Beth has finally returned to modeling after taking a 9 month break while she had braces on. Our first stop was back to St. Louis to see her mother agents and get some test shots done. After they get the shots back form the photographers they’ll decide what her next step will be. Possibly New York towards the end of Feb. for more test shots. Then she could be off to work in one of the many markets around the world (New York, Miami, Paris, London, Milan.) Beth is ready to go NOW, I’m a little more hesitant about her just taking off for 3 months on her own. But I’m a whole lot more confortable with the idea now then when this first started and she had just turned 16. Either way I’ll go with her to New York in Feb then we’ll see what happens after that.
I thought it would be fun to compare photos from Beth’s very first shoot and this past weekend. When this all started she had just turned 16 now she is almost 18.
Jan. 2011 (this is really a horrible picture taken with my phone, sorry Beth.)
2009, her hair was MUCH shorter! She had just had it all cut off right before she was “discovered.” She has not had it cut since then.
Here she is with her longer hair still being shot by Stephen the first photographer that shot her back in 2009. She’s also wearing the bodysuit that she just bought at American Apparel, she likes to point out that its actually meant to be worn with something else not all by itself. And there are those combat boots she just got at Target. It was the only time this weekend that the shoes actually fit her.
I remember Jeff and Mary emailing us a list of clothing items Beth needed for the shoot so off we went to Forever 21, $300 later she had a stack of clothes that I don’t think I’ve ever seen her wear again.
Tomorrow’s post will have some more pics of the shoot and pics of all those darn shoes that are always just 1 or 2 sizes too small.
