Aria’s photoshoot for PaigeLauren Baby

A few weeks ago, I came upon this casting on hollywoodmomblog.com for PaigeLauren Baby:

“Seeking both boys and girls with thick hair…”

That’s MY baby! Sure, she was older than 9 months at the time, but is quite petite for her age, so I thought, “why not?”

Last week, I received an email from them inviting my daughter Aria to the shoot. It’s not a paid gig, but we get copies of the professional photos and a discount on the clothing. I figured it would be a good experience, and the photos would be nice to have. Besides, the clothing from PaigeLauren Baby looked really cute online.

Today was the photoshoot. It was really nice that they did their best to accommodate everyone’s schedule beforehand. We drove to downtown L.A. in a reasonable amount of time, and everyone there was very friendly and helpful. The theme was for their “Arts Collection,” so the babies and kids were photographed with paintbrushes, posters, and (for the older ones) non-toxic paint and easels. It was so cute to see all the full-haired babies modeling. They really looked like adorable little dolls! I was afraid Aria wouldn’t stay still, because she usually doesn’t when I try to photograph her, but she managed to stay in place for several shots. The photographer was really good with kids, and we sang songs and made noises to get her attention. Paige Lauren is very professional and you can tell she has been doing this for awhile because she knew exactly where to place the kids and their threshold for being in front of the camera.

I snapped a couple pictures with their permission:

The clothes are really well made, and so soft!  I hope her photos make “the cut” for the website. I’ll share some photos from the shoot when I receive them!
