WHAT FASHION MEANS TO ME? Fashion is a way I give myself confidence and empowerment. I like to express myself by trying different clothing and make-up looks to create different styles that express how I feel. Fashion is a great way to both self-express and self-discover. It’s empowering to be able to sew your own clothes and add embellishments to your original design. When you look your best you feel your best! It’s more than just a dress to impress. To me, fashion is ultimately what makes you feel good about who you are. Fashion is a statement!

By Michelle Elizabeth Photographer/Wardrobe: Deanie Couture (@deanie_couture)


Journie Muse is a 7 year old model who believes in herself despite being “Unique.” This adorable fair skinned African American child is the definition of unique beauty. Her strong will has allowed her the ability to embrace all she is with confidence. She has modeled in numerous forms of media and art. Journie’s parents feel the most important benefit of modeling is that it helped build her confidence despite being unusual. Her bubbly and friendly personality has led her to a great start in her early modeling career. Journie Muse has worked for some amazing companies as a Brand Rep, Child Influencer, and an Ambassador. She loves to sing, dance, and pose. Most of her skills in front of the camera come naturally. In fact, the only formal training she has in the field is a 6 week modeling class she attended at Advantage Talented Development in Franklin, TN. Even though she enjoys modeling for now, Journie wants to be a Special Needs Doctor when she grows up. What makes Journie Muse so different? She was born with a genetic disorder called Albinism. It is a rare group of genetic disorders that cause the skin, hair, or eyes to have little or no color. It is caused by a deficiency in one of several genes that produce or distribute. This deficiency may result in the absence of melanin production, or a reduced amount of melanin production. The abnormal gene can be passed down from either parent to the child and leads to albinism. It is an inherited disorder that’s present at birth. Children are at risk of being born with albinism if they have parents with albinism, or parents who carry the gene for albinism. According to the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation, about 1 in 18,000 to 20,000 people in the United States have a form of albinism. As an African American with Albinism, Journie is very much aware of her uniqueness. Her family has educated her and always have been upfront with her and supported her. Thankfully, Journie hasn’t experienced much bullying, however she is very bothered by how much people stare at her. For this little model, going out can KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 9


It’s almost as if she has to be in the mood to go out and deal with the staring. be a “Mood Thing.” Her Mom says, “It’s almost as if she has to be in the mood to go out and deal with the staring. Adults and teens seem to admire her unique beauty, however her peers mostly stare at her. She calms their curiosity with a smile and says “Hello my name is Journie, what’s your name?” All the staring makes Journie feel very uncomfortable. She constantly asks “Mom, don’t they know it’s not polite to stare?” Being a model with Albinism has been quite an adventure for Journie and her family. Some agents want her distinctive look and some do not. They have learned that when given her profile description, many agencies don’t really know how to represent her. Some have even mistaken her as a biracial child, so her Mom (and Manager) corrects them and educates them. Actually, most of Journie’s great opportunities come through Manager Mom’s hard work and dedication. When it comes to balancing her career, social life, and school, Journie explains, “Mommy balances everything. Structure and proper planning equals to balance.” In her free time, Journie likes to do gymnastics, have tablet time and cuddle with her parents. Journie’s favorite YouTube channel is The McClure twins. Her biggest role model is her mom and what inspires her is her Dad. She says, “He’s where I witness true confidence.” Education is very important to Journie Muse and she loves to go to school. Since she wants to be a doctor when she grows up, Journie looks forward to learning everything she can and understands how valuable education is. She can also be a social butterfly. She’s never afraid to approach her peers with a smile and enjoys playing and running around with her friends. Unfortunately, Covid-19 has affected Journie’s ability to connect with her peers in a classroom setting. Currently she is homeschooling and struggling with the lack of social interaction. 10 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021


