Chi The Model

Message From Chi...
At the tender age of 5, I discovered my love for having my picture taken. This would eventually turn into an aspired modeling career well into my late teens. Being young and impatient, I took the safe, societal route and worked in corporate for 20 years.
I always thought my age and weight were barriers; I was actually the hindrance. Little did I know, what I had to offer is exactly what was needed in this industry. Twenty years later - - My little girl dreams and grown woman prayers are now my reality!
Since returning to modeling, I have walked for dozens of fashion designers and been photographed by some of the greats! I am a traveling model, actress and voiceover talent for NOW Talent Management (St. Louis, MO). I am the first official model for Brazen Boutique (online), have been seen on HBO Series (Betty - Season 2), Sonic and Mobile (On The Run) billboards.
I'm living proof of what happens when you leap...YOU SOAR!

Working with Chi is top notch! I learned so much in a short amount of time and cant wait to get in with her again. She is THE hype woman! Being a model for about 4 years now, she allowed me to be who I was while learning how to perfect my craft. I recommend her for all of your photoshoot and runway coaching needs. Her 'bedside' coaching will make you feel comfortable from jump. Y'all trippin if you don't listen, but that means more time for me so...

So much can be said about Chi! She is beyond professional, creative, easy to work with and beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside! I'm blessed to have met her when I did and can't wait for what's yet to come!
~Stephany S. (St. Louis, MO)
I've had the pleasure of capturing photos and videos of Chi during multiple fashion shows; she's amazing to watch! Chi definitely stands out. She's poised, classy and sexy. Whatever she is wearing, she makes it come alive as if it were made just for her. She is beautiful in every way and heavenly to work with. Chi is the best and a must if you want the real deal for your fashion show or brand photoshoots!
~Craig C. (St. Louis, MO)
Chi is a professional that taps into the hearts of her clients to bring out the best in them for their event. My daughter needed help walking for her casual wear and fun fashion modeling. Chi not only helped her improve in the mechanics of walking and posing, but she also identified the need for a confident boost. Though the sessions were hard work, my teen always came out with a positive attitude about the effort and her self-image. She showed us how to best work the outfits and fun poses to make my daughter stand out. I look forward to future contracting with Chi to help with posing and continued walking practice. My daughter finished top 5 in her national pageant, won Best Stage Presence and was 3rd runner up for Top Model!
~Tracy K. mom of Cyan (St. Louis, MO)
OMG! Chi is everything you need on set. I had a two-day photoshoot that involved my business (The Melanted Bar) with 3 models and my own personal branding photos. Chi executed everything I asked for plus some. Just having Chi's radiant spirit on set changes the entire dynamic. I was very nervous until she walked through the door ready to work and in action. If a garment is out of place, your hair is out of place or even if you're looking uncomfortable, Chi will make sure she handles it until you get what she calls "The Money Shot". She will be hired again for more work soon! Thanks so much, Chi! You are priceless!
~Paula D. (Chicago, IL)
When I say Chi was exactly who I needed for my photoshoot…she was literally everything thing I needed to feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera! She was lively, fun, uplifting and is EXCELLENT at what she does! She worked great with the rest of the team and her energy made me feel like I was a million dollar model on a Paris runway! Thank you for working with me and my family Chi! You won’t regret utilizing her services! From making sure your hair is laying how it needs to, how your positioning should be to how your smile should look to just making sure your photos come out looking amazing…she is IT!
~Chaviva B. (Chicago, IL)
"Chi was absolutely amazing to have at my branding shoot. She fixed my clothes, hair and made effective suggestions during the shoot that made the experience even more enjoyable. She is an absolutely must have going forward. She brought a cheerful energy that allowed me to be more relaxed and allow my personality to shine through my photos. Thanks so much can’t wait until the next one!"
~Amanda S. (St. Louis, MO)
I have had the chance to work with Chi multiple times over the years and I can't tell you how valuable she is to have on set. Chi makes sure everything is perfect before every shot which saves so much time. Her way with people is pure magic and everybody instantly loves her. She takes control while on set with grace. Whether it is instructing the models where to put their hands or how to stand, she makes everyone look like a professional model. I exclusively recommend Chi as a Creative Director for any photoshoot.
~Craig C. (St. Louis, MO)
