It has been some time since I’ve posted, I know. I have taken many photographs in hopes to elaborate in words and it’s not as if there has been nothing so interested that I haven’t felt compelled to share,  just that I’ve been a bit pre-occupied with life. If you are interested in checking out the photographs most of them are uploaded to my Facebook page. Since my last post, I have experienced saying goodbye to my job, home and dear friends in Okinawa; visited with family in Sweet Home “Indiana” where I was introduced to three of our family’s newborn boys; reunited with my best friend I’ve had since I was 7 years old, Lara; temporarily lived in eleven different hotels and homes; experienced 8 different airports; driven over 4000 miles; successfully moved with a husband, three pets and over 5000 pounds of belongings from Japan to the panhandle of Florida; had my precious Doobie Boi go MIA for 12 days; watched Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Doobie Brothers, Fuel, Pop Evil, Josh Turner, Long Reef, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Better Than Ezra, 311, 30 Seconds to Mars and Stone Temple Pilots in concert; submitted approximately 40 job applications; met with one of America’s top modeling scouts, Linda Bennett, who has provided me with modeling contract opportunities at Wilhelmina Models and Ford Models; ate at many new and wonderful restaurants; watched fireworks blast off a barge on the Boggy Bayou, as patriotic music blared from a boat on the 4th of July; spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend in New Orleans as the Southern Decadence Festival went on; celebrated my 25th Birthday; explored Panama City from the back of a Harley; watched the sunrise and sunset on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico; experienced wild dolphin sightings while boating with new friends; and have embraced a new military community. As you can read, I’ve been extremely pre-occupied! I hope to get back into keeping up with my blogging as it’s a creative outlet for me. Also, I have hopes to keep all of you, my friends and family, up to date on the many exciting life changes that will be happening in the near future. You will have to check back often or subscribe to see what exactly I mean!

Thanks for reading, I’ve missed this!

Seth’s Photography

I have been teaching Seth what little I know about photography and he took me out on a small walk about shoot in our neighborhood. See for yourself but he’s done very well, especially for his first time. I still couldn’t persuade him to let me show him any Photoshop skills though so the photography is his work and the editing is mine.

It’s been taking me a lot longer to make posts than I’d like because of our upcoming PCS move. Shamefully I’ve got to admit these were taken at the end of February but I guess better late than never! Below are some of my favorites; you can also see a couple on the “About Me page”.

Earth Goddess

A little over a week ago I did a long awaited modeling session with photographer friends Anya and Jyll. It was Anya’s idea to do an Earth Goddess theme, needless to say I was in at the word Earth. I worked for the first time with makeup artist Kimberly of Glamour Eyes and she was great, I can’t wait to work with her again!

The shoot turned out great despite the cold, rainy weather. There was one point where they were directing me to point my foot one way and it just wouldn’t work because it was twitching from being so cold. Good thing you can’t tell in the pics…

I did a vintage modeling shoot with my photographer friends Deni and Anya. (Click on each name to visit their blogs.) Deni worked up the nerve to ask a couple of well-dressed, Japanese, gentlemen passersby to pose with me. Below are my favorites from Anya, I will make a later post of Deni’s images when I get them.

THANKS ANYA!!!

One week ago…

…I turned 24! Whoa, almost a quarter of a century old! I was having a bit of a meltdown about it not because I truly believe 24 is even close to being old but because of the people in this world who do believe it is. If you know anything about me you’ll know that modeling has been a dream of mine since I can hardly remember and I’m getting to be of “that age”. If you go to any major agency website and click on their model submission page it usually states some minimum measurement and age requirements. First thing, I’m only 5 feet and 8 inches… about one inch shorter than most top agencies would want. Secondly, I am now 24 years old… about 3 years older than most top agenies want. I do not have much “insider” knowledge but I can about guarantee if your submission does not have these requirements it automatically goes into the trash. Of course you could lie, but where would that get you other than to waste a lot of people’s time. Oh well I suppose like John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans”.

On another note, I did have a nice Birthday. I kept telling everyone to just let me forget it so I could pretend I was still 23. Of course I have so many wonderful, loving people in my life that simply wouldn’t let that be. Thank you to all of my friends and family for the thoughtful messages, cards and gifts. And a big thank you to the greatest husband in the world who kept his promise to NOT celebrate my birthday…

Seth asked them to write "Happy Day Erin". As you can see they must've started to write birthday because it says "Happy BAY Erin". Poor guy can't catch a break, he tried!
