Always a curvaceous kitty, I refuse to believe that a small body type is the only definition of beauty.
My passion is Jewelry Design and fashion in general. I have been everything from a Fashion Assistant to an Executive Assistant, from a bookkeeper to now a Property Manager. I feel as if I am able to exude my raw passion while still maintaining a polished and elegant feel in everyday life. I have gone from running massive orders from jewelry designers around the world to assisting in running a fashion show at the largest rockabilly convention (yay, Viva!)
I have past experience working with students of art photography and professional plus-sized modeling. With professional photography, I am re-building my portfolio as I am no longer plus-sized, but am very driven to make any shoot a success.
I am mainly looking for a photographer/MUA/hair artists with artistic vision. A photographer who can show a bit of plus-sized (40/32/40) curves as attractive... I don't believe there is one set standard for beauty. I can adapt well to most styles suggested/needed by the photographer, but prefer to have alternative and/or passion within the themes.
I do my own makeup whenever needed, unless a makeup artist is provided or creative control is needed elsewhere. Most clothing can be supplied by myself, I will provide a list of things in wardrobe if so needed.
During a first shoot with any new photographer I have no past history with, I will NOT do any nudity. I am not against implied artistic nudity, but only in circumstances I am comfortable with. Strategically placed objects have no objections either. I will NOT do adult media of any sort at any time.
I will work TFP or monetary compensation (including promotional gifts for any item modeled), depending on the type of shoot and your creativity and portfolio. I am willing to travel and if travel is needed, then all expenses must be covered in advance.
I am interested in anyone who wishes to bring more beauty to the forefront. I will do the best work I can for you.
Thank you for your time and consideration! Please feel free to email me via mysticnightsky at gmail with any other questions!
My current goal is a longterm photodiary, showing beauty at multiple sizes. I am starting a fitness plan which I would love to be documented from beginning to end. Please let me know if you would be interested in being the photographer or one of the photographers involved with this.

10/7/11 Goal Update: Well over 150 down and steadily losing. Hoping to tone up a bit more, but I am fascinated by the fact that I have collarbones. o.O
1/17/12 Goal Update: Almost to 200 lbs total lost. I want to dance a dervish and have someone capture it on camera. Send me a message, I want to make memories!

7/15/12 Goal Update: Back out of the hospital and it will be a bit before I can bounce off the walls and do ALL the things, but I am grateful to my family and friends. I am still 40 lbs over what is industry standard, but this journey has never been about standards. There is beauty in life, in the turn of an ankle, and the passion in your eyes. I can't wait to dance again, but until then, at least I am available for more shoots now! Please do not be concerned about me not being able to be healthy enough for shoots... I am still a force of nature and am mostly cannot participate in strength training - not work like shoots which I have specifically asked about.
10/6/12 Goal Update: With wonderful yoga, better sleep and the enjoyment of life, I feel like I am glowing. We should shoot!
5/28/13 Goal Update: Life is good and so is yoga. Back to running again and looking forward to a wonderful summer. I hope this finds you well!
