Tell us briefly about your modeling career and what has come out of it.
I love modeling! It’s fun, relaxing, and brings out your creativity; it’s every girls dream! You get paid to dress up and take pictures for hours! Ever since I started modeling I instantly became more confident and comfortable with every aspect of my body, flaws and all.

Tell us some of your greatest achievements in your career today.
Well, I’ve been offered so many jobs and that itself feels so rewarding because I was always this shy little insecure girl and modeling has completely turned that around. One of my photographers, Dave, actually had a show with all of my photos on display and unfortunately I didn’t make it but I saw the wall with all these gorgeous photos of myself and that made me feel pretty fabulous.

What are some of the toughest challenges about your job and what are some things you do to overcome the challenges?
I never have a problem with shooting today. No matter what kind of set. But in the beginning, of course, I was nervous and you could honestly see it in my face in the photos themselves. So in order to improve the photo I had to lighten up and just relax. And next thing you know I loved every single one of my photos!

What are some characteristics you should have to be prepared in this industry?
I would say you must be confident, open minded, somewhat adventurous (for outdoor shoots). You obviously must be in shape and keep that up. And you have to just want to be the most beautiful woman you can at that very moment. Which I guess has to do with how comfortable you are with your photographer. That always counts.

What should aspiring female models be careful of? What are some things that can be unforeseen?
There are many men out there with a $300 camera and call themselves photographers. We call them “G.W.C’s” (guys with cameras)! Those are the ones you do not want to shoot with. You need to find a legit photographer who you can be yourself with at all times. You must trust him/her and always make sure you sign legal documents!

What hobbies are you into outside of modeling? What do you do on weekends and on your time off?
I am actually a full time mommy! I have a beautiful 3 year old son who is my world! We spend each waking minute together, unless I’m out shooting. He is my best friend. I don’t have many friends.
