The life of a Stock Photography Model must be strange. Every where you go people think they "know you from somewhere"..
I know, it would be awesome if we could actually track her down.
I did so a few months ago! Can I haz a guest blog slot pls?
Did you really? Why?
I was as haunted as you.

I saw her face the full size of a transit van the other week, which is what prompted the post, but annoyingly my phone had died so I couldn't take a pic.
No model name yet but here's a source - http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-how-can-i-help-you-image2345214
and the photographer (aparently one of the best) - http://www.dreamstime.com/yuri_arcurs_info
I'm glad someone did a little research as opposed to tha awful article.
Update on this one - Dan Barker has uncovered her true identity, as mentioned in the comments on the site.
haha that's an awesome post, I like something fresh once in a while!
Aw man, I read through that whole thing hoping he actually uncovered the answer. Bah. :\
Similar overused stock photo girl - even has her own fan page: http://www.facebook.com/arianefans
Epic post Chris! Love it
Ha - the answer is in the post - and it's one of Yuri's best models. As a former stock photographer, I was going to give the answer but someone beat me to it. :-p Yuri is the best-selling stock photographer (and maybe photographer) of all time. :)
could be an identical faces you know.
I'm skeptical of the statement "smiling models people conversion rate." Heard it since college, haven't seen proof.
yes - I can evidentially call it out as BS. I abtested mildly bored blonde nubile versus grumpy middle aged stressed haggard for a finance site on whichtestwon and haggard spanked it by +27% although I will caution that direction of gaze was CTA oriented for grumpy haggard versus towards camera by blonde nubile.
