Me: What does the mirror represent to you?
Hollie: Mirrors to me, are a visual representation of the two different personas that I have in my life. Professional and home/fun.
By profession, I am an EMT/Medic. I am gusty, somewhat untouchable, and very little phases me. It is a profession that exposes me to many different situations that require the utmost in professionalism, and for me to tough my way through situations that are gross, gnarly, and sometimes hectic. It is my more masculine side.
Away from my job, I am exactly the opposite, participating in pin-up contests, modeling, and other hobbies that are extremely feminine in nature. It allows me to show my softer side, and also to fuel my make-up addiction.
When I look in the mirror, it reminds me of the contrast between the two, and just how different they are.
Addendum by PBrooks Photography:
Don’t mistake her “feminine” side as soft. She is still a ball of energy and spunk, and will not hesitate to let you know if you are in the wrong. It was a ton of fun to do this shoot with a model that I had never met before. Here is to making new friends.
