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 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.

Love the out-takes! My girls are just as hard to photograph. I'm sure that just when they start listening to me, they will be too old too. LOL It always amazes me that I can even get 10 or so decent pics out of the 200 I seem to take. LOL

I love that set Allison and that she likes to be involved too is so cute!

Thanks so much guys! Yea, Angel we also usually end up with about 200 photos, except that day we only had 115 (my batteries died!). I can actually get her to look at the camera, but if she does it with a SUPER cheese, so it's actually better if she doesn't.

I think London has GREAT tastes Allison!! :) I was just reminiscing today about when my girls would model for me. Now they're too big. :(

Thanks for your comment on my blog!! :)
