A&E Fairy Shoot

Oh, this fairy shoot was soooo much fun, too! I'm so proud of these younger girls for the courage they have to jump in with the "big girls" and learn alongside them and compete in the same way as the teen models. These ladies have been fun to get to know and I am, again, sad to see this semester end, but thankful for the chance to get to know them. One thing I love about this program is getting to see these young girls and their attitudes develop -- we try to teach them things like how they should act when they go on an audition or for a job and we stress the importance of what a good attitude says to the people who will work with you. I think it is so great that they get to learn these things at such a young age, because it is great for LIFE - not just in the acting world. And I know, personally, that because of the sweetness and the great attitudes that I see in these ladies, it makes me WANT to work with them, so I am hoping to see them again soon, as well.

Now... this challenge winner is Michelle, whose best two images are shown below (we just couldn't choose one favorite of hers). Michelle came into this shoot and really came alive!! She brought her "fairy dust" in with her, as I hope you can see in the first image, and brought an expression that was so magical and she actually looked like a fairy to me. Not just in the costume, but in her presence - that's one thing we try to teach the models, too, is that you not only have to come and look the part, but you have to BE the part. Great job, Michelle, and congratulations to you! :)
Sweet Mae is just a beautiful young lady -- inside and out - that I've so enjoyed getting to know...

Miranda looked stunning with her curly hair and sweet face...

Jasmine, little fairy in the woods... another great shot from her...

And Kelsey, whose images were very stunning, as well. Too bad there can only be one winner -- she also had an image where she was a "sleeping fairy" that was very beautiful.

Congratulations to these ladies, who have completed their first sememster at the A&E Studio's Modeling Program ( These ladies and gentlemen walk away from the program with 6 ads that they worked on for each challenge after their 12-week program, and tons of confidence to take them into their next journey in life--I am so proud of each of them!! Love you guys!
