****I have recently started modeling for local life drawing groups in the Austin area, and I absolutely love it. I am always eager to model for other sessions, as well as for individual artists, whether for gestures, painting, or even sculpting. I excel in dynamic posing for gestures and I like to challenge myself (and you) in the long poses; please message me on here, or by e-mail, to discuss rates and scheduling.****
Hello, my name is Loli! I am a petite, energetic, and artistic model in the land of Austin, Texas. I have been modeling for over five years now, and I am constantly improving and looking for new ways to expand my portfolio, and more importantly, challenge myself. By joining Model Mayhem, the goal is really to meet fellow artists and make some wondrously beautiful collaborations.
I do NOT need direction on a shoot, but I am adaptable to the vision of the photographer, and I pride myself on producing dynamic poses during life drawing sessions and on camera. I think EVERY session and shoot should be an even collaboration between artists, and that both parties should give their 200% on the shoot; this means that I work my butt off during the job, and I hope you will as well. Though I am rather short, my body is proportionate and have been told that I appear taller in photographs (I'm not exactly sure what that means). That said, I am happy with my height and body shape, and I know I can rock it!
Body Modifications (all can be hidden for the right shoot):
-three tattoos (crab - left hand, snake - left ribcage, and runes - lower abdomen), septum ring, and ears pierced twice.
My hair is currently nearly shoulder-length, and will always be some variant of copper red.
The Artistic Vision
The reason that I love modeling is because collaborating with other wonderful artists on a shared creative vision brings me joy. I like being thrust into a new environment or story; being pushed and to test the extent my capabilities. Of course, not all photo shoots are stories, and that is fine, too. My goal is to be adaptable and fit into various genres of the industry, whether they be advertising, fine art, avante garde, or anything in between. Challenge me!
**The ideas I have at the moment involve underwater photography, polaroids, and body landscaping. If any of these ideas speak to you, PLEASE message me. I would like to do a trade with these concepts.**
The Thing About Nudes
Yes, I am more than willing to pose nude.
That said, I am a naturist, and would like, for the most part, my nude work to not go too far into the realm of "erotica" or overly-sexualized themes.
I am NOT okay with:
-touching myself, even if implied
-simulated sexy-times with other models, no matter the gender
I AM okay with:
-fine art nudes
-themed nudes (think wood nymph, or nudes with strong pieces in it ((jewelry, headpieces)))
-well-thought out, sensual themes
I would also like to add a disclaimer that I admire MANY erotic models on this site and others, and the photographers who shoot them. They are beautiful and fantastic - just because I don't want to have these photos in my own portfolio does not change this.
It's hard to know until you ask, right? Shoot me a message so we can make some fireworks!
