Keara BittelAge 8 DOB: 01/30/2009My name is Keara Bittel, and for the last year I have worked as a runway, photo, and fashion model. I have a huge passion for showcasing designer’s creations on the runway, acting, and just being in front of the camera. I model mainly high fashion, children’s wear, and designer works but I also enjoy creative projects like group photo shoots and commercial auditions. To date, I have worked with Kaylani's Boutique as a Brand Ambassador, Justice Clothing Company, and individual photographers. I have worked with Julian Peeples of Peeples Photography twice this past year for high fashion shoots. I have done runway shows for Majestic Events “Springtime in Paris”, SoBel Kids Fashion Show “Mystical Creatures”, Orlando International Fashion Week showcasing Jaylani’s Boutique designs, and Justice Clothing. I have had some photos published in Avalon Model and Talent Magazine (Oct. 2017), and all internet postings of my runway shows. I am available for photo shoots in Florida, but available to travel to other destinations in the US and Internationally. I am 4’4” tall, long natural blonde hair, and blue-violet eyes. I have an easy going personality, very easy to work with. I enjoy dance class, singing, reading, swimming, riding my bike, and playing with my friends.

Who is your inspiration in life Keara? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my mom; she was a big model in New York City. I keep myself inspired by watching runway shows on YouTube, practising my walk, doing photoshoots.
We all make mistakes Keara; 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.
One time at a runway rehearsal, a girl passing me on the runway tried to trip me on my way back. I wish that I had said something, but I did not for my designer's sake.
Keara , 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 prioritizing your clients’ needs?
My mom helps me prioritize by keeping a calendar full of runway events, photoshoots, casting calls. We are sure to book airfare in advance; we make sure everything is in date order as every client is important.
Please tell us Keara, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
My very last photoshoot I had to be strategic with learning and doing new poses to show my growth as a model in high fashion.
Keara, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I have had this happen at school with classmates. I've recommended better ways to do group projects, and my friends listen to my ideas.
Keara, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest professional moment as a model was my first runway show. If I didn't participate, I would never have known how much I love it, and it opened more doors for me to photographers, designers, etc.
Keara, 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 am always creative both on the runway and in photoshoots. I always walk according to what I'm trying to show case for the designer. I have a signature creative pose for the runway. I am audio very creative with poses in my photos and print work.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never give up, anything is possible! Keep trying every day to reach your goals. Believe in yourself.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I am looking to collaborate with designers, photographers for runway work in Europe. I am hoping to sign with international agencies for magazine print work. I do travel internationally and all over the USA.
