so i have never really modeled professionally. i have always done with for my best friend ali. thats how our friendship started really. and when i went to FIT i helped out a few photography students by modeling. and here and there for other things. i dont think iv ever been paid or even compensated really. but since now im getting a bit older, and i dont want to just work at trader joes forever, iv really been playing with the idea of doing this for a living. or at least so i can have some extra cash flowing in.
im almost certain i can at least get one job, i kinda know what im doing.. i dont really have the hight (only 5.5"... 5.6" if i feel like telling a white lie) but i think i have the look. so im currently trying to put together my own portfolio (is that what they call it in the modeling world? i wasent sure..seems right to me..) consisting of some of alis photographes..and well thats really all i have.
so a friend of a friend who i recently met, names sandra savic, is a photographer, she worked for next modeling agency at one point, and so she helped me out! well we kinda helped each other out (shes going to be using a photo or two that we took last night in a show she has coming up!) and ww shot about 600 photos last night!
it was a really fun experience. got my hair all done up by my friend kristin, i styled the whole thing with clothing from my personal wardrobe, and well it was just really fun. and i think these shots will really help my portfolio have more of a fashion side to it.
here are just a few shots, we are in the process of narrowing them down and doing a bit of touching up.
sandra is going away for a couple of weeks, but when she gets back we have some more shoots planned, more of an outdoorsy thing, posing in front of a beautiful vintage volkswagon bug she owns (which is for sale and which im now really hoping i can buy from her once i get paid from modeling..its a vicious circle!)
