I bring 100% to the table, always. I am easy going and creative - both socially and in front of the camera, have a flexible schedule, and am very reliable and punctual. My wardrobe is formidable, ranging from casual and elegant Fashion to Fantasy, Sci-fi and Fetish costumes. I am able to make any desired outfits to complement the project. I am also a MUA and have experience as a Stylist.
First and foremost, I am a Performer with the ability to morph into a myriad of personas; and boundless thirst for creation, versatility and art.
That energy shines through in my images.

Willing to Travel? I only travel for projects that are paid assigments, with travel expenses and accomodations paid for. I take frequent trips to CA during which I am open for potential TFP shoots. Look for travel dates at the top of this profile.
Image Sharing: Unless specified otherwise in a written contract, I am entitled to a photo CD with all raw images from our photoshoot in 300 DPI or higher resolution, or a full set of prints, for use at my own disposal. I have experience as a graphic artist - all photos seen on AngelicStar.net have been re-sized, color corrected and watermarked by me. It is my goal to present our hard work in the most professional way possible! All photos will be approved by the photographer before they are posted publically. You will receive full credit and a link to your website/e-mail/portfolio etc. when I post your images, and in the event that a company seeks to publish the images in print, your name will also be credited for them.
Please e-mail me if you are interested in shooting with me!
