Sarah

Sarah has been involved in the model & talent industry for over twenty-five years. She got her start as a parent attending model searches with her four children. Each of her children worked and/or still work as models, actors, and singers. Through her experience as a parent paired with her love of photography, Sarah discovered a passion for the industry and hasn't looked back since.

Early in her career, Sarah worked for a model search company similar to the one she had first attended with her children. She traveled extensively throughout the United States with this company and with some of the best fashion photographers in the industry. She not only got to hone her photography skills but developed close relationships with top agencies. After mastering her craft, she returned to Chicago and opened her own photography studio. Sarah began to work closely with the new face divisions of several agencies around the United States. These agencies, such as Babes N Beaus, FORD, and Stewart Talent, would send their newly signed talent to have their photos taken for composition cards, promotional pieces, etc. In July of 2011, Sarah was chosen to be a photographer for a Bravo reality series, "Shahs of Sunset", a Ryan Seacrest Production.

As her career continued, Sarah began to develop close relationships with the talent and their families. She realized her extensive experience of being on both sides of the spectrum, gave her the tools to develop, advise, and place talent with top agencies when needed. She has been a photographer for nearly twenty years and truly is her passion.

Raised in a household with strong creative roots, Nicole knew from a very young age that she loved the industry. Her life-long passion for the arts, teaching, and helping people has lead her to a career that seamlessly blends together all of her interests.

Starting at the age of eight, Nicole joined a dance studio and continued to perform and advance her technique through high school. Concurrently, she uncovered a new passion, creative outlet, and a natural talent in makeup artistry. After graduating high school, Nicole went on to study psychology in college. During her third year of school, fate intervened and Nicole was recruited to work for M.A.C. Cosmetics. After working with the brand as a certified artist for nearly 6 years, destiny stepped in yet again, and Nicole began work as the hair/makeup/wardrobe stylist at Sarah's studio. Nicole traveled with Sarah to Los Angeles in July 2011 to work on the first season of the Bravo series, "Shahs of Sunset" as a hair and makeup artist. Throughout her time working with Sarah, Nicole learned the ins and outs of the industry, sat on panel assisting agencies during scouting events, and developed relationships with many industry professionals.

Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, Josh is a young man whose years of professional experience nearly outnumber his years of life. Working in many facets of the industry has resulted in his extensive knowledge and understanding of what it takes to succeed and navigate through a talent's career.

He enrolled in acting courses with The Piven Theater in Chicago, and Donna Marrazzo and The Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City.
