Hello! My name is Elroy and this is my very first submission to the Newbie Model of the Week Contest. I would like to introduce Cameryn Deborah MM# 2595402. She is an aspiring model like many, with a give-it-all attitude. Shooting this series in the city was a big challenge which she handled very well as soon as she overcame the anxiety of being the center of attention.
I hope you enjoy the work we put together. All images were shot using natural light.
In behalf of Nou, I want to thank all the members of the Top Drawer who voted for her this week. She's truly a lovely young woman and deserving of the recognition you're given her. Thanks again to all of you for your continued support.

I've been a little out of touch, but here is a submission for New Model of the week.
This was from Kyla's first photo shoot. We have more planned in a nice toasty warm studio, but I couldn't wait to share. She is very outgoing and open to direction while still a little shy and is interested in many styles of modelling.
Ladies and Gentleman of the Top Drawer, it is my pleasure to nominate Natasha Bell as my entry this week. While she has been a member for a while, she took over a year hiatus for a pregnancy and is just now working her way back into it. Each time we've shot she's impressed me with her agency stats (including height), her flawless complexion, her creativity and her attitude. Thank you for your consideration.
I would like to introduce a wondeful young model. Angela Brown. She is new to the scene but brings a great attitude and great disposition. She brings with her formal dance training which comes across gracefully on camera. She'll be a great addition to the Model Mayhem community. Good luck Angela..!!

Patrick, is Angela a member of MM? If so please help her with some publicity and help me in building a composite for her.
I'm running late so will include her in next week's contest after you confirm her membership.
