Stephanie please introduce yourself and tell us a bit more in what you do besides modeling?
I live in the same small town I was born and raised in, Elizabeth, Indiana USA, but I also recently relocated to LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY. I decided to raise my two kids here, and it’s been a great decision.
I also hold my Master’s Degree in Nursing Administration, but currently I am medically retired from the nursing field due to my multiple sclerosis diagnosis, but
“My passion will always be nursing!”
Other than Nursing and modeling, I am also a very successful business woman working as a consultant for Arbonne International, a company that works with vegan skincare, cosmetics, and nutrition products. Then I am also a devoted mother to my wonderful kids I care about a lot, as my family means so much to me in my life!
Stephanie modeling is a difficult industry to succeed in, how did you get into the industry?
I was signed at age 22 when I was at a casting call for my daughter who was an infant at the time. I stayed with that agency for 2 years before getting deeply involved in my family and nursing career. Once I had to medically retire from nursing and my kids were older, I decided to get back into modeling.
Once I had to medically retire from nursing and my kids were older, I decided to get back into modeling. I started social media specific to my portfolio, and I bloomed from there.
“Modeling is my escape into the world of art that I dearly love, and I will continue to stay with it as long as my body lets me.”
There are many photographers out there with different levels of experience shooting a variety of genre, what do you look for in a photographer and which genre do you prefer?
I am not opposed to working with a photographer who is just starting in the field because everyone has to start somewhere. Whether you are top-tier and always published or literally just bought a camera last week, I will work with you.
My particular favorite genres are:
- Editorial, and Glamour, but I am always willing to try new things as well, very open minded.
FUN FACTOR TIME WITH MOLLBABE MODEL STEPHANIE CHARNEY:
WE KNOW THERES A LOT THAT GOES INTO PREPARING YOURSELF FOR THAT PERFECT PHOTO SHOOT ON THE GIVING DAY AS A MODEL, WHAT’S YOUR ROUTINE YOU FOLLOW SHARE WITH US STEPHANIE? – What I do to prepare depends on how much responsibility is in my hands.
- I will scout locations, depending on the theme, a week before the shoot.
- I usually pick wardrobe a few days prior to the shoot. Pinterest is a great place to find makeup looks for a shoot.
- To make sure I look my best, I avoid bad foods the week of the shoot. The night before, I make sure to get enough rest and hydrate my body and skin well.
KEEPING FIT PHISCALLY & MENTALLY IS A KEY FACTOR IN THE MODELING INDUSTRY. TELL US WHAT DO YOU DO TO KEEP IN SHAPE? – Exercise, beauty, and diet are all extremely important in my world.
I go to the gym for cardio and weights 3-4 times per week. I get facials every other month, but I cleanse, tone, and moisturize every night. I don’t necessarily stick to a diet because I enjoy food.
I do eat healthy just because it makes me feel better, but the occasional junky meal is good for the soul sometimes just to treat yourself after a hard working day! “Modeling keeps me motivated to keep healthy and keep myself in shape everyday.”
THERE ARE SO MANY GIRLS AND GUYS WHO WANTS TO PURSUE A CAREER IN MODELING, WHAT WOULD YOUR MESSAGE TODAY BE TO ALL OF THEM WHOM WANT TO DIVE INTO THE INDUSTRY OF MODELING STEPHANIE, PLEASE SHARE YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM? –
Always be yourself, and do not conform to any unrealistic “standards” that may be thrown at you. Many models get plastic surgeries or enhancements because they try to look like the published or social media photos, but those photos are mostly photo enhanced.
The best example of being diverse is to remember Your unique features, size, birthmark, hair color, etc. are all what will make you stand out in the modeling industry. “Don’t change yourself to look just like everyone else.”
NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS FOR 2021? – “Keep on smiling its the best most wonderful exercise for the soul and well-being in life it self…”
QUOTE OF THE DAY ? – “Doubt kills more dreams than faith ever will… Faith and the believe in yourself is what will keep your dreams alive.”
