About MeAloha!! My name is Desiree, I reside in the beautiful state of Hawaii on the prettiest island in the world.. "The Garden Island"!!
My goal for being on Model Mayhem is to hopefully find more work as a model and photographer. I started doing photography when I was 14 and started modeling at the age of 16 when I was in High School. Photography has always been something I thoroughly enjoy and take most delight in shooting people from infants to the elderly.
At the early age of 13 I was already determined to shoot "Models"! Playing around with my Mom's snapshot camera I dressed up my younger cousins in make-up and clothing and had them pose for me while I took their pictures at the beach. My love for shooting Models had grown and become my favorite kind of work.
I have shot Weddings, Sports, High School Events such as Prom, Community Events for the Newspaper, Reunions and much more but have decided to focus mainly on shooting Models. If my schedule permits and I am willing I could be available for Weddings etc. just let me know what you need.
My experience in modeling have been most rewarding for me in building my self-esteem and confidence. I have worked in many different settings and met a lot of wonderful down to earth people along the way.
My modeling experience from print ad work to fashion runway has afforded me one opportunity into the next such as commercials and acting and I'm finding I'm loving it immensely.
