Micah Quinones has not even had his first birthday and he’s already made a name for himself in the fashion world.

It helps that the American toddler, who at 11 months has an impressive number of Instagram followers, has a mom who’s a model. Amanda Booth used to take him along to her photo shoots where he was soon spotted by talent scouts and signed up with his mom’s agency. Amanda, who has appeared in campaigns for among others brand such as Target, Old Navy and Lancôme, shares photos of Micah on her Instagram page which has more than 57 000 followers. If the exposure her son is getting is anything to go by he could well follow in her footsteps. Micah was three months old when Amanda and her husband discovered he’d been born with Down’s syndrome. She told ABC News in America that while her first year as a mom had been challenging she couldn’t imagine a life without Micah. She said it was one of the most incredible experiences when he looked her in the eye. “He just looks into my soul,” she said.
