A Model in the “WORKS”….well maybe! My Daughters 1st Photoshoot with Beaux Bebes LA!

Recently my daughter Delaney had an opportunity to shoot new arrivals for an amazing local baby boutique called beaux bebes LA. This boutique is not like any other baby boutique I have been to. It is definitely a one stop shop for all of your babys needs. They not only offer amazing design threads that she was able to model in, but they also sell organic clothing & toys, Noodle & Boo skincare, original nursery wall art & murals, and luxury nursery furniture. They also have an area for consignment, which is great if you want to trade in your gently pre-owned baby items and get some new goodies. I have had the opportunity to trade in some of Delaneys gently used items and let me tell you… the owner Holly does her research to give you a reasonable amount for trade in. I was able to walk away with some adorable items for her.Needless-to-say I was more than thrilled when I was asked to take part in the photoshoot.

The photoshoot took place at beautiful, historic Strathearn Park in Simi Valley, CA. We met with photographer Nicole Aitken, who is the photographer whose photo packages are available for purchase and you can see samples of her work at beaux bebes LA. Although Delaney had a bit of a cold that day and sniffles were in full force, Nicole managed to get some amazing shots of her and Holly the owner of beaux bebes LA’s daughter Zoe who was also a model for the shoot. Nicole was very sweet and enthusiastic with the girls and kept them smiling. The shoot was smooth and quick since it can be hard to keep kids interested at this age but Nicole knew what she was doing…quite impressive.

Check out some of the beautiful images Nicole Aitken captured of the girls and the gorgeous designs offered at beaux bebes LA.

To see more adorable pictures and super cute clothes from Delaneys photoshoot be sure to visit and like beaux bebes LA’s Facebook page or you can visit beauxbebesla.com where they ship ANYWHERE in US or Canada.

If you are interested in booking a photo session with Nicole Aitken Photography you may do so at beaux bebes LA. Be sure to book well in advance. I tried to book a session for Delaneys headshots recently since I was so impressed with her work, but she is booked out until February 2013 and I was heart broken.  This woman’s work is amazing so she is in high demand and busy but will be worth the wait. She has an amazing eye for detail and will capture your child at their best. Not only did I receive beautiful images of my daughter that I will cherish forever but look at how I received my disc….beautiful! Be sure to like her on Facebook!

Sooooo, what do you think? Aren’t the designs adorable? Believe me, I wanted to take everything home. Do you think I should start looking for an agency to represent Delaney? How cute would it be if she followed in Mommys footsteps and she became a Model?

Check out a shot of me Danielle Line when I was little and my Mom tried to get me into modeling. Fun times!

Where it all began...ya that's me back in the day!
