Model Spotlight - Sarah Barton

Today's Wings of Angels Model Spotlight shines itself on Sarah Barton! Sarah was born on July 12th and grew up in North Dakota by has lived in Wyoming since she was 16. She is a gorgeous mom to a wonderful 13-year-old daughter and is a licensed esthetician! In case you didn't know what that is she's a skin care specialist who is definitely great and talented at what she does because she looks amazing! So now it's time to learn more about Sarah Barton who was wonderful enough to take the time to answer some of your questions!

Terry Myers wanted to know 1. What has been you greatest modeling accomplishment and (2) what is your greatest roadblock? 

My greatest modeling accomplishment is #1 the Wings of Angels Project. I have been wanting to be a part of the Pin Up photos for quite some time and really wanted someone who I worked well with and who provided the types of photos I would be proud of. I loved going to places like Italy to do some magazine shoots which were definitely a whole lot different than you would expect. They wanted you screaming or yelling in your photos, so for me that was definitely a whole lot different that what you see here.

My greatest roadblock has been myself. It has been a challenging time for me in learning to face my own fears. There have been so many opportunities presented to me that I couldn't face because of my own fears getting in the way. That is why I got into modeling was to learn to grow as a person and to face those fears. I have always struggled with self esteem but have been on a journey of seeking out who I really am and in learning how to push myself to do the things I've wanted. I faced down my fear of flying in order to visit the locations I've wanted to do photo shoots in.

Quack 42 asked Sarah "(1) How do you find about shooting assignments, and then (2) how do you decide those which are attractive to you?

I got most of my assignments through Model Mayhem. I also Google the locations I want to visit as well as photographers who are taking the types of photos I admire. I actually do quite a bit of extensive research and background into the photographer I'm considering. I look for ones whose work is clean and images I would be proud to show my family and friends. As a model you are always worried of those photographers who take advantage of models and I didn't want to fall into one of those situations. I;m pretty religious and didn't want to put myself in a compromising situation and again wanted photos that my family would be proud of. I've always wanted photos that looked like paintings.

What's it like to work with Michael Malak?

Michael is a lot of fun!!! He has such an amazing sense of humor. He is funny and had me laughing all of time. That made working with him so much fun! We actually became good friends both before and after my photo shoot and will continue to do so. He so amazing to work with!

Who is your role model, and why?

Jesus Christ! It's simple actually because during my own search of discovering who I am, I have realized that He is the only source of peace and comfort. I have found that when I put my focus on Jesus and give him 100%, it definitely makes me stronger. It shows me what I am capable of and its more than I could ever have imagined!

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Oh wow, that's a tough question. I had never thought of something like that before. I guess in order to have someone play me, they'd really have to know who I am first. I'll have to think about that one a bit. Can I get back to you on that one?

If you could visit any period in time, what would it be and why?

That would be easy for me, it would be when Jesus was alive. I would have loved to have met Him, to experience was life was like to just be around Him. To watch Him, listening to Him talk and just get to know Him by physically being here. It would have been incredible to have been part of that story.

What is your favorite photo that Michael has taken?

Oh that one was easy it's the one sitting on the bomb, "Bombs Away" I think that one was funny but I love it. I also love my Sinister Shadows photo, I'm not sure what it's called but I'm holding a gun. Mike knows what it's called. I love that one!

What has been the biggest benefit of being part of the Wings of Angels project, personally and professionally?  

 Professionally I have slowed down a bit. I am not doing that much in the way of modeling at least right now. I have learned so much about me during my life and what I've gone through right now and can look back and see so much growth for me personally. I have learned to love myself and it's not so much about being pretty enough but it's about learning to find something much deeper than your 5 minutes of fame in this life. So I believe you need something more to get you through life and I believe I've found that now. I am still growing and learning! I am thankful I got to meet Mike. It's been a couple of years of knowing him and we are still great friends!

I want to personally thank Sarah Barton for taking the time to answer your questions in today's Model Spotlight. As you can see, she is truly a beautiful person both inside and out.We leave you now with the Behind the Scenes Photo Shoot of Sarah's!
