I am a burlesque perfomer, so naturally I enjoy doing vintage inspired assignments, and pinups. I love doing nudes and lingerie. I do NOT normally do TFPs, but am sometimes willing to do them if I can use the work for my own promotional purposes. I LOVE to travel, and am willing to go anywhere in the world to shoot, given my travel is paid. I have a lot of fun at my shoots, and am very creative. I usually do all my own hair and makeup, as well as styling, but of course enjoy having it done for me too! I often bring a lot of options for costumes/clothing/props, and am generally open to however the photographer likes to shoot. I follow direction well, and can go with the flow. Please feel free to email if you have any questions! Thanks!!
