Look Out New York!

Liz, Olivia, and Carson in NYC

Being a model is an interesting life, especially for a teenager.  If you're lucky you pack your bags and leave sometimes for months at a time to work in other cities and countries.  If you are in high school it can be hard to leave behind friends, sports teams, etc., and since most of your hometown friends aren't models it can feel a little bit lonely.  Thats why we encourage and love it when our models become friends. It is comforting to have an ally in a new city, and it also makes everything more fun.  It also is helpful to have someone else to talk to who understands the whole world of modeling, because they are trying to navigate it too.  We have seen a ton of pictures of Olivia and Liz together, and it makes us so happy to see two of our favorite models as best friends.  Olivia is from Colorado and Liz is from Minnesota, and luckily modeling (and Pulse Managment) brought these buddies together.  While in New York recently they met up with another Pulse Management discovery, Carson Bruner.  Carson has been modeling a little bit longer than these two, so they probably enjoyed learning the ropes from someone with more experience.  Keep taking these selfies girls, we love seeing how much fun you're having!

Olivia and Liz found a new friend!

Liz Kennedy in NYC

Man oh man, the heavens were smiling down on us when we found Liz Kennedy at a concert in Minnesota.  We have always known that Liz has the potential to be an incredible model, but her latests pictures are even better than we hoped for.  She is currently in New York City and these are some test shoots she took while working with our New York Partner, Fusion.  She is up for some pretty incredible jobs right now, so everyone keep your fingers crossed for this beauty.  She is on the cusp of something major if she books it!

Also, she now has a profile on, which is a huge accomplishment for a model.  See her profile here.

Emma Landen for Jazmin Chebar

We have seen our share of beautiful pictures in our day, but these images of Emma Landen are simply stunning!  They are from the Jazmin Chebar Spring/Summer 2015 Campaign. Our scouts discovered Emma in her hometown in Colorado and she has gone on to work in New York, Miami, and she shot this ad for Dior.  She signed with IMG Models, one of the biggest agencies in NYC, and the world.  These images just show what we saw when we discovered her as a 12 year old, a beautiful model who has the potential to do huge things!

Sara Grace Kelley in Hong Kong

We have posted multiple times about how much we love when our models go and work in Asia.  The money is great, and they get a ton of experience in front of the camera.  Pulse Management model, Sara Grace Kelley, has spend months over in Hong Kong and she did some pretty amazing work over there.  The pictures above show some of the jobs she did while in Asia, including this shoot she did for Vogue Italia.  Below are the final images she did for a client in Hong Kong.  We posted a behind the scenes look for the photo shoot here.  We love seeing the behind the scenes pictures and then comparing them with the final photos.  Great work Sara!

Hopefully today's post changes your opinion about the having the Monday blues.  For Major Moment Monday we are going back to the Fall/Winter 2013 of I Love Fake Magazine, when our girl Hannah Holman not only had an 8 page editorial, but she was on the cover! I Love Fake is a fashion magazine that is based in London, and they are known for having a very keen fashion eye. Case in point, we're pretty sure this is the only time we've seen Hannah with blue hair in a magazine.  Click here to see the rest of the photos from the editorial. These pictures of Hannah are edgy and beautiful, and we thought they were worth sharing with you!

Beautiful Birthday Girls!

Two of our models have celebrated birthdays recently, and we can't let anymore time pass by without wishing them a very happy birthday!

We discovered Carson Bruner in her native California, and she has been all over the world since we launched her career.  Carson was a finalist in the Elite Model Look competition, and she has since worked for companies like Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Christian Dior to name a few.  Happy birthday Carson, we can't wait to see where this next year takes you!

Charlee Pilon celebrated her birthday last week, and we can't say enough good things about this girl.  We waited for her to finish high school before truly starting her in the industry, and she was worth the wait! Charlee has spent many of her months since graduating in New York and she is taking the fashion world by storm, click here to see some of her accomplishments.  The best is yet to come for this beauty and we are pleased as punch to be a part of your journey!

Polaroids: Everything You Need to Know About Them

We get asked all the time about why models have to take "polaroids" and why they need to update them so often.  Beauty Look Magazine recently wrote an article about the importance of polaroids (along with having a portfolio or a "book" of one's modeling work).  If you are a model or want to be, please do yourself a favor and read this article! The next time you are asked to submit polaroids, don't complain or ask why, just do it!  If Kate Upton still has to submit her polaroids, so do you!


Welcome to our Olivia Hamilton edition of TBT: Then and Now.  We found Olivia in her home state of Colorado, and the above pictures are some of the very first polaroids we ever took of her.  Since we launched her modeling career Olivia has traveled through Asia, spent months at a time in New York, and made us proud walking some significant runways.  Just this week Olivia did a HUGE magazine cover and editorial that we can't wait to share with you.  We can't yet, but we will as soon as we are able to!

Tori Praver for Buffalo Jeans

I don't know if jeans have ever looked as good as when Pulse Management discovery, Tori Praver, is wearing them. These images for the Spring/Summer 2014 Buffalo advertising campaign are everything a denim ad should be.  Tori sure has come a long way (including snagging a Vogue Cover) since we discovered her in her hometown in Hawaii!

Pulse Management Introduces...

We have some incredible new girls that had their test shoots with Dolls Model Management recently, and we have been dying to introduce them to you all and to the rest of the fashion world.  It is worth mentioning that all three of them were scouted by Nancy Skoglund, during her first run at scouting.  Nancy is one of our model's moms who liked working with Pulse so much as a parent, that she decided she wanted to scout for us too.  If she is going to keep finding model like this for us, we think that she is going to have a very successful career as a model scout with Pulse.

All three of these images were shot at the Doll House in the Hollywood Hills by the insanely talented fashion photographer, Rodney Ray.  All three of these girls impressed us with their photos, and we are already seeing great things from them.  We'll keep you posted on how their careers develop.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hannah Holman for Burberry

We love the above picture of Hannah Holman when she spotted one of her Burberry ads while riding the Metro in London.  It goes to show you that no matter how long these girls have been modeling, they still get excited when they see their work.  These images are from when Hannah starred in Burberry's S/S 2010 Blue Label advertising campaign.  Burberry is arguably the most iconic fashion label to come out of London, and we were thrilled when Hannah was cast in their campaign.  It is amazing to think that Hannah, who we discovered in a small town in Utah, went on to star in a huge British Label's campaign.  It was definitely major, to say the least.

Liz Kennedy for Spur Magazine

Remember when we posted this about Liz Kennedy's amazing first NYFW?  Well before she hit the runways, she was working overseas in Japan.  We sent her to Japan so she would get some experience in front of the camera, and added to her bank account.  (For more about models and their finances, click here)  We love these photos from her editorial in Spur Magazine.  Spur is a Japanese publication, and we have been so impressed by the quality of the editorials we have seen out of Japan lately.  The styling, photography, and art direction are on par with the other top fashion capitals in the world.  We definitely saw Liz's confidence and overall modeling skills improve through her pictures, and we think that her time in Japan was time well spent!
