Last, but certainly not least, I am honored to introduce you to Claire. Claire is a high school senior model on my class of 2018 team and is a student as San Marcos High School.  Claire is different from any other girl I’ve photographed because she is already a signed model and her big dream in life is to be a successful model.  My model program is not actually to teach modeling or create models, it is more that they are model’s for my studio.  I pride myself in having girls on the team this year and last year that are all different shapes, sizes, and ethnicities, and are not necessarily “model types.” And through the program I can show them that they don’t need to be a “model type” to be just as beautiful as the girls they see on the pages of the magazines.  Claire is a “model type” but that just means that I can pose her in more fashion type poses and create more images that are perfect for her modeling portfolio.  The most important thing to me is that my girls are happy, healthy, and comfortable in their own bodies, no matter what their size.

Claire is a sweet and quite girl, who really does have a brilliant modeling career ahead of her. I have no doubt we will see big things from this girl.  For her shoot for Rowan Boutique Claire is modeling a gorgeous gown and necklace that is seriously prom ready.