Journie Muse is a girly girl. What she likes most about modeling is “the glam of getting ready for the photo shoot or runway etc.” She enjoys getting her hair and makeup done. The entire transformation simply thrills her! The biggest obstacle has been Journie’s vision impairment. Her Albinism developed into Ocular Albinism which causes partial vision loss and light sensitivity. If the lights shine too bright it can obscure her vision. To prevent this from happening, Manager Mom sets up a consultation with the photographer or lighting director to inform them of the issue. With a slight light dimming and using the “1-2-3 Technique” when shooting outside, Journie is able to nail every shoot! When she is shooting outside in the sun, Journie gets into her pose and closes her eyes. The photographer counts to three, and on THREE, Journie opens her eyes long enough for the photographer to snap the picture, then she closes her eyes again. This technique keeps Journie from squinting in the shot. Some of Journie’s favorite memories in her career so far have been working with Creative Soul Photography on their book release “GLORY” and working with Deanie Couture & Photography on the KidFash Top 10 Models. Also she’ll never forget when she was at the FabKids fashion show to end bullying and they gave her an award for “Kids who Make a Great Impact in their Community.” For other aspiring models Journie advises, “Be confident in yourself… Do not compare yourself to others, it will only bring distractions. Stay focused on your purpose.” Journie Muse believes that right now kids can make an impact on the world by being kind to others and to yourself. She says, “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” And if you get bullied, make sure to “Tell your parents, teachers or a responsible and trusting adult. If it happens again, take up for yourself by using your words.”

Be confident in yourself… Do not compare yourself to others, it will only bring distractions. Stay focused on your purpose.” KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 11

ROSSWOOD PHOTOGRAPHY By Michelle Elizabeth


Our Featured Photographer is the talented and unique Heather Furlow, the creative genius behind Rosswood Photography, located in Dallas, TX. She is hearing impaired, but that doesn’t stop her from reaching for her dreams. She admits that it can be very frustrating to be in a crowd of new people and struggle to keep up with conversations. So, occasionally there are missed opportunities. Furlow has always had a passion for photos. She says, “I learned early on… Capturing memories and people in their element was important.” As a teen, Heather’s dad gave her a professional camera with all the bells and whistles to practice with. Well actually, he gave her the instruction book for the camera first. He didn’t give her the actual camera until she signed off on knowing how to use it. The business came about after having children. It was a great way to express herself and capture memories with the kids. People loved the images of her kids and started asking her to take pictures for them. Word spread and Rosswood Photography grew from there. Furlow’s youngest child started modeling for boutiques all over the US and Canada and some of those owners blossomed into fashion designers. This led Heather down the path of editorial fashion photography with children and teens. To this day, it is still her favorite genre of photography to shoot. She loves “Everything that goes into it- from set styling to hair/makeup and clothes for the scene.” She generally shoots with how she plans on processing the image later. She says, “There lies the magic, editing and making the moment memorable.”

“There lies the magic, editing and making the moment memorable.”


When Furlow first started photography her style was “Super dreamy and artsy.” Gradually, she’s learned to shoot “More clearly and in depth straight out of the camera and just do minimal enhancements in editing.” Work/Life/Family balance was rough at first. Heather overextended herself in the beginning and struggled with time management. She advises, “Learn to say ‘NO.’ Some of your biggest struggles will come from doing things you know deep down you should have said ‘No’ to. I know my strengths now and my weaknesses so I have to stick to my guns and just refuse some things and that’s ok.” Furlow adds, “Never stop learning, and put people first. It’s not always just about business.” For this talented Mom, the best part of Photographing kids is “Connecting with them, bringing out their own individual personalities and quirks. The challenging part is the reluctant kid… maybe they were tired by the time they are to shoot, or maybe just had an overall bad day....it happens. What I do is stop everything, we put all of that aside and talk. Once you put them first and tackle the current issue/mood then you can move forward. It is amazing to watch a kid shine once they relax and gain that confidence in themselves and trust you.”

“Never stop learning, and put people first. It’s not always just about business.”�

26 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021


As a child, Heather had lots of earaches and was repeatedly treated for swimmers ear. When she was 11, the left side of her face was swollen so she went to a specialist who found a tumor in her left ear. That same day, she spent 8 hours in surgery. It was definitely a character building experience for her because she just started a new school and her head was totally wrapped in bandages. Over the next few years, she had multiple follow up surgeries and was introduced to hearing aides. She says, “Last thing I wanted in Middle School was to be different but my outgoing personality and sense of humor helped ease that transition of wearing them to my peers who had never seen a kid with hearing aides.” Her favorite subjects in school were English and History. History completely fascinated her. She says, “All the past struggles and obstacles people overcame...one

common thread throughout history is people coming together working together for change. Love it!” As for English, she had amazing teachers every year. When relaxing, Heather loves to sit in her swing in the backyard, feel the warmth on her face, watch nature, and just think. Some of her best ideas come from that. She grew up in the country and spent most of her childhood outside exploring. Furlow still gets inspired by exploring. She explains, “Life, everything around me inspires me. People, animals, places like a winding road in the country or sunset on the beach... all moments I want to freeze in time and remember always.”

