Even though it might not look like it, behind all the smiles and relaxed poses in these shots was an uncomfortable, self conscious, and mostly bored-out-of-her-brain girl.
Smiling on cue is really hard work. I need motivation like a Ricky Gervais movie or an episode of Fawlty Towers.
Models? I salute you... you clearly don't have any ants in those cute pants of yours and possess a tolerance for sitting still and beaming for hours on end that I just don't have.
Oh and there's someone else I must salute in this post: my amazingly talented step-dad Thom, who took these photos while copping my whining, wriggling and impatience. No easy task. Onya Thom.
