I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;
How did you fall in love with modeling?
It was during my second photoshoot ever where the photographer showed different sides of me that I never knew I had. I was able to tell a story different from my own. Since then I fell in love.
How were you discovered?
A scout found me on Instagram saying I should consider modelling. I told him that not every pretty girl can become a model. He helped me set up a couple photo shoots with photographers he knew would work well with me.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
I haven’t done anything to crazy… I’m still a beginner. I would really like to do a photoshoot with snakes in the near future though!
How would you define your personal style?
I have a cute girl next door type of look so I play off of that.
Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?
I grew up in Toronto, Canada. I was very fortunate enough to be able to travel around Europe from a young age, so much of my influence comes from there.
Who is your style icon and why?
I would say Cardi B is my style icon. She’s a celebrity that shops at fashion nova, which is great because I could always recreate her look and afford it!
Who is your favorite photographer and why?
There are so many talented photographers so it’s hard to just name one. The top three that I worked with are @iamcolinclark, @josephrosevisuals, and @dowzr. All of these photographers were super professional and made me comfortable in front of the camera.
What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?
Make sure to be comfortable with your photographers! Don’t let them take advantage of you. Modelling is also a huge learning process as well. Learning which angles work, which poses work, and facial expressions. Most important is to have fun !
Do you edit your own photos? If yes, which programs do you use?
I sometimes do edit my own photos. My favourites are Facetune 2, Snapseed, and Lightroom.
