Mini Style Hacker is a photo project by Valencia, California-based mother Collette Wixom. She dresses her adorable 4-year-old son Ryker in stylish attire and takes pictures of him recreating popular fashion photos “to show other parents how they could do the same.” You can view more photos of young Ryker being a fashionable rockstar on Instagram, Facebook, and the official Mini Style Hacker website.
Ryker, who is featured in most of my photos, is 4 and is not a model or an actor. He is a regular kid who does regular kid things. I am able to get him to “pose” by making it fun for him. We use our imaginations a ton and have a great time while doing so. If you see him with his hands in his pockets, he is holstering his imaginary laser guns. If you see him leaning against a wall, he is trying to push it over with his body weight. If your child hates having their picture taken, give imaginative play a try!
