My Summer

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Thursday, September 19, 2013,
Hey, lovelies! :) 

I know it's been a while since I've blogged, but that's only because, thank goodness, I've had a super-busy summer! 

Most of my summer was spent in a studio--either photo studios (or on-location sets), or the dance studio. Yes, it's true; I spent half of my summer wearing a dance leotard! Between dance clothes and bikinis, I really don't know what I'd do without spandex. ;)

Some of this season's activities have included magazine shoots, including photos for an instructional ar...

Hi everyone! I hope you're doing well. 

I just found out that Stan Rudnick and I got published on Sessions Magazine's website. Go ahead and check out the entry here:

In other news, the same photographer and I have been doing some test shoots. Hopefully good things will come out of them! I want to keep quiet for now, but in two months or less, I should have a better idea if anything has come of them. 

I also have a ...

What Goes Into a Professional Modeling Photo Shoot?

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Thursday, February 28, 2013,
Hey everyone! 

My shoot last Tuesday was great! For those of you who might be wondering, the shoot was collaboration between a photographer friend and me, for ourselves, without a client--though we may end up sending some of the shots to some magazines. Time will tell. :) 

The great thing about not having a client involved is that we get to choose the shots that we like, and the editing gets done much more quickly. In fact, I already have some images back! I've put one right on the website's fr...

5 Model-Tastic Beauty Secrets that YOU Need, Too!

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Monday, February 25, 2013,
Hey, everyone! 

So, recently, when doing my makeup, I happened to notice how the products that really make a difference are the ones that are the most underrated. In fact, while the fashion world goes on and on about this season's lip, eye, and nail colors, millions of women around the world are left thinking, "Yes, but don't you have to be model-gorgeous and 18 years old to use these outrageous colors?"

Well... not really. In fact, if you've ever seen a collection of model polaroids, you k...

2010 is Ancient History ;)

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Tuesday, February 19, 2013,
Hello, lovelies! 

After a quick turn of events, it transpires that I might not actually be shooting this weekend--oh, how logistical factors can mess with things! B-) However, In lieu of new material, and as an apology gift to you from me, here's an old video clip that I just found, for the first time, a few days ago! It dates back to 2010 (ancient history in modeling and internet terms, I know), and is from the Amir Bakshi Hair Studio's campaign that got me my first billboard! Only a few seco...

An Upcoming Photo Shoot

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Sunday, February 17, 2013,
Hey, everyone! 

Guess what? I am so excited! Pending my physical therapist's approval, I have my first photo shoot since my dance accidents planned for this weekend! Now, I don't want to jinx anything, so knock on wood, but we arranged for this Friday. We're planning on doing some material that's a little different than anything I've done before, so be on the lookout! 

Hopefully, this will be the first of many changes to come, including going back to my regular dance--and life--schedule.

New Tabs!

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Friday, February 8, 2013,
Hey there! 

I've been working on some new things this past week, including the website. If you look now, you will see sub-tabs under the "modeling" tab. I am also planning on adding video sometime soon; hence, the currently-empty video tab. :) 

Besides the website, I've been talking things over with a bunch of people from the industry. Soon I will be shooting some new material, and I'm so excited for that moment! 

In terms of dance, I started physical therapy yesterday, and they're placing me wi...

Brand-new blog!

Posted by Rachel-Elise Cotter on Sunday, February 3, 2013,
Hey there! After a several-year hiatus, I have started to blog again! I am making some changes and am really excited for what 2013 is going to bring me, in terms of modeling and dance! 

Right now, as most of you probably already know, I am dealing with some injuries, procured while dancing. This means that I won't be shooting much--or anything--for a while, let alone dancing, but I'm still planning some pretty cool stuff with some pretty cool people, and I am so excited for when we'll finally ...
