First of all, just LOOK at this shot:
Can you believe this kid?
In reality, I think he was either yawning in this picture or looking at this little rope toy that belonged to the dog who belonged to the people who owned the house where we did the shoot OH MY GOD I THINK THIS SENTENCE IS GIVING ME A SEIZURE.
Actually it gave me an idea for something to put on a nerdy writer t-shirt:
THE VOICE SHOULD BE MADE MORE PASSIVE
Someone should make that t-shirt! Or rather ... that t-shirt should be made by someone.
Now for my "first of all": I just want to say that I'm not going all Macauley Culkin's Mother on you. It's just that I work for an ad agency and occasionally a need arises (child model drops out, child model is out of town, we're doing a test and the company is too cheap to pay full price for real child model) and my boys, who are reasonably easy on the eyes (IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF), don't have much penciled into their Day Runners these days.
Plus it's nice to see them dressed as actual people once in awhile.
Although, now that I think about it, I may need to reconsider my stance on the whole modeling thing for Patrick, because he is just RIPE for the pimping. I swear. The kid was a natural. He was so patient. Quiet. Took direction well. Offered the photographer a variety of natural expressions. I'll post some of the actual photos (and his complete portfolio with stats and contact info) once they're up because OH MY GOD SO CUTE, LITTLE PATRICK HOLDING HIS LITTLE HONEY STICK AND LITTLE FELT HONEY BEE!
Oy. You should see my sonny.
