My Little Super Model

Rebecca was wearing a t-shirt and a long pair of pants, in the middle of practicing "karate moves", when I asked her to play dress up and pretend to be in a wedding.
The whole time I undressed and redressed her, she babbled about wanting to be raised by "karate people" so she could learn karate.
I tried not to be offended.
She had never shown the slightest interest in marshal arts before now.
She could have just as easily been saying that she wanted to run away and join the circus.

Pretty soon the "karate" talk was set aside for elegantly posing her hands
(trying to get her to relax her white knuckled stance)
and talk about weddings and flowers.
Rebecca started to suggest how she could stand, as if I was photographing her dress and all, instead of just her hands.
I had a vintage hat band, turned wrist corsage, that needed merchandising photos and although Rebecca wasn't my first choice (I wasn't sure of her quick and easy cooperation), her older sister (my photographer in my previous post) was wearing chipped, day-glo, nail polish. Eewwww.
Not very romantic.

Rebecca not only cooperated, she also momentarily forgot about being raised by "karate people".
It was her idea to pose against our dogwood tree with one of its blooms.
I hope she doesn't run off to join a modeling agency.
I won't be able to afford her.

You can find the wrist corsage in my etsy shop.

Super cute! I hope you sell bunches of those! What a sweet girl ... I wonder what it would be like to be raised by karate people? You could start calling her Little Grasshoppah ...

Rebecca looks so sweet, It's hard to imagine Karate people playing a large role in her life, although who would've thought I'd have a Ninja leaping off the back of my sofa...
The wrist corsage is fab, really pretty! Mx

That's so funny! Rebecca and Margaret's son might fall in love and raise karate children! Love the Rebecca! Love dogwoods!

Loved the story, Nathalie! I, too, have a daughter who wants to begin karate lessons...I hope they offer it as a college course. Kill 2 birds, with 1 stone!
