Many times over the years I have thought about the modeling industry. Not necessarily would I think of pursuing this career but more on how many women my age have succeeded in making themselves known in the industry.
Though I can’t deny that the idea has crossed my mind, it only is whenever I believe I look really good in a photo haha.
When it came down to actually getting in front of a camera and having someone take my photos with the actual intention of “modeling” I freaked out.
I thought it was super awkward to make that one serious and seductive face that every model has done, in front of someone. It terrified me and made me nervous. It was just super weird for me.
YEAH NO. I CANNOT POSSIBLY LOOK NORMAL DO THIS FACE.
But recently, I overcame that fear and “modeled” for my photographer (also my sister Carolina) ha. She had taken my photos before for my 16th birthday but this time, I was actually getting these photos taken for a portfolio. I mean, I figured since I’ve thought about so much I might as well give it a shot right? Doesn’t hurt to try.
Now, I’m 5’0. Therefore, the whole runway modeling doesn’t really fit for me. Of course I won’t deny it would be nice to be able to walk that Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show if I was tall enough. THANKS MOM AND DAD!
Just kidding haha I’m proud to be a shortie.
Either way, catalogue modeling has always been more interesting to me. I feel like if I were to walk on a runway, I’d fall on my ass in front of everyone and completely embarrass myself.
This was a fun experience and I can say that I would do it all over again. My sister and I went to Deerfield Beach in Florida where we knew were some rocks that could really help with the photos.
Now if you know me personally, you know I have a passion for the beach. Everything I love has to do with it. My style, my obsession with anything coconut, and even my feed haha
The day was cloudy so there wasn’t a lot of sunlight out. Car ride was about half an hour long. Maybe a little more but we finally made it to Deerfield Beach. I started to get the outfits I would be wearing ready while my sister went to pay the parking meter.
We walked about another 10-15 minutes to the spot where the rocks were located and set our bags on a spot. At once, we took some profile shots while I had no makeup on. Afterwards, I touched my face up a little and changed my outfit to a crop top with my bathing suit bottoms.
Light makeup, natural hair, and at my favorite place. Now the rocks were the perfect touch to the photos but boy did they hurt my butt haha. The rocks had smooth parts in some areas and pointy parts in others. My feet were able to resist the pain but when it came to the photos of me sitting on them, I had to hold it for a second and quickly get the shot so I wouldn’t have to stay in that position for long.
There were various times where I had to stop because there were people starting to come to the beach.
We realized if we wanted to do one of the inspired shots that is without a top, we had to do it quickly before more people come. When I tell you that I’ve never taken a top off and then put it back on so fast in my life… It was quite the rush haha.
Now getting to the shots that were taken in the water.
THE WATER WAS SO COLD
When I first got wet, I felt as though I was an ice cube. But in the mist of the moment, I just went for it. I was willing to freeze my ass of for a good photo haha
Multiple shots were taken and we ended up taking the last ones by some palm trees before we made our way back to the car.
Overall, this is such a fun experience and I’d like to take a moment to thank my beautiful sister for taking time off her day to take these photos for me. Now more than ever, I want to do some type of modeling. As a hobby of course, but I just have so much fun taking photos and getting my picture taken. Though I have a feeling that agencies don’t really look at petite girls that don’t meet their height requirements but a girl can dream right?
Whatever happens, Im going to keep getting my photos taken and do shoots because in the end, its a fun experience. Whether you’re doing it for a company or just to have some nice shots for yourself.
So, lately I have been sort of submitting my photos to different VALID agencies and just hoped for the best. So far, no response but you never know. 🙂
That’s all I have for you at the moment. I have been busy with school lately so that explains my temporary break with this blog. haha sowwy.