“Life, everything around me inspires me. KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 27


Life is short, cherish the moments, enjoy the little things.” Heather’s role model is her Mom, who lost her 18 month battle with cancer in 1999. She explains, “She taught me so much about how to interact with others, listen to others and be there in the moment… She never ever complained about the struggles and pain she endured. She taught me strength and dignity and compassion for others. I like to think I carry that with me daily into my business and my interaction with people. Life is short, cherish the moments, enjoy the little things.” Rosswood Photography has big goals for the future. Furlow wants “To be featured in every magazine from People magazine to National Geographic! My dream is to one day bring back studio for everyone, not just fine art. I want to have my own venue one day with everything you need for that perfect picture on site.” Heather wants people to know that “When you live with hearing loss, it requires serious effort. People with ordinary hearing may not realize this because for them, hearing is automatic. When you're out with friends, or at a restaurant, it requires a lot more energy for those with hearing loss to understand others. It’s hard to make sense of distorted sounds or words in a conversation, and figure out appropriate ways of responding. This is mentally and physically exhausting. Louder is not always better. Clarity is not always provided by volume. The louder someone might talk, the more the words can get distorted. Just speak clearly and get their attention physically before you talk. Hearing aides do not work like glasses. Glasses turn fuzzy pictures into something clear and crisp that corrects your vision. Hearing aids do not equal getting


your ordinary hearing back… [It] helps amplify sounds but doesn’t always make them clearer.” Currently some hearing aids can’t distinguish between the voice of the speaker and the background noise, making it difficult to focus and understand.Also, even though facemasks are a great preventative measure during the Covid-19 Pandemic, it is very frustrating for people like Heather who rely on lip-reading to help understand what people are saying to her.

Furlow recommends the following tips to ease communication with a person who has hearing impairment:

- Reduce background noise - Get their attention before you speak - Face them when talking - Don’t cover your mouth or eat when talking - Talk slowly and clearly, not loudly - Ask them if they have understood, and let them talk for themselves - Don't walk and talk KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 29

Your

Education

By Michelle Elizabeth (michelleelizabethofficial@gmail.com) Photographer: Greg Collins (@greg.collins.photo


“Demand your education, whether in or outside of school!” Those words spoken by his high school principal made quite an impression on Curtis Lawrence, III. He’s an average 16 year old boy who has accomplished some extraordinary things and wants to help other kids follow his lead. Many stories have been written about him and he’s even been on The Steve Harvey Show. Currently, Curtis is dually enrolled as a high school senior at School Without Walls and attending college full-time at George Washington University. Currently a Liberal Arts sophomore, in the fall Curtis will declare a major in Biology with a double minor in Computer Science and Mandarin. Why Mandarin? Since he wants to be a Paleontologist and with the recent major discoveries made in China, continuing his fluency in Mandarin will give Curtis an advantage in the geosciences. Interested in fossils and animals since he was a toddler, Curtis’ parents encouraged his interest through numerous trips to museums and national parks. Curtis became certain of his career choice at 10 when he volunteered with the Dinosaur George Travelling Museum in San Antonio, TX. After spending hours with fossils, he knew that he wanted to be in paleontology for life. He jokes, “people used to say, ‘he likes dinosaurs, that's so nice... but he'll probably grow out of it,’ however since my parents immersed me in my passion, that passion became my career goal.” In fact, his lifetime goal is to become the 4th Black Paleontologist. For the immediate future, he plans to continue his studies straight through college and earn his PhD in Paleontology by 22 or 23. He also hopes to inspire other youth from underserved communities to follow their STEM dreams. He’s already inspired his younger brother, Corey to shoot for the stars, literally. Corey has a passion for astronomy and as a high school sophomore with a 4.0 GPA, is similarly on the path for early college success. He speaks Spanish, practices Capoeira, and plays the djembe drums and guitar… and as a career goal, wants to be an astrophysicist at NASA.

“Demand your education, whether in or outside of school!”


