Lit­tle elf Lexi is the per­fect xmas model

Stratford Press - - News -

Lexi Ty­lah Buck­land was this year’s front page model and was an ab­so­lute dream to pho­to­graph!

At just three and a half months old she took the pho­to­shoot in her stride, hap­pily sleep­ing through most of it.

She is a lit­tle too small to be able to tell Santa what she would like to find un­der the tree on Christ­mas Day, but her par­ents say they would ap­pre­ci­ate a lit­tle bit more sleep per­haps!

Lexi is a much-loved lit­tle sis­ter to Kait­lyn and Jor­dyn, and third child of Cory Buck­land and Tracey Reynolds.

It was a case of Elf and Safety last week, when ed­i­tor Ilona Hanne spent a cou­ple of hours pho­tograph­ing Lexi for our front cover. With clear ideas on what shots we wanted, Ilona and her helpers got them­selves in a range of awk­ward and silly look­ing po­si­tions over the morn­ing. Ly­ing on the floor, stand­ing on ta­bles, up on tip­toes to hold a blan­ket in po­si­tion, wav­ing toys and mak­ing a range of coo­ing sounds, any­thing and ev­ery­thing was tried to get the per­fect shot!

Lexi was all smiles at the an­tics of the pho­tog­ra­pher.

Lexi was this year’s front page model for the Christ­mas edi­tion.
