Rebuilding a modeling portfolio is a process, especially after 15 years of success as a “brunette” brand.

Hair and makeup by the Internationally-renowned Livio Angileri.

Many people know me from way back, when I was blondish. Not entirely blonde, just enough to soften my hard edges (whether they were real or imagined). 

After my short brunette pixie look caught on my modeling agency was against any changes, with good reason. I was working photoshoots every day, recognized by big brands, casting directors and photographers. A model works years to build a portfolio around a particular look and there’s a point where we need to ride the wave.

I was fortunate in my first career, but it’s time change it up, and now my passion for technology has allowed me a second successful career… Which means I get to look any way I darn well please!

Goodbye Quirky Pixie… Helloooo Empowered Blondie!

I had a photoshoot with a fabulous team recently and they turned my Joe Dirt-style mullet into Calvin Klein circa 1980s. I love this classicly styled portrait. 

Details, as always, are shared on my Facebook along with a few Ziggy Stardust jokes.

Models need to shoot “digital polaroids” every few months to show clients how they really look. They’re also the type of pics to snap when submitting to agencies for representation.

It’s important not to retouch, to have a clean no-makeup face and show all angles of your face. Agencies post these online for clients to reference how the model looks in person. You’d better look exactly like your digis when you walk through the door!

Here are my new digi polas, requested for a job in Paris. What do you think?

We’re raised in households where we celebrate children growing up and then one day *kabam* the world decides we’re getting old and heckles us with senility jokes.

The age of 30 seems to be that pivot point, hence the “29 Forever” phrase all adults throw around. Is this what we want to instill in our youth about their fates, that there’re only 29 good years in store?

I’m not without a sense of humor, but finding our intended path in life is hard enough without a timer ticking down the moment we’re hitting our stride. 

So, on this birth day of mine I celebrate all I’ve learned, all I’ve accomplished and the potential of my future.

Birthday’s aren’t a time to judge, it’s a day to reflect and accept that change is happening… in whatever way you choose to shape it.

It’s as if Raybans have a 5-on/10-off fashion lifecycle… a half decade hot, then a decade not. Late 80’s yes, but in the late 90’s they felt outdated. 

Guess they’re back in fashion, cuz a model friend was wearing this pair that conveniently folded down to fit in her tiny pocket. I borrowed, I posed, and I must have a pair!

From an angle, this frame shape looks good on everyone.

Model Tip: turning your head at a slight angle to the camera is more forgiving than shooting straight-on.

 INSURE YOUR PET NOW. YOU’RE JUST A CLICK AWAY  

Milo & I were playing ball on this beautiful Fall Sunday when we heard the terrible sound of a car crash as it drove up the street that splits the school park from the playground. A dog owner began frantically running towards the street yelling for her dog. On instinct, her golden labrador struggled to roll to its feet and get out of the road, getting one good limp in before collapsing on the grassy curb. He’d been hit.

As I write this I cry. That poor, beautiful animal. Humans were to blame.

He hadn’t done anything wrong. He was excited to be out on a sunny day with his sibling; they were two golden labs, maybe three or four years old. They didn’t know the park bordered a street that was preceded by a blind curve. They couldn’t leash themselves. A dog’s instinct is to Keep Reading »

Thought I’d start a #MommyMonday tag with this Macy’s ad, even though I’m a Rent-A-Mom.
Sometimes the parents seem a little too happy to drop their kids in my lap and get a few hours to themselves!
