    Default 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

    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 !

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

    I think you did a nice job on those photos too 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.

    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)

    As you know I don't post much, but I lurk everyday when I am eating lunch and I always look forward to updates on her and I always look closely at our Kohls ad for her pictures. Congrats on the job and good luck with the AG stuff!

    I think it'd be great if you did a couple of outfit changes....'

    But yay on the job and I hope she gets the AG thing.

    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. 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 Oh and Melly that is so sweet!
