About MeI was with Barbizon models, and am currently an independent model and aspiring business woman. I was Miss Congeniality in Miss Universe Canada 2010, and won Beauty for a Cause at Miss Earth Canada 2012. I am part Middle Eastern, part Russian, modeled for Adolfo designs at Montreal Fashion Week, as well as Karv Couture for a Miss Universe Canada Fashion show in Montreal, among many other fashion shows. I have traveled around the world, work with different cultures well and am a lot of fun to work with.
My rates are reasonable as I charge for corporate work, but I do time for print for other creatives like photographers and MUAs on projects that are mutually beneficial.
I am inspired by Annie Leibovitz, JUCO, Alessandro Dal Buoni, Federico Fellini's movies, Jason Kibbler, Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca, (swimwear only Estevez & Beloso), Fadil Beshara, LOVE Mert & Marcus, Mario Testino, love Ellen von Unwerth
I am an artist, I paint, and am into technology, tech entrepreneurship as it relates to modeling. I took business at university and now am studying computer code, java and html (Lord have mercy!). I have very creative ideas like jumping into fountains, into the snow -30 Celsius in a mini dress and boots. I have a fun crazy life working, studying, and trying to start a little business. I want to be the next Mark Zuckberg when I grow up!
I am fun to work with but I am a consummate professional. I have been on CNN, CBC, to publications in Italy, New Zealand, Brazil for human rights work and/or modeling.
I usually bring a chaperon to shoots, generally male with muscles lol. I had a weird experience on a shoot once, and so did other female model friends, so I totally prefer to bring a friend so there is no drama. I love shooting and think photography should be fun and carefree, focus on producing great images! :-D .
I recognize that most photographers I have worked with are awesome. However, to that weird guy who thought model mayhem is match.com (and his odd friends), I don't mix personal with professional, I have read PUA, pick-up artists can't fool me. I am extremely happy in my personal relationship with the most awesome guy in the world. I am here to take beautiful photos only. I love shooting, laughing, taking great pictures.
I have a project taking pictures of Ottawa-Gatineau to promote the beauty of this wonderful city.
I love photos that radiate joy and light! I have a sunny personality. As a model I might not smile a lot but I love backgrounds that make people smile, including sun, nature, water.
