Hi there! Welcome to my profile!
CURRENTLY SHOOTING AND WANTING TO SHOOT:
- Tiki Pinup
I started modeling in October 2010 and have fallen madly in love. I am hard-working and creative, I bring a lot of ideas to each shoot and am good at coming up with ideas in the moment. I have 14 years of ballet experience under my belt so moving smoothly and creating all sorts of poses comes easily to me. On top of my ballet background, I also have experience with theater, jewelry and accessory making, some woodworking, making chainmail, sculpting and many other art forms. Modeling has become another type of artistic expression for me and is definitely my favorite these days. While I mainly shoot pinup, I really enjoy working on other types of shoots.
I have had work published both nationally and internationally. More publications to come so stay tuned! I was also featured in the Voodoo Swing music video for "West Coast Boogie".
I currently have a monroe piercing, a 16g septum piercing, a bow with cherries tattoo on one foot, a pink rose with a honeybee on it tattooed on the other foot, a black widow behind my right ear, and a large tattoo that is almost done on my left thigh. All of these can be easily covered/hidden for shoots. I am a natural redhead so I am very, very pale with many freckles.
What you can expect to get when you book with me:
- A hard-working, creative, prepared model.
- Well done hair and makeup. I generally do my own but also like to see what others can bring to the table.
- Creative, unique poses.
- I collaborate beforehand, it takes both ends to create quality photographs.
- Lots of wardrobe options. I have an extensive collection of clothing, shoes and accessories for just about any pinup or alt look. From corsets and gorgeous lingerie to sophisticated dresses to cute casual clothes, I have it all.
- A model that can take direction.
- Credited photos, I always, always, always credit everyone that worked on a photo.
- Promotion. I work hard to get my photos out there, I submit to publications on a regular basis (unseen work only) as well as sites that feature pinups. I also attend events as often as I am able.
If you are interested in creating some awesome art with me, send me a message with your availability and any ideas you might have for themes, wardrobe/styling and locations or which idea of mine you'd like to work with me on. I look forward to hearing from you!
