Q2: What is the most difficult thing about being a model?
DS: In my opinion, the most difficult thing is “aging out” of a certain “type” or category. Early in my career, I was a swimwear model for Body Glove, and I did that for a long time. Although I am quite fit, I don’t look like a 23-year-old-surfer-chick anymore. That transition was hard for me, and I wasn’t ready to start wearing one pieces to do mommy-n-me catalogs.
Recently, I booked a great swimwear shoot at age 31 with BlissOn Swimwear. https://www.bliss-on.com/ My swimsuit modeling days are not over yet! Professional swimsuit modeling is one of the many fun things that I got to do, but it’s not the only thing I do. There are lots of things that make me beautiful and unique. I want to celebrate those things every day, regardless of what type of jobs I am booking at the time.
