Natalie Keyser for Soho Magazine

Although Natalie Keyser has been home from Mexico for a while, we are still getting images from her trip. That is not uncommon in this industry, and sometimes it takes a long time to track images down, and when you do get them, it can feel like Christmas morning.  That is how we feel seeing these images of Natalie.  This editorial is for Soho Magazine, and we think they are stunning. They transport you into a different time and that is the power of photography (and styling, hair and makeup, props, modeling, etc.).  With Halloween coming up these pics are good inspiration to be a cavewoman, but we doubt any of us would look anywhere near as good as Natalie does in these pics! If you are interested to hear about how Natalie started with us, and hear about her career firsthand, click here to see a video of her explaining it all!

Armon Featured on MODELS.COM

Well this is sure shaping up to be a great day! Pulse Management's, Armon Eastman, is featured on as 1/2 of today's Daily Duo.  The Daily Duo is in their New Faces section and it puts the spotlight on up and coming models.  To say that we are excited that Armon is being featured is an understatement, a MAJOR understatement. Our favorite part of the feature on Armon is this sentence:

"All American boy Armon grew up on the West Coast but has a look that defies boundaries."

We couldn't agree with the writer more, and the rest of the article is just as complimentary.  This isn't the first time we have had a model featured in the daily duo, Liz Kennedy, was featured recently and we posted about it here.  Congrats Armon, this is a HUGE accomplishment!

Ali Stephens for Mojeh Magazine

Cover of Mojeh Magazine 

It has been awhile since we have posted about Ali Stephens.  We discovered Ali, launched her career, and we continue to be impressed by the success Ali has earned.  Ali lives in her native state of Utah, with her husband, but because of the career she has and the jobs she has done in the past she gets flown out to jobs she is requested for.  Not a bad way to live!

These pictures are from the cover of the Sept/Oct 2013 issue of Mojeh Magazine, and the accompanying editorial found inside the magazine.  Ali looks as amazing as ever, and looking through these pictures we are so proud of this model that we plucked from the mall in Utah and introduced to the world.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hannah Holman for H&M

It's Major Moment Monday time again, and this week we are going back to the Spring/Summer 2011 H&M Advertising campaign featuring Pulse Management discovery Hannah Holman.  H&M is a retail giant known for using the top tier of models in the industry in their campaigns, like Gisele Bundchen, Helena Christensen, and this campaign had Hannah posing alongside Raquel Zimmermann and Freja Erichsen. I remember seeing this ad campaign in stores and the rush of excitement from seeing one of our girls in such a huge campaign.

Daphni Hilton's Chinese Tear Sheets

We've said it before but one of the most rewarding parts of the work we do is getting to give our models the chance to travel and see the world in a way that they probably wouldn't have if they did not start modeling.  This beauty is Daphni Hilton, who we discovered in her home state of Utah.  Since we signed Daphni she has traveled all over, and these photos are from some of the work she did while in China.  We love these pretty images and we can't wait to see what Daphni does next.

In Their Own Words: Karsyn and Dean Bartruff

We have posted about our model Karsyn Bartruff a few times lately.  Lucky Karsyn has been traveling around the world for modeling jobs, and is experiencing a lot of exciting successes.  We thought you all might want to hear from Karsyn and her mom, about how she got started in the industry, and why she chose Pulse Management.  If you want to be a model, it is always beneficial to hear first hand from other models.

Throwback Thursday: Guess Who?!

Happy (Throwback) Thursday everyone! Today's TBT picture is Pulse Management model and scout Kayla Pointer.  Kayla was scouted in her hometown of Portland by our scouting director Lacey.  Soon she began scouting for us as well.  We love having her as part of our team, and we love seeing this throwback picture of her as a little girl.  Kayla you have grown up into a beautiful woman, and we are proud to have you as part of Pulse.

