Hey, everyone, I'm Lacey! I'm a 28-year-old hairstylist living in California's beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. 

I'm that bubbly girl who is always smiling. I've got the biggest heart and I enjoy helping others in any way I can 

A few thing's I enjoy. Hmm... I love doing almost anything that evolves being outside! Don't let the pretty face fool you, this girl doesn't mind getting dirty! ;) camping fishing riding my dirt bike playing football with the guys, laying out on the beach, swimming, riding my beach cruiser, campfires, the list goes on and on! 


Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).

Our readers would love to get to know you more Lacey. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I'm the biggest dork! I love to make people laugh! Like they say, laughing is the cure for anything!

Lacey, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

My passion... Ooh boy, that's another hard one because I have so many but it has to say one of my biggest passion is love! Yes, you read that right, love! Loving and being loved is one of the life's greatest gifts! You can love so many things. Love isn't only about loving people, it's your job, your new pair of shoes, the wind blowing in your hair, the sound of a child's laughter ext. Love is everywhere all you have to do is take a second to see it! 

As a little girl growing up was tough I came from a broken home and had to move a lot from school to school I was bullied I was made fun of. So often I would pray and dream about being a model. I wanted to be the pretty girl on TV or the beautiful women in the magazines that everybody liked and talked about. I just wanted to fit in.

Well being raised by a single mother was really rough and we didn't have to allot of money. For someone, my height and size no agency wanted to work with me. I was"the model type" I was to "short and stalky" so in other words the price was allotted higher for me. In their eyes, some saw me as easy money. While others saw me as a waste of time. As heartbreaking that was for me I learned to allot about people and I'm thankful for that. 

I had given up even trying to become a model. I thought no one would ever accept my body type in the modeling industry. Well, I was wrong! Last year a new door opened for me! A well know photographer I had been following on social media started not only following me but started liking photos of myself! I couldn't believe it! Well, he ended up reaching out to me and was interested in shooting! He told me I have a really great chance of making it in the modeling world! I thought I was dreaming lol well long story short here I am a couple years later and doing what I always dreamed of doing! 

So all I have to say is, LADIES and GENTLEMEN please don't you ever and I mean EVER give up on your dreams! 

Who is your inspiration in life Lacey? How do you keep inspired?

My father. The last 5 years he's been battling cancer and I have learned so much from him. He inspires me every single day

We all make mistakes Lacey, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I wish I had a model realize form from my first photoshoot. Therefore I'd have rights to photos of myself

Lacey, 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?

It's all about scheduling. You need to book accordingly. I give myself to much time with every client. Is rather have time in between rather than being rushed

Please tell us, Lacey, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

I would have to say the first time I dealt with a not so very professional photographer I kept my cool and was the bigger person 

Lacey, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
To be honest I really can't say that I've ever persuaded anyone a colleague that is at work

Lacey, 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?
I must say considering I've only been modeling year my biggest accomplishment would be that I have already been published in three different magazines and chess got notified that I was accepted and will be published in a 2018 calendar

Lacey, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One time me and a photographer were trying to do a wet shirt and wet hair look and in the middle of the shoot my hair was drying so I just grabbed a squirt bottle and started misting my hair well the photographer thought it looked awesome with the light behind me so he started taking pictures and they turned out amazing

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Have fun! It shouldn't be stressful in any way! Love yourself! Don't let 1 bad experience stop you from conquering your dream! 

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands, and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes and I'm open to almost anything but no erotic. Nude is ok to add long as it's classy

Now for the best part Lacey! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
