Brasilian Models

As most of you probably know, this is a picture of Gisele Bündchen. She is considered by most the world's top model. She is one of the highest paid models in the world. You may or may not have already known that. She also currently dates Tom Brady who is the quarterback for the New England Patriots (I hate that team). What you probably didn't know is that Gisele is from our state. Our state is Rio Grande do Sul. She is from the interior but when she comes back to the state she typically spends her vacation/down time here in Porto Alegre.I know, I know big deal right? What in the world does this have to do with us and what is going on with our family. Well, because of the great success Gisele has had in the world of modeling there has been an enormous influx of modeling agencies coming to Porto Alegre to find the next Gisele. Both Carys, a few years ago, and Ansley, just last weekend, were approached in different malls by people who claimed to work for modeling agencies and wanted them to come in for a photo shoot. They gave us their cards and told us to give them a call. Kind of creepy if you ask me but I guess that's how the modeling thing works. Don't know if you've ever paid attention to models but it always looks like they are making strange faces when their pictures are taken. You know the kind - really super cool looks or at least what they think are super cool looks. I've never understood it but that's what they do.

Anyway, after much searching, a local modeling company has recently announced a new ad campaign featuring something pretty incredible. Sisters that are models. Here are some photos from the recent photo shoots. What even makes this find more fascinating is that this modeling agency later introduced a campaign that features the two sisters and, incredibly, their mom. It's a first in the modeling industry. Here's a sneak preview of what's to come. Oh never mind.

This is among the many reasons why I love the Blume family!
