Ciara McAteer - W&HM Feature Model From Florida With Love

W&HM Feature Model Ciara McAteer


Far from the sunny Florida, came a fabulous model / brand ambassador who has mesmerizing eyes and a killer figure with mega talents.  We had such a great fortune to have worked with the amazing model, Ciara McAteer.  It's like a dream come true...

Ciara carried her Floridian glamour to our edgy high end shoots.  The results are simply stunning!  The great model articulated her graces and energy through our depiction of light and frames.  Her sensuality would ease into the shoot without much effort and created a mood that is tranquil yet impressive...

On her busy schedule touring the country for a big name car company, you might run into her in one of the auto shows that she is in.  Definitely step up and say Hi to this gorgeous and gifted W&HM feature model!


W&HM: Dog, or cat, or ...?
Ciara: I'm a huge animal lover in general but growing up, my family always had two dogs and I currently have a 50 lb. Pitbull/ Border Collie from a shelter. She is the absolute best companion and I couldn't imagine my life without her.

W&HM: Carnivore or vegetarian?
Ciara: Omnivore! I love food in general and I don't discriminate :) The only food I'm not crazy about is fruit, and I have no idea why.

W&HM: Favorite dish?
Ciara: Hmmmm….that's a really tough question. I'm a big fan of baked ziti, homemade chicken pot pie or prime rib.

W&HM: Three words describing your personality
Ciara: Passionate, Optimistic and Motivated

W&HM: One sentence to sum up your modeling experience
Ciara: Years of work and I'm supposed to put it into one sentence?! Hmmmmm. The first word that comes to my mind is cornucopia- an abundant supply of good things of a specific kind. My career thus far has been a cornucopia of wonderful experiences. I've worked all different types of events and met so many types of people, and at the end of the day, I wouldn't trade my experiences for anything. That was more than one sentence….oops

W&HM: Any advice for new models?
Ciara: Based on my experience I would say to first and foremost always be yourself! It might sound cliche, but it's the absolute truth. If you maintain your individuality in this industry, eventually it will be noticed and appreciated. Secondly, I would say that you can't pay for success. Don't ever feel like you have to spend money in order to establish yourself. Third, be prepared to hustle like you have never hustled before….and be prepared for rejection. Everything in this world that's worth having takes blood, sweat and tears to achieve. Lastly, I would say to develop a focus for yourself. Create goals and figure out which aspect of modeling you want to pursue. Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses is valuable and that focus will help keep you motivated even when things get rough.

W&HM: Secret to any success?
Ciara: I don't really think I have any secrets to success. Everything I have accomplished is by the grace of God, and working insanely hard every moment, of every day. Knowing that there's always someone out there better, faster, and stronger than I am is all the motivation I need for me to be the best possible version of myself I can be.

 W&HM: One recommendation about people relationship
Ciara: Well I'm definitely the wrong person to ask about this haha but I think people should spend more time being single and learning about themselves, and less time looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend. If you're always dating someone or hopping from relationship to relationship, I'm not sure you ever fully understand who you are as an individual. I think sometimes people stay with what is "comfortable" or "familiar", even though it might not be the most fulfilling relationship, because it's easier to leave things the way they are or because they're afraid to be alone. Everyone is different, so the same thing doesn't work for everyone. But for me, at the end of the day, I don't want just a boyfriend; I want a best friend.

W&HM: Most favorite quote you can share with us
Ciara: "She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future" Proverbs 31:25

W&HM: Favorite color?
Ciara: Either bright green, like chartreuse…..or aqua…..I think….but ask me next week and my answer will probably be different.

W&HM: Favorite coin?
Ciara: Interesting question. I guess I've never really thought about it since I typically prefer there to be paper bills in my wallet. Maybe a half dollar? They remind me of the tokens you get at arcades.

W&HM: Favorite city?
Ciara: You're good at asking tough questions! Well there are plenty of cities I want to visit that I haven't been to yet, but out of the cities I have been fortunate enough to visit, I would have to say Chicago. But, let me be a little more specific…..Chicago in the summer haha. The weather in the summer is beyond perfect and the overall energy of the city is intoxicating. Not to mention the professional sports, museums and amazing architecture.

W&HM: Favorite travel destination?
Ciara: Even though I haven't been there yet, I'm going to say Europe; I can't really narrow it down to a specific location within Europe haha. I have a very long list of places I want to visit someday, and a great number of them are in Europe. Back when I was in school, one of my favorite subjects was history. I'm terrible at remembering specific dates of events, but I loved learning about it, and my degree focused heavily on art and architectural history. Europe has SO much history everywhere, and I want to see it all in person someday.

W&HM: Morning lark or night owl?
Ciara: My favorite part of the day is the morning. The bright sunlight, knowing I have an entire day ahead of me, and having an excuse to make a cup of coffee. I can't say I'm the best at getting up really early, but I try to. On rare occasions, I can be a night owl but that's only if I've had coffee or a 5 hour energy…I get tired too early!

W&HM: Professionally cooked or home made?
Ciara: Home made is always best. I love to cook, and I also love to eat. Trying new recipes is a great stress reliever and I can make everything exactly how I want it! But I do love trying new and unique dishes, so I appreciate a professionally made meal from time to time.

W&HM: Movie or video or youtube?
Ciara: I love movies. I have a deep appreciation for films that can transport me to another place or time and make me feel a certain way. Am I the only person who has trouble when someone asks "What's your favorite movie?" I mean, out of all the movies I've seen in my entire life, you want me to pick just ONE that's my favorite?! I enjoy everything from action to suspense, and you can't go wrong with a comedy or a quirky indie film :)

W&HM: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn?
Ciara: Well, I have all of them with the exception of Twitter because my life DEFINITELY isn't exciting enough to have one. But I would have to say my favorite is Instagram. I'm a very visual person and I love seeing photos of what everyone is up to as opposed to just reading a status about it. Plus it's a more creative form of expression!

W&HM: Driver seat or passenger seat?
Ciara: …..Passenger seat isn't even an option. I love cars, I love racing, and I love being in control…Driver seat is a must.

W&HM: Beach or mountain?
Ciara: Most of the time I'd choose the beach. I love the sound of the ocean, tanning my buns, sipping on whiskey and inevitably falling asleep on my beach towel; plus it's a very peaceful and relaxing place to be. But I also really love hiking and exploring.

W&HM: High heels or bare foot?
Ciara: There's a time and place for both. I'm a very casual person when I'm not working so I would say bare foot 99% of the time, and high heels when I have an occasion that calls for them or when I just want to feel sexy.

W&HM: Pajama suit or birthday suit?
Ciara: I know what you're thinking…. you're thinking that I seem like a onesie type of gal right? I hate to disappoint you all but at the end of a long day, there's nothing I love more than coming home and putting on a loose t-shirt with a pair of boy shorts.

W&HM: Wasabi, Tabasco, or Sriracha?
Ciara: …..I didn't see Ranch on that list, and I'm assuming that was a mistake.

W&HM: Meditation or punching a bag?
Ciara: Punching bag! For some reason, yoga and meditation do not relax me. I think I'm too impatient and I get more stressed that everything is slow moving. Lifting and punching bags are more up my alley- all about the adrenaline!

W&HM: Talk or Text?
Ciara: Although I text all day, everyday, I prefer talking to someone in person or on FaceTime. Texting is fine for casual conversation or group messaging with friends, but not as ideal when you first meet someone. It's easy for someone to be charming and witty via text message, but if you can be that engaging in person, that's what really counts.
