About MeI'm a creative person and while photography has always been a passion of mine, I've discovered that I really enjoy working with models to achieve High Fashion, artistic, and visually interesting shots. Now, I am seeking to increase my portfolio and broaden my scope.
Most of my portfolio up to this point has been straight portraiture, scenic and artistic images of whatever moves me. Recently though, I was asked to shoot images of various hairstyles on models by a local Hair Boutique, and the model/ fashion bug had me.
While flowers may be pretty, and babies are adorable, a live professional model is always in constant flux, ever evolving. They can show a range of emotion in just a few frames. I want to capture those fleeting moments- those beautiful, eye-catching, luminous moments.
I am easy to work with, and although I am starting to limit my TFCD's/TFP's, it never hurts to ask. I'm open for trade IF it will enhance my portfolio (i.e I don't already have similar images- no reflection on you as a model) or if you have something interesting to trade (props, wardrobe, anything I've been scrounging ebay for :-). If none of that applies to you, my rates are very reasonable, ecspecially considering how much time and effort I put into creating the finished images.
I do have a day-time alter ego, so my travel will be limited to weekends mostly~ unless of course you pay well. And I am a Mom with all that entails, so... I'm centrally located an hour south of Salisbury, MD, and hour north of VA Beach, VA, and I am open to traveling as far north as Baltimore/ DC and as far south as upper NC (as for driving). I'll gladly let you fly me anywhere (but really, that goes without saying :-)

I work a lot with a local MUA/Stylist Shannon Pruitt. She is fab and we compliment each other well. I have some clothing/props to use in shoots (a couple of corsets, chemise, jewlery, shoes scarves etc.) I tend to buy clothing I like even if it's not my size if I think I can use it in a photoshoot at some point.
I'm always looking for cool locations to shoot, especially since most models aren't close enough to my studio, so if you have a space/location etc, message me.
I think I've covered mostly everything, but it never hurts to ask if you have a question. Thanks for looking!
