Valerie ShadeModel Female Sacramento, California, US
Mayhem # 2431845
Greetings earthlings! My name is Valerie.
I'm an alt/fetish model in the Sacramento area and my focus is on the creative aspects of the model/photography experience. I'm here to make something. I'm interested and available for alternative, art, fetish, horror, glamour, and nude work. I favor the avant-garde, creative, dark, dreamy, emotive, kitsch, surreal and weird.
I am semi-retired at this point and I'm becoming selective with who I work with and what I want to shoot. My goals and visions of what I want to create are changing. Needless to say, don't hesitate to still contact me. I don't bite! If you're interested in working with me, please message me on here or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I generally provide my own make-up and styling, with my husband on hair. However, I don't mind using a makeup artist, hair stylist, and/or collaborate on styling for a shoot so long as it's discussed. For wardrobe purposes, all the stats on the side are correct, but in regards to dress/clothing size, I can fit from 0-2.
I'm more than willing to travel and try to do so as much as possible. I trek to the Bay Area and Southern California semi-frequently. I also travel out of state on occasion.
I am professional and take that term seriously. I expect that to be reciprocated.
I am pretty light-hearted and always have a good time during a shoot. I have the mouth of a sailor and bletch frequently. Always a class act
Due to my work schedule, I am only available on weekends, unless stated otherwise and/or I'm traveling.
My definition of EROTIC work: Implied sexual situations, eye contact, raw, full nudity but NOTHING explicit i.e. nothing clinical, like up close and personal shots of my pink and/or stink. I am not interested in shooting any insertion/penetration or sexual situations.
My definition of FETISH work: Displaying specific fetishism and/or fetish fashion I'm interested in, including pantyhose/stockings, lingerie, heels, masks/blindfolds and latex. Certain forms of bondage are also acceptable, including rope/suspension, damsel in distress, gags, clothespins/clamps, sensory deprivation, impact toys and (limited) objectification.
To the above definitions, please feel free to ask for any clarification regarding limits and comfort levels. Communication is key!