The Loss of a Legend: Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta

Yesterday the fashion world lost one of its finest.  The incomparably talented Oscar de la Renta passed away at the age of 82, and the fashion community is mourning this great man.  While reading various tributes to Mr. de la Renta online what stood out to me most is what a kind and loving man he was.  His designs were worn by royalty, multiple First Ladies, celebrities and most recently he designed the wedding dress for Amal Alamuddin who wed George Clooney. To read more about this amazing designer, check out this tribute from

Pulse Management's Hye Rim Park had the privilege of working with Oscar de la Renta on many occasions, so we are posting a few of her looks from his runway shows over the years.  She was a lucky model to have worked for such a talented designer on so many occasions.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Karsyn for Harper's Bazaar

It would have been enough for us just to see the tear sheets of Karsyn Bartruff's editorial for Harper's Bazaar Sinagapore, but this behind the scenes video is the icing on the cake.  Karsyn looks like a glamorous Hollywood film star from the 30s, and we always like to be able to share behind the scenes footage from shoots.  It is fun to see the finished pictures from an editorial and then see footage showing how they captured those images.  Congrats on your editorial and this video feature Karsyn, they are both major!

I can't believe that it is Thursday again already.  I look forward to this day every week, because I absolutely love seeing and posting these adorable pictures of our models when they were little.  This week's TBT is the beautiful Bree Goings, who is not only one of our models, she is also a scout for us and she is an integral part of our growing presence in the Hawaiian Islands.  (We will have a whole post about that soon!) We love Bree, and we can't get over how cute she was as a little girl, but it doesn't surprise us because she sure is a beauty now!

New Faces in Tinsel Tokyo Magazine

We have written about Tinsel Tokyo magazine multiple times, so hopefully by this point you all are as big of fans of the magazine as we are!  In their most recent New Faces section three out of the four models featured are from Pulse Management.  We are thrilled that the magazine sees the potential in these new models that we do, and that they already have their first magazine tear sheets.  From the top left, Lauren Lake, Kristina Jordan and then bottom right is Ellie Drapp.  All three of these models were photographed at the Dolls Model Management house at our latest shoot, and we are happy to welcome them to the Pulse Management family!  All three of the models were photographed by Rodney Ray, who continually shows us why he is one of our favorite fashion photographers when he gets shots like these!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Modeling Rites of Passage

When you are a model there are many milestones that you hopefully encounter throughout your career.  A few of these are signing with an agency, the first time you travel for a job, your first photo shoot, first fashion show, etc.  Three of our models recently experienced some exciting milestones, and we wanted to take a moment to congratulate them.  Natalie Keyser had the experience of seeing her magazine cover for La Costa magazine end up on a billboard.  It must be surreal to see a photograph of yourself blown up that large on the side of the road.

Sophie Skloss also had a milestone, when she saw herself in a magazine editorial while working in Asia.  I don't know if a model ever tires of seeing the finished product of her work in print.  

Lastly, Pulse Management model Karsyn Bartruff's mom was at the airport and she saw her daughter's photo looking up at her on the cover of Elle Magazine.  I can only imagine how exciting that was!

We love seeing these models (and their mom's) dream coming true, and seeing the results from their hard work.  Congrats ladies, we are so proud to be a part of your amazing careers.

Olivia for UNIQLO Jeans

As a model management company, obviously we love anytime one of our models books an advertising campaign.  It is always fun when they book a commercial because we get to see some movement out of our models.  Not only do we think this Uniqlo video is a great concept, but we love seeing Pulse model, Olivia Hamilton do a handstand at 11 seconds.  Actually it is a pretty effective ad, because now I'm thinking I want to go pick up a pair of these jeans.  I'll have to ask Olivia if they are as comfortable as they look. Congrats on a great booking Olivia, we can't wait to see what you do next. Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!

Have You Met Ashley?

Over the next few weeks we are going to introduce you to some of our newer models that you may not have seen yet.  We love this part of our job.  It is always exciting scouting potential models, developing them, and then introducing them to the fashion industry and to the world.  This is Ashley Graves from Washington, but we don't think she will be there for long.  We have big plans for Ashley, and the first stop we have planned for her is Hollywood.  Stay tuned everyone, we think you are going to see some exciting things from this model.
