Ellie and Maia Schifman

Spotted at: Yum! in St. Louis Park

These two look like they get their photo taken all the time! Ellie, 3, and Maia, 5, were enjoying a dinner of macaroni and cheese and green beans with their parents. The young fashionistas wore embroidered dresses from Mini Boden, the British retailer. Their boots were presents from their grammy. Working the camera? That's a gift you're just born with.
