It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you an exceptional young lady who hails from Brisbane, Australia. Taliah Brooke, http://www.modelmayhem.com/3013625 is a delightful young model full of enthusiasm and zest for modeling. She has experienced only a few shoots thus far but she has gained amazing confidence. What really impressed me is her ability to do various genres from fashion to pinup and her animated expressions and clever poses. My best wishes accompany her for this her first ever modeling competition.
For your kind consideration I would like to present Ms. HOLLY WILSON as a candidate for THE LIST's "NEWbie Model of the Week" Contest. (MM#2712166)
Recently moving back to Arizona from the Pacific Northwest, Holly is anxious to renew her aspirations towards her modeling portfolio and ultimate goals.
With Pacific Island roots, Holly's fresh and unique "girl next door" looks are certainly "eye catching" and pleasant. My experience working with Holly was nothing short of wonderful and she was a complete professional.
Although Holly has very limited modeling experience, I believe she has all of the positive traits to represent Model Mayhem's "THE LIST" NEWbie Model of the Week.
5'8"-125-34C-Dress 4- Shoe 7.5 - Brown Hair, Brown Eyes, Light Brown Skin.

With only a few shoots under her belt, everyone is asking who this brunette beauty is. I have shot Natalie on two separate occasions now and I must say she learns fast. From our first shoot to this one is a night and day difference.. I think Natalie should do very well here and I hope you do too..

A “diamond in the rough” is the best way I can describe 20-yr old Jessica Candice (www.modelmayhem.com/2620496), my entry in this week’s contest.
There’s no question this young woman has an amazing look and camera presence, and a huge amount of potential.
With years of experience in pageants, runway shows, and mannequin modeling, she’s using the Model Mayhem experience to continue modeling while going through college, and someday move to a larger market to take professional modeling to the next level.
She's also got her sights set on being published in one of the Playboy brands someday!
She’s most deserving of the recognition and assistance this contest and exposure will give her. Enjoy the stunning and versatile looks of Jessica!
On behalf of Jessica, thank you for considering her in this week’s contest. Best regards,
Members, I would like to introduce to you Pamela Marie K MM# 2891591.
I've worked with Pam on a number of occasions and the only thing more striking than her beauty is her versatility. The first image was taken from a studio shoot we completed recently while the other images were taken on location and again back in the studio shortly thereafter.
Please see her portfolio for additional examples of her ability to move effortlessly between looks. Pam brings a level of enthusiasm, motivation and professionalism to every shoot, making her a delight to work with.
From the fiery furnaces of Australia comes the feisty redhead Natasha Crowe.
http://www.modelmayhem.com/2727321 Natasha has the determination to succeed and is building up her portfolio rapidly. I was impressed by the way she always turns up fully prepared and early to a shoot . She has a dynamic, outgoing personality which shows in her confidence and the variety of genres she is able to do. Natasha is a chef by trade and with looks like this I would not be surprised if marriage proposals coming flooding in from all over the world soon! Best wishes for the competition, Nat!
Oh my goodness...THANK YOU on behalf of Holly to all of the Top Drawer voting members for the selection of Holly as the "NEWbie Model of the Week!!! I'm sure she will be very thrilled! And GIANT KUDOS to the other photographers and models with such beautiful work as well!
I am pleased to introduce 19 year old Sophia Travella (www.modelmayhem.com/3032209) as my entry for Model Mayhem's Newbie Model of the Week. I first worked with this beautiful young model since her third shoot soon after she joined Model Mayhem. I was very impressed with how well she followed direction and retained that information. She is interested in pursuing alternative modeling and is an absolute joy to work with. She has great communication skills, she’s creative, smart and collaborative. I look forward to working with her more in the future. Thank you for your consideration.
For your kind consideration I would like to present NEWbie Model Ms. Lauren Natalie. (MM#3096369) The images presented for your viewing were taken a week ago and represent her current look. Lauren is quite a talented young woman and has multifaceted interests which of course include modeling, singing and acting. She will soon be departing for Nashville Tennessee to pursue both modeling and singing. (What a voice I might add!) When working with Lauren she was totally prepared, focused, easily followed directions, had a great attitude and was simply delightful to shoot with. I believe that this young lady has quite a career ahead of her and I'm confident that she will be successful at whatever aspirations she follows! Thank you for her preview.

For your consideration, I would like to re-introduce you to Jessica Vanoli (MM #2999052). She has been pursuing modeling as a serious hobby for several months now and has a great attitude. She brings good pose ideas and picks up new ones fast. It's always a joy to work with her.
I am presenting to you April;
http://www.modelmayhem.com/3155428 Absolutely one of the most fun and naturally talented new model's I have shot in a long time. Now do not let the glamour and beauty fool you. April lives on a farm, a big farm. She is a straight up cow girl and performs all the actual chores that come with living on a farm. But when you wash away all the dirt and grime you'll see she's a definite dime.

I believe that Sherrice has all of the attributes required to take her modeling aspirations to the next level. It was certainly wonderful to have had the chance to work with her!
