Quiz time: How amazing are your Instagram photos? Would you say your skills are on a Calvin Harris level? Or maybe your selfie game is so on point it rivals Kim Kardashian’s Insta appearances with her mini me, North West? If so, we must say we’re impressed, buuut no matter how great your snaps are, nine-year-old Regina Wyllie can likely kick your butt in the photography department. Yes, she’s nine. #SorryNotSorry
The pint-sized photography buff may be young, but she has already made quite a name for herself in her Scottish hometown of Ayrshire as both a wedding and event photog. And with good reason, too! Just take a look at the stunning bridal shot above and try not to be blown away.
She also captures sweet, unplanned moments too. Now, that’s a sign of a pro.
Starting her career at three — THREE!!! — years old, Regina was bitten by the photography bug when she first accompanied her dad, Kevin Wyllie (who just so happens to own KSG Photography), on assignment to a mountain bike race. She then began tagging along to all kinds of shoots and, between her cute smile and undeniable talent, she soon charmed her way into clients’ hearts, who specifically request that she join her dad when they hire KSG Photography.
When she was just seven years old, one of her photos was actually selected to appear in a campaign over her father’s snap. Soon after that, the same thing happened again. Kevin was on assignment for a local mag, but it was his daughter’s photo that ended up being selected for print. Wowza! She’s achieved so much in so little time, we can’t even image where she’ll be in five years.
The young shutterbug has even managed to catch the eye of some major rock stars. While snapping photos at Rod Stewart’s pre-concert party, guests couldn’t help but strike a pose with the budding photographer. We’re seriously impressed… not to mention we’d hire her in a heartbeat. Keep rocking, Regina!
