My name is Cassandra Leigh and welcome to my MM portfolio. I'm 23 and currently live in Victoria BC. I stand about 5'4 and I have auborn hair, hazel eyes and an olive complexion. My measurements are 41' (bust) , 28' (waist) , 38' (hips). I mainly model pinup and retro glamour but I like to streatch out into the different tastes and concepts in the modeling world.
Heres some background and a little bit about why I model:
I love the feeling of being able to express emotions, imagination, design, and technique though the art of a camera lens. I want to create memories that will inspire every day people to embrace a diverse variety of artistic ingenuity. I'm not interested in fame and fortune but expression, creativity and the enjoyment of creating art with different types of people and personalities. I'm open minded and willing to embrace different concepts, traditions, critiques and constructive criticism to the fullest.
My entire life I’ve struggled with overcoming obesity, getting healthy and trying to gear into a healthier lifestyle. I finally decided to take charge of my life, joined a volunteer fire department and continued on to loose over 100lbs. I model because I want to show that through enough determination and perseverance you can do anything with enough drive regardless of your physical stature. I did not loose the weight to become skinny but to become healthy. I embrace my body and all of its imperfections and quirks. They are my unique signature and make me who I am. I believe people are beautiful in every shape, color and size. My goal is to break the illusion of society’s understanding of "proper" body types for modeling. I'm still curvy, bodacious, and rock my hourglass like time itself is going out of style!
