Meet Houston Burleque Pinup Model Sierra

July 10, 2015

DSC_4407-Edit

How long have you been modeling? About a year, but it wasn’t until January of 2015 that I decided to actively model.

How did you get started in modeling? My hair stylist asked if I would be a hair model because I was one of her only clients that let her dye my hair bright reds and pinks. I thought it was really neat for her to ask me so I modeled and learned that it’s not easy! I was shaking and so nervous, but something about it made me fall in love with it.


What type of Model describes you or your niche of modeling? Right now I do mainly Pin Up. I want to focus on classic pinup poses but with some modern flare.
What Advice would you give teen models are other models that want to do what you do? Be nice to everyone! You really never know when you’ll be asked to do a shoot and that random ¬†person you thought you’d never see in real life that you made a catty remark to on social media is there… And doing your makeup! Do not talk bad about people because they will find out. I’ve heard so many horror stories of girls doing this then being blacklisted from certain photographers. Really the only time it’s appropriate to talk negatively about someone in the industry is if they took your money and you did not get the product but other than that being nice goes a long way, and it’s just a better look ūüėä

What type of model do you want to get into that you are not in? More artistic, avant garde type shoots with crazy outfits and dynamic makeup and hair that may not scream traditional beauty but as art is beautiful.

What is the hardest and easiest thing about modeling from your experience? The hardest is making the time. I have a 3 year old, I’m in college, and I work. Balancing my life and my modeling life can be tough but it’s very rewarding.

The easiest … Well for me nothing is easy. But I love doing it and when you’re done and the photographer captures some excellent shots of you then all those moments of practicing till you’re sore and having your hair teased to death ¬†are totally worth it!

What expectations do you expect when modeling? I expect the people I’m working with to be professional and organized. I always hope that the outcome is that myself and the photographer get some lovely pictures that we can both be proud of.

_MEB1227-Edit

What disappointments have you found in modeling? For me, personally, I’ve found the bigger your personality is the more opportunities will easily be present. I am naturally quiet and most likely not going to walk up to someone I don’t know in order to network. I am working on this because it’s a vital necessity in growing your brand but for those of you who think maybe you’re too quiet or too short or too anything just stop! You can do anything you want, it just takes practice like anything else.

Where do you see yourself in a year as far as the modeling aspect? I hope to be a more established alternative/pinup model in the Houston area working with more photographers and doing events. I’ve met so many people in the last few months that I’m truly so happy to know and really can’t wait to keep meeting new amazing people!

Thank you so much

I was asked to do a photoshoot with pure bred horses for the Houston Polo club. It was my first photoshoot and I was pretty nervous.

What advise would you give teen models and other models that want to do what you’re doing?

Do only what you feel comfortable doing. You don’t have to take your clothes off to model. You also shouldn’t shame the models that choose to. I would also advise everyone to bring a good friend to shoots for safety reasons and to help you out if needed.

What is the hardest/easiest thing about modeling from your experience?

In high school I battled weight issues, and I think I’ve been battling confidence issues ever since because of that. At photoshoots I’d see girls skinnier than myself and I’d become insecure and that can show through photographs. This past year I’ve really learned a lot about myself and come to completely love who I am and appreciate the way I look. I want other girls to stop comparing themselves to each other and appreciate the beauty they have themselves.

What disappointments have you found in modeling? I’m quite disappointed in other models and how I hear them speak about each other. Body shaming is no ok and I do not tolerate it. No one is perfect, and I think it’s very repulsive to hear someone point out another’s flaws. We should all be supportive and help bring each other up, instead of trying to take each other down.

What Advice would you give teen models are other models that want to do what you do? I would tell them do your research, don’t shoot with a photographer you know nothing about!, Don’t do anything that your inner voice says its questionable!! Stay true to yourself, talk with the photographer- they are real people too!! And network- get involved with Workshop photographers. ¬†Build a network of photographers and models. It does not happen overnight!¬†

What is the hardest and easiest thing about modeling from your experience? The hardest thing is the job, being in highschool you can’t just take off whenever and go to a job. ¬†We have had to pass on a lot of jobs due to being during the week and in the early part of the day. ¬†Education is most important! ¬†The easiest is just being Me behind the camera!!¬†
