Do you wonder what it’s like behind the scenes of a photo shoot? Or what it is like to be a child model?!
It’s different every time of course, childrens fashion photographer Emily Kornya has worked for Lamantine, Je suis en CP! Hilda.Henri, The Small Gatsby and many others, but there is a general pattern each time that your child will either love or hate.
Today we feature Adrian who is not ‘just a child model’, he’s a good friend of my son Alexander as well.
