JDW’s Next Top Model Contestant

Alicia Skelding


“Well, I am supposed to write a paragraph about myself explaining who I am and why I decided to enter this contest. Where do I start? A few weeks ago I made the decision to try a boudoir photo shoot. I have had an interest in photography as I find it, dance and music to be the most expressive art forms in that a lot can be conveyed in a single lyric, move or photograph.


My name is Alicia. I am thirty years old, and I am a veterinarian. My spare time and particularly time to myself is incredibly limited. The boudoir shoot was something I had an interest in doing for a very long time, and it felt really great to do it just for myself. It was at that time that John mentioned to me this contest. I have a passion (and weakness) for fashion, as you can see by the dresses. This contest sounded like a great opportunity to have some fun with photography. It has never really been about winning, but more so about the experience and the final product. I have worked hard all my life to achieve the professional career that I have always wanted. In all this hard work not a lot of time has been taken for myself. As a veterinarian our obligation to our clients and family members can be so rewarding and so trying all at the same time. It is easy to forget that we need to take time to focus on ourselves. These photo shoots have given me the chance to really be myself and focus on my own interests outside of my career.” – Alicia Skelding

Kim Freeman (my wife)

Last night I had the incredible pleasure of photographing my amazing wife, Kim. It has been far too long since Kim and I went on a photo shoot together, and I wanted to give her the same experience I give my clients (well, except for taking her out for a nice dinner first). I was actually a bit nervous on this shoot, something that I never am when it comes to photography. I helped Kim, like I do all my clients, in prepping for her session and also helped her in choosing what images best represented her. Below are the four she chose….. just for the record, Kim cannot officially enter this contest, but I wanted to give her the full experience.

“As a full-time teacher, mother and partner, I don’t always have a lot of time to spend on myself. My two hours of shooting with John, and the time I took out of my day to prepare, was a great reminder of how to put myself first.  As busy women we don’t always remember that. During the shoot John coached me with the poses, made me feel relaxed in front of the camera, and I truly enjoyed every minute. Even if doing a photo shoot like this seems outside your comfort zone, I would say push through and do it. I don’t like being the spotlight, and definitely don’t consider myself a model, and I loved it!”  _ Kim Freeman

Crys Way-White

“I’m Crys, I’m 32 years old. I have an amazing husband and two step sons I’ve been a hairstylist for 15 years and I am a business owner. At one time, I was the one hiding behind the camera. Now: I love being in front of it. I used to have body issues and low self esteem. It wasn’t until my late 20s that I learned to love me. I learned to love my flaws and embrace them. As I learned to love myself first, I could see others loved me for who I was and not who I wished I was. John, knows how to capture my beauty on the outside to match the beauty on the inside.”

– Crys Way-White

Ashley Wildfong


“My name is Ashley and I am a 21 year old mom of a beautiful 3 year old boy. I am currently in school for nursing as well as working full time. My life is extremely busy and finding balance can always be hard. But when I do get free time I love to spend it working out or on fashion which are two of my passions. I love clothes and being girly, but I also love to run as well as lift weights. I am not afraid to get dirty, but I clean up nice :)”