"My birthday family shoot was the best one by far thanks to the creative directing of Coach Chi. You don't really know the difference she makes until you experience her work for yourself. She was there from start to finish giving me tips and great ideas. I wanted to have a special experience for my birthday and I am so grateful for her expertise. If you have never thought about using a coach and want to upgrade your photoshoot experience, check her out. She is the best!"
~LaTonya B. (St. Louis, MO)
"Today I had the pleasure of working along side of Chi. I’m a professional photographer with 20 years experience and never before has a shoot flowed with such ease. Having her assist the model today made my job a breeze and allowed me to focus more on lighting and other aspects of composition. I look forward to working with her again and recommending her to others."
~Lance T. (St. Louis, MO)
"I recently took professional pics before the holiday and I was so nervous. It was also my first maternity shoot so I definitely didn't know what to expect. I had a few ideas in mind, but pregnancy brain kept my thoughts limited; I had no reason to worry though. Chi's assistance and creative ideas really put me at ease. She helped with wardrobe changes and made sure I stayed put together during my session. Her sweet, professional personality made her very easy to work with. Best of all, the photos that received the most compliments were the ones where she expressed her ideas!"
~Margie M. (St. Louis, MO)
"Awesome! Chi is the epitome of a professional. I had the opportunity to acquire her services; it was worth every dollar spent. Her ability to provide creative direction and model/pose coaching resulted in a successful photoshoot. Chi provided tips on how to work the camera and feel comfortable with every pose. I absolutely loved her energy. If you want to look and feel your best during your shoot, you need look no further. Chi The Model is your GO-TO!"
~Candace M. (St. Louis, MO)
"Chi was such a pleasure to work with! As soon as I found out she was offering a service to assist as an expert in making you look your best in photos, I booked her immediately. She was able to bring out the natural beauty in my photos by critiquing my angles, poses, movements and adjusting my clothing and hair. She is a must have at any photoshoot; you absolutely need someone to help you look your best and slay your photoshoot. Chi not only over delivered on her service, but her energy is second to none! It was an ultimate experience."
~Brittney H. (St. Louis, MO)
"My experience with Chi was phenomenal. Her creative direction and coaching is everything you need it to be and more. I truly felt like a high fashion model. She is kind and has a very gentle spirit. Let's not forget to mention she is absolutely beautiful inside and out. I cannot wait to book her for my next shoot!"
~Tam K. (St. Louis, MO)
"I hate taking pictures. I am stiff, my smiles look nervous, I don't know how to look natural and it generally takes 173,456 pics to get one decent one. When I saw Chi 'werk' other models, I knew she was the help I needed. Chi made me feel confident, supported and relaxed. Oh, and the pics were beautiful! She is worth her weight in gold. I will definitely be utilizing her services again."
~Satin B. (St. Louis, MO)
"From the moment my family and I stepped into the photography studio, Chi was pleasant and had that "I'm your BFF" vibe. Once my family and I stepped into the shoot, Chi's energy was amazing and made us feel less intimidated in front of the camera. Chi is great and gets bonus points for getting my less than eager children pumped up to take pictures! It's like we've known her for a while. I would definitely recommend her services."
~Quiara B. (St. Louis, MO)
"I absolutely loved working with Coach Chi. As an introvert, I was extremely nervous about the photoshoot and stressed over how to pose. Not only did she come through with the poses, she also adjusted my hair, makeup and dress! I was able to relax and have fun! I don't want to have another photoshoot without her by my side! She's the best!"
~Maurya C. (St. Louis, MO)
"I had the opportunity to work with Chi during my birthday photoshoot. I have done modeling before, but felt I needed that extra push and guidance by Chi because she is so dope and professional. She was not only my posing coach, but she was my hype lady! She helped me slay every pose! I'm so grateful to have met and worked with such a motivating and sweet spirited individual. BOOK HER FOR THAT WERK!"
~Amanda W. (St. Louis, MO)
"Chi is the help you need, that you don't even know you need! From posing, hair and wardrobe assistance to giving a pep talk to ease nervousness, she makes photoshoots seamless and takes the heavy load off of the photographer so they can focus on getting the shot! I had so many usable 'money shot' photos because of her posing assistance! Also, she's not afraid to get in there and lotion legs and comb flyaways to ensure you present your best self. I recommend her to EVERYONE! I've booked her 3 times in one month! Don't book a shoot without Chi!'
~Lauren S. (St. Louis, MO)
"Chi recently assisted and posed 15 women for the STL Collective photoshoot. The ladies and I absolutely loved having her there. She brought such love and light to set; her energy was radiant! She came equipped with lotion, mirror, safety pins and good vibes. It's the little things like hairs out of place or exposed bra straps that make or break how you remember your special day. Chi makes sure everything is in place. Book her for your next photoshoot!"