For the Lawrences, education is a family affair. Both parents have taught for over 20 years: Mom, a K-8th Grade literacy specialist and Dad taught middle school history and is now a Secondary School Principal. Since they are adept at identifying and nurturing a child’s natural gifts, they applied the same process with their own children. Both parents read to their children every day since utero, and although Curtis was a preemie (born 4lbs 3oz at 33 weeks), he didn't show any delays and was actually quite advanced. When Corey was born 16 months later the Lawrences replicated everything they did with Curtis to ensure Corey’s academic trajectory. Making learning the center of their lives, they played jazz and classical music and immersed the boys in books, educational DVD’s, puzzles, and strategy games. Mom taught both sons how to read by age 42 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021

two and the family cars even became "mobile class, rooms" stocked with books, flashcards on rings, puzzles, and workbooks. Frequenting local bookstores and introducing them to professionals in the STEM fields provided extra enrichment to further nurture Curtis’ paleo passion and Corey’s love of astronomy. Succeeding in college has been easy for Curtis since his previous education prepared him for the rigors and challenges. He started off at Kiddie College, a small home-based pre-school where he learned penmanship, math, and critical thinking. Next was elementary school at TAG Young Scholars, one of New York City's top public Gifted schools. Eventually, he joined the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Jr where he participated in the national MathCounts Competition. When he was in 7th Grade (at 10 years old) he took the


“There are so many positive teens and smart young adults out there being change agents in their communities.” SAT, and upon receiving State recognition and a merit scholarship was accepted into Duke TIP (Talent Identification Program) giving him the opportunity to take a summer class and live on campus at Trinity University. Being homeschooled for 8th Grade then gave Curtis the opportunity to take his second college class at the University of Texas San Antonio when he was just 11 years old. When his father’s career relocated the family to Washington, DC, 12-year-old Curtis started high school at School Without Walls, a public magnet school located on the campus of George Washington University. The rigorous liberal arts curriculum combined with the college-prep STEM programs in NSBE challenged him. Participating in extracurricular activities such as Capoeira, Math Competitions, FIRST and VEX Robotics and playing piano prepared Curtis for adjusting to the demands of college life. His favorite part of college so far has been working in the geology lab researching and identifying fossils of a new dinosaur found by his paleontology professor, Dr. Catherine Forster. Using time management tools like Google calendar and a giant 60-day wall planner helps Curtis stay organized through it all.

At the end of 10th grade, Curtis and 14 other students were accepted into the highly selective Early College Program with George Washington University which led him to become the youngest ever full-time GWU Freshman at 14 years old. Currently, Curtis is two years younger than his high school peers with most of his friends being about three years older. His best friend however is his brother Corey. He says, “Not only is Corey smart and compassionate of others, he’s also quite witty. It's great having a brother who equally enjoys learning and thinks math, robotics, and watching the Sci Fi or National Geographic Channel are cool.” They even give each other moral support with late night talks or gaming together for hours to decompress from the rigors of school. Inspired by his family’s commitment to education, Curtis enjoys promoting STEM in underserved communities, and seeing grassroots initiatives that help solve social problems. Curtis recently participated in a few "Get Out the Vote" projects that got him excited. He says, “There are so many positive teens and smart young adults out there being change agents in their communities.” KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 43


“My father is the most respectful, kind and loving man I know who is committed to academic excellence and always puts God first.” His biggest role model is his father because of his great morals, integrity, and character. “My father is the most respectful, kind and loving man I know who is committed to academic excellence and always puts God first.” Growing up Curtis saw his Dad encourage and mentor his own students. He set high expectations for them and always held them accountable for their greatness. Many of those former middle school students have become successful professionals, yet they still look to him for advice. 44 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021

With a belief that education opens the doors to a lifetime of opportunities, Curtis shared that there are many teens who don’t take their education seriously. “Just like putting effort into getting the top gaming scores,” Curtis explains, “kids can use that same effort to excel as a student athlete, playing an instrument or being a social entrepreneur.” He advises that no matter how young you are or what obstacles you face, you should always set high expectations for yourself and be accountable. Through volunteering and his STEM


outreach, Curtis has observed that some parents have good intentions but lack the knowledge, access to resources, or finances to best support or advocate for their children. The Lawrence brothers have always attended public schools and their parents have consistently reinforced their education with enrichment activities. Dad shares that there are plenty of enrichment programs that support every child's passion and parents should "look into college prep programs like Dr. Cynthia Colon's Dream College Academy and community-based mentoring programs, through religious and civic organizations, or those like NSBE, KEL Alpha

RISING

Young starlet Lexi Rabe won over the hearts of America with her now famous line “I Love You 3,000” from her role as Morgan Stark in Avengers: Endgame. However, it is her sweet demeanor and dedication to her career that continues to catapult Lexi onto the screen and KIDFASH checks in to see how. Growing up with a family very involved in production, Lexi is no stranger to being around a set. It was during the filming of a pilot for her siblings that she first expressed an interest in following in the family footsteps and began her path to stardom. Her first formal auditions were for the films Godzilla and then of course, Avengers: Endgame. Lexi says working with Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of the amazing cast and crew was a dream. He’s definitely Lexi’s favorite stage dad.

