Model Monthly December – Michelle
I first met Michelle at Salon Circa where she works. She had such a wonderful, unique fashion sense that drew me to her. She is probably one of the sweetest women I know as well. I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle on two shoots but I certainly hope to do many more in the future. The first time I had the pleasure of photographing Michelle was for the Heartbreak Boutique fashion shoot. Later on I was fortunate enough to be able to do a solo shoot with Michelle. Here are a few photos from the later shoot at the 1st of December.
How long have you been modeling?
I wouldn’t call myself a model but more of a fashion enthusiast! 2 years ago the salon I work for ( Salon Circa) asked me if I would be one of the hair models for a Fantasy Hair competition and I guess that is where I caught the ” modeling” bug! 😀 Since then I have done a Photo shoot with HeartBreak Boutique, have been a part of Fashion Forward 2012 and being a huge fan of Vintage Inspired Clothing I had the pleasure doing a Pinup Inspired Photo shoot.
Why did you 1st want to become a model?
From the time I was a young girl saving up my money that I received from my parents or from babysitting jobs to purchase myself magazines, I was always drawn to the world of fashion and the models that told a story behind the clothes and the images.
What do you like most about modeling?
For myself, when I’ve been lucky enough to partake in Fashion Shows or to be a part of a photo shoot, I really enjoy getting into character with the help of hair, make up and wardrobe!
Do you prefer photo or runway modeling?
I couldn’t say that I prefer photo over runway modeling because personally I’ve had great experiences with both! With photo modeling you and the photographer work together and feed off each others energy which in the end transpires to these amazing images!
I find runway fun and exhilarating since you have this connection with the crowd and you feed off their energy and they feed off the energy you create! 😀
What are your aspirations for the future?
I hope to be able to partake in more photo shoots, projects or shows in 2013. I will also be brewing up some ideas for another Vintage Inspired photo shoot 😀
