We had decided on a grunge themed shoot and were wandering around the city center in Palmerston North looking for grungy things to go with the Doc Martins we had borrowed from one of the other photographers.
Jaime is 17. She mentioned that modelling was a goal for her. She has a super supportive mum too. I will agree that Jaime has that X factor. You can tell when you bring the camera up and look through the viewfinder. The models faces have this "go to" face that they turn on when you raise the camera. It's just for you and not many people get to see it.
Between the day of me writing this and taking the photo Jaime has been signed by Red 11 Model Management, one of New Zealands best agencies. I'm so proud and very happy for her.
