Model for a Day

Yesterday, I became a model.  Not a real one, but close enough.  I had my graduation portraits taken yesterday, and it was the closest I have ever been to having a modeling experience.

All in all, I was on a natural high throughout the entire "photoshoot", let's call it.  The photographer was nice, creative and was truly interested in getting a good photo.  For once, I actually felt confident about my poses, my smile...everything.  Strangely enough, I only had a bit of lipstick on and a light dusting of powder (which is more than I usually have!), but I genuinely felt  beautiful.  Whether I actually was is up for debate, but being in front of the camera takes all those concerns away.  Looking good isn't such a big deal when you're having that much fun.  

As well, I was asked to bring in a prop that represented who I am, and of course, I instantly thought of fashion.  So I brought in an issue of Flare magazine, with Coco Rocha (my favourite model) on the cover.  I had some great, creative shots with it.

It's funny how being in front of a camera is actually one of the greatest ways to gain confidence.  If some of you don't already, I say: get your photographer friends to click away at you!  Even if the photos don't turn out well, you'll come away with one amazing experience.  We can all be models for a day.

  6. =P I'll do ur makeup for grad =D, tho in my opinion I always find that less is more, like one should try to enhance what beauty already exists, not erase everything and start from scratch.
