gettin' back in the groove.

Last night, I got my groove back. For all my moaning and groaning about the modeling industry, for all my grumbling about how frustrating it can be, I will admit that I've actually missed it a little bit. I do love doing runway, and I think print work can be really fun and exciting. The science behind light, photography, and the human form amazes me. I haven't been able to afford new, up-to-date photographs, which has really hurt my chances at getting work. The photos my agent has of me--the ones he submits to clients--are from, oh, about seven years ago. I no longer look like that woman. He's been hounding me for ages to get new pictures, but since I've been strapped financially, I haven't been able to.


Luckily, I met a photographer who wants to get into photographing models and actors. Since he's never really worked with either before, he offered to "practice" by using me. He gets experience, I get new photos. It's a win-win.

We shot at the South Side Works. I've only gotten to see a few of the 700--yes, 700--shots he took. I'll be sure to share my favorites with you once I get to see them!

Anyway, I feel like I'll be back in action in the modeling world here very soon. I feel blessed. And I'm thrilled to have pictures that actually look like me now.


with love from Pittsburgh,
Laura

You are one of those people that are beautiful on the inside and the outside.
Not that I'm jealous or anything. No. I'm. Not. Jealous. At. All. (as said through grinding teeth!)
