I just found this pic from last summer and had to share the story behind it. We were asked by @brimlyhats if Harlow wanted to model for them. I showed her some photos of little girls wearing the hats and asked if she wanted to do it. She said, yes. When we showed up, Harlow was excited. She put on her swim suit and hat and she was ready. But then, when they started snapping photos, she was MISERABLE. For the first half hour, she just buried her head in my leg and wouldn’t participate at all. We finally got her to stand in front of the camera while holding my hand. But she was definitely not up for smiling. She just starred down the photographer with this look like, “I know where you live.” Everyone was so nice about it but I felt bad that we were ruining their shoot. Thankfully, the other little model was a professional and posing her heart out. And Harlow got it together for a few pics at the very end. I remember on the way home, I asked Harlow why she was so unhappy, stressing that she was the one who said she wanted to do it! She said she thought the shoot was going to be in a pool. That’s when I realized the photos I had shown her were of little girls sitting pool side. And on top of that, when we got there, they dressed her in a bathing suit, only to stand in the grass. She didn’t care about the modeling. She was four. She said yes because she wanted to go swimming! Made sense. Anyway, I never really looked through the photos because the whole experience was so stressful. Now, a year later, I unearthed them and MAN, even with the misery, Harlow in a hat was so freakin’ cute that day. And my hand jutting out makes me laugh. It’s amazing what hindsight brings.
