NOTE: I AM CURRENTLY ON HIATUS BECAUSE I BROKE MY LEFT FOOT AT THE END OF JUNE. I HOPE TO RETURN TO MODELING IN THE FALL.
I live in Buckhannon, WV, which is 35 minutes southeast of Clarksburg and one hour south of Morgantown. I am located 2.5 hours south of Pittsburgh, PA, 4 hours southeast of Columbus, Ohio and about 5 hours west of Washington DC.
I started shooting in 2005, but in 2009, I started doing it on a semi-regular basis. I have a great deal of ambition to succeed in my endeavors, and my schedule is finally allowing for me to put ample time into my modeling.
I am short, pierced and moderately tattooed. I feel most comfortable when I don't have to compromise who I am. The typical has never really been my style.
I am interested in glamor, horror, rocka-/psychobilly fashion, goth fashion, vintage, pin-up, dark art and fetish, some of which I already have experience in. I also have a theater background, play two musical instruments and have a degree in English literature.
I consider myself very versatile and will negotiate types of photos outside those aforementioned.
I have 15 piercings: three in each earlobe (the first set is stretched to 6 gauge), a cartilage stud in my right ear, industrial in my left ear, left and right tragus, navel, septum, both nipples and monroe.
I have nine tattoos: a large tattered Queen of Hearts card on my right shoulder blade, a Celtic cross on my left shoulder blade, a sleeping black cat on my lower back, two bats on my chest, a Libra symbol between my wrist and forearm, a blue-haired pin-up style skull on my upper left arm, a poison bottle on my left forearm and a small strawberry/moon combo on my ankle.
My eye color says "other" because they are blue-grey.
My body type fluctuates between petite and curvy to petite and more curvy. I am working on petite, athletic and curvy.
When I was pregnant with my son, I developed pre-eclampsia, which, among other things, caused me to gain 28 lbs of edema in my last four weeks of pregnancy. As a result, some of my skin, mainly in my midsection, is imperfect. For this reason, I am not comfortable shooting nudes unless I am confident that you can edit the worst of the flaws out, mainly because photographs can exaggerate their appearance. That being said, I do take good care of my body. I work out 3-5 days a week, every week.
Please note that I am a natural 34DD. If you need a small busted model, I am not right for you.
I prefer TF* and paid assignments at this time; however, if I really admire your work and we are in contact enough in advance, compensation can be granted.
I love using MUAs and hair stylists, but if they are not available, I am capable of doing both for our shoot, within reason.
I always bring an escort. Sometimes, it's my boyfriend, sometimes, a friend -- always a non-issue in the creative process. They are more like assistants than babysitters, I assure you. Models need assistants, too, and many photographers have benefited from having my escorts hold and carry things for them, too.
I have a fulltime job outside of modeling, which takes up my time Monday-Friday. I am available for shooting on weekends only. I will travel with enough notice and if it's a reasonable distance (up to 5 hours there). I am most often seen in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Please let me know if you're interested in working with me! I like to try to have my shoots booked a few weeks in advance for preparation purposes.
