Thanks for all the comments! Going through them, I see that a lot of you are interested in breaking into the modeling industry, so I thought I’d give some tips on how to get started. From what’s shown on television I feel like girls and guys get a very skewed view of what the modeling industry is really about and what is expected of potential models. First thing’s first: You have to be realistic. Just like many other professions out there, modeling has some pretty stringent criteria that is rarely overlooked. Most important is height?most (but not all!) models are at least five eight. The best way to tell if you have what it takes to be a model is to have someone take color snapshots of you with no makeup, natural hair, and wearing fitted clothes (shorts and a fitted tee or a swimsuit work well). You should be photographed against a white background, and you’ll need face shots (smiling and not smiling) and a full body shot. If you live near a major U.S. city for modeling (New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, or San Francisco), call individual agencies to see if they have an "open call." This is a time set aside by the agencies when potential models are invited in for a consultation. Go to this armed with your snapshots. If you do not live close to a modeling hub, don’t worry. Call an agency in one of the larger cities and ask if they work with any smaller agencies in your neck of the woods. You can also send pictures to agencies with all of your pertinent info, including a phone number in case they are interested. Be sure to include your measurements (bust, hips, waist) and hair and eye color. Take lots of pictures because you will not get them back from agencies once you send them. Good luck! And let me know how it goes….

How/where were you discovered? In the grocery store. I ran out to the car to see if my mom left her purse in? there at the same time an agent was turning around in the parking lot,? he saw me and followed me into the store and voila!??

How do you manage school and modeling? It’s all about time management. I can handle it!? ?

What is your favorite food? Probably ?popcorn with m&ms. But don’t tell my agency that :)? ?

Where is your favorite city to travel and why? Destin, Florida. It’s? where my family spends our summer break. ?

?What do you like to do in your free time? I like to read, go to? movies, shop, you know: typical girl stuff. ?
If you weren’t modeling, what could you see yourself doing as a ?career? I’d say I’d want to be either an actor or a brain surgeon; I? mean, who doesn’t want to meet Dr. McDreamy? :)?

What do your friends think about you modeling? Not many of them know, ?actually, just my really close ones. They think it’s cool.? ?

Do you ever get to keep the clothes from the shoots?  Not yet, but ?I’d like to! ? ?

If you could book your dream job, what would it be? That’s really ?hard, but a spread in Teen Vogue would be nice (wink, wink) :)? ?

What are your must-have makeup essentials?  I don’t really wear? makeup, just lip balm. ? ?

Who are your favorite models?  Cintia Dicker and Caroline Trentini,?they’re both gorgeous!??

Who are your style icons? Rachel Bilson and Reese Witherspoon. Again,? gorgeous and classy.

What advice would you give to a girl trying to break into this ?industry? Be yourself and be patient. ? ??
