Modeling & Portfolio Shoot
A frantic grandmother called me last Wednesday because she needed a photographer quick! She told me that her granddaughter had received a letter from Barbizon Modeling School, and that she needed headshots and comp cards before Saturday! I met with her the next afternoon. Alaina shared with me that it was her dream to study modeling. After some wardrobe selections from Ruby’s in Hammond, (Yes- we went shopping.), we began our shoot. I told Alaina that in order to beat out her modeling competition that it was important to walk into her meeting not only with her comp cards, but with a portfolio. So, we shot her portfolio! I had called Lakeside Photoworks, and I spoke with Jaclyn. She assured me that with an express printing charge, she could make those comp cards happen! I edited the photos, designed the card, and sent to Jaclyn. She printed, and I went to Metaire, picked them up, and I wished that you could have seen Alaina’s face when I delivered her comp cards! Out of 300 young ladies, 55 were chosen, and Alaina was one of the top ones chosen. I am very proud to have been a part of her success. If you are thinking about modeling, call me to schedule an appointment for your photoshoot.
