Now: Hudson Valley, NY
I am hoping to make it to NYC and Boston areas a few times in June/July/August.
Planning on leaving the east coast PERMANENTLY this October and relocating to New Orleans.
Please send me a message if you'd like to discuss working together before I move!
I am currently living in upstate New York. Unfortunately, I am dealing with a serious family illness which means that I am only doing extremely selective PAID
work. My previous plans to move to New Orleans have been indefinitely postponed. To everyone I have spoken with about shooting on my way down, I will be in touch.**

I am an artistic, well-educated, outdoorsy, fun-loving yet quiet lady living in upstate New York (Dutchess County). I have a background in modeling for figure drawing classes, but just started modeling for the camera a bit over a year ago.
I am comfortable modeling for art nude, conceptual, sensual (but not overtly erotic - see my port for examples or ask me if you aren't sure), glamour and retro/pinup themes, though only the last two if they are tasteful (at my discretion).
I am not interested in always looking "beautiful" or "sexy" in a photograph. I am interested in good concepts, composition, and lighting.
I have an interesting wardrobe and can do basic hair & makeup (all hair & makeup styling in my portfolio was done by me).
At this time, I am only looking for paid work except in VERY rare cases - guaranteed tear sheets from reputable publications, or full team or high concept/expensive shoot ideas. My rates are usually negotiable & I prefer if you would tell me your budget up front than to have a back-and-forth.
If you are interested in doing a trade shoot with me and have something other than money to offer let me know. I will trade my modeling time for the chance to shoot other modeltogs. I will possibly trade for photographic equipment, especially film/lenses/darkroom access.
If you are someone who thinks that the exchange money ruins the "collaborative" nature of a shoot, then let's make it truly collaborative - give me access to all of the raw images, the right to edit them and to sell prints of anything we create together.
Always willing to travel if it's paid for.
Shoots must be set up either through MM messaging or email so that I have a written record of my schedule. I am happy to confirm a shoot via phone conversation after all the details have been worked out in writing.
It's very helpful if you put your LOCATION
as the subject of a private message so that I can keep organized and stay in touch if I am going to be in your area.
Looking forward to meeting you & possibly becoming your muse!
P.S. I am also an artist, focusing mainly on photography right now but relatively new to photographing models. Other models interested in doing a trade feel free to contact me! You can see my photographer profile here
