I am no longer modeling full time, I might selectively accept a special couture assignment that incorporates my interests detailed below. Instead I am finally focusing on my own photography studio and my time these days is honestly spent more behind the camera ...

Just for the record, I am a photographer turned model, not a model turned photographer. I began my photography path nearly a decade before some friends convinced me that I was pretty enough to get in front of the camera. I am really glad I did. It has broaden my creative experience in a way I can't express without writing an essay and I have so many fond memories of fantastic times collaborating with other amazing photographers.
You can also find more of my images on my

If you have any modeling projects you want to collaborate with me on...
they need to be especially creative or if you are in need of an excellent photography assistant I am also available for this too.
I have been an alt pinup, fetish, fine art nude model for many years
and honestly I am tired of doing just nudes, please don't ask this of me anymore as I have plenty of images of this nature and looking to something more vintage couture. I am ok with topless as I know people like to photograph my tattoo as well and I am very proud of my natural chest. BUT if you want to shoot THIS, then I want styling not just another fine art nude shot of me. I am especially seeking couture and/or vintage styling/accessories and images that thread along with these ideas.
If you have an interesting project idea please don't hesitate to approach me with an email.
I am very into CORSETS, so things that are Victorian or Steampunk I dig right now, or anything Vintage inspired!
I would gladly accept these assignments. It would be excellent if you are working with a designer or stylist.
I also have an extensive collection of lingerie, corsets and other sexy bits, n accessories in my wardrobe collection.
I have been a dancer for many years as well so I have a lot in my closet.
I am seeking paid work of course but I will consider partial pay/trade for clothing items I can keep, etc. TF* if I feel that your work has the quality level, exposure and artistic sense I would want to spend time with you to collaborate. Just ask me and we can very likely work some arrangement out, I am always willing to work within your budget. Travel must always be compensated.
BTW some of my modeling portfolio have been post-processed by me for use
