About MeI am 24 years old and I’ve known I wanted to be a model since I was 3 years old walking the living room runway for my grandparents. I have 6 years of experience ranging from various photo shoots, local fashion shows, local car shows, Go-go dancing and promotional modeling. Although I do have experience I know that there is still so much for me to learn so I’m like a sponge and I try to soak up every suggestion, pointers, and anything new from the photographers or anyone I work with involving modeling.
My looks can range as young as 16 years old to 26 years old depending on hair, makeup and wardrobe. I’ve mainly done a lot of bikini work because of my body type and I do enjoy that, but as much as I enjoy it, I would like to venture out and also try other areas of modeling such as high fashion, commercial and artistic to name a few. I have plenty of ideas, so if you don’t, I’, prepared.
When doing a shoot I always bring someone to assist me with hair, makeup and to also be that extra eye. This person doesn’t get in the way of the shoot but is there to help me as well as the photographer that I’m working with, as needed. This person also takes a few photos/mini-videos throughout the shoot for me to put in my modeling scrapbook.
As far as wardrobe, I have a closet full of clothes that range dramatically in style, so depending on the ideas/themes we discuss, I might just have everything we need. (I also always bring extras; clothes, accessories and props.)
I prefer to do my own hair and have the person with me do any necessary touch ups, but if you have a hairstylist, that is perfectly fine too. I would just like for us to all be on the same page so that everyone gets the looks that they want out of the finished product. I can do my own make-up (simple/dramatic), but like working with a hairstylist, I don’t mind working with a makeup artist and I always bring my own cover-up to match my skin tone (just in case).
Before doing a shoot, I like to have at least 3 goals for looks/shots that we wish to get out of the shoot. I’m very easy to work with and I know that during the duration of the shoot, reach will reach our goal look/shot and then some more, but it’s always good to have something to work towards.
I would love to get paid for all of the work that I do, but I know that isn’t always the case. I will do paid work and trade work. If you would like to do a trade for print or trade for CD, in my experience with that, it works well when you have a look and I have a look. Any photographers looking to work with me, please expect to sign a model release that we will discuss before the shoot. This allows us to both get what we want out of the shoot and the finished product.
As serious as I take modeling, I have a very silly personality which makes me really fun to work with. We will get a lot done as well as have a bunch of laughs in the process. If you’re interested in working with me (after reading all of this), please feel free to send me a message. I look forward to hearing your ideas and working with you. Thank you!
