Polaroids of Olivia Hamilton

We have been posting frequently lately about model Polaroids, but they are so important!  If you still don't know why Polaroids are important to a model's career click HERE.  Here is a recent set of Polaroids we received from Olivia Hamilton.  Olivia is busy working in New York, and she shot these for our partner agency, Fusion out there.  These are a perfect example of how Polaroids should look.  Minimal make up, swimsuit or basic skinny jeans and top, and a plain-walled background.  So, if you need to submit polaroids anytime soon, feel free to follow Olivia's lead in these beauties!

Throwback Thursday: Then and Now

For today's Throwback Thursday, we are looking at a set of digital polaroids that we received of Emma Landen.  These pictures were taken and sent to us in 2011, when we first discovered Emma.  Since our scout found Emma in her native Colorado, Emma has gone on to do some amazing work.  Most notably she shot THIS CAMPAIGN for Dior.  We love seeing the comparisons of a model's first polaroids to some of her work, and Emma's are no exception.  We knew just from these images that Emma had all of the potential in the world as a model.

Update on Ashland

Last week we posted THIS about Ashland Wendlandt's time in New York.  We just received these pictures in the mail, and we had to share them with you.  We love how Ashland embodies an all-American beauty in these images.  This test shoot is one of the many things Ashland has been busy with while in NYC.  You may remember we posted THIS video of Ashland and her mom, not very long ago. It looks like things are picking up pretty fast for Ashland and we can see why!

Update on Kara Beller

You all may remember this post we did of our model, Kara Beller. We thought you might want to see the final images from her Dolls Model Management test shoot, photographed by Rodney Ray.  Kara has already traveled to New York for modeling, as we detailed in this post.  Now New York wants her back and agencies in Paris are asking for her as well.  We are looking forward to seeing what 2015 has in store for Kara, because we have a feeling it is going to be a great year for this beauty!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hannah Holman for Harper's Bazaar

Happy Monday everyone!  Today's Major Moment Monday is of Pulse Management discovery, Hannah Holman's, Harper's Bazaar editorial.  We just posted about Hannah last Friday, but we can't help ourselves from doing a back-to-back post when the pictures are this stunning.  This editorial is from the January 2015 issue of Australian Harper's Bazaar.  Our models love working in Australia, and usually we have a hard time convincing them to come home once they are out there!  We love this editorial Hannah, it is definitely major.

Hannah Holman for Anthropologie

We are pretty sure that Hannah Holman's pictures for Anthropologie will get you headed to your nearest store.  Looking through these beautiful pictures not only show our beautiful Hannah, but they are gorgeously styled in a outdoor wonderland.  We usually are drawn to more simple photos, but there is something special about the gorgeous background of these pictures that seem almost like they are from a make-believe land.

Hannah looks as stunning as ever, and she was probably right at home near the reindeer.  When we discovered her she was from a small town in Utah, and grew up around a lot of animals.  When she shot the Marc Jacobs' Daisy campaign she mentioned that she loved being on the horse, because it reminded her of home.  She has come a long way in her career and we love that she is showing no signs of slowing down.

Pulse Mgmt Loves Bree!

Bree and her son Sylver

You all may remember when we introduced your to Bree Hanneman, one of our models and a member of the Pulse Mgmt team? Bree entered our online model search last year and has been an important part of Pulse ever since.  She lives in Hawaii and she is a scout, model, and photographer for us out there. No matter what she is doing, it always turns out incredibly, and she never ceases to amaze us with her talents. (Not to mention she is the mama to the cutest little guy on the North Shore!)

I asked Bree to answer a few questions about herself, to share with all of you where she got started and what she is up to now.
WHERE IT BEGAN: started modeling when i was 16 years old. I was a model for a runway show for upcoming fashion designers. My fashion stylist ended up winning the show with the clothing that i was wearing. (i thought i was so cool and famous.)
then i joined an egency in la until the end of highschool. went to byu for my first year of college and ACUALLY went to a pulse open call and got a call back, but wasn't able to get a portfolio with them at the time. i then transferred to hawaii shortly after.

HAWAII: moved to hawaii not knowing anyone, or what i was even doing. started going to school at byuh. met SEEK (now my husband) about a month into being out there at his families restaurant. Seek and his brothers moved to hawaii when they were young teenagers (there are 7 of them) and once they were done with high school the boys and their dad wanted to figure out a way to stay in hawaii and make a living. they decided to open up "kahuku grill". three years later they opened up "seven brothers" and then once year later they opened up a "seven brothers truck" right across the street from the famous SUNSET BEACH on the north shore. my husband runs Seven brothers and his two other brothers run Kahuku Grill and the Truck. the boys love every minute of it and cant wait to open up more and maybe even bring it to the mainland! a year into seek and i being married we had our son Sylver Monatua le atua Hannemann (samoan). it means sylver remembers the lord. (seeks is Seek Fa Ale Atua Hannemann which means "seek the things of god".

HOW I GOT BACK IN CONTACT W/ PULSE: A friend of mine told me to enter the the first online model search. i did. i lost, but it was a blessing in disguise because through that i was able to start working on the business side of pulse and start scouting and doing photography for their upcoming models out here on the island of hawaii. 

I have always been into photography but took a serious interest in it once i got married to seek. he loves making short clip videos or out trips, adventures, and the restaurants. so he bought a nice camera and with that i was really able to start getting   some quality pictures. my dream is to be the lead photographer of a children's line like GAP, or CHANEL, ect. Although I have enjoyed taking pictures for pulse of the older models as well. there is a different beauty and light to it, but it is all the best thing in the world to me. nothing better than creating something beautiful and letting the world see it. I have developed a deep passion for photography and plan on doing it until i reach my dream of working for big name companies. stacey eastman has been a great mentor to me, and has really put himself out there to help me when he really has no reason to. he has so much going on with Pulse and his family that it means a lot that he is willing to get my started and help me reach my dreams. i look forward to an amazing future with Pulse.
Bree, Seek and Sylver Hanneman

Pulse Management President, Stacey Eastman, loves Hawaii and is working towards expanding the company into the islands.  He sees Bree as an integral part of the Hawaiian operations. He said the following about Bree, "WE WILL HAVE BREE BE A SCOUT AND PHOTOGRAPHER AND SOON AS WE GROW OPERATIONS WITHIN THE HAWAIIAN MARKET, SHE WILL
