The Apple “One to One” Campaign is up and running: http://www.apple.com/retail/learn/one-to-one/. “One to One” is a cool way for Mac users to learn about their Apple products. This was a fun shoot and I spent the day playing with iPads and Macbooks. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to work on such a fun print shoot! Thank you to all who were involved!

Exciting news! I booked a new commercial print campaign! This is my second print booking this year.
Special thanks to Michelle Metzner at Currently Casting and to my awesome print agent, Aurora at KSR Models for submitting me.
On Monday I had a Commercial Print Audition with Currently Casting Inc. This was the first time I’ve auditioned for this casting office.
The audition was held at On Your Mark Casting Studios in Sherman Oaks. Lucky for me, this office is just a hop, skip and a jump from my apartment. I left the munchkin with my awesome hubby and made it to the Studio in record time.
Once I arrived, I signed in and looked up my bar code. For those of you who are not familiar with “the bar code”, let me fill you in. Maybe 4 years ago a new, Industry recognized casting site called “Casting Frontier” popped up. This site assigns each actor with a bar code that links to their online actor’s profile. The casting offices that use Casting Frontier scan each actor’s bar code right before the audition to link that profile to the actor in the room.
I was paired with another actor for the audition and I felt like we had a great rapport, which is always a good thing for auditions. When it was our turn, we were introduced to the casting director, Michelle Metzner. What a sweet woman! Michelle was so likable and friendly in the room. It was so nice to meet her.
Our bar codes were taken and we were photographed for the print casting call

I had a print callback on Valentine’s Day for a Jeans Company. I won’t say which one, but I will say the callback was held at 5th & Sunset Studios in Santa Monica.
I arrived early for my 10:45 AM callback. I had my sweet pea in tow and my good friend Brittani came with me to take care of her while I auditioned.
The models were asked to wear a black swimsuit to the callback and upon arriving were given jeans to try on for the client’s approval. Models who were approved were then photographed.
I was brought to the changing area with a group of 3 other girls. One girl was already back there finishing up. The jeans were in all cuts, including high and low waists as well as bootcut and straightleg.
Now, let me just say something about the audition process.
It never ceases to amaze me the things that actors/models say on set. For my readers out there, do not EVER complain or badmouth a product on set or in an audition. Especially when the clients are sitting right around the corner!
Two of the ladies around me were making smart comments about the high waist jeans and the leg cuts, but what they failed to understand that the callback was not about them, it was about finding the right model for the PRODUCT. While the 20-some-year-old models may not choose that particular cut, the product is being marketed to a different demographic. And it is RUDE and DISRESPECTFUL to trash the product on set.
I always worry that the client or casting director will overhear their conversations and think that I am among the trash-talkers in the situation. I usually keep my mouth shut, distance myself from them or try to say something positive about the product.
So, the moral of the story, be GRATEFUL for every audition. Do NOT trash the product on set. And remember that not only are you auditioning for the current job, but for other opportunities with that same casting director down the line.
Now, back to my experience.
The first pair of jeans I was given was not a good fit for my body type. The second pair was a different style and much better fit. I was sent over to the casting director, Michael, and the photographer, Matt.
I was thrilled to have the opportunity. And I’m thankful to casting, and of course to my agents at KSR Models for the opportunity.
Good news! I booked a commercial print campaign. Company and Product TBA. I shoot on Friday.
Special Thanks my print agent, Aurora, at KSR, to Yvonne Armstrong at Armstrong Casting for inviting me to audition, and to everyone involved in this Print Campaign for choosing me!
KSR Models sent me to a Print Campaign Casting at Ava Shevitt Casting in Santa Monica. I just booked back in with KSR last week and was thrilled to be sent on an audition already. The Casting was for Sprint.
In May I was cast as a print model for the Lynnina Swimwear line.
And now the Lynnina Swimwear website is up and you can catch a glimpse of me on the homepage. Check out the new website to see for yourself: http://www.lynnina.com/
KSR Models sent me to a Print Campaign Casting at Armstrong Casting in Hollywood. The wardrobe was upscale casual and I wore black pants with a fitted denim 1 button jacket.
I was invited to audition for several print castings at Armstrong Casting last year and I’ve always enjoy the experience. First the photographer takes a couple of photos, then they flip on a video camera and ask a couple of questions so they can get a better sense of who you are.
As I left Armstrong Casting I received another call from KSR. They had a straight to callback print audition for me at Crash Casting and they were looking for real couples, so they asked if my husband would go as well. Oh, and we had to be in Santa Monica by 3:30 PM. The time was 2:30PM.
So, I called my husband to see if he was interested. He is not an actor, but after many of engagement and wedding photo shoots, he said he would try it out. So I swung by our apartment and picked him up and we braved the afternoon traffic down the 405 to Santa Monica. We made it just in time, found the studio at 525 Broadway. After we arrived, we took a couple of photos together, spoke to the director and client, and then were released.
Special thanks to my print agents at KSR and Casting Directors at Armstrong Casting and Crash Casting.
Yesterday KSR Models sent me to Beachwood Studios for a print casting. The Print Campaign was for Levi’s Jeans. I arrived at the studio wearing jeans and high heels, as asked for in the breakdown. I wore light make-up and my hair down, which looked great on this particular day.
I checked in with Rupert, who was very nice. There was not wait and I quickly met the photographer and assistant to took my measurements. The photographer instructed me to pose for the audition and after a couple quick shots, I was released.

Special thanks to Casting Director Yvonne Armstrong for the audition.
Oh what a day! I had both a callback and a print casting. Oh, the life of an actress at it’s best!
Richie at CU called this morning to say that I had been called back for the CBS Promo! How exciting! Though, then I realized that I had a print casting at nearly the same time. I called and e-mailed Aurora at KSR Models to see if I could go to the print casting early, and she said that I could go anytime between 1:30 PM and 5 PM. What a relief.
I arrived at 200 S. La Brea for the call back at Ross Lacy Casting. I primped in the bathroom for a couple minutes and then signed in. I was paired with 3 different people for the audition and was in the last group for this promo.
Afterwards I jumped in the car and headed to Armstrong Casting today for a print casting. The Print Campaign was for US Cellular. The attire: young, hip mom.
I’ve been invited to print castings at Armstrong Casting a couple times this year and I always enjoy the experience. First the photographer takes a couple photos, then they flip on a video camera and ask a couple questions so they can get a better sense of who you are.
Special thanks to Casting Directors Ross Lacy and Yvonne Armstrong for the auditions.
Aurora at KSR Models sent me to Katie Taylor Casting for a print casting. The Print Campaign is for National Rent-A-Car. The audition was held at 201 Ocean Park Casting Studio.
This is my first time auditioning for Katie Taylor, so I was thrilled to receive the call. The audition was the same day as my last day of filming for “A Simple Conversation”, but Aurora gave me a range time and asked me if I could make it before 6PM. Luckily I was able to work it out. I finished my last shots for “A Simple Conversation” and rushed over to Santa Monica for the casting.
The Casting notice said not black and white, so I arrived wearing a cute red shirt with polk-a-dot sleeves. There were a number of girls of different ages and with different looks. When it was my turn, I met the photographer and posed for a couple of photos. Lets hope they are looking for a blonde!
