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, AliOli Kids and many others, but there is a general pattern each time that your child will either love or hate.
You’ll see it’s all good fun. Yes, there are down sides, a little bit of waiting around, some noise, a few outfit changes, but they get to meet some lovely people, and other children, the brand provide them with enough snacks and drinks to keep them going…
