Or, if you’re my child, instead of striking a pose, you can mug at the camera like you’re gonna shank somebody…
Which is, of course, exactly what you should do when you get your probably-not-gonna-make-a-difference-but-one-can-only-hope big break in the elusive world of child modeling.
Luckily, even his shankin’ face is sorta cute.
And, fortunately, the people in charge of this whole deal seemed to be fine with him doing “serious” face the entire time. Although, in his defense, he did attempt to smile once and it was so very, very grimacey and fakey they asked him to put this one away and never bring it out again…
So maybe he’s no Zoolander.
Although I can’t help but to think of how many mom-snapped I’m-awesome-and-fun-and-so-photogenic pics I have right now in my Instagram stream that I wanted to show them! I wanted to whip out my iPhone and go, “See? Do ya see? Look at all of these amazing photos. He’s not a scary-smiler! And he’s not a hiding a shank in his sock! It’s just, um, like, a homemade slingshot. And he’s totally fun, and cool, and not glare-y, or weird. He just needs like 5 minutes to get his head in the game. Or a Nerf gun. Do you have a Nerf gun?”
I really just wanted to show them all of my photos like this that truly capture his Mr.Funky Mc. Freshness…
Where was this face when he was on that set?!
We can do better prospective-modeling-agents-who-may-see-this-catalog! I swear.
We. Can. Do. BETTER!
We got this America.
We’ll be sure to share the ads when they are ready, until then, we’ll be practicing on our smiles!
