Eden Gonet, 19-year-old model and student. She never pictured herself getting into modeling growing up. She was always camera shy but would always be encouraged by friends growing up to pursue it when she got to the right age.
After graduating from high school, she networked with some local photographers, shooting and building her portfolio. After some time of doing that she knew that she needed to get involved with an agency in order to grow in the business.
All while balancing a full-time school schedule and two part-time jobs, she began submitting her portfolio to a few agencies and was picked up by a Rhode Island-based agency, Divine Souls Management. Since she has worked with numerous photographers across New England, been featured in brand advertising and has even had her photos shared in Vogue Italia. She is also currently ranked 4th in a national competition to be Maxim’s cover girl.
