Our very 1st assignment of the week was to get entirely naked and be drawn in the nude... seriously! Well the whole world has seen me in a thong, they may as well see the rest! All joking aside it was quite the experience. Having to stay perfectly still for ten minutes straight is a strange feeling. But I did it with no problem and I had a blast. I also got some wonderful drawings as a result which I really appreciate.

So we're down one more person, Aryn is gone and I wish her all the luck in the world. But now there are 11 of us and we have to continue to compete. Our photo shoot for the week was with Russ Flatt. The location was this stunning, mansion that must have been haunted! The theme was a sort of 1920's lounge environment. I feel such an affinity with the 1920's and it was so easy for me to throw myself into the shoot. There were two shoots actually: one for the girls and one for the boys but the boys got to choose one girl to join their shoot and they chose me. I felt privileged to have been in both shoots because the more practice I get the better I'll become. It was so easy to work with the boys. I'm actually a breeze to work with regardless of who or how many people I'm performing with. The pictures turned our terrific! Looking at myself in those pictures I feel like I'm looking at my great grandmother. They're realistically old fashioned and remind me of my family history. I love those pictures and I always will. It really was a fantasy shoot for me.
