A few days ago I had a photo shoot. Now you're probably wondering..."Why did you have this photo shoot?" Well let me tell you why......because I want to. Haha I was actually helping my mom out with her company and modeling a few bags that she made. There is a reason why I'm posting this and I'll get to that in a few. Now, I've had photo shoots before, from when I used to model when I was little, but this shoot was different, I was a nervous reck on the inside.
When I was younger, I was more carefree and didn't care what anyone thought and at the time, there wasn't any "instagram models" who we all know and love. Now to my reasoning, that you don't have to agree with, because it was just how I'm feeling. I was nervous because, all of my favorite models are tall and skinny and I'm short and muscular because I'm a dancer, now I know what you're thinking "but Mia, you aren't a model and you were just helping out your mom" yes I know, I know, but I was planning on posting them on Instagram, and so on and so forth. And as many of you can relate, I compared myself to them even though I shouldn't, but I did. I turned that nervousness into motivation. I was motivated to get in front of the camera more so I could be more comfortable in front of the camera and be that kid I was before who didn't care about what others thought of me. I want to do print/athletic modeling since I am too short for runway Anyway here are a few pictures from the shoot and I loved the way they turned out.

Lululemon is one of my favorite stores to buy my athletic wear. It's great for working out, running errands and if you're having a lazy day you can still rock lululemon (cute and comfy). I remember when I got my first pair of lululemon leggings. I had gotten them for my sweet 16 and I instantly fell in LOVE! They are the only leggings that have lasted me longer than a year without a getting bigger or shrinking and no holes even on the leggings with lace detailing. I highly recommend lululemon, not only cause I love them, but because their clothing makes me feel confident and it fits my body perfectly.
Love fashion, photography, and food!!!!!!
