Shorty Award: Petite of the Week is Rose


I love Petite of the Week time, this week the Petite of the Week is Rose, from Pennsylvania!

I love the energy she shows in her photos and right off the bat I can tell she has a lot of personality, great skin, and that her eyes have natural expression. The top shot could inspire a job with a hair company or cosmetic company, the one with her jumping shows spunk, personality, and energy, it looks like a catalog shot, which is what commercial print modeling agencies want to see. Each week I feature a petite model and here is what Rose sent to me on not being too short to model:

As a petite model I have come across many obstacles. One of the reasons I have strived so hard to make a path for myself is because there is so many people out there who believe us shorter girls can’t make it. I strongly believe that people are only as confident in you, as you are in yourself. So with all the confidence I have and God’s help of course, I approached local boutiques and shops and managed to book a couple jobs for myself. As I go forward I hope to gain some great tear sheets for my portfolio and be able to contact reputable agencies with experience. Isobella is a great inspiration for me, and reading her blog has given me a lot more knowledge for the shorter model! - Rose

Aw thanks for the shout out girl! Modeling is not an easy pursuit, and most of the energy it involves is within, it is not easy to always stay upbeat and positive, especially since modeling involves a lot of self-work and rejection, but if you keep your spirit and market your self well,-it is possible to get opportunities.

Height sure isn't everything.


P.s: If you would like to be Petite of the Week, submit your headshot to and share how you are making strides in modeling despite your height.
