Tongue twister or not it’s true, my son was a model for Microsoft Hardware and he modeled laptops and mice. As any four year old is unpredictable from one moment to the next, my son is no exception. When we arrived that the shoot the stylist asked me what I expected and I said, with him, I have no idea.
He started out a little scared and not sure of what he was doing. He was asked to go sit with another little girl and pretend she was his sister and he said, no she’s not. He wouldn’t sit with her so they told him to go take his first break. He was working or rather not working for even five minutes and he got to take a break.
Kristina (Windows Champion Handler) who loves Miles was able to get him distracted and he decided he would pretend the little girl was his sister after all. It helped that she was really sweet and tickled him to get him to smile a little. They took a few shots and then he got another break. Inside the house of the stylist there was food of all kinds which also helped Miles and his mood. He loves to eat.
This photo shoot took place at the stylist’s house and at a park really close to her house. She made all the preparations, she purchased clothes for all the kids at a second hand store and they all looked like they stepped out of a fashion magazine. I didn’t get Miles’ size to her in enough time so he wore his own clothes but he still looked amazing. She worked on getting the clothes looking just right and the hair had to be perfect. Crazy thing was, she wanted the hair to also look natural and for them to still look like kids. So Miles’ hair in those photos, that’s his natural hair, she didn’t do anything to his hair except run her fingers through it.
Once we got to the park, Miles started hamming it up. He really got into it and wanted to be in every picture. When he wasn’t taking pictures he was digging in the bag of food that Kristina brought for him. At the very end he even gave his sister directions for a perfect photo.
So seeing these adorable children with Mice and computers, does it make you want to go out and get a new mouse or laptop to match your new outfit?
I’m a Windows Champion and this opportunity was presented to me as a behind the scenes of a modeling shoot. Miles was paid.
