Kristina Jordan in NYC!


In keeping with our theme of being thankful, today we want to publicly express how thankful we are for the opportunities we have to change our models' lives.  We scout our models in their hometowns, and then we get to launch their careers and facilitate their traveling to different cities around the world.  It is so rewarding for us to see our models experience new cities and cultures while pursuing a career in the modeling industry.

For example, pictured in this post is one of our newer models Kristina Jordan.  She is from Southern California, and just returned home from her first modeling trip to New York.  Kristina signed with us, and shot with Dolls Model Management just a few months ago. After her amazing test shoot our partners in New York were interested in her, so Kristina and her mom flew out for an NYC adventure.

I asked Kristina what she thought about New York and she said, "I think it would be cool to live here someday. It is so much fun seeing all of the buildings, big stores, and the tourist attractions. It does get a little colder than I expected but it's definitely worth it! It's been fun meeting the photographers and stylists.  They are all really nice and welcoming.  Mom is impressed with how kind and helpful people have been, how much easier it is to get around than I expected, and with seeing all of the places I've only heard about."

Kristina and her mom have both expressed that signing with Pulse Management and working with Stacey has made breaking into the modeling world much easier than they thought it would be. "I felt like I would be safer with an agent who would look out for me and represents my interests. Stacey is really awesome and fun and I know that I can go to him if I ever have any question. Mom and dad appreciate that Stacey cares about values and health as well as beauty. We feel Stacey has the knowledge and experience to guide my career to its maximum potential."

Lastly she said, "Our experience in NYC has been amazing! Instead of coming in alone knocking on doors in hopes off being noticed, we have the guidance of an expert team who are taking us to the best of the best."

When we read that we know that we are doing our jobs right.  We are so thankful for models like Kristina, and the abilities that we have to help shape their lives.

Update on Georgia Weeks


Seeing as it is Thanksgiving this week, we want to post about a few things that we are thankful for.  Today we are starting with this Oregonian beauty, Georgia.  Georgia signed with us, did her Dolls Development shoot in Hollywood, and has done these great shoots since.  Georgia is currently on hold for work in New York and Paris, so she has some very exciting things coming up.  We are looking forward to seeing what the New Year has in store for her, but in the meantime we are definitely thankful what she has already accomplished.  The fact that her mom is great to work with is just another thing we are counting our blessings about.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Brittany McPhee for Teen Vogue


We discovered Brittany McPhee in her hometown in Washington, and launched her career shortly after.  Some models take awhile to gain momentum in their careers, Brittany was not one of them.  We were thrilled when she shot this editorial for Teen Vogue magazine in May of 2010.  Not only did she look incredible in the pictures, this editorial was 8 Pages, which for any magazine is a big deal, but the fact that it was for Teen Vogue made it MAJOR.  Brittany went on to shoot two more editorials for Teen Vogue, which shows that they loved her as much as we do!

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 models.com, 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!


THROWBACK THURSDAY: Then and Now


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!
