Model Has Portfolio Outdone By His Toddler Nephew Recreating His Pics
While most of our writers are stuffing themselves with holiday cheer, we thought we would share some of our more memorable stories from recent months.
We've seen the fun recreations of old family photographs where 30 and 40 somethings try to copy their poses from the '80s and '90s of them in the old tubs, tree houses, pyramids, etc. They're perfect for a good chuckle. Their effort in making the photos as close to perfect is duly noted.
A new kind of photography copying has found a home on a new Instagram page called babyandthebody.
Model Aristotle Polites (check out his own Instagram page) hasn't gone back in time to mirror his older pictures, but instead has found some competition in the modeling world from his nephew Augie. The 18-month old son of sister Katina takes to the camera just as well as his uncle.
It started months ago when Augie's mom couldn’t get him into a plaid button-up shirt.
“The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she told HuffPost. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”
The pics were a hit with the family so they decided to do some exploration into the model's pics and add to the @babyandthebody. Some of the pics look like Aristotle may be mirroring Augie instead, making the account even more fun to follow.
Here are a few of our favorite pics from the Instagram account starting off with the one that started it all. In some of them, we're still trying to figure out which one wore it best.
