We all know how hard it is to take a photo of hyper children. It becomes even harder when you want to come across as some super hip mum *ahem* who posts snaps of your children in their chic #ootd.

:: Outfits from H&M (all gifted) ::

:: Bieny in Bloom B, Bielet in H&M (both dresses gifted) ::

:: Outfits from Vietnam (gifted) ::

Heck, kids can even make 3 for $10 clothes look good!

Sometimes it takes five shots.

Other times ten.

:: No brand indicated on Bieny's dress, Bielet in H&M (both dresses gifted) ::

Or even twelve.

:: Dresses from England (gifted) ::

On the rare occasion, there are one hit wonders.

I used to do regular updates on Bielet's outfits (see WHW). When Bieny came along, I didn't start a WTW until this post, because as the second girl of the fam, she got the recycled threads. (Dear Bieny: Neh mind, Mama also second girl and I have brand new, nice, non-hand-me-downs now!) But I've actually been hoarding photos of the girls' lookbooks, and posting the best ones on instagram. A LOT of work went into that. Here are the top five because's:

1. Kids have moods

:: Dresses from Avenue Kids ::

:: Bielet in Gap tee, Bieny in Jumping Beans (gifted) ::

:: Bieny's clothes gifted (no brand indicated), Bielet in Fox Kids and Hush Puppies shorts ::

:: Dress from random pushcarts, dolls from Disneyland ::

2. Kids do not protect their modesty

No lifting your top, Bieny!

:: (Right) Bielet in Candy dress (gifted), Bieny in Carter's set (gifted) ::

Legs together please, Bielet...
:: (Both dresses gifted, with no brand indicated) ::

3. Kids cannot stay still, especially not at the same time

:: Bielet in Fox Kids tee and Candy capris (gifted), Bieny in Gap (gifted) ::

:: (All clothes gifted, with no brand indicated) ::

:: Bielet in Marc Jacobs skirt (gifted), Bieny in Oobi skirt ::

:: Outfits from Etsy ::

4. Kids have delicious digits

:: Bielet in Gap dress (gifted), Bieny in Jumping Beans top (pants gifted with no brand indicated), toys from Jellycats ::

:: Outfits from random pushcarts ::

:: Bieny's dress from Babydoll (gifted) ::

:: Bielet in Seed top (gifted), Bieny in Adidas tee (gifted) ::

5. Kids hate looking into the camera

Actually, this might have been a mid-sneeze LOL

:: Nike tees, pants from Mothercare and H&M all gifted ::

:: Bielet in Uniqlo Kids (gifted) and Cotton On Kids leggings, Bieny in Right Bank Babies vest, hairbands from Disneyland ::

:: Bieny in Sooki Baby, Bielet in tee from Disneyland (gifted) ::

:: Bielet in Babypixie dress ::

All dressed up for my Ah Yi's polka dot-themed party!
:: All gifted with no brands indicated, save Bieny's dotty Mothercare dress ::

:: Bieny in gifted dress (no brand indicated), Bielet in chambray dress with matching pouch from Grandchild ::

Basically, they think it's stupid that their parents are always behind the camera. So for good photos, maybe parents can try their back profile. These are, by far, the most successful photographs.

You reckon I posted enough photos to show my girls are budding models? Any kiddy clothing brands keen on sponsored posts?

Just kidding, my super chao bin Bielet!

Judging from all the credits that have been indicated as "gifted", I can safely say that my girls are blessed to have such generous aunties and uncles who shower them with new, pretty clothes. Thank you, you know who you are xoxo
