About MeI am looking for models to help me take my portfolio to the next level.
Please shoot me a message if you're interested in collaborating.
Interested in shooting fashion editorial SFW & NSFW. I am in more need for the later.
Please read everything below before contacting me . . .

I am a female photographer originally from South Carolina who is currently residing in Daytona Beach, Florida. I am 22 years old and started photographing senior portraits, families, weddings, and events. As of Jan ’13 I am a full time photography student looking to perfect my skills and make a career in the fashion industry.
I shoot fashion and nude work. Occasionally I like to mix the two because I am inspired by European fashion. My fashion work has been labeled sexual or erotic by my professors. I do not mind this and that is the direction I wish to take my work. My nude work on the other hand is generally shot with film in a voyeuristic manner. If you do not know what that means, please look it up. These are not meant to be sexual. Nudity is natural to me.
TF & COMPENSATION
Photography has not only been my job for two years but it is also what I am going to college for. I have an excellent work ethic and I am highly motivated. I specialize in building modeling portfolios. I am totally comfortable working with models of many different experience levels. If you need a chill, fun photographer that always gets the job done- I am your girl. If you have a specfic project that you need help recruiting people for, I can easily help you manage and put together this. Right now my minimum rate is $100 but I will be increasing my rate after the new year.
I am pretty selective with who I work with on a TF basis. However, it never hurts to ask. I encourage everyone to ask about shoots. But if I decline working with you TF it does not mean that you should message me back with rude remarks. I believe in being polite and nice to everyone you meet. I have worked as a photographer for years and if I feel as if you do not fit a current project, I will need to be compensated. Please keep in mind that I am a broke college student. Photography is an expensive field. It isn’t anything personal.
* I will edit at my own pace UNLESS I am compensated. If you want your photos by a certain date- PAY ME. I have yet to not produce photos from a shoot. Be patient. I am a FULL TIME STUDENT. I am true to my word; if I say you will get images, you will. If you are rude to me, threaten me in any way- I will not give you images and legal actions will be taken. I now check references.
WHAT I WILL NOT SHOOT TF
I do not like overly posed, senior portraits, type of photos. I also do not shoot photos that look like a JCpenny ad. I might live at the beach but I am not the typical photographer you’d find here. I do not shoot cheesy bikini shots. I do not shoot bikes or cars. I will not do spreads nude. And I do not shoot male nudes. I do not shoot anything generic. I need more edge than that for me to be able to use them in my portfolio. I CAN shoot all of these things and have before but I will not do it without compensation.
I am always looking for new faces to photograph. I prefer models to have some experience modeling before we work together but I am comfortable with totally new models. With new models, I like to set up a Skype chat or just talk on the phone to go over everything. If I feel like you have enough experience, I do not require this but if you’d like to chat we can. I expect models to be on time and prepared what really makes this happen is communication. If you’re running late, no worries! Just text me and let me know what’s going on. I do not always provide a MUA and rarely do for our first shoot. I do not provide wardrobe for models. So clear communication about what outfits you own is important. I would like a general idea of what I am going to shoot before we meet to shoot. Photos of clothes laid out are super helpful! Misunderstandings happen a lot.
I NEVER PAY MODELS please do not message me with rates. I will only consider paying models that will help get my photos attention from people that matter, not your facebook friends, and have years experience and are signed. There are select freelance models that I may pay.
Lastly, TRUST ME. I pay attention to fashion ads and I keep up with things. I will not make you look stupid or ugly. But I aim for interesting images that will catch your attention.
MAKEUP & HAIR
I am always interested in collaborating with MUAs on projects. I look for people that are dedicated to what they do just as much as I am. I expect MUAs to be on time and be prepared. I am extremely thorough about looks and generally plan the look before the shoot, complete with sample photos. I cannot afford to pay MUAs at this time. However, I always provide you with photos of the shoot and I am willing to help provide models or even shoot models of your choice for a particular project you really want photos of to compensate you.
CLOTHING LINES & WARDROBE STYLIST
I am highly interested in collaborating with wardrobe styles, designers, small businesses, or clothing lines; anything fashion related. Please email me if you are interested in collaborating.
I shoot sets for Suicidegirls as of Jan ’13. You must already have applied and been accepted for us to shoot as well as bring two forms of ID. I will contact necessary people to double check that you are in fact a SG or a Hopeful.
I am totally cool with escorts. Please no male escorts. I am a tiny female photographer- men I do not know can make me uncomfortable. This includes boyfriends or husbands. If you have a girlfriend, do not bring her. General rule is no romantically involved person should tag along to a shoot. It has posed problems with me in the past despite me being a straight female. Do not bring multiple escorts. Do not bring someone that is distracting or likes to set up a shot for me- I will ask them to leave or I will stop shooting.
I take what I do seriously. I do not typically work with people that take what they do, modeling or makeup, as anything less than serious. I understand things come up but bailing in advance and the day of are totally different. Depending on how you cancel or bail, I might blow you off or send you rates when we try to reschedule. The key to working with me is communication.
I now am doing test videoshoots.
