Tahnee is all the way from the Gold Coast Brisbane Australia, Tahnee is a true empowering woman she loves going to the gym as fitness is a huge part of her lifestyle. This pocket rocket lady has a true ambition for modeling and that’s why she’s working real hard each day to improve her modeling skills physically and mentally as she says:
“I moved to the Gold Coast in 2016 for more opportunities and to focus more on what I love, that being modeling and stepping out of my comfort zone.”
Tahnee also believes if we all practice these 2 power words in life which are the following aka Kindness and Love towards each other, then life as we know it will be a greater place for all to live in unity, in that said… She is very humble and truly thankful for every opportunity she gets in modeling to express herself.
Let’s find out more as our CEO Arne Schreuder interviews Tahnee Monique and Photographer Mike Brooke today – “Getting in touch with your inner Zen” Swimwear Special Edition 2021 August.
Welcome Tahnee & Mike, congrats on your cover feature with us for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA SWIMWEAR SPECIAL EDITION for the month of August 2021, tell us what’s your feelings and emotions right now?
MODEL TAHNEE MONIQUE – This is really an incredible opportunity I am truly thankful for!
PHOTOGRAPHER MIKE BROOKE – It’s a great honor to grace the cover once again with such an amazing team!!
Tahnee, please introduce yourself to our readers, fans and followers and give us a glimpse into whom you are and where you reside from and what it is that makes you stand out from the crowd in a small 4 sentence bio?
I am 27 born and raised in a little slice of paradise called Airlie Beach (The Whitsundays). I moved to the Gold Coast in 2016 for more opportunities and to focus more on what I love, that being modeling and stepping out of my comfort zone. I now live in Brisbane and have had so many amazing opportunities in this industry and I am extremely thankful for each and every one.
I am 4″11 which makes it really hard to get into modeling agencies but I have been fortunate enough to have come across some incredible photographers and been able to work with them and create exactly what I have been dreaming of since I was young.
In today’s cover feature AND photoshoot, the spotlight falls on you and the theme “IN TOUCH WITH MY INNER ZEN”, tell us what is it that stood out the most from this photo shoot together?
TAHNEE MONIQUE FROM A MODEL’S VIEW – The ocean is where I got to relax, ground myself and practice gratitude. So, with this particular Photoshoot, being close to the water and doing what I love really made me Zen and appreciate this incredible opportunity even more.
MIKE FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW – Well we shot this during the morning in winter, so that made for extremely cold and windy weather conditions right on the cliffs, and boy oh boy did Tahnee do an incredible job holding her balance and not showing she was absolutely freezing!!
“She is a trouper and one incredible model to work with always lots of fun and laughs.”
Let’s talk fitness Tahnee, what is it that makes living the fitness lifestyle so rewarding to you, as we are still going through the COVID-19 pandemic?
- Not only is it physically good for you it is incredible for your mental health and something that is more important than ever in these hard and uncertain times.
- Seeing how far you can push and prove to yourself that you can achieve the goals you set is also super rewarding.
- It is also a great way to meet people and learn new skills that we may never have thought we could do.
Tahnee, please describe Photographer Mike Brooke’s work in 3 striking words, what will those words be?
“Natural, Beautiful, Empowering.”
Women empowerment what does that mean to you in your own words Tahnee, and give us a story about yourself embracing the true essence of WOMEN EMPOWERMENT?
Women have all different ways of feeling empowered, but for myself it is definitely embraced so much more when I am doing photoshoots.
“I can express myself in a creative way and I feel free, I focus on myself and move with my body and to then be able to see the amazing work created after fills me with so much happiness, confidence and empowerment.”
