Let's face it, genetics plays an important part in this business. You can work out, eat all the right foods, and you're still stuck with the face God gave you. I always say: "I'm sure Mom's an earthling, but the older I get, the more I look like Jabba the Hutt!" (Of course, if I worked out and ate all the right things I might not look like Jabba, but whadda ya gonna do?)

Anyway, I got a call a few weeks ago from a model mom who was just sure her little boy would be a successful model. Actually I had met her son a few years earlier and unless things had really changed, I had to agree he was worth a look. Jamie showed up this weekend, Jane Pittman came over to do his makeup, and Eric Striffler and I had an opportunity to shoot a brief test with him. Things turned out pretty well and I'm forwarding some images on to a couple of agencies I work with who I think will be interested.

I took the opportunity to shoot a couple of shots of Jamie with his mom, you might see the family resemblance. By the time I shot this Jamie had been shooting for a couple of hours so he was pretty relaxed. His mom picked up on this photography thing pretty quick, of course it's always possible that appearing on the cover of Vogue a dozen times will do that for you.

Kim's a real beauty, inside and out. Jane Pittman did Kim's makeup often during her supermodel years, it was fun to be able to put those two together again for a few hours.

...unless you're completely blind. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] With her to guide and advise him, he should do well if he decides to pursue it. Kim looks super, better than ever, IMO. If you hadn't told us she's his Mom, I'd say she was his slightly older sister. Neat!

There is a lot to be said for pedigree... I'd also be willing to bet that Dad was a lottery winner as well.
Great post, Fish.
