Daddies don’t let your babies grow up to be cowgirls [Photo Shoot]

A conversation during the car ride to our photo shoot destination between the photographer, the model and our nine-year-old assistant/roadie.

“Here’s your motivation: You’re on the road, singing your songs in the lonely honky-tonks of the Southwest,” said the photographer.

“What’s a honky-tonk?” said the assistant/roadie.

“Um, it’s like a dance club for cowboys.”

“What’s that mean?” said our model.

“Nevermind,” said the photographer. “New motivation. You’re like Lady Gaga but with a guitar.”

“Oh, good” said our model.

Note to photographers: It’s important to know the frame of reference of your subject. Perception is key in photo shoot communication.

Also, my rendition of “Mommas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys” puts four-year-old girls to sleep by the second verse.
