What is unique about me is my style. I am versatile and work well in all kinds of settings. My style and look themselves are unconventional and eye-catching.
Luanna, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Young Model?
I aspire to become either a neurosurgeon or neurologist. I love learning and enlightenment. I started as a young model in my photography classes when l saw how natural being a model was for me. I enjoyed being thrown into creative settings and loved telling a story through the photos.
Who is your inspiration in life Luanna? How do you stay inspired as a Young Model?
My inspiration is most definitely my parents. They are the hardest workers l know, and without their impressive work ethic, l wouldn't be the relentless and lively girl l am now. I stay inspired by looking at all the beautiful art created by fellow photographers and models around the world.
We all make mistakes Luanna; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
I wish I would've continued with my acting and dancing career. Well-roundedness is something I've always strived for.
Luanna, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
My work ethic is very concentrated and thorough. I like to know exactly what kind of goals to aim for with my modeling and to keep an amicable relationship with my client. Positivity throughout a shoot creates a feeling of comfort and trust, which l feel are imperative for the most optimal photos.
Please tell us, Luanna, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
My family and work come before all. Social life and friends come after.
Luanna, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
A lot of time, disputing over which point of view to take is futile. One must establish a common ground where the other party can find commonality and benefits from your perspective. I've done this several times at work, where I've needed fellow employees to participate and put in more effort into other areas for the establishment to work successfully.
Luanna, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Young Model.
As a young model, l have not had far too many great accomplishments, but one of my proudest is going to a meet up where l shot with numerous photographers in a studio, allowing for many different styles to be utilized and a lot more experience with both people and art.
Luanna, 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 have shot many times with fellow photographer Travis Acquaro, and l have done dramatic makeup and styling to make the composition of our photos pop. I loved putting together outfits and makeup to match.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Young Model?
To relax, the modeling comes from the purest parts of us, the vulnerable and authentic ones.
