"Bailey has the biggest heart. Her confidence and empathy towards others are two of her many great qualities. Her plans for the future are about helping others feel good about themselves. I am so proud of her." That's Bailey according to her mother, and I couldn't agree more.
I've known Bailey for about a year now. We first met at a photography workshop in Pickerington. She was a featured model for a natural light scene and a neon paint setup. One of the photos that Bailey helped me create at the workshop was one of two published in the July 2019 issue of Shutter Magazine.
Bailey was such a natural in front of the camera, and her caring, easy-going personality shined through as we worked to create her portraits.
Almost a year after the workshop, Bailey came to my studio to create more portraits for her ever-expanding modeling portfolio--she's a featured model at Columbus's biggest modeling and talent agency, Heyman Talent Agency.
Even more impressive than her blossoming modeling career are her plans to major in biology at The Ohio State University this fall. After her undergraduate studies, Bailey plans to attend dental school. She's always wanted to pursue a career in medicine. For one, her parents are both nurses. She also believes that confidence can radiate from a good smile, and she wants to help as many people as she can find their confidence.
Bailey also hopes to travel and provide dental care as part of a missionary trip to different countries where people may not be able to afford dental care or don't have access to proper care.
Bailey has a bright future ahead. Her generous spirit will undoubtedly carry her towards success and a rewarding future helping others.
I'll let Bailey's mother have the last word: "I am most proud of her faith. She stands up for what she believes in without fear, and at her age that speaks volumes to me and those around her."
