Voices and laughter are one of the first things I notice when speaking with someone. Melissa has a velvety voice and by that I mean it’s soft and smooth with a depth to it. Soothing to listen to. She’s one of my Senior Model Reps who found me by way of Instagram. I didn’t know anything about her other than the fact that she commented on and liked my work a whole lot. So I said,
Hey Melissa, are you interested in being a Paige P. rep this year?
Well it was as if I had told her she won the lottery but she wasn’t sure she had the correct number. It’s really pretty funny when I think about it. And after getting to know her, she really is just like her voice. Soft on the outside with an inner strength to her that I admire a whole lot. When she and her mom came to see the gallery there was a lot of oohing and aahing but what she told me went straight to my heart and was so incredibly reaffirming for me.
“I don’t remember a lot of these shots being taken but I remember exactly how I felt and I won’t forget that.”
That is exactly why I do what I do! It’s for the experience, feelings and memories that you’ll carry with you afterward. Thank you Melissa!
