Usually, models seem self-absorbed, and sometimes that can be true, but in my case, I'm always about my friends and family first. When I'm not in a shoot or audition, I will be helping out a friend or visiting family. I love helping others. What goes around comes around!
Bailey, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion has always been modelling and acting. When I turned 18, I decided I would follow my dreams and move to Florida. So I did, but this is just my first stop in my journey. I have many more places to go!
Who is your inspiration in life Bailey? How do you keep inspired?
My family is what keeps me inspired. Every day they make me want to become a better person and succeed in life. Without them and there support I don't know where I would be. I am forever grateful and blessed.
We all make mistakes Bailey; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
There was a time during the first shoot I was nervous and stiff. You could tell in the photos as well. The client wasn't happy, and I wish I would've been more confident in myself back then.
Bailey, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I try to schedule each client orderly. So I can give each client my undivided attention. Making sure you get enough rest and keeping positive attitude will help you and your clients day go a lot better.
Please tell us, Bailey, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Sometimes your whole week can be full with shoots! You have to make sure you can be responsible for handling the pressure. Never book two shoots on the same day I've learned that the hard way!
Bailey, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
At a shoot when I was getting ready for fitting. I suggested the outfits be coordinated differently. The client loved my idea, and we used it for the shoot! The photos turned out great.
Bailey, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment is just meeting so many great people in the industry. You learn so much from everyone you meet. You create awesome friendships as well. I have never won anything as a model yet but as I said before my journey just started.
Bailey, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I usually get to pick a theme for the shoots when I work with the photographers. It's so much fun getting dressed up and makeup done. Plus the special effects of the smoke bomb make the final product look awesome!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never give up on your dreams. If you are truly passionate about something. Sometimes you can go to a million auditions keep trying, and don't give up. Also get good headshots plus a comp card. That will help you get into a great agency to rep you.
