Hey there modelmayhem world! I'm Beth 'Pixie' Hopkins :)
I believe I am a dynamic, multi dimensional, and easy to work with model. I am also an amateur photographer, amateur makeup artist, and have an interest in fashion journalism and am passionate about the fashion world in general! But my main love in the fashion world is, of course, modeling.
I have neglected this profile for over a year as I have had some health and personal issues. I struggled, and continue to struggle, with Anorexia. Obviously it is not a good idea to be modeling during this time so I took a break. I am now healthy however and have won my battle so far although it is still a tough fight! As a result of recovering I have obviously put on a healthy amount of weight and my doctors agree I am now at my optimum healthy size. I naturally am a bit of a bigger girl with curves, although I am not quite 'plus size'. I am somewhere between straight size and plus size, in a grey area I like to call a "normal" size.
I hope I can actually use this new body to my advantage and help spread a message of positive body images in the industry!
I was a ballerina and competitive dancer (modern, hip hop, breakdancing, jazz, contemporary, etc) for 14 years. I was also agency represented as a child and worked in multiple films. I feel all of these things have given me a great understanding of how to use and move my body in different ways, giving me the skills to nail the shot!
I also deal with some disability issues when it comes to walking distances. For this reason I sometimes use a cane and wheelchair, however I am fine to stand and move without these in shoots. I hope this can actually work to my advantage as I am always willing to do shoots in my wheelchair or with my cane as well as without. Thus I can look like a totally normal model, or show another aspect of myself!
I am living back in Niagara again now so would love to work again with some local photographers who I have already worked with :)
I am now a student at Brock University, studying Psychology and Philosophy, so that takes up a large portion of my time but in my spare time I will save some space for my modeling.
