She was a star.

We are home, completely without incident. Flights, shoot, hotel stays, everything went perfectly.

The shoot was such a crazy experience.

KayTar rocked it. It was amazing. She woke up yesterday at 5:30 having an asthma attack, hours before she needed to wake up and a most unpleasant start to her day. We got to the shoot at 9am and put in a NINE HOUR DAY. And she was an angel. A perfect little angel. Everyone complimented her behavior and what a trooper she was. The professionals said that even the kids who do this for a living can't hang in like she did. She kept everyone entertained and even played several rounds of hide and seek with the magazine employees. At one point she passed out on me, on set, during the shoot (I have a professional photo of it that I'll share later), but we woke her up and everyone on set worked to keep her happy and entertained and she lasted for the entire shoot. It really was something.

More photos and details to come soon!

Yahooo. Way to go little 'tar.
Kyla, I'm so glad everything worked out so well for you. What a confidence boost it must be to know that things can run smoothly.
(Although, take it from a momma of 6 kiddos, don't ever COUNT on it running smoothly. Even when you're not dealing with the issues you are, things rarely run smoothly!)
But, I'm sure glad you had a taste of success with this trip.
