I have been on Model Mayhem for a little while now and I am ambitious and excited to broaden my modeling horizons! Bring it on, lovely photographers!!
Let me tell you a little about myself...
FIRSTLY I must admit I have tattoos. A small one on my wrist and a hand sized one on my back. I know this can be a problem for some photographers and blessing for others. I will not shoot nudes- UNLESS it is an implied shot catering to my tattoo. I am becoming a Elementary school teacher so I must maintain a certain degree of modesty.
SECONDLY, my hair is naturally a very dark brown but I tend to have it dyed a vibrant, dark red. I must admit I don't keep it perfectly in check and if dark root growth is a problem- tell me and I will be able to tell you if I can have it fixed in time for a shoot.
And LASTLY- I am a very open minded person and a camera ham to boot! I am myself an artist and have many ideas for shoots but not the camera skill. If you don't have any idea, by all means pick my brain! I like to ask questions and know everything I can before a shoot, so please be descriptive when contacting me :). I am open to many (though not all) types of ideas. I would love the opportunity to do shoots like....

Here is my Pinterest Board of Photo shoot Ideas I would LOVE to shoot:
MEETING/TRAVEL: If you have decided that you want to photograph me- thank you! I am honored to have sparked your interest! If you are in the Volusia County area, traveling will not pose a problem but if you are, lets say, from the Orlando area, depending on my schedule, this could be difficult for me . Please let me know if you are traveling to me or vice versa so I can make arrangements etc. Also, I like to know who I'm shooting with before hand so if there is anyway some open communication can be established via WebCam/Skype chat or Facebook I would greatly appreciate that. Even a simple phone call would be nice.
APPEARANCE: If I am to provide my own fashion, hair styling, and/or makeup- please let me know what you want. If I have it or can achieve it I will tell you. I am perfectly OK with having a MUA or any type of stylist. If fashion is provided, let me know what you want me to wear, if you need sizes etc.
SHOOTS: As I said before, nudes are out. Implieds will be considered based upon idea and my level of comfort with the photographer. Meeting strangers is edgy and nerve racking- if a skype date or phone call can be set up before a shoot I would feel better about not bringing an escort. Also, please let me know beforehand if you have an idea of where you want to shoot so I can be prepared for terrain, weather, etc.
When contacting me it would great if you please:
•leave contact info (email, Skype name, Facebook, etc)
•type of photography you want to do (please be detailed and specific)
•what I need to bring (fashion, makeup, props)
•When and where
