Poolaroids with Freedom Models

by Kylie Obermeier

On a perfect sunny LA summer day, the last place you want to be is inside a stuffy office. Thankfully for us, sometimes working at Flaunt means taking our work poolside. Three truly stunning faces from Freedom Models joined us on the deck for our ongoing model casting sessions beside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's David Hockney squiggle-decorated pool. 

Find Maria, Reese and Sammie working the camera on our Instagram (@flauntmagazine) and scroll to the bottom for their own social presences. With looks to kill and fun answers to the questions we posed to them, these models are certainly worth a follow. See you by the pool.
