I offer a very unique approach to senior photography, going beyond the session and creating true experiences for my clients. So, I realized I needed to offer an equally unique model experience. I wanted to have a positive impact on their senior year and beyond, and I knew I needed to put something together that was amazing and unlike any of the traditional model programs.
In 2015, the FLYGIRL program was launched, bringing a group of young people together for a year-long experience that would be the time of their lives! This program creates new friendships; builds positive self image; and encourages giving back to the community.
Why the name? FLY stand for, "First love yourself." That is what I want my models to project and feel. It's so important to me to work with young ladies and help them see their personal beauty; the internal qualities that make them SHINE - having self-respect, giving back, and making good decisions to have a positive impact on their future. In turn, my hope is that these young ladies become role models, and carry with them their confidence and goodwill as they take the next steps in their lives. I hope they FLY!