Her hard work and

positive attitude have allowed her to shine in those opportune moments...

For Lexi it came naturally, her delivery and emotional maturity are main features that have led to her authenticity for the roles she has played. Her family commonly played fun acting exercises together which helped hone her craft. Playing Morgan Stark in Avengers: Endgame has been a pivotal role for Lexi and given her many great opportunities. Her hard work and positive attitude have allowed her to shine in those opportune moments, charming the directors as she turns on her charm and flashes that smile. One thing that has been very important to her with the success along the way is building a platform and advocating for those who don’t have a voice, especially when it comes to bullying. However, Lexi is just like any other kid — She goes to school, has chores and hangs out with her friends and family. She is from a huge family, including five grown siblings who were taken in and cared for at various stages of their lives after dealing with hardship in their own lives. Lexi loves spending as much time as she can with them, especially during the holidays.

During quarantine, Lexi has had time for her favorite hobbies such as dance, gymnastics, karate and her new hobby, horseback riding. Lexi really enjoys online schooling — While she manages to get through her coursework quickly, she really loves to be able to go at her own pace… in her pajamas. Her favorite subject is science. She loves all the experiments. Lexi’s first love is her passion for the arts, if she wasn’t acting she’d be directing. She also has a heart for marine life and would love to work with animals. When she’s not busy with school or acting, she enjoy traveling and taking family vacations and looks forward to being able to do that more. Lexi loves to travel and was most recently in Saudi Arabia. She would really like to travel to Morocco and Europe next. The success of her films and career hasn't change Lexi at all — She’s still the same bright, young girl who enjoys the same things as every other little girl in the world. Look out for Lexi’s upcoming movie, Silk Road, with Alexandra Shipp and Nick Robinson, premiering this spring.

featured boutique

J+K Kids Supply By: Gianna Simonelli Photographer: Shea Anne (@sheaannephotos)


“Even as a little girl, I would light up when my mom would tell me we were having a yard sale.” J+K Kids Supply is both an online and brick-and-mortar boutique that offers high quality, age-appropriate clothing, which is curated to foster confidence in and inspire girls, tweens, and teens. This vintage-inspired, trendy boutique was years in the making, and a long-time dream come true for its founder Dana. Dana understood her passion for the retail industry from an extremely young age, and pursued her natural talent in sales throughout the course of her life. She recalls, “Even as a little girl, I would light up when my mom would tell me we were having a yard sale.” Dana’s career trajectory may have begun with door-to-door sales tactics in her neighborhood as a child, but eventually evolved into her selling products in local shops with her friends during college. She encourages other young curators and retail professionals to lead with the same hard work, dedication, and perseverance she has practiced. After college graduation, Dana practiced physical therapy full-time and continued to rent spaces in multiple storefronts to fulfill her love for retail. Once she became a mother, she took a break from these endeavors but never lost sight of her end goal: a boutique of her own. In fact, her boutique’s moniker, J+K, pays homage to Dana’s two children, 12-year-old Jake and 10-year-old Kate. Today, it is home to a curated selection of clothing that can include all things from vintage denim and statement pieces with painting, vintage buttons, broaches, or patches, to jean jackets, graphic tees, athletic wear and accessories.

KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 67


Although the daily grind of managing a business can impede on the creative process, Dana advises aspiring designers to designate a space or activity to let your thoughts flow and mind process new ideas. Dana’s work ethic, management skills, and creativity built a strong foundation to obtain her dream job. She shares, “I would dream of one day having a boutique on Main Street, but it just seemed impossible with a full-time job and two kids. Fast forward and here I am… living out my dream! I am honestly so blessed and thankful that I get to do this every day.”

“I would dream of one day having a boutique on Main Street,


I am very PASSIONATE about b uilding relationships with the brands we carry.

