touch their first sports car, and pictures of smiling families staring off into the middle distance. In April–November, weather permitting, shoots can take place at the stunning Heritage Village Museum of Sharon Woods Park, where the natural beauty of cottages, picket fences, and well-dressed squirrels helps make photos even more timeless. After placing an 8”x10” print on the mantel, arranging two 5”x7” prints on a table, and tucking eight wallet photos behind the ears of each family member, photographees can order extra prints à la carte from Little Rascals.
Little Rascals Photography
The two young brothers smile shyly from beneath their caps, their suspenders and bowties slightly askew on their small frames. From behind her camera, Tracy Snyder gently asks the older boy to lean in toward his little brother, and as a mischievous smile breaks across his face, she captures the fleeting grin with the click of a button. A champion of immortalizing moments such as this one, Tracy prides herself on creating essence-capturing portraits thanks to her skill for forging relaxed connections between herself and each of her subjects.
Tracy—a shutterbug with years of experience both behind and in front of the camera—founded Little Rascals Photography as a means of exploring the timeless appeal of old portraits, which is often lost in modern portraiture. This predilection for the past is evidenced in her signature sepia and black-and-white shots that hearken to bygone days, thanks to vintage costuming and careful lighting. Tracy further upholds this old-world approach to photography by hand-tinting her monochromatic shots with pops of color. Her strengths in creating vintage looks also translate to the modern photographing style she uses when taking high-school senior portraits. Each carefully arranged shoot is held either in Tracy’s studio, which houses indoor settings with stairs and windows, or outdoors amid the scenic picket fences and waterfalls found throughout the historic village of Sharon Woods Park.
