The flair for fashion comes runs in the family, Reese has an brand called Rich Girl Candy. She says PJ works with her on her ideas and is enthusiastic about his modeling career.
“PJ has a love for modeling along with a huge and spunky personality,” his mom says. “When in front of the camera, he is poised and focused. It’s crazy because it isn’t his mom pushing PJ, it’s PJ pushing himself to model.”
She adds, “Being on set with PJ is a lot of fun, he loves to interact with people!”
“PJ’s style is super sporty, even when he has to wear a suit he tries to add a little flavor and put on sneakers,” Reese tells PEOPLE exclusively of her son, “He loves to wear bright colors, and stays on or in front of current fashion trends.”
Reese also said that PJ enjoys plenty of hobbies outside of modeling:
“PJ’s hobbies are playing basketball, soccer [and] puzzle games on his iPad, and going to the park,” Reese says.
He’s so cute.
People also shared a number of adorable snaps of PJ from his recent “shoot and draw” session for famed photographer James Anthony.
