While sharing my own childhood modeling career, it reminded me of one of my first favorite models. Early in my photography career, like many people, I would have to search for my own models. Many times I called on a good friend for her daughter’s help. Not only was she a cute little girl, but she also had mad athletic skills, if the assignment called for it. One day we were shooting photographs for the cover of a health magazine. She pulled out her hula hoops and put on a show. I can’t remember if this image was used in the magazine, but it has always been one of my favorites.
