Hello and thanks for showing an interest in my MM portfolio!
I feel that my portfolio needs more depth, variety, and edge, therefore I am looking to expand my portfolio with various types of ALTERNATIVE STYLES, pinup, retro, gothic, fashion, glamour, artistic, headshots, and makeup shots with local photographers or photographers traveling to my area.
My biggest goal right now is to add ARTISTIC flair and creativity to my portfolio. I have a lot of images in my portfolio that are beautiful, but that do not necessarily represent me and all that I want to portray. I want to do many different themes, concepts, and styles! The crazier, more artistic the theme, the better! So don't be afraid to approach me with different themes and styles that are not currently represented in my portfolio!
I love to meet & work with new, creative industry professionals and am open to any test, TF*, or paid photo opportunities. All reasonable offers will be carefully considered. Please contact me with your creative ideas or offers.
I do work full time, so am usually only available on the weekends for shoots. Please feel free to contact me for my general availability, or to see about a specific date.
-PHOTO SHOOT WISH LIST-
I always have tons of ideas for outfits & themes for photo shoots....
Here are just a few of my current obsessions:
*Carousel/Carnival Couture In an over-the-top elegant dress on a carousel & in a theme park/carnival setting - think popcorn, cotton candy, bright colors, masks, feathers, rhinestones, sequins, etc!
*Bathing Beauty In a funky bathtub - or something like a vintage claw foot tub, just having fun with the bubbles.
*Rain on my Parade With an Umbrella, possibly a nice vintage parasol, very whimsical - lots of fun shots to be had there! I have a vision that involves my own yellow umbrella + polka dot rain boots as well.
*Makeup Beauty Shots Dramatic makeup head shots - looking for MUAs for this as well! looking to do rhinestones, glitter, mask-looking full face makeup, very flashy looks, clown/mime makeup, and anything else the MUA is wanting to try out & experiment with. i am very open to makeup looks, and i am also capable of doing a lot of looks on myself.
*Pinup Styles very cheesy and typical pinup poses ala vargas! wardrobe, makeup, and hair would be helpful, but can be provided by me as well.
*Fairy Tale particularly dark fairy tales, or fairy tales & princesses gone wrong.... 1. Sleeping beauty - me lying "dead" w/ pale makeup and bright lips with flowers all around me - very dark and moody. need creative lighting. Also would like to do a sexy couture fashion snow white. i have a dress for this: it's actually more like lingerie- bright blue, silky, lacey, and racey. i would also wear red thigh high stockings with bows at the top, blue heels, a big red bow in very messy teased black hair, lots of bright red lipstick, and some very bold jewelry including a yellow apple necklace. i would want to pose in the forrest, in a very high-fashion style setting. some poses with a very bright shiney red apple, some lying on the forrest floor amongst leaves after having bitten into the "poisoned" apple, etc. (Check out examples in my Once Upon a Time list!)
*Candy-Coated Sexy candy girl with pink cotton candy & a great big lollipop & various other confections such as bubble gum, ice cream, confetti, balloons, etc. with me wearing white or pink, with lots of lace and ruffles and bows, maybe a ruffled petticoat. hair in pigtails or curly and very bouncy. very innocent but flirty with a fluffy cheesy feel. (just check out my list: Sugar-Coated for inspiration)
*Cosplay, Lolita, Fruits, Decora Fashion Cosplay, lolita, Japanese fashion style shots ala FRUiTS... (i have lots of funky japanese style clothes, with bright colors, and crazy combinations - this is how i normally dress on a day-to-day basis....) I also have several hand-made anime character costumes from past anime conventions I have attended. (Some great inspiration in my Super Kawaii!!! and Hot Fashion lists)
*Any other innovative and creative fashion, editorial, or glamour themes
*Anything similar to the photos marked in any of my lists, as these are my favorite types of modeling & photography (see below)
If you feel interested in any of these shoots, have ideas to add, or questions about more details of the shoots i want to try, go ahead and contact me and let me know which ones, so we can discuss them in further detail!
-THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND-
-When at a shoot, I treat everyone, including myself, with respect. I believe a successful shoot is one where everyone involved is at ease, comfortable, friendly, upbeat, mature, efficient, and participating in the creative process.
-I reserve the right to bring a personal escort on every photo shoot. This escort will be very professional and will either remain quietly in the background of all sessions, or assist the photographer or model if needed.
