Fortune was favoring me when I approached the portrait studio desk at JCP. The 20-something man's eyes lit up when he heard my plan.
"I'm turning 40 next month, and I want pictures of me that look like that," I pointed at a frilly, tutu-wearing four-year-old.
"That's so totally fun!" he said.
My response was to request a booking whenever he was scheduled since he "got it."
