Gillian Laub Photographs Toddlers & Tiaras
Gillian Laub photographs pageant princess MaKenzie Myers. Myers is, at age six, a four-year veteran of the pageant scene and a star on the controversial TLC show Toddlers & Tiaras. The spread is featured in an article on the show's depictions of skimpy costumes, temper tantrums, and pushy stage mom.
Laub photographed Myers at her family home in Montgomery, Louisiana. While she was napping when Laub arrived around midday, Myers soon woke up and the day turned manic as she modeled numerous pageant and casual outfits. Laubs says Myers was "very precocious" and that she forgot how young she was until the child had a few meltdowns during the shoot.
