About me
Please, kindly read my profile and take a quick look at my portfolio before contacting me...thanks!

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.

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 to do it for me. I keep my finger and toe nails manicured and painted, just in case a shoot comes up during the current month. I have one 1-square-inch tattoo on my outer right ankle and one navel piercing, and that is all for body modifications. I am very familiar with my most flattering angles and poses, yet I do encourage who I'm working with to push me further with posing if need be (i.e., if i need to arch my back more, etc). I keep limber and move a lot in order to be able to pull off very flexible and strong poses. I have A Bachelor's Degree from the Southwest University of Visual Arts. I have five years experience in stage acting. I prefer to keep myself as a clean canvas for photographers to use creatively as they choose.

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, and am working hard to improve it even more. (Feel free to ask how it's going! :))

As an artist by day, I would be excited to be a part of your artwork.

Limitations: Artistic and glamor nudes are welcome. However, Open-leg shots, simulated eroticism and adult/XXX photography are material I don't feel comfortable with doing. Please respect these boundaries. :)

• I am available to meet, work and travel all weekdays and weekend days, from 7 am to 10 pm.
• 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.

"Depends On Assignment" means I do both TFP and paid work, under certain conditions.

Paid assignments:

If you'd like me to model for you...

-For anything containing any kind of nudity,
-For the second time for you without trade of services,
-When the shoot will not directly benefit my portfolio, and/or
-You have little to no experience shooting models and 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 do TFP work with experienced photographers I haven't worked with before, for photos that will benefit my portfolio. With these photographers, I will shoot TPF...

-when I am shooting with them for the very first time,
-if the photographer will trade with me for another skill or service they offer (such as hair services, a very good quality print of a photo we've taken, or a piece of wardrobe, for example)
-Anyone needing a model for photos to promote a business or event or for advertising art, publication, etc.

Under these conditions, chances are I'll drop everything to work with you TFP. :)

• I may ask questions about your contract, just because I want to make sure I understand the agreement between us, but I've never had a problem signing one to shoot with a photographer. :)
• I do not drive for personal reasons, so one of my responsibilities as a model is to arrange my own transportation, whether by bus, cab, or car. If it is comfortable and not inconvenient for you, I might ask if I may be able to ride with you, if we are shooting on location outdoors. Usually I can get to studio locations by bus.

Any questions? Feel free to ask, I'm an open book.

I hope to work with you! :)

I hope to be involved in Moda Provocateur for SAAF, and other fashion/hair/makeup shows, during the upcoming Spring! :)

Work experience:

I have been an official model for Arizona Photo Events for 5 years.

I have walked the runway...

for Circus: The Greatest Hair and Makeup Show on Earth, by the Aveda Institute.
for the Pima Community College Spring 2013 fashion show "Once Upon A Time",
and for Indo Cotton, in the "Beauty of the Nations" show, at the Javelina Cantina, at the Doubletree Hotel.
