Mon Cheri Prom & Bridal

Over Christmas break while most college kids were going skiing, sipping hot chocolate or just Netflix and chillin', I was working my little booty off. Over break I had my first "big girl trip" to Conway and Little Rock to do my very first commercial as well as a campaign spread with Mon Cheri Prom and Bridal. These two trips meant a lot to me because it was the first time I drove somewhere pretty far away (yes I know Conway and Little Rock are about three hours away, but still) and had to stay ALONE in a hotel. For a small town daddy's girl this was actually pretty difficult ha! I was a little hesitant before I took the jobs because I knew it would basically take over most of my Christmas break, which lets face it is all college kids look forward to all semester. Even though I had to wake up at 5:30 in the morning everyday for five days and shoot until the late evenings it was totally worth it. I loved getting dolled up everyday, making new friends, and of course building up my resume and portfolio with more photos. The Mon Cheri shoot was at the Royal We prom showroom and I seriously thought I had died and went to heaven when I got there. This place was truly something out of a fantasy. I was so mad at myself for not getting my prom dresses there when I was in high school. I especially loved this place and the owners because they bought all the models delicious food. Most of the time at photo shoots they expect the models to want soup or salads, but at Royal We they let us get Tacos For Life, which of course was the highlight of my day! The commercial I was apart of was super cool because I got to play twins! Yes, you heard right, I played twins. I felt like Lindsey Lohan in the Parent Trap haha. All in all, this break wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be, but I had a blast and I am super glad that I got out of my comfort zone for once in my life. This is my challenge to you guys to check something off your bucket list or do something you never thought you would ever do.
