Mod Birds (and Modeling)
Ahhh..the joys of "modeling"...I laugh to think that is the word to describe what we are trying to do here. London is not...how do I put this tactfully???? Well, she is NOT a model. For me taking the pictures myself is part of the process, creating something all my own, but make no mistakes about it there is very little actual modeling (or photography for that matter) going on here.
Our sessions usually consist of me running circles around her trying to get her to stand still long enough to get a picture of anything, but most of my photos are literally just a blur as she races by. I know one day she will be too old for this whole boutique thing and I will need to send my sets out to a real model, but for now we are making some fun memories.
She is also becoming quite the little designer and is very opinionated about her clothes. I had this set all planned out, and was stopped in my tracks by a tiny 3 year old terror holding up a bolt of Tina Givens birdie fabric and insisting..."No Mommy, THIS ONE, THIS ONE, I WANT THIS ONE!" She was not impressed with the gorgeous pile of Ms. Butler's new prints I was holding onto. So.... this set is has her mark on it for sure, she was not going to wear it if it did not include her birdie fabric. I actually think it adds just the right touch. Here's the ebay link...Mod Birds.
