While having dinner tonight at our local Ruby Tuesday, we were seated near the sweetest looking family. They had 3 kids, ranging in age from about 11 down to probably 5 or 6. Other than just being really cute and exceedingly well-behaved kids, they were also really unique looking! I SO want to get them in the studio!!
You see, they all had really cool hair cuts. And unusual hair cuts at that. The oldest one, a boy, had a really snazzy looking mohawk. Yes, an honest to goodness mohawk! I LOVED it! He even used colored hair gel to keep it standing upright. He did it up in reddish streaks. Completely cool! And his younger sister, who was probably about 8 or 9, also had an age-unusual style and it really suited her. It was one of those avant-garde beveled bobs where it’s shorter in the back and much longer in the front. It looked so cute on her. And the youngest one…oh my. She was probably about 6 or so and had this adorable mass of dusty strawberry blonde hair with big unruly curls pushed back with a headband. All three, so different, but each style worked on them individually. I was smitten, what can I say? LOL
So, of course, I had to go over, introduce myself – which is something I rarely do since I’m normally a little shy in those situations – and give them my business card. I’m really hoping they give me a call. The kids seemed super sweet, the parents quite nice (and nice looking themselves!) and I think they’d be a lot of fun in the studio. I’d love to have them as part of my portfolio, but also just for the fun of making a cool portrait of some really cool looking kids!
