I am a size US 18/20! <3
Believe it or not, that ‘gown’ is actually a sheet!! I whipped it together before the shoot, as I needed a large, statement gown, but couldn’t find any actual ‘designs’ in time for the shoot!
Thank you hun!
I was discovered by a store manger who asked me to walk a fashion show for her. After that, I realized I really liked modeling and that there was a market for girls my size.
So, I asked a friend to take a few simple shots of me: head shots and full body shots. I posted them online, on a few different sites for modeling and fashion. (modelmayhem.com, isoconnection.com)
I looked for photographers and stylists who were also building their portfolio as asked if they wanted to shoot TFP (Trade for Photo), which basically, everyone works for free and gets photos for their portfolio.
I kept on doing that, and still do that! I post my photo online and network like crazy!!
It takes a lot of hard work but you can do it! You just have to WANT to do it!
My goodness! I have been one busy bee! Photo shoots, new clients, writing and the occasional play-time. I have neglecated many accounts, including this one. Well not any more!! I finally have some more open time, I can finally dish all my adventures to share with the world, and prove women of any shape and size are fabulous! <3
Hugs and loves everyone! <3<3
Let’s be frank: you can never please everyone. Its impossible. So, don’t try and please everyone… In fact, you sohuld only try and please one person: YOU!
Go out there, love yourself and know you are amazing, no matter what you look like, what you wear or what you do. You are fabulous and you deserve to love yourself!
