Happy Birthday Elyse. We hope you received the balloons by now. There were 12, one for each month we've missed you and wished you were here. We love you :)
For those who don't know, or are newer to my blog......
A year ago today, my best friend and her husband lost their little girl. Elyse was born silently on February 3rd, 2008.....less than a week before their due date. Heaven gained an angel, but the gap in our hearts will always remain.

Does your kiddo have what it takes??..................
I have people ask me ALL the time about getting their kid(s) into modeling. PJ was signed with an agency in late 2007 after we were stopped in Target one day. While working with that agency, PJ and Maylie (my niece) worked with one of the most well known agents in the industry, Lindsay Stewart. Lindsay is a 12 year veteran of the modeling and talent Industry and has longstanding relationships with clients from all over the world. PJ has done jobs for companies like Roxy, Paul Frank, Disney, Stride Rite, Target, Carters, etc (you can currently see her on Playhouse Disney commercials, in the toy section at Target, and online at PaulFrank.com). Lindsay started her own agency - www.ZuriModelandTalent.com in September, 2008 and we are THRILLED to be working with her again! The photos above are just a few of the many gorgeous and talented kids she works with.
So what does this have to do with anything?
Lindsay and I are holding a MODELING CONTEST! If you think your kiddo should be modeling, this is your chance! You can enter children even up to their teens! So ANY age is fine!!
***BEFORE YOU ENTER, please know that modeling can get very busy during times, so please only enter if you are willing to sometimes drive up to Los Angeles (mostly the Santa Monica, Hollywood, etc areas) 2-3 times per week (so obviously this contest is for people in the LA and surrounding LA areas who can drive there pretty easily). Now speaking from first hand experience....it really varies. No, you won't need to drive up to LA 2-3 times a week EVERY week....for instance, you could go a month or so without going to anything...and then all of the sudden within a month you're going up 5 times. It really just depends and varies. Notice is usually pretty short, so you need to have a pretty flexible schedule/job to be able to do this.
***Entries must be received by Friday - February 20th, and the winner will be announced on or around February 23rd!
*Please email your entries to ME at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is what I need:
1. Child's name
2. Child's date of birth
3. Child's clothing size and current weight.
4. Parents name(s)
5. Contact info - including email address, telephone number.
6. At least 2, but no more than 3 current snapshots of your little one (be sure to include one headshot and one full body shot).
Lindsay will choose the winner, and he/she will be signed with Zuri Model and Talent!!!
So now you're thinking, ok, well why don't I just submit photos to the agency myself??
Well for 2 reasons!
1. The winner will receive a FREE photo shoot (in the San Diego area....so if the winner happens to live out of the city, they will need to come to San Diego for the shoot) with me (to provide head shots, etc to Lindsay for the website)!
2. Normal submissions are sent by regular mail....so this would save you time from getting prints done, mailing them out, etc. You just email me the info and you're done! "
Please feel free to forward or pass this on to anyone you think might be interested! :)
Let the entries begin!!!!
Good luck everyone!!!
