Firstly Sonny, how would you best describe yourself?
Sonnyplease tell us your talent/work rate per hour?
Sonny. Tell us ABOUT yourself.
I am an aspiring model, building my portfolio and progressing every day in ways to grow as a model.
I work hard daily to get closer and closer to being successful.
I am a hard worker, and want to open new doors in my world as a model. I want to change the world with the messages that my pictures portray, and with a smile on my face the whole time! I do not have a rate per hour, as I'm slowly just building and collaborating. I would love to find a team or agent to work with, and make new magic happen!
I have worked hard and entered endless submissions; I won't give up.
I hope to bring out my uniqueness and passion for the modelling world!
Our readers would love to get to know you more Sonny. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
Growing up in my toddler years I did beauty pageants, and brought home many rewards to show for it. As I got older, it faded, and just recently five years ago I started picking back up on modelling. I've had insecurities and normal teen issues, being behind the camera makes me feel like I have a purpose. I am portraying a message to "someone" in hopes I can help them and their life one way or another. All my work I fully support, I never put my all into something I am not interested in, and I don't half do anything either. I give my all, and for the last five years I've given my all, and I will continue to do so!
Sonny, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I want to help humans feel better about themselves, whether they're sitting in my chair at the salon or viewing a picture of me portraying a unique message.
I work as a full-time cosmetologist; I model, my whole life has been quite "girly", some would say. When I see a theme I chose, and a hairdo I created, or the makeup I put on myself following endless amounts of pictures, remembering the hard work, and sweat and posing I did to create that picture (with the help of a team), makes me smile, it shows me I matter, I am good at what I do, and I can do anything, you can do anything, as long as you set your mind to it.
Who is your inspiration in life Sonny? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life my uncle and grandma (deceased now) who raised me my child/teen years. My mother who was and has been by my side always, no matter what. They all made me who I am today.
My siblings, they give me the motivation every day to keep chasing my dreams, to love unconditionally, and to never give up.
my past, made myself and my future I am today. and the love of my life, he tells me I'm beautiful every day!
Myself your body is a temple and better believe you must take care of your body and soul!
My work, and portfolios inspire me to be better and do better! The opportunities are endless.
We all make mistakes Sonny; 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 have not been given a chance to work with any colleague/team or agent. I cannot answer that question.
Sonny, 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?
I plan, and use my planner hourly!
Time is the essence, and I believe if you give someone your word they shall keep theirs. Stay in time, prioritize and organize, and make sure you communicate!
Please tell us, Sonny, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Planning out of town shoots! ive always supplied my own wardrobes, props, hair, and makeup...remembering every necessity for a shoot is a must!
I'd say make a list and plan...again!
Sonny, 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?
When I had a known local photographer ask to use my work for a project they had pinned.
Sonny, 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 always enjoy picking out my own wardrobe and theme for a shoot! Allows my creative side to show.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
be persistent and NEVER NEVER give up!
