What’s the first thing you would say to someone when they ask you to describe your style of shooting?
My shooting is very just relaxing, i pride myself in making my “models” feel comfortable and just have a great time with them, even when they say “I feel awkward” I like to give a lot of direction to boost their confidence, also I don’t let any sneak peeks happen during the shoot haha.
What inspires your shoots?
My shoots are really inspired by my imagination and life. ill be sitting watching it snow, observing its beauty then I think, snow, ice, blue, pale, blonde, diamonds, silk, brick then somehow in my head I draw a image and boom theres my new concept and theme.
Tell us one piece of equipment you can’t live without on set?
Well most of the time i just shoot natural light so really I could not live without my lenses they are what makes the images crisp and clear
Where are you from?
I am originally from the city of Pasadena in California
What photographers in the industry inspire you the most today?
I am inspired a lot by Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz, their work is just amazing! They are true icons in the fashion industry and there creativity is amazing.
Growing up did you have mentors?
Yea my parents allowed me to be creative my whole life so that was great, and my art teachers of course always pushed me to my potentials.
Describe your favorite model..
My favorite model. I can’t say I have just one but Adriana lima is my favorite model, her strong features are absolutely beautiful from her cheek bones, to her long legs, beautiful girl her shoot for vogue brazil is my favorite.
What makes you different from other artist today?
I think a lot of times artists get lost in fame, and their new ambitions are no longer for the love and passion of photography or art but a ambition of money and glory, and I think that separates me as a person and a artist that no matter my accomplishments, I always remember my background and love of art.
What do you want your future fans to know about you?
I love what I do, and just remember to always follow your dream, maybe it wont happen right away or maybe it will but just never stop till you reach the top of the mountain.

On September 11, 1989 a miracle and wonder of the world occurred. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, this miraculous event was the birth of triplets, Carlton, Catherine and Noel Page. This set of triplets was the first set of triplets to be born at this particular Kaiser. Being that this was a rare occasion of the time, especially that this was a set of two identical girls and one fraternal boy, the event gained so much attention from being in the newspaper that they were escorted home in a limo and later received a television role on General Hospital..
However, the show decided to only use the identical twin girls. This event marked history in television and in the soap opera world being that The Page Twins were to be the first bi racial babies of the first Bi-racial couple on a soap opera. This separation set course for a majority of many occurrences in the triplet’s lives Carlton and the girls all went to separate schools and had their own friends. The girls are inseparable which is why people are more used to seeing the two together, thus referring to them more often as twins. These among other reasons are why Catherine and Noel are recognized and trademarked as The Page Twins.
Because of financial hardships from the stress of having a family of seven the twin’s parents placed a central focus on education, thus enrolling them in magnet programs which ultimately resulted in the twins’ completion of Bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy, Politics and Law from the University of Southern California in May 2011. Still keeping a keen interest in the Entertainment Industry the twins aspire to one day become Entertainment Attorneys. Currently they are taking a couple years off before going to law school, a decision that has become especially instrumental in enriching another important value to them, social establishment.
Among being graduates they are commercial models, actresses, entrepreneurs, event planners and power networkers who have graced the presence of some of Hollywood’s brightest stars. Their social status has gained so much unprecedented momentum that they have even started to host some of Los Angeles most elite nightclubs, and venues and red carpet events. They have also modeled for many designers in LA.
Having recently received new representation, they are excited to see what new entertainment opportunities are on the horizon for them. With the completion of their undergraduate education, a strong social network, and their blossoming popularity and 3 reality tv shows in production, the twins are grateful they have accomplished so much in such a short time, but for them this is only the beginning.
Interview by Robert Valentino
Congratulations on being our featured cover models this month! Who got the news first?
We both got the news at the same time because we have the special twin powers of telepathy. Yay!! We are so honored to be the cover April models for Alwayz Therro.
We have to say, you guys look unbelievably amazing?
Awww thanks hehe!
What made you guy’s decide to enter modeling?
We decided to model when we had a glamour a photoshoot just for fun a couple years ago and when the photoshoot came out on our Facebooks (when Facebook was everyone’s everyday addiction) we got rave reviews! Everyone started wanting us to host clubs and model their clothing lines, we liked the extra money and perks so we’re still at it.
What’s been the craziest part of yours guy’s journey?
The craziest part of our journey is actually being recognized by celebrities. We think we are beautiful losers but it’s crazy when you think your being low key at the club and all of a sudden you tapped on the shoulder or sent a bottle your way like “Hey are you The Page Twins?
Does anything funny ever happen behind the scene of your guy’s shoots?
This was probably more embarrassing for Cat, but she was posing on the beach once when a bee came and kept hovering in her face. She ran and tripped and fell on something sharp that ripped her swimsuit bottom so she had a huge hole in exposing her left butt cheek to everyone. So glad she was not hurt, but it was HILARIOUS!
Do you guy’s have a lot of input in your guys photo shoot?
We actually don’t really have any input if we happen to be shooting with a photographer that has a good vision and good direction. We love to make photographers visions come alive so we always keep an open mind for creativity.
Tell us something our guy’s don’t know about you two yet?
We have gained a crazy obsession with Futurama on Netflix lately. We have been through about 8 seasons so far and have not been disappointed yet!
What would you guy’s be doing if you weren’t a model?
If we were not modeling we would be workaholics in our offices. We are Virgos so we can’t stop working even if we tried. Even while we sleep our minds are calculating. It’s so sad haha
What special skills do you guy’s have that no one know about?
Noel can speak Spanish and Catherine can speak conversational French.
What’s your guy’s favorite curse word?
Noels is Bleep bleeeep! Lol- Ladies never curse unless they have road rage like Noel does. J Cats is every curse word because she is the feisty twin.
What part of your bodies are you both most proud of?
Both of us have to agree on our noses. JK actually we both get the most compliments on our legs. Any lady can be proud of a pretty well toned set of legs—especially us high heel addicts.
What’s your guy’s biggest guilty pleasures?
Two words of the devil… DOUBLE DOUBLE!!! Lol who can resist some In -n-Out?
Have you guy’s ever gotten in trouble with the law?
YES! Noel is a totally speed demon so she has literally had 1 red light ticket and 3 tickets for driving 40mph over the limit. She might as well join Nascar.
What type of men are you guy’s into?
Noel likes her guys covered in tattoo and her guy has to be extremely cut. Her weakness is a sexy abs. Cat likes nerds.
Bad Boys or Nice Guy’s Why?
Nice guys! a. Sorry, we’re too cute for jail and bad guys need ride or die chicks willing to be locked up for them. We love nice guys who are romantic and know how to make a lady feel special.
Are you ladies currently single?
Yes ** Wink Wink. No really we are and Love it!
How important is sex to you guy’s in a relationship?
VERY. Sorry good looks and money can only take a guy so far. If you are boring in the bedroom its an extreme turn off.
Before we go, we have to ask: is it true one of you hates wearing panties?
Hahah hmmm maybe ! We’re not telling hehe
