Boots has worn cowboy boots since we’ve moved to Texas in 2010 (hence his new nickname). He wore them through the fall and into winter, and then continued into the spring of 2011. By then they needed to be re-soled, and when the 100-degree heat of summer came he continued wearing them just about everyday. Soon, they were too small, so he started wearing Gadget’s boots. And once he grew out of those we bought him another pair the same color and style as his first boots. Well, now the first pair fits Miss C, and in her efforts to be like her big brother she started wearing his hand-me-down boots.
This weekend we finally bit the bullet and decided we would send in Miss C’s pictures to a modeling agency. She needed headshots, so I outfitted her in the below outfit which she happily put on when I told her it involved boots, and she did very well. I showed her the above pose, and she mirrored my actions perfectly. In my profession, I frequently attend photo shoots as the client, so I’ve seen how good talent responds and takes direction. I see potential in her, as it’s more about her behavior on set as it is how “cute” she is.
