Day 57

Can anyone guess what she was auditioning for by the hairstyle alone? She was all starry eyed as she waited for her name to be called. She was looking over at a friend we knew who came from 2 hours away!

We had a great day, auditioning is great experience. You learn how to prepare, take something serious, and follow directions! So funny as she walked in (being the youngest of 3), the director asked if she was related to our oldest. "Yes!" She said, "She's my sister!" Who knew she had worked with our oldest when she was 10 (6 yrs ago). That was fun.. on our little one sang, and she was happy with her first song anyway. :) The second she messed up a bit, but all in all, a great audition!

Thanks! I put a cool action on her face, I loved how it bounced the light off of her, but now it made the hands all dirty looking..oh well...

Amanda said...

Auditions were always full of excitement! She looks beautiful!!!

Misty said...

Both are great photos! How exciting. Her hair looks like Gretel on The Sound of Music.

I'm thinking Sound of Music...I LOVE that musical!! Such a cute shot of her both sitting and waiting and then getting ready to go in!

Kara said...

Yay! Misty guessed first.. how could you not, right? LOL She would love Gretl in the Sound of Music, but probably is more Marta age wise. Lots of kids, and huge theater.. we won't know for a while. This was the very first day.. she loved it, though! Thank you for the nice comments!

Kara said...

oh, and she dressed herself and designed her hair herself. :) I almost stepped in, but thought.. 3rd kid, it's not worth it - if they like her fine, if not, fine! LOL

Tracy said...

Just love that second photo and the mood it creates! Hope she gets the part!

Kristin said...

She is beautiful! I love the look on her face in the first photo and the sharpness of the shot with such great DOF. The second photo made me feel like I was right there with her ready to go into that room and watch her do her stuff. I'll keep my fingers crossed for her.

Carrie said...

Oh auditions are so exciting. My stomach's churning thinking about it. Her hair looks precious.

Both pictures are beautiful- good luck to her!

How exciting - glad she went for something she wanted to go for. :)

Karin said...

Such a pretty picture of her! Were you the one who did her hair like that? It is beautiful.

Both of these are amazing. I'm not sure, but I think I like the second one more; like one of the previous posters said, it makes me feel like I'm right there with her. GREAT JOB!!

Tracy said...

I am thinking Heidi or Sound of Music?

Congrats on the call back! Love the light above.

Kara said...

Yes, Sound of Music. :) I tried to answer some people back, but they have "no-reply" when it chimes into my email. Some do, some go to their emails. Wonder why it's different on some?

The Clip Cafe said...

Gorgeous!! It depends if people have their emails linked to their profile. Some people don't even realize too.

Catherine said...

LOVE Sound of Music! Did she get it? Why did "oldest" not audition, too? Email me...miss you! Catching up on your photos before church.
