Sammie Lyn: Story & Interview

Photographer: Zach Ishmael, Company: Zishmael Photography, Website:

I started modeling two years ago. I just had a baby so I was looking into YouTube for a new look and stumbled onto TheCherryDollFace videos. It showed hair makeup and clothing tutorials. I found out that she was also a tattooed pinup model. So I started getting the pinup style down and took a risk and got into modeling. I loved it and been doing it ever since 🙂 so I like to tell everyone that if you like something go for it and give it your all!!
