About Me~` IMPORTANT:: PLEASE READ MY ENTIRE BIO BEFORE CONTACTING ME!! `~
:::[ BIO ]:::
I'm Irish, Cherokee, African American & Norwegian. My first pin-up was at the tender age of just days old (diapers and binkies were all the rage then), and my first nude followed mere months later. Little did my parents know that they were starting me on the path of a lifelong obsession with the camera and its many facets. Later, after realizing that archaeology wasn't like Indiana Jones (There isn't even a minor in fedoras & bullwhips!?! Lame.) I nonetheless decided to attend college, gaining a Bachelor of Arts in Dramatic Arts from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Modern and period theater acting? Definitely. Directing and costuming? Oh yes. A course in TV & Film Acting, including runway and still photography modeling? You couldnât keep me away. My education, as well as my experience in local theater & film communities, has helped me hone my talents and refine my passions. My degree & project experience have cultivated my make-up skills to near art-form, and are fantastic in a pinch (e.g., when no MUA is present). Add in archetypes, general body movement & body sculpting, as well as dance from a wide array of styles, and you have a veritable armory of skills to apply to diverse shots.
:::[ WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH ME ]:::
- I take my work seriously, and always bring a professional attitude to a project while enjoying the process.
- I love the use of photography, model & environment to tell a story or create fashion lines, and enjoy discussing this creative process.
- I'm here to learn. If I'm doing something incorrectly, taboo, or otherwise unacceptable, I want & need to know so I can make adjustments.

:::[ NUDITY ]:::
While full nudity is not an option, I love draping, silhouettes, back-lighting and artistic risque.

For these shoots, I may have one of my two professional assistants with me as well.
