About Me

► "You're the complete package - that sweet face, those emotive eyes, flowing hair, magnificent body combined with talent and enthusiasm.  I'd be happy to shoot again." -- Steve, RSH Photography

I grew up in a home full of painters, so you might say I've been posing my whole life. Most of my experience has been in a fine arts classroom - but the response to my recent photography work has been very flattering and so much fun!

► "It is always easy when working with a model like you.  Not only do you have a great look and rocking figure, but you are a natural in front of the lens and know how to bring out the shutterbug in each of us." -- Chris, Pirate King Photography

[[ Summary of Qualifications: ]]
• 10+ years professional experience
• Superior understanding of anatomy, lighting, art history, and classical poses
• Exceptional ability to develop poses, coordinate with other models, and utilize costumes and props
• Adaptable to a variety of artistic styles and levels of direction
• Excellent body awareness, flexibility, muscle memory, and comfort with nudity

► "I was a bit intimidated at first because of your experience compared to mine, but you have a fantastic personality that made it truly comfortable to work with you." -- Josh - Josh King Photography

[[ A Note About Nudes & Erotic Work: ]]
Most of my work is done nude - I have no reservations about posing nude for non-photographic fine art works.  However, I am very selective about posing nude for photography.  I am willing to work with other models, nude or clothed, in casual as well as romantic or implied erotic poses.  While I am open to the possibility of fetish elements, I will NOT participate in any work that includes violent or non-consent imagery.  I am absolutely NOT willing to shave my pubic hair.  Thank you for understanding!

► "I really enjoyed working with you.  Love your free-spirit attitude and willingness to go all out for the shot!" -- Scott, JD of Austin

[[ Body Modifications: ]]
• one full back tattoo (in progress - can be obscured with professional makeup)
• one small wrist tattoo (simple black lettering on inner right wrist)
• one tattooed line of inch-high script (stylized black lettering on inner left forearm)
• helix (18g) and earlobes (20g) of each ear both pierced once

► "Getting good pictures isn't a surprise when working with someone who's so willing to try things." -- Steve, Visual Delights
