It’s been one year since I began my journey in modeling. I started off doing “sexy” shoots. You know… the ones where the photographers make inappropriate comments and advances toward you. But I was getting the likes and followers that I wanted… so I kept doing it. Looking back, I’m not necessarily ashamed of any of it, but I do wish I had gone about it differently.
~Ladies, don’t let anyone think you have to show your ass in order to succeed. You’re only holding yourself back~
As I reached the end of 2019, I took a look at all my photos. I noticed a theme. A theme that in no way represents me as a person or the model I am striving to be. So, I decided to announce a change that many people voiced they didn’t like. Lost some followers but gained power and confidence in my decision.
When I shared my disappointment in myself and my page, Scott was quick to encourage and reassure me. I told him I’ve been wanting to represent my masculine side. Shortly after began a 3 day visit in a tiny Airbnb in Marietta. We talked about what I was going for. He listened to my desires and concepts, threw in a few of his own, and we worked on making them come to life.
It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re both buzzing with ideas. Setting one thing up then doing something completely different, then loving it even more than the original thought. The more we shot over the course of those 3 days, the more comfortable and sure I became.
This is it. This is what I’ve been wanting.
So, I’m coming into 2020 with a new focus. It is only the beginning. I’m beyond grateful to everyone who has stuck around and continues to do so. I’m excited for what’s next.
