I want to thank Ann for believing in me. It was a few years ago when Ann and I were drawing my Dream Board. One was to have a great agency, which I had accomplished in a matter of weeks.
In 2012 I started extra work for the show "Nashville" to build my resume. Soon after they wanted me become a stand in. Early this year I had the opportunity to audition for a "Cotton " Commercial. I didn't receive a call but the next week they offered me an extra role . It was amazing experience for me. Last week I recieved a letter from SAG. I thought it was a letter stating I worked for a SAG production, I was wrong! I was upgraded to a Principal ! I never thought this would ever happen. I've heard about the upgrade and the chances of an upgrade was a slim chance to none. I feel very blessed and I thank Ann for everything !
Abby and I have been so blessed to have met Ms Annie and Mr Randy Dorman. They have been a constant source of support and love for us. Abby has learned so much about acting and being a star from Ms Annie and has really benefited from her lessons and from Ms Annie coming to all of her shows. Abby has really enjoyed working on her Dream Board and has already met some of her goals! Last year we were fortunate enough to do a beautiful photo shoot with Mr Randy that turned out some exquisite head shots and body shots for her auditions. Since moving to Nashville almost 2 years ago I cannot imagine Abby would be as far as she is without the help of both of them.
We cannot begin to thank you both enough!

Before I met Ann and Randy I had not had much experience with modeling or being photographed. Just by speaking with Anne over the phone I already knew that this was a woman I would enjoy working with. That was an understatement to say the least. When I went to Scenic Ridge for my very first photoshoot I immediately felt a sense of welcoming and comfort. It was the perfect place to get "dolled up" and go "glam" with the big, bright lights inside. The greatest thing about Scenic Ridge is that not only does it offer this indoor setting, but a beautiful outdoor setting as well. It was a very calm, peaceful way to be photographed while enjoying the beautiful scenery. Randy's photography skills are amazing. He makes you feel so comfortable in front of camera and knows just what angles, background, and lighting is needed for a "WOW" picture. That, combined with Ann's make-up skills, modeling tips, and insight make for a great day of photo-shooting! I walked in Scenic Ridge feeling like an "ordinary girl" and left feeling like not only had I taken some great photos, but feeling like a real model. I cannot thank Ann & Randy enough for making me feel like family and providing me with such a wonderful experience!
Love you guys!
God bless always
Ann Dorman is invaluable! I started working with her in February of 2014. Since then I’ve shot head shots with her husband Randy, been introduced to so many people in Nashville and Los Angeles, landed two agents, landed speaking roles on television, shot a speaking scene with a celebrity actor, become SAG-AFTRA eligible, and moved to Los Angeles for pilot season to attempt to establish a west coast presence! Before I walked into Scenic Ridge Studios, all I knew how to do was act for small parts in school plays. Now I know how to act during a professional audition and on set, and I know how to establish a good working relationship with my talent agents! If you are looking to break into the business NOW, Scenic Ridge is the place to get started!
