Welcome to Philly

Best day ever happened the other day.  I was able to do a photoshoot with my very best friend from top model Cycle 21 Raelia Lewis AND my favorite competitor from top model Cycle 20 Cory Hindorff!

Woke up bright and early and hopped onto the MegaBus to take me to Philadelphia to meet up with Raelia and Cory.  Cory picked me up from the bus stop and we were able to spend some time talking about Top Model Cycles past and present and life in general.  From seeing him on television and meeting him in person a couple of times I still get a little star struck, because I am such a huge fan and then I think about it again and THAT'S GOING TO BE ME! CRAY CRAY!

Raelia and all her glorious legs met up with us at the photoshoot and you better believe we made some sweet sweet magic thanks to Robert Carter Photography.  For me coming fresh into the modeling world like a fish out of water, I am still learning as much as I can, and when the great and mystical Cory stepped onto set it was like a goddess was unleashed and every one of us had the privilege to watch the magic unfold before our eyes.  I have never seen someone TURN ON so fast and work the camera in that way.  So impressed.  Took it all in and grabbed my college ruled note pad and took NOTES YALL. Not really but I probably should have.  Loved every second of this shoot and can't thank everyone involved enough for making it happen!  CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT.

It made my day being able to catch up with Raelia after four months.  It's been so long since I had seen her, practically since we got back from filming Top Model, and there was so much to get each other caught up on.  There are many great things to come from #teamwillandraelia YOU BETTA WATCH OUT WORLD.
