❤ Branca has tried her hand at modeling and has some definite opinions about it. “They make you think that modeling is all about just going somewhere and being pretty,” she explains. “They make you think you’re going to try on a bunch of different outfits and everybody’s going to treat you like a princess. And I guess on some level that’s true, up to a point. You do get to go to different places, different exotic locales. ❤ You try on all these sexy clothes. You look your best, and when it’s all over, you’re going to love the kinds of photos that they’ve taken of you. But I have to tell you when you’re doing it when you’re actually working, it’s just that. It’s work and lots of it. It’s a hard way to make a living, or at least, harder than you might think. It’s not just a picnic.” ❤ Branca goes on, “I had to get used to the fact that most shoots are done offseason. You film the stuff for the fall in the spring, and you film the stuff for the spring in the fall. So what happens is that you find yourself sweating like crazy when you’re supposed to be shooting for colder weather products, wearing outfits that are way too warm for the temperature outside. ❤ And then when you’re doing the bikini shoots and other warm-weather clothes, that’s when you’re trying not to show the fact that you’re freezing because the picture only has to look like a nice warm beach. In reality, the water’s freezing and so is the outdoor air. It only looks nice, and you have to maintain your smile through all of it.” ❤ “The people were very nice, though,” Branca adds. “I really can’t say anything bad about them.” ❤
