...you should put her in modeling...

I hear that regarding Layla...and her hair - let's be honest...at least 5-10 times a week.  I realize I was blessed with a cute kid.  But, what makes her POP is that mop of RED CURLZ on her head!  I'm just being honest.  I love 'em too! 

But, since I am being honest here.  I just can't do it.  It = sign her up for modeling.  Granted, mommy makes time for TONS of photo shoots...but they are for me.  And for my family and friends enjoyment.  Not for ads or commercials.  Though I find it completely fine and acceptable for all that do. 

I've said it before and I will say it again.  Layla DOES NOT LIKE THE CAMERA. 

Case in point. 

Playing in her room with "her babies" the other day....smile for mommy.

{Exhibit A} 

{Exhibit B - crap she is still there!}

{Exhibit C - please leave now mom!  I'm trying to put my babies down for a nap!}

Those are her "over it" eyes!!!!

So that, my friends.  Is why I do not put her in modeling.  I would like to.  But, I do not want to subject my kid - and the professionals - to something she and them would definitely NOT like!

So, I will just keep following her around and have her yell at me to "STOP TAKING PICTURES OF ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

She is surely a cutie pie and I can see her in GAP ads and Beneton ads too but totally understandable...if she hates the camera...why do it?

Besides, I like her take on taking photos ;P

Totally understand why you don't push her, she has to be super happy right!

She is a doll with superstar hair! I love your photos of Miss Layla, she has the BEST expressions, especially when she's giving you her 'tude.

oh yes, she is totally totally adorable and beautiful! however, some girls (okay maybe even most!) hate the camera! it's all good though, as long as she'll continue posing for your own photoshoots!
btw, i LOVE this song! :)

Layla IS beautiful and those curls of hers are amazing! You are taking excellent care of them (I know how hard it is!) and it totally shows! I love to take pictures too - and I have a TON of Serenity. She's not always thrilled with me taking so many pictures - and I'm not ashamed to say I bribe her! LOL! Every time we go to town people tell me how beautiful she is - and they all love her hair (which she CUT earlier this year, I CRIED) - and I'm also not ashamed to say I LOVE it when I hear people tell me how beautiful my baby is!
