After launching my Summer Spokesmodel Program and receiving an overwhelming amount of applicants, I knew that I would need all the help that I could get. A part of me was a little nervous how I would handle this all on my own, while a majority of me was SO giddy to work alongside the gals and to create a team! So, I posted on my photography Instagram stories asking if anyone would help me out this summer. I did it kind of jokingly- thinking no one would even apply. But then my direct messages were flooded with people interested in helping me out!
The intern candidates went through an application and an in-person/over the phone interview process. I chose my interns based off of personality, drive, and enthusiasm for photography and growing a business. It was such a hard process because there were so many incredible gals who applied and really just wanted to pick everyone!
Meet the team!
Montana will be a junior at Texas State University Fall of 2017 and is studying Electronic Media. Her hobbies include: reading (Books, blogs, the back of cereal boxes, anything really), cooking/baking (she says Pinterest is her wonderland) and hanging out with her friends and family and dancing, if there is music on she’s dancing! Her favorite thing to take pictures of is people, especially candids, because she love capturing peoples’ emotions and memories. It’s so true that a picture is worth a `1000 words! Something that makes her unique is that she enjoys listening to film scores for fun, rainy days are my favorite and she loves Jesus! Montana says if she could eat any food for the rest of my life it would be….tacos because they’re so versatile! (My kinda gal pal!)
