About Me

Please, kindly read my profile and take a quick look at my portfolio before contacting me...thanks, I really appreciate it. :) Also - I've changed looks, so I will jump at the chance to do a high-quality shoot right now, and have a very flexible schedule, as I am self-employed.

About me as a model: As a visual artist myself, I would be very excited to be a part of your artwork. Think of me as a piece of your art medium. The passion and drive I have to do photography modeling keeps me reliable and striving to make it happen, on time, and ready to shoot upon arrival, with a can-do attitude. I have happily worked with over five dozen photographers in the Tucson and Phoenix area.

As a model in Arizona, I am known for being interesting, making great conversation while working, and making a lot of my photographers laugh...I like to have as much fun as possible during shoots, while keeping the work flowing. I am best known for my reputation as a plus-size model, but I "re-branded" myself, by losing 6 sizes. I feel GREAT about my new body, my muscle tone is showing through, and I am continuing to work hard to improve it even more. I appear leggy, because I have a short waist and very long limbs, which gives me the look without being 5"10. I have a varied wardrobe which is constantly growing. I do my own makeup and hair for shoots, according to the style of the shoot, and have been for the past five years (unless you want a makeup artist/stylist to do it for me, which is perfectly fine.) I keep my finger and toenails manicured and painted, just in case a shoot comes up during the current month (I am a fan of detail.) There are no easily visible modifications on my body, just one tiny tattoo on my right ankle, and a navel ring; that's all for body modifications (I have yet to even pierce my ears.)
I do encourage who I'm working with to push me further with posing and give me dynamics (i.e., if I need to arch my back more, etc, please do tell me - I will bend over backwards for a great photo...literally...)

As for my educational background, I have A Bachelor's Degree from the Southwest University of Visual Arts, in advertising art and animation - meaning I can talk shop with you, use technical terms, and know what you are talking about I have five years experience in stage acting.

Limitations: Artistic and glamor nudes are welcome. However, I don't feel comfy doing open-leg shots, erotic, adult/XXX, and foot/fetish photography. Also, during shooting, I don't feel comfy talking about my body during a shoot, or with a person touching me without asking first. This is just to let you know what I am comfy with and am not comfy with so we can work together happily, as a team.

I am available to meet, work and travel all weekdays and weekend days, from 7 am to 7pm (nighttime photography will need to be discussed.) I can provide excellent shooting locations all over town and state, both in studio and outdoors. References, ID, resume and rates also available upon request by email.

Compensation details:

"Depends On Assignment" means I do both TFP and paid work.

Paid assignments:
If you'd like me to model for you...
-For nudes,
-When the shoot will not directly benefit my portfolio, and/or
-You would like my coaching,

I will be happy to discuss hourly rates. I offer private photo shooting sessions for reasonable rates, which are priced depending on the content of the shoot. Please feel free to contact me with any questions; Rates available upon request.

TFP Assignments:

I am in dire need of TFP shooting at the moment, to update my portfolio, as I have recently very much changed my look. For TFP shooting, I would like you to have a great portfolio, or:

-A Digital SLR camera and knowledge of how to use the manual settings on it (i.e., aperture, shutter speed, ISO, flash compensation and spot meter)
-Knowledge of lighting your subject
-Photo editing skills and software

If this sounds like you, I would like to hear from you.



Any questions? Feel free to ask, I'm an open book. I hope to work with you! :)
