THIS! My heart. Thank you so much for your kind words and love! It touches my heart more than you know. I admit, sharing so much on the interwebs can at times be pretty daunting (eek!). There is certainly a fear of being misunderstood…but more than anything, the fulfillment, inspiration and humbling feeling that comes from your responses and feeling connected trumps all. It is a joy and is what makes what I do worthwhile. I try to just listen to the heart!
Also my birthday is December 3rd!!! It was last month. Thank you! I will! And Happy New Year!
Hi! Aw thank you so much for reaching out. We do love our apartment and feel really lucky! Unfortunately I don’t know of a realtor ; we found our place because our friends were living in one of the complex’s apartments (and we chased down the landlord and told him we wanted to move in as soon as a space opened up!). I’d say reaching out to friends (if you have some in the LA area) and seeing if you like their places, and if their places have any openings is a great way to get a feel for what’s out there. Best of luck to you! xoxo
Hi! Thank you so much! I typically just take photos with my iPhone, but occasionally I’ll slip in a few photos from my husband’s Sony camera (his camera is amazing). I use a filter called M5 on VSCO cam and also use Snapseed to toggle with the coloring by lowering contrast & shadows, yellowing greens, warming blues, etc. I hope that helps!
Hi! OK – you are NOT too old. I know that it can be intimidating to be a part of an industry that for so long has praised 14-15-16 year olds. I know the worries that come with being past the teenage life, like “maybe my time has passed” or “my hips are womanly now” or “my face isn’t as bright” however, youth does not always mean success, and most of all – every journey is completely different. There are models like Sasha Pivovarova who started at 23, Elsa Hosk who is 27, the list goes on. Being older also comes with wisdom, perspective, and time. Time to have developed the craft, or simply time to have a good head on your shoulders. I think 20 is a great age! The reason why agencies might lean more towards a younger crowd is because: more time to be developed = less chance of running out of time = more chance of hitting it big, or making money, for a longer period of time. It’s a business! But it’s also a gamble, and there are no rules. If you’re a great model, you’re a great model. Personality matters most. So, go for it, give it all you’ve got, and realize that you are still so young! Heck, you are younger than me 🙂
Hi! Would you like me to make a video or a post about my experience? I’ve been thinking about it for a while now. Not everyone may understand, but I think it could do a whole lot of good. All I want you to know is – It’s all going to be okay. Do what is right for you, right now. Not because you’re afraid of what others will think, not because you don’t want to “be different”. This is YOUR journey, and there are no rights or wrongs. And mostly – let me know if writing a post about this topic would help! Sending love to you. xo
