Melanie puts her best face forward

“ I felt like the center of attention. ”

What 15-year-old girl wouldn’t want to get dressed up, have her make-up and hair professionally done and get lots of amazing pictures taken for a day? Well, Melanie, from Miami, wished to do just that!  She had always dreamed of having a professional modeling portfolio. Fashion Photographer John Landers, along with Fashion Designer Eva Danielle and Primp Hair Salon & Extension Boutique joined together to help jumpstart her modeling career.

Melanie said that she felt like the center of attention. Her day began with a limousine ride to the salon so she could be pampered with a beauty makeover including hair, nails and make-up. She felt like a celebrity with a fashion consultation to select the trendy clothes she would wear for the shoot. Now that everything was in place, the real fun started! Melanie posed like a pro in the different outfits she chose.

This experience was so rewarding for Melanie.  She truly loved every minute of it and her positive energy shows in her beautiful portfolio.
