For the past few years, I've been doing a birthday session with each of Tia's kids. This year, for Charli's session, Tia and I came up with all kinds of ideas - a fairy theme, apple orchard theme, ballet, tutus, & sparkles, a farm-themed shoot with barnyard animals - SO MANY ideas! When it came time to run our suggestions by Charli, I couldn't wait to hear what she picked.
She picked....America's Next Top Model. :) Charli is seven now. The days of Mom and photographer picking out her themes are GONE. So, Charli picked out her favorite outfits, purses, jewelry, shoes, and accessories and it was time for her to rock the runway.
Because Charli is seven, I wanted to keep her modeling theme young and fun. I encouraged her to select her own outfits and accessories and to do her own thing on her runway (she borrowed some items from family members). The only instructions I gave her were to make sure to look at the camera when she got to the end, before she turned around. :)
Like any younger sibling, little brother Kaden always wants to try out whatever Charli is up to. So we let him walk the runway a couple of times too!
