However, since she was a minor, the school provided the work permit needed before hiring a child.

Her first photography session apparently was with Macy’s American departmental store. She has since modeled for several other companies. For instance, she worked with Ford Models for about four years before she sought another agency because Ford was not contracting young models anymore.
