Foto Friday

Below are some pics of Morgan when she was about 10 months old.















I didn't take these -- I'm not that talented. :)  And I debated on whether I'd ever post these to the blog...You probably notice that these look catalog-like.  That's because they were taken by a photographer from a modeling agency-networking company.  Back in the summer I took Morgan to a child modeling/casting-like thing that came to Birmingham.  Not sure what I was thinking -- I guess my mindset was more like, "Why not?"  Plus, I was off this past summer -- maybe I was bored?  LOL.  And I certainly never thought I'd be one of THOSE parents.  LOL.  And I never thought any thing would come out of it.

Long story short, there is an agency out of Charlotte that has shown interest in her.  This company's clients include Coca-Cola, Sears, Target, and other well-known companies.  While we are flattered, I've learned a lot about this whole child modeling industry.  It's SERIOUS BUSINESS.  It's not all about having a cute baby, showing up for some pictures, and going back home with a check.  It's extremely competitive (there's not a lot of work for babies), and it can be costly (time and money).  Unless you're Julia Roberts, Will Smith, or some other big name, it's the client's job (your job) to keep the portfolio up-to-date.  With Morgan being so extremely young, we'd have to invest the time, money, and energy to change her portfolio very often  -- simply because young children's looks change so much (not only that -- she could look totally different months from now and not have that "look" anymore).  While there are many parents willing to invest in this kind of thing, I've sort of thought about this and decided that we'd be willing to do something like this IF Morgan wants to do that kind of thing later in life.  When she's old enough to say, "Mama and Daddy, I want to sing/act/dance..." or whatever.  In the meantime, she just needs to be a baby.  We still haven't told the agency no thank you, but I think we will next week. 

I hope everyone's having a great weekend!
