I am so thrilled and honored to be joining the Marilee Caruso Photography team both as her assistant as well as a guest blogger! Read on to learn a little bit about me and some of the fun things that will be happening in Cherry's Corner.
Marilee and I have been working together for seven years now and have done over 20 shoots so far! My very first shoot with Marilee was at Reno Rockabilly Riot back in 2012. Images from that shoot were soon after published in a magazine which helped me decide to start my modeling career. Throughout my career I have worked with many other photographers from all over the United States. I have participated and won several pinup pageants and have gone on to become a host and judge of pinup pageants. Over the last seven years I have secured many print, runway, and fit modeling jobs by using images from our shoots as part of my portfolio. Our work together has been featured on Pinup Girl Clothing's website, in magazines, in calendars, books, and so much more! The days we work together feel like a fantastic session of dress up with my very best gal pal. The resulting images have continued to be some of my favorite work in my portfolio.
After working together over the years our professional relationship has included photo shoots, signings at various events, and helping out at Marilee's vendor booth several times. So when Marilee found herself in need of an assistant a few years ago it was a natural next step for me to volunteer to help. I currently assist with her social media accounts, advertising, blog posts, other administrative tasks, and occasionally on photo shoot days. I really love not only being able to help Marilee but also having the opportunity to learn more about this industry by working behind the scenes. What I have learned on set with Marilee has not only made me a better model it has also made me a better professional.
I am really excited to use this space to talk to you about things from my perspective. After many years in the pinup and modeling industry I have a lot of tips, tricks, and insight that I am happy to share here so keep your eyes peeled for my once a month blog posts!
I owe so much to working with Marilee and highly recommend shooting with her for personal and professional reasons! If you are interested in booking with her click the button below!
