A $5 Modeling Session

After constant Humboldt County rain, we finally had a break in between storms, and our blue skies were filled with fluffy white clouds.  I grabbed my off camera flash gadgets, a $5 bill, and my semi-cooperative 11 year old son.

While I was gathering my gear, my son disappeared into the bathroom and later emerged with freshly coifed hair – complete with a white hair bow.  “Well mom, if I’m gonna model, I’m gonna do it right.  My new name is – GUNNETTE!”  He said this proudly while asking if he could use the lipstick sitting on the entryway table.  I helped him apply the first layer and did the remaining seven.

We then went outside and I quickly gave commands of “look fierce!” and “duck face!” while he got even more into it, entertaining passing cars and neighbors.

I asked him if I could post his pictures after I edited them.  He granted me permission (this kid is not shy) and then promptly asked for a trip to the Dollar Store so he could spend his $5.