J+K’s success can be partially attributed towards Dana’s emphasis on community building and supporting other brands. She aims to collaborate with either a local company or up-and-coming screen printer on a limited edition line of clothing staples—t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and accessories—each season. In the future, J+K hopes to work closely with other small brands, creatives, and makers who specialize in unique, limited batch clothing. According to Dana, “I am very PASSIONATE about building relationships with the brands we carry. I think supporting each other is the only way we can all make it in these crazy times.” Speaking of crazy times, Dana looks at the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic with an optimistic perspective, and has used it as an opportunity to think outside the box, develop her brand relationships, and build her brand. During the new year, J+K is excited to work with local photographers on styled photoshoots and new brands to bring in new, one-of-a-kind pieces. J+K Kids Supply is located both online at www.jkkidssupply.com and in downtown Frisco, Texas at 6991 Pecan Street, Suite 300, and has a wide variety of brands to choose from, including MIA New York, Habitual Girl, Hannah Banana, Candy Pink Girls, Iscream, Truly Me, Vintage Havana, Henny and Coco, Funnel Cake Tree, Gunner and Lux, ME.N.U., Pink Chicken NYC, Splendid Kids, Tractr, and more!

Education is important to me because it gives us a knowledge of the world, and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view of things in life. Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. Education shows me a sense of hard work, at the same time, helps me grow and develop.

Twin Starlets

&

By: Jennifer Pucci Starr Photographer: Arezoo Jalali (@arezoojalali_photography)


Influencer duo, sisters, London and Sedona Fuller (@londonandsedona) have been showcasing their talents since they were just 3 months old. Starting their career with commercials, the girls quickly moved to the big screen most recently with a role appearing alongside Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly’s daughter in the film Bombshell. They now wow their fans not only on the screen, but through their social media as well as their YouTube Channel YouTube.com/LondonAndSedona. KIDFASH spoke with the two, and mom, Alexis, to discuss the path that led to their successful career and what insight they can share for other young actresses looking to follow a similar direction.

Yet behavior on a set as a baby or young child, of course, is not always predictable. “I definitely have to keep them in line. Obviously as young children, they can be a little wild because they can be in their own little world of fun,” says Alexis. “But we try to instill in them the importance of being professional and understanding that everyone on set has a job to do. They now take things seriously but also have fun at the same time.”

When they got their start, they were just babies, and their first shoot was a commercial with mom, who has also acted and modeled, so the lifestyle came naturally. “However, they did get to a time as toddlers where they didn’t want to be around strangers, so we stopped for a while,” says Alexis. “The other benefit of them starting Girls Will Be Girls at such a young age, they don’t see their acting success People have always been drawn to their energy and as defining them, which as a parent to young actresses when they’re together their energy on camera shines. is the best you can hope for.” The starlets may be naturals in front of the camera, but of course they are little girls first, and mom stresses the importance of allowing that to happen! “Having started acting since they were so young, being on a set has always been comfortable and not unusual for them,” says Alexis. “It has definitely always been something that, as long as they enjoy it, we would help make it happen.”

“It has definitely always been something that, as long as they enjoy it, we would help make it happen.”

KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021 83


As is typical with twin actors, they have done many roles together, however as they get older that will not always be the case. “With babies and young kids, a lot of projects want twins because of the work restrictions on kids. They can have you on set longer as twins. It helps maximize the time on set.” So, it was very beneficial then because they could both play the same character. Now that they’re a little older there’s not as many roles for twins.”

Lessons for a Lifetime Many of the skills the girls have learned, can also be invaluable lessons that any young person can apply to being successful in a career. Being so young when they got their start, they first had to learn to memorize lines by listening to audio recordings over and over. “At a very young age they became very skilled at memorization, which I think has helped them in their regular lives as well as acting,” says Alexis. “They have also learned how to present themselves and walk into a room with confidence. They’ve never really been nervous for anything. I’m so glad we’ve been able to give them that gift.” Of course, maintaining an education is also very important for the twins and mom makes sure they stay on task. “I feel like we still get to learn a lot in school. We do school on set. Our regular teacher sends the work with us and we do it with the set teacher. We must be very organized and self-motivated. We take breaks from learning lines to do homework. And then we take breaks from homework to learn lines. It’s all about time management.”

