Happy Birthday Holly!

Happy New Year everyone! I have been wanting to share with you some of our model Holly Sherman's latest photos, and since her birthday was yesterday we think the timing is perfect. In case you missed it, we introduced you all to Holly in this post, and explained why we love and admire her so much. She has been working in New York for the past little while, and we couldn't be happier with the photos of her that we are seeing. Happy Birthday Holly, we are looking forward to working with you in 2016!

Olivia Hamilton on Health

Well apparently this week is Liz and Olivia week, but these two beautiful best friends keep providing us with material that is too good not to share with all of you. Yesterday morning Olivia Hamilton posted a Facebook status about health that really verbalized exactly what we try to tell our models all the time. In order to model you have to have a certain figure, and really it is more about keeping up your overall health, than just losing weight. In order to be able to model you have to have the stamina to be in front of the camera (which sometimes entails running, jumping, dancing, etc.), not to mention be able to run from casting to casting, and be able to do a lot of it in stilettos. Having models who will be able to keep themselves healthy is key, because if a model is starving herself to just be thin there is no way she will be able to keep up with her career (not to mention how unhealthy that is!).

Olivia said, "I think a lot of people struggle with the concept of health. Just because someone's skinny doesn't mean they are healthy and just because someone is healthy doesn't mean they are skinny. Any size person can be malnourished and any size person can be healthy to a degree. The difference is a diet of veggies, fruit, lean proteins, and whole grains versus a diet of skipping meals, restricting calories, etc. With the right amount of healthy portion control, healthy foods, and exercising, your results will be far better than the other route. I don't understand why people choose to do it the unhealthy way instead of increase their life span and live a happy, healthy life. In the long run that's what matters."

So the moral of the story is, we want you all to be healthy, especially as the New Year approaches and everyone is making their resolutions. Don't look for short cuts to a perfect body, instead focus on your overall health and choose a way to get healthy that you can sustain for the long run.

Liz Kennedy for L'Officiel Japan

You are getting a double dose of Liz Kennedy this week, but when we I see photos like these I can't help but post them right away! These pages are from an editorial in L'official Japan, and I have to say that this edgier look on Liz looks pretty cool. It's funny to think of sweet Liz, our midwestern highschooler, looking grungy in this Japanese fashion magazine. That's one of the things we love about modeling though, where you are from doesn't matter it is how your photos turn out that make or break your career. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos from this editorial Liz, because we are loving what we have seen so far!

Olivia the Graduate!

We have to give a major shout out to our model Olivia Hamilton. She has been working with us for a few years now, traveling all over the world, and staying on the Honor Roll while doing it. Olivia just finished high school, a semester early, and kept up her impressive grades while doing it. This girl is not only beautiful, but she is smart, and she is a hard worker, which is an incredible combination. We are proud of you Olivia, and we know that you will be able to accomplish anything you put your mind to.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Liz Kennedy for Telegraph Magazine

The Monday after a holiday weekend is always a little bit rough, but hopefully this editorial of Liz Kennedy will help brighten your day. These photos ran in the Telegraph Magazine in the UK, and we can't get over the lush scenery paired with the cozy wool pieces in the wardrobe. Liz shot this when she was in London, and it turned out incredibly. Great work Liz, another killer editorial to add to your book.
