modeling for zulily

Last month, Giovanna had her first modeling job. Not that she’s a model or that I want her to be a model. This just kind of happened. But when I had to wake her from a nap to get to the shoot on time, I was upset. Sleep is like gold around here.

Then, she fell back to sleep in her carseat, which means she was more tired then usual. I had to wake her up again. By then, I was over it.

But she had fun so much fun that she tried to run back in the building after we’d left.

And then we got these photos. Watch the progression.

As you may have guessed, like so many things that cause stress, it was worth it.


  1. Oh, I love the pictures!!! Congratulations, Gigi! You must share details! How did this happen? Did someone see and love her pictures online? I get asked if I will get my girls in modeling, but the whole process just seems intimidating!


    1. Actually, it was the opposite of intimidating because they didn’t even ask for a picture on the application! I wrote a description (she loves to try on clothes, she’s comfortable in front of the camera, she’s multiracial) and when they contacted me to schedule her, they asked for a picture then. Interesting. We went back for our second shoot a few weeks ago and it was even more fun than the first!


  2. I can’t believe how long I’ve been absent from your blog. i remember when Giovanna was in your belly and her tiny baby was finally in your arms. now she is taking her first pictures as a model 🙂

    happy 2013, to a better connection


    1. Thank you for the visit! Yes, time passes quickly. The older we get, the quicker it seems to go. Giovanna is nearly 3 now. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long 🙂
