It is imperative that you read this before communicating with me. Upon booking, I assume you have read, understood, and agreed to all policies

I am a 26 year old professional traveling model who is energetic, positive, and fun. I love my job more than anything.
I live for that moment when the model and photographer click and collaborate to create something refreshing. This is my art. This is my life. I live for the ability to convey your mood and idea. Be clear about what you trying to be able to communicate, and I will go above and beyond to make it happen.
I love working with the hobbyist and the professional alike assuming they are respectful, safe, and just generally not an ass. I make a good living modeling. In other words, I do not have to shoot with you if you are dangerous, rude, egocentric, tasteless or otherwise. I only work with people who are fun! ^_____^
LOCATION: I live in Charlotte NC and am always available to book locally throughout the Carolinas. My primary location reflects where I am now. When I do travel outside the Carolinas, I typically rely on public transportation/rides. Available to host traveling models in Charlotte, NC.
In Charlotte, I model full-time locally for artists on top of being a marketing student. (Read as: I know business.)
COMPENSATION: My rate is 125/hr when I am traveling outside the Carolinas. I do not shoot TFP. I hate to seem harsh, but if you think we are shooting without me receiving compensation, there has clearly been a misunderstanding. Those paying a 25% deposit get first priority in booking. If you don't pay a deposit, you understand that should a booking come that is willing to pay a deposit, your time slot will be forfeited to them.
Freelance models are dictated by supply, demand, and price just like any other business. The demand for professional models are on the rise as both professional and hobbyist photographers alike see the benefit of hiring professional models and the number of professional models is sustained. As new models build the proper portfolio and skills to move into making it a full-time job, other professional models retire or move away from the business. My supply (ie. number of hours of availability) cannot change. As such, the only thing that can change is to increase the price. Let's be respectful and understanding of each other's time. :D
OTHER FORMS OF COMPENSATION COULD INCLUDE: high end Canon lenses, Alien Bees, and extremely high end latex, corsets, and designer fashion at their used value
PHONE NUMBERS/MEETINGS: Phone numbers are only provided after a shoot is confirmed for confirmation and emergencies. Please do not ask to book via text, phone call, "Starbucks meeting",or Skype.
BOOKING: Typically one month in advance. I've noticed booking further out than that tends to encourage cancellations. Speaking of...
CANCELLATIONS: Cancellations one week in advance are subject to a cancellation fee equivalent to the amount of the shoot unless you paid your deposit for me to keep. I'm just like your dentist. ;)
LIMITATIONS: I do not shoot open leg, pink, bent over from behind to see pink, laying down to see pink, touching my privates, or any adult work. Fashion fetish only ie. stockings, corsets, latex. (This is what I get asked most! Please read it again.)
PUBIC HAIR: I do currently have a bush. I will not shave it under any circumstances. I love it. My photographers love it, and I get many of my bookings because of my bush. No, I will not get more bookings without it.
ALTERATIONS: No tats or piercings.
PICTURES: I do not expect them since I do not shoot TF* Cash is my payment. That said: I love having pictures shared with me at your discretion. I love posting the results of our efforts on social media with your credits.
OTHER: Ten Years of Dance Experience. Student pursuing a BA in Marketing. Actress and super duper mega nerd. I work at more than twenty comic conventions across the country each year.
I'm a one woman full team. (Model, photographer, makeup artist, hair stylist, wardrobe stylist/designer) Links to my two other Modelmayhem portfolios can be found in my top 12.
Hitherto the nude has always been represented in poses which presuppose an audience. But my women are simple, honest creatures who are concerned with nothing beyond their physical occupations... it is as if you were looking through a keyhole. (Edgar Degas)
Have you worked with MikkiMarvel? Add Credits for MikkiMarvel! >>
"Mikki's lithe form and short hair give her a pixie-like quality that is well suited for environmental nudes. She does a great job at posing. I also appreciate the fact that she's dedicated enough to lay down in a dew-covered field in the chilly springtime dawn. I hope to shoot... with her again some day!" more less
"Mikki was great to work with. She takes her profession seriously."
"MikkiMarvel had a great attitude and was easy to work with on our shoot. She is graceful in her movements. I was happy, even surprised, what I was able to capture. I had given her my ideas for makeup and hairstyle. She pulled off the look very well. I look forward to worki...ng with her again." more less
"Had a chance to work with Mikki last week - a wonderful shoot. No problems in getting things scheduled, and she arrived with exactly the wardrobe choices we had discussed. She brought a ton of energy to the studio and was always willing to work with me to make a concept come ...to life. Her poses and expressions are varied, artistic, and beautiful. Can't wait to book her again on her next trip to the area!" more less
Credit NotesI've worked with thousands of artists of many different mediums. I'm so grateful to anyone and everyone that has booked with me over the years.
