I agree with Chrissie. I've had bad experiences but don't expect everyone to be the same.
To the OP; I think you're being very fair in giving the model a second chance. There is no excuse these days not to contact someone to say you can't make it...even if you send a text or get a friend to call. I've been doing this for 20 years, before the days of internet modelling, and I have never no-showed. In my experience, if someone no shows once, they will more than likely do it again. Glad you've got it sorted though and are happy with your arrangement.
how come you didnt wait a few days before starting this thread to see if the model did get in touch ?
The original shoot was meant to be Thursday 20th I waited the whole weekend to give her a fair chance, I was concerned something bad may have happened in her life so I waited. I thought it appropriate to seek advice when I did.
