I always love when readers from my community ask questions – Q&A is my thing. Sometimes, I get asked certain questions more than others. Here are a few that I tend to get asked often.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN MODELING? I began exploring modeling in 2005. I became a professional model in 2008 and have been modeling for over 9 years.
ARE YOU SIGNED TO A MODELING AGENCY EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE ONLY 5’ 3”? Yes, I am signed to The Campbell Agency located in Dallas, Texas. This is a Modeling and Acting agency.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? I’m a professional Model, Online influencer + content creator. I also teach aspiring petite models how to build their careers, online influencers & content creators how to express confidence in everything they do. All which leads my community in the right direction to live their passion and monetize it!
HOW DID YOU STARTED IN MODELING? My modeling journey started out as a hobby. I had no idea what I was doing in the beginning, I just knew one day I wanted to model full time. I had my first photoshoot in 2005 and after feeling the high of excitement it gave me I felt a burning like I had never felt before. But it wasn’t because of the pretty pictures, it was something deeper. I wanted to show the world that there is more to me that meets the eye. That a random petite girl from a small town, can grow up and make a passion into a reality. I wanted to inspire others to do the same. So modeling quickly became a skill and talent I grew and I am always learning.
HOW DO YOU GET PAID? Through modeling, acting, brand partnerships, sponsored content (site, social or video) or sales from my online classes and info products.
I JUST STARTED MODELING ANY ADVICE? Be consistent, and never stop learning. Modeling can either be a hobby or a passion. Give it a try and know that there is work that goes on behind the scenes to produce the final product, the photo. So be willing to work way beyond just a pretty face. The camera catches everything, confidence and the lack of it.
