Baby Contest

By Friday, August 13, 2010 10 Permalink 0

Ty loves to roam around Cragslist. He once found a gig for a commercial that was filmed downtown Portland. He keeps insisting that I should take one of the many modeling opportunities. I might be down to my pre-A. baby weight but the tummy is still not presentable (darn you skin!).

I just received a call. A has been selected, from tons of photos, to take part of a baby photo shoot for a calendar!! It is exciting! I really don’t know how well he is going to do. He can get shy around new people. But if the photographer is a girl, BAM! he’ll be a total flirt!

We are meeting tomorrow with them. Hopefully it is not some sort of scam. I’ll kick their buts if it is and they made us waste our time (you see, Grandma is planning on taking the boys to the museum tomorrow).

Maybe, next year you’ll see my little cowboy in a calendar near you! Hehehe

    When we were in Portland, we were signed up with two Extras casting agencies… My youngest was in Fred Meyer Christmas commercial, My oldest in a Jennifer Aniston movie- Management- and I was in a couple of commercials… Portland is a great place to get involved in the industry cuz everyone is super nice!!! one of the extra’s agencies of Extras Only… I’d have to look at the other one cuz I already forgot… We were also asked to come in to be an Extra for Twilight, but that’s when we were moving and I didn’t realize how big the movies would become… Seriously, PDX is great for that!

    Just visiting from Girl Creative and New Friend Fridays! You have a beautiful son! I would love to get my son into modeling, commercials, Disney, etc. He is 4. I would love some tips if you have any!!!

      No tips as of yet. I just sent the email early this morning and got a call in the afternoon! It was unintentional! Though, as Beloved Mama says, Portland is becoming pretty popular with films and TV series. Twilight was filmed in Portland (and surroundings) tons of commercials are being filmed all the time. Leverage, from TNT, is filmed in downtown Portland. I’ll share whatever we learn tomorrow with you! I’ll make sure to send you an email! 😉
