Kayla Shae. You might have seen Kayla on our Instagram page from time to time. Some of you might even follow her modeling Instagram account. We have the honor presenting you the opportunity to get to know Kayla but only here at Cammelly.
What and when did you get into modeling?
What got me into modeling, I don't know, ever since I was little I would do photoshoots with my friends and I loved doing it. I recently started building my media platform for modeling after I graduated at the end of May. My parents never really had the time to help me pursue my modeling career but now that I'm 18 I can do it on my own. To this day I still love doing photo shoots it doesn't feel like work that I just want to get over with and go home.
Being a model, what is your routine with staying fit?
I personally love going to the gym, i focuse on weight lifting. I go 3-5 times a week depending on how busy I am. I have the occasional protein bar to help build muscle. As for meals I'm a picky eater I eat very bland meals. I don't have a food plan. I like grilled chicken, steak, salad, fruit, pasta.
I love the swimwear, I love working with Ariel and modeling the suits for the site. I think it's going to turn out to be a great company. I love the amount of effort that is put into this brand. People I've graduated with are buying Cammelly swimwear I think it's come far in a short amount of time.
How would you describe yourself?
I'm blunt , I'm a tell it how it is person. I'm also very determined, if I have my mind set on something I will do everything I can to make it happen. I'm definitely an animal lover I treat my pets as if they were my children. Last but not least, I have a lot of love for my close friends but I think they can all agree that I have some sass.
What is something your followers or someone that knows you might not know about you?
I'm a certified veterinary assistant.
Where is your dream place to live?
I love Florida, I've lived here my whole life but I'm also interested in California. Either way my dream house would be on the beach.
Any favorite quotes?
I don't have any favorite quotes but I think Tyra Banks has some good ones to go by. I used to binge watch Top Model. "You can have all the potential in the world, but unless you have confidence, you have nothing." - Tyra Banks
"Don't chase the money... chase the passion. Because that's what's going to keep you happy and motivated and jumping out of that bed Monday morning." -Tyra Banks
What is the average day for you like when you're not shooting?
When I'm not shooting I'm planning shoots lol. Im either working my part time job at Style Encore Stuart, at the gym, shopping with friends or watching Netflix with my boyfriend.
Favorite food to eat on the go?
Chick-fil-a so good and so convenient.
Is there any struggles of an aspiring model?
There are struggles as there is with everything in life. Not everyone is going to book you, you can't fit everyone's standards. Also when you have your pictures taken you can notice every change about your body which could be good or bad. People will point out things you didn't notice but they don't like.
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering modeling?
Some advice that I'd give for people who want to model is don't give up and work really hard to make connections with people. Also you can't trust everyone you cross paths with. It's not always about the money it's about if that job is the right one for you.
What are your personal goals or dreams with modeling or life in general?
I would love to make modeling my full time job. Also I'm saving up to join a volunteer program in Thailand. They help improve animal welfare and positive reinforcement for big cats. (Tigers, leopards, lions ect.) The park is a breeding center for endangered species and a rescue center for unwanted pets and unreleasable wildlife. Tigers are my favorite animal.
Anything exciting planned for the latter part of 2017?
Hopefully I'll have some bigger modeling opportunities! I'll definitely be looking for an agency. Maybe be in a magazine who knows, I'm excited though. :)
