"I hire photographers to collaborate with me to keep my portfolio fresh and new, keeping me competitive and in front of the industry. PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH ME AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HIRE. I always distinctively select the photographers I would like to work with long in advance of my portfolio shoot dates. Point being; please don't try to sell me your services. I'm an adult and can make my own choices without you shoving them down my throat. Thanks."

"I am good, but not an Angel. I do sin, but i am not the Devil. I am pretty, but not Beautiful. I have friends, but i am not the Peacemaker. I am a small girl in a big world, trying to find someone to Love."
"You are a living breathing creative magnet. You have the ability to control what you attract into your life. There have always been small select groups of individuals who are aware of how to work in harmony with this natural law of the universe: The Law of Attraction."
I'm pretty much just your typical above average female that will always accomplish anything I set out to do because I am determined to be successful in life. I like to think of myself as a very independent woman because anything I want or need I know I can eventually achieve on my own. In case you were wondering my ethnicity is Multi-Racial which is a mixture of Belizean, African American, Native American, Creole, with a dash of Puerto Rican, lol... and I embrace all of them. I am a college graduate from San Diego State University and I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Political Science and Psychology. While attending college I was also a member of (Gamma Alpha Chapter) Alpha Phi Sorority, Pre-Law Society, CJSA (Criminal Justice Student Association), and many more associations. Through out my college career I have always had every intention of attending Law School to pursue my dream of becoming an attorney, but right now I'm just not at point where I can fully commit to it do to personal reasons... But you have my word that that I will go in the near future...I don't believe in giving up my dreams. I firmly believe in and try to live my life by The Law of Attraction. I am very adventurous and I'm always looking for a new thrill and something I've never done before, because I like to take risks. I'm pretty unpredictable and surprise myself with the stuff I do or say sometimes. Modeling has really taken a place in my heart and I enjoy every minute of it. I love shooting and working with great talented new photographers because I'm always updating my portfolio. I'm currently working as a V.I.P. Host and Promotions Consultant for DJhere Productions, a Freelance Model, Promotion Model for MillerCoors, and I'm also just a big time Humanitarian (I volunteer for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Life Rolls On, Feeding America, and I Participate in golf tournaments that benefit The American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen for the Cure). I truly believe that my biggest strength and my biggest weakness is how compassionate I am. I take a lot of pleasure in the fact that I get along with the majority of the people I come in contact with and I always exhibit excellent professionalism. I have fun, but I'm also very serious about my work! I have a pretty good amount of experience in this industry because I've been doing this since I was a child and I am very confident in my modeling skills. Unfortunately I'm at a point in my modeling career where I will no longer shoot with just anyone because I have become very picky, so please send me your website info first. Even though I live in San Diego, I travel to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Orange County for Photo Shoots/Fashion Shows/Promotional Gigs regularly. My rate usually depends on the kind of work I'm being booked for. My goals for modeling are to expand my portfolio and become the best that I know I can be; Try and make it to the top and achieve my dream. Basically what I'm expecting to gain through this site is to find jobs as well as updating my portfolio, network within the industry, meet some interesting people with creative intriguing ideas, and see where my looks and this talent of mine can take me. Basically I just want to conquer the world, while staying a good person ;)
The Rest Is Still Unwritten...
Too many to name so just Ask ;)
Requirements For A Booking:
*UPDATE 6/28/11* I WILL NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACTS THAT RELEASE ALL OF MY RIGHT TO THE PHOTOS WITHOUT SOME KIND OF COMPENSATION... TFP means NO RELEASE (unless we discuss it before hand)...

My contract will simply states that we BOTH HAVE RIGHTS TO THE PHOTOS (after all it is my face... you can deny you took the picture but I cannot deny it's my face) and that you are only allowed to use my photos for your portfolio, website, or what ever else you may need them for... BUT you are not allowed to use my photos for Monetary Value unless we have discussed it before the shoot with written permission from me or unless you ask to get written permission from me when something comes up. (I've had a photographer make A LOT OF MONEY from photos of me without giving me a cent ever and trust me that is not a good feeling).

"A good woman does not live in fear of the future because of her past. Instead, she understands that her life experiences are merely lessons, meant to bring her closer to self-knowledge and unconditional self-love. She recognizes that her love has great value and must be reciprocated. If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears."
"A beautiful woman is able to let go of all inhibitions and enjoy the beauty of being a woman, after all the body is the greatest instrument you have been blessed with use it to your fullest."
"Infatuation - When you find somebody who is absolutely perfect; Love - When you realize that they aren't and it doesn't matter."
"You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, ... would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the f*ck on..."
"When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying."
"Success is following the pattern of life one enjoys most."
"It isn't what I do, but how I do it. It isn't what I say, but how I say it, and how I look when I do it and say it." -Mae West
"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between God and you; It was never between them and you anyway."
"You don't need to look for love. You should let it find you. That's why they call it falling, because you don't mean to... you just do."
"The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles"
"You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction."
**There is no such thing as a bad day; just bad moments that we choose to take with us all day long. We cannot control life's difficult moments but we can choose to make life less difficult.**
"I still love because each time I get hurt its a simple guidance that I'm that much closer to the right person."
"Sometimes you just need to distance yourself from people. If they care, they’ll notice. If they don’t, you know where they stand."
"Never regret anything that has happened in your life. It cannot be changed, undone, or forgotten so take it as a lesson learned and move on."
"If a guy can't handle a girl in sweatpants, he sure as hell doesn't deserve her in a wedding dress."
"I don't need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends I can be certain of."
"A woman bought you into this world, so you have no right to disrespect one."
"Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from his side to be equal. Under his arm to be protected and next to his heart to be loved."
"At some point you have to make a decision; boundaries don't keep people out, they just fence you in. Life is messy... That's how we are made; so you can waste your life drawing lines, or, you can live your life crossing them. Here's what I know... If you are willing to take a chance, the view from the other side is spectacular."
"Walking to the beat of my own drum. I've learned to accept myself, to not worry about what everyone thinks, to not compare myself to anything and to embrace my eccentricities."
"Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just take the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy....The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree."
"As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you LOVE. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back."
"Brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want something badly enough. They are there to keep out the other people"
— Randy Pausch
"I've made mistakes in my life. I've let people take advantage of me and I've accepted way less than I deserve. But I've learned from my bad choices and even though there are some things I can never get back and people who will never be sorry, I'll know better next time and I won't settle for anything less than I deserve."
"In life we do things, some we wish we had never done, some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads, but they all make us who we are. And in the end, those experiences, every detail about us, if we were to reverse any of them, we wouldn’t be at the exact place we are today. So just live, make mistakes, and have wonderful times. But never second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly where it is that you are going."
"Watch your Thoughts, they become words. Watch your Words, they become actions. Watch your Actions, they become habits. Watch your Habits, they become character. Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny. The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settle for. "
"Life is like a closet. You know, there are some things you can keep forever, and other things you have to get rid of when they don't fit anymore."
“For attractive lips, speaks words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you will never walk alone. People, even more than things; have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed: So Never Throw Out Anyone.”
- Audrey Hepburn
"The most romantic story is not romeo and Juliet who died together, but grandpa and grandma who grew old together."
"Break up the bad, insert the problems. Roll up the resentments, light up the solution, inhale the happiness and EXHALE the past."
"Money may not buy happiness, but it can keep us amused while we're waiting for happiness to arrive."
"A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully as if she were plain."
