Feature in Bust Magazine

Thursday, December 28, 2017

That feeling when you walk into a store, pick up Bust Magazine off of the shelf, and see yourself!!! Earlier this year, I was contacted by Bust Magazine to be photographed and interviewed for their Dec/Jan 2018 issue (with Greta Gerwig on the cover!) and I, of course, had to say yes!

As a little girl growing up in the middle of nowhere, print magazines were my first portals into seeing bigger dreams, worlds, view points, etc., for the first time. Seeing myself in Bust Magazine is incredibly surreal and feels like a lifelong dream has come true!

I had the best time posing for Christopher Dibble at the beautiful Hi-Low Hotel for the amazing shoot - the hotel staff was incredibly kind and accommodating (holding the doors open for me while I struggled with several props and accidentally hitting myself in the face with them, of course!) and Bridgette Emard, Christopher's assistant, was incredibly kind and thoughtful.

Wanted to take a moment to thank Bry'onna (for being the best interviewer ever), Lisa, Meredith, Erika, and the entire Bust Mag team for making this happen! And finally, I just wanna say thank you to everybody who is reading this! Being surrounded by such a loving, beautiful inside and out group has meant literally the world to me. If you see the feature IRL, please send me a selfie with it so I can pretend I’m there with you, giving you a hug.