“They have also learned how to present themselves and walk into a room with confidence.” 84 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021

For many young actors, their first manager, coach or inspiration comes from a parent. For the girls, Alexis, has taken the lead in their training. “I did a little modeling and acting, and I have a degree in theater. So, it’s been fun to work with them over the years. But it’s also difficult because I’m their mom and they don’t always want to listen to their mom. So, there’s a fine line between coaching them and driving them nuts. I work with them so much that I know what they need to work on. They’re finally getting to an age where they can understand character development and empathy. That’s been a fun thing for me to do with them.


“We stress the importance of being professional...” They have also learned that being professional and doing a job is as important to their career as it is to others. This a level of responsibility that many do not learn until much older and advanced in a career. “We stress the importance of being professional and that everyone, all the many different people, support their families by having filming be done on time without delays. They understand they need to be prepared as the entire crew depends on them.”

Learning from Others Working on a variety of great shows and films with some of the best in the business is also a bonus for a young actor. Many times, these seasoned professionals will lend some words of advice or guide them to correct small techniques. The twins have wonderful things to say about many of the co-stars they have shared screens with. “Julie Bowen gave us great advice when we worked on Modern Family,” says London. “She told us that as an actress, we get paid to stand around and wait. We know she was joking, but it’s sometimes true. You can sometimes stand around all day for your part. And it takes an entire day to film a scene. Like my part in Captain Marvel! But that was still super fun because I just played at the beach all day. Usually the director can help a lot. In Bombshell, Jay Roach really helped me with how to look only surprised and then quickly scared.” Mom has also involved other people when she felt like they needed more help. “My former acting coach, Dennis LaValle, has done many private sessions with them,” says Alexis. “They took acting classes for a while, which we thought was important to get peer reactions and understanding how other kids work.” They also draw a lot of inspiration from other young actresses. “We learned a ton from McKenna Grace,” says London. “She’s so cool and such a good actress. She’s also a good friend. McKenna works hard at her acting skills. Her emotions are genuine and she’s very nice. We also love, love, love, the actors on Alexa & Katie, their names are Paris Berelc and Isabel May.”


“The girls really put their heart into it and loved just working together from home,”

However, it’s not only their television co-stars. They follow quite a lot of online stars too and gain insight from those role models as well. “I love InquisitorMaster on YouTube,” says Sedona. “She is super girly but also super dark. She’s got both sides. It’s good to have both the industry being shut down.” “We love doing the sides and be who you are. And I’m the same way. She’s unboxing videos,” says Sedona. “Our favorite things to also very funny.” unwrap are the clothes and toy boxes. The Poopsy Slime unboxing videos were the most fun.”

Making Good Use of Time

As we have all learned this past year, things can change in an instant. With COVID and quarantining, the industry was in a sort of holding pattern. However, the girls took this time to hone their online talents as they put more effort into their Instagram endorsements and YouTube Channel. “The girls really put their heart into it and loved just working together from home,” says Alexis. “They had started watching YouTube videos on their own, so it was cute to watch them observe what they saw and apply it to their own channel. It has allowed them to keep developing creativity even with 86 KidFashMagazine.com/January 2021

It’s been a learning experience for them too! “We help our dad edit the videos too,” says Sedona. “We’ve learned so much about editing. Like changing the speed and the music in the background. There are stickers on them, and we get to choose them. You should definitely watch them!” London has even taken her interest and created a channel specifically around her favorite online dress up simulator called Gacha Life.”I have my own YouTube channel just for my Gacha Life videos,” says London. “I love editing because you can do whatever you want. You can control the image and the way people talk. Our acting has taught us a new hobby of directing and editing.”


.... We are all anticipating how the world will change forever after COVID, and the acting world may see some new pattern as well. The girls are eager to get back to work but can speculate on how things may change. “We’re super used to home auditions now,” says Sedona. “We can make lots of mistakes and we know they will be edited out. It might make it harder to memorize lines now. I think we’ll be able to get back to normal in no time though.”

“We can make lots of mistakes and we know they will be edited out. It might make it hard to memorize lines now. I think we’ll be able to get back to normal in no time though.”

“I think Casting Directors will want to go back into the audition room because it will be easier to see it in person and meet people,” says London. But I don’t think it will be forever. Everything was slowed down because of Covid-19 but we have had so many auditions lately. Doing auditions from home has been great! But sometimes it isn’t as fun because we want to be able to see the people there. And show them our personalities.” Final words of encouragement from the girls to others, “try your best and you’ll succeed. Good luck!”
