So I lovingly call my job crazy but let's be real ... it kind of is. I never liked photographing wedding parties or large family reunions ... it wasn't my personality. Toddlers and babies are my people and they make me happy. So yes you can call me crazy :)
This past year Hello Charlie has grown and has had ups and downs but through it all I learned if I want to continue I have to ask for help. I have expanded the team to include Maria Valdez who has no title but we could call her anything from my assistant to my life coach. I added two amazing hair stylists Ami Kordick and Kelsey Goins who also have little kiddos that model for me. And last but not least we added Emily Larson, who is our intern and we are counting the days until she is back in town from summer break!
We can't forget we also have somewhere around 200+ tiny little models. I tried to count the number that model "regularly" and it was about 50-60 but it really changes every month based on our shoots and clients. I wanted to just give you a small glimpse at who are models are and this photo only has 1/8 of our models ... someday we will take a giant group photo! We have babies from 3 months old up to kiddos age 8 who model REGULARLY for us. How crazy amazing is that?! Some of these kiddos have been seeing each other 1-2 times a month for the last two years and I am so proud of how far they have come. They each could easily go onto stardom in whatever field they choose to someday. But I like to think they will say "oh yeah we used to model together at Hello Charlie" :)
Thank you to Sam Owenson for taking our photos so we can be in front of the camera for once!
