We got a chance to chit-chat with fabulous British model Jamie Gunns in between takes at our photo studio and we’ve gotta say…even her off-camera movements were graceful. Talk about a 24/7 model! “Pretend like you’re at the beach,” the photographer said during the shoot and Jamie instantly lit up the studio with her infectious smile and giggly personality in a way that immediately transported us there. We love her and we hope you do too!
