Bree and her son Sylver
You all may remember when we introduced your to Bree Hannemann, 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.
