I am not a Girl!!

Uploaded: July 28, 2006


Little Chayton always gets mistaken for a cute little girl because of his curly locks, poor little guy.

hehehehe . . . when I was little I always got mistaken for a boy cause Mom kept my hair cut short cause it was too hard to manage other wise . . . well that and I was usually playing in the dirt somewhere.

But even with the curls I think Chayton still has a boyish look about him. When he gets older the curls will be what attracts the girls . . .well that and the fact he's so incredibly cute (LOL). Excellent capture too by the way. #492702

I knew a lady once who refused to cut her son's curly hair and the poor kid was probably 5 or so and still being mistaken for a girl. Cute shot! #3093561

Lol, Daniel, my youngest son had the same problem, no matter how I dressed him. These little guys are just too cute! Wonderful portrait. Beautiful tones and lighting. And those eyes just reach out and grab you! Excellent work.

My poor brother had the same problem when he was little because of his curls.
I had the curls from the day I was born & I'm pretty sure I was mistaken a couple of times as a boy when I was a teenager. I was a tomboy back then & pretty much flat in the front. LOL
I can't say that anymore but I can relate to your little guy.
Great capture of his sweetness Daniel! #3094444

I am sooo cracking up at your caption! My son also had that issue - I finally cut his hair when he was 1 (it was already long enough to be in a pony tail, if he HAD been a girl!) so he never knew the pain of mistaken identity.. :-) What's up with people though? He always had on BOY clothing?! Wonderful image of your little boy Daniel - he is beautiful! (I mean handsome?!) #3098020

My son have really a curled hair. When he was little - he hate it and he always wanted to wear a cap - now he is 26 and accept it :0)) #3099389
