update on Jazz

I have been so busy I thought I would give you gals a Jazz update. If these are annoying please tell me and I won't post them Smile

So last week we went to Chicago for an audition. We go to Chicago about once a week or every other for sure. Well I don't mind going for a job but to spend the time and money just on an audition I think kinda stinks as I am 2 hrs away. Well, I get a call for an ad for ad council. They do the public service commercials and ads. So we go and take the chance. Well we get there and Jazz is sleeping so I say lets not go in till you are fully awake. She tells me she is but I know she was just excited to go in. So we go in and while she is filling out her name the girls askes her if she has been modeling for awhile. I heard cricets... Jazz said nothing. So I sy she just woke up but started when she was 2. I thought that is it this audition is over cause now she thinks she is shy or that I am one of those mother's who drag their kids to auditions when they don't want to go. She takes phot's of Jazz and did say ""I can tell you have been doing this for awhile'' Well we leave and I am thinking in my head great, I drove all this way for nothing. I know I know, I was starting to get a little stage mom. Shame on me. Jazz said she never heard the gal say anything to her. Well yesterday I get a call that she got the job!!!!! Not only that but the pay is 500.00! Hello school clothes! So we go next week wed. I was so proud of her but realized I should be proud of her no matter if she gets it or not. Just for not being shy and loving what she does. We also got this email the other day so cross your fingers!!!!!

American Girl is working on a casting call for a few features in there magazine. The photo shoot will take place in Chicago the week of (CAN'T SAY). Jasmin is an option for them and would like to see recent photos of her by Monday 6/22. They are looking for a couple of headshots with a smile showing teeth and with her hair down so they can see the length. Also they would like a full length photo of her in a tank top and shorts. Please no makeup!

NOTE: This is for the cover, it will be a beach party feature and a hair feature.

Please cross your fingers!!! This is the cover of the magazine! These are the pics I sent what do you think?

I love hearing updates on everyone's lives !:D

That's really great she got that $500 gig! WTG Jazz!:cloud9:

I think you did a nice job on those photos too Biggrin Do you think you're allowed to do one more tank/shorts outfit to email them?? Or do they tell you not to overwhelm them with pics? I just thought, if you were allowed, maybe an outfit with different colors to those would be one more chance to see her before making their decision. Smile

Have you thought about taking her to a professional photographer with a lot of experience in headshots and model portfolios?

She looks really cute in the pictures, but to me the background is a bit distracting with the overexposure and cars. (but I am really critical as the photographers I studied under were extremely critical)

Oh yes, she has a comp card all done professional which they already have. I would NEVER use those pics for her card. American Girl called her agent and asked if I was at home with Jazz and if I was could I snap a few pics myself. I had about 5 minutes to do it since I got the email on monday. She just shot for them 2 weeks ago so they know her really well, they just needed a teeth shot real quick. I should look for her comp cards and show you all. Smile Great idea though about the other color clothes but the pics had to be in by monday so too late fingers crossed. Thanks girls for being so supportive Smile Oh and Melly that is so sweet!

Well I let her spend a big check here and there to keep things fun for her. She has modeled since she was 2 but this is the first year where we do a job once a week. As of last year around 20,000 but this year she is making about 2,500 a month:eek: American girl books for 2 days in a row and that is about a 1600.00 job. crazy huh! Anthony is like Jazz, are you going to buy me a car LOL! She was like yeah sure but it can't be better than mine.

They wanted us to go to LA for pilot season in Jan and Feb of next year to see if she could get on nick or something. If we do I will have to use some modeling money. Not sure yet if I want to do the whole La hollywood thing but still thinking about it.

WOW!!! :eek: She's got more money than I do!! That's so great though. I like that you allow her to spend some of it as well and not putting it all away for college or whatever. At least she gets to reap the benefits of her hard work.

I know some moms who are like no, it is all for school but how fun is that? About once every three months or so I give her about 300.00 and we go to the mall. She always buys her brothers stuff. Such a sweet girl. We are going to let her buy her own flatscreen tv this week. She was like can I buy one like dads (which is a 60 inch) I was like ummm no! She is still 10. I told her she can get like a 25in or something. She is so excited to buy her own tv. She is getting to old for her disney princess one she has now lol.
