Spotted! Caitlin Soetendal!


Caitlin is 14years old, born and living in the Netherlands and she was only 12 when the owners of Fresh Model Management Suzanne and Mauro scouted her. She needed to have some patience for the day that she turned 13 and could sign with Fresh MM, which she did, right after her 13th birthday! We fell in love with her right away and if you take a look at her photos, the same will happen to you! What a gorgeous face and personality she has! Her shy smile makes you think she is still so young but as soon as she steps in front of the camera her powerful eyes change her into a woman. We are honoured to be the first to publish the photos of her latest photoshoot with the great Thomas Tukker.  For sure there is way more coming up of this precious lady!

Describe yourself with a few words:
Social, ambitious, driven and friendly.

What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are field hockey and golf. I’ve been playing field hockey for 7 years now in a selection team. I also love to spend time with my family and friends.

When and how did you start your modelling career? Were you scouted?
I was scouted when I was 12 years old by Suzanne and Mauro (owners Fresh MM) in a restaurant in Hoofddorp. This is how I started modelling when I turned 13.

Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
It did not change my life completely. But yea, a little. Sometimes you have to cancel appointments because of a photoshoot. But I don’t mind at all!


Do you walk fashion shows?
Not yet. At the moment I am 3 cm shorter for walking shows. But as soon as I have the right height I will. And I can’t wait!

Have you dreamed of becoming a model?
I didn’t think I would be able to. But now, I love photoshoots and standing in front of the camera!

One thing that you love most about modelling?
I meet so many nice, fun and creative people!

What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
For me, fashion is a way of showing who you are. I don’t have a specific style. I love clothes in which I feel comfortable. And I don’t mind what other people think.

What is your musthave for the season?
Sendra boots.


Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
Daphne Groeneveld. I have the same style as she has.

A fact about you that we don’t know?
I LOVE chocolate! But I try to not eat it too much.

What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
No doubt: my family and friends. They are always there for me, whenever I need them. I’m lucky to say that I’m a very happy girl.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get inspiration from creative people. People who are in control of their own lives and surroundings, by doing the things they love.

The things that are worth fighting for are?
Freedom, career and to live my life the way that I like best. And of course my family.

How do you see the future, what does it hold for you?
Hopefully I will travel the world, modelling. That would be a dream coming true. But first I want to finish my school.

If you could tell something to the whole world, what it would be?
Do the things in life that you love and don’t let people influence you negatively.
Believe in yourself and your own strength. You are responsible for all the good things happening in your life. Whatever life may bring you be sure that what you do makes you happy. Life is like a glass. Make sure it keeps its shine and that it doesn’t break.
