Update: I am taking a small break from modeling! I will ONLY be accepting PAID work during this time...feel free to message me! Hoping to do some fantastic work soon!!
It's beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.
I am 47 years young and I'm usually mistaken for 33-36 yrs old. I have been inundated since I turned 40 to do some photography work.
In my spare time, I take ballet lessons, which I love, and have been doing for 6 years now. I am also a licensed Cosmetologist so I'm able to do my own hair for shoots.
I am looking for work in Lifestyle/Commercial Modeling although I do love fashion/glamour and would never turn that down. I am always looking for interesting and creative projects, and enjoy working with individuals who are truly passionate about their work.
My goal in working together is to create the most stunning images of you that we possibly can!!! When we do a photo session together...there are two talented artists at work...one in front of the camera... and one behind the camera.
I will travel with expenses paid. Any travel 2 hrs + would be $25 hr traveling costs. No exception!
Please feel free to leave a note, or a tag. In addition, I always appreciate individual photo comments, positive or negative! After all, that's how we learn! Just as long as you're honest!
I am looking to expand my portfolio in some new directions. If you have any input, please let me know.
Currently, I am doing TFP on a VERY limited basis. My rates are very fair, and please don't hesitate to inquire!
I welcome all suggestions and opportunities. I am fun and easy to work with!!
I truely believe that "Age Is Just a Number."
Live your life and forget your age. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideas. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up wrinkles the soul. Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you donât mind, it doesnât matter.
Don't go through life, grow through life and in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.....

I had to post this critique given to me by the exceptionally talented Jerry Coleman MM # 106597. It meant alot to me and so I am paying tribute to him (thank you again Jerry) and this is what he had to say:

I am listening to Fur Elise by Beethoven. It is a beautiful melody which I once read was written after he saw a beautiful peasant girl walking along the road. It might have been written for you, but most importantly......it might have been written by you.
Your portfolio is a celebration. A celebration of unabashed, unashamed and unending joy. Yours is the joy of creation. You see more clearly than most that you are an artist, your every move, expression, and mood are an artistic expression for the camera. You often create your own concepts and you mostly do your own poses. But all have an overwhelming sense of joy. Your port should be titled The Joy of Creation.
Modeling is not a requirement of your life. You have a full and wonderful life apart from it. But it is your creative outlet, one you had so long just practiced on others. Make them beautiful, make them happy, make them create. Now it is your turn and you love it.
I saw a thread where you were listed as a model some had on their list of someone they wanted to shoot. Most thought it was because you are pretty for your age, maybe you thought that too. No, that is not it. You are pretty. But what they sense and see is the overpowering desire to create and the enchanting .......well joy.......with which you do it.
You approach shoot with excitement. Your enthusiasm in discussing the shoot gets the photographer excited too. I imagine many of your images are among the favorites of each photographer with whom you have shot.
i see you as content with life, and happy at home. You just seem to be a peace with yourself and your situation.
And so many photographers have a massive photo-crush on you because they know that if they ever shoot you that it will be a wonderful and completely creative experience. And so thier cameras lust for you. Mine does too.
