i have had a great experience working TFP with unique photographers who have something to offer creatively.
my about me is a little different..
historical disclosure: i started my physical training in december 2003 and lost a great deal of weight through diet and exercise not through surgery. i don't have a perfect body, i had rebuilt my body with weight training, cardio, yoga and nutrition and am constantly refining it. this is why you will see pictures of me at different sizes in my portfolio.
i enjoyed documenting my current refinements and really enjoyed taking pictures of my beginning body transformations through photography. i like to share with people that it is possible to change your life through good old fashioned hard work and discipline versus surgery.
oh - and a personal note, i really don't love overedited work. at least where images of me are concerned. i make a huge effort to show raw, unedited pictures as much as possible - perhaps to the dismay of some of the photographers i work with. others think it makes me easy to work with! i am not a botoxed, lipo'd chick with huge fake boobs that wants to look perfect and be photoshopped to perfection digitally. so if we didn't capture it naturally, i don't generally use it. that's just me. so if you see something you like, GOOD. then maybe we did something right!
thanks for taking the time to read about me
thank you for all the kind picture, tag and emails by the way..i appreciate all the insights, very supportive comments and positive energy. thank you for all the love!
i am not a model. this has been a great opportunity to stay in shape and try new, fun things i would never have the chance to do otherwise. i haven't been around for a while as life has shifted my priorities.
i had been varying the elements in my diet - removing sugar and alcohol, low carb intake and high protein in my daily diet to lose weight since i have not been training on a regular basis. this enabled me to drop several dress sizes in a short amount of time this year. i am not a size 1/2 anymore. i am a healthy, curvacious 6/8 and regained my face and bust - no longer so hard looking from all that weight training but not actively seeking portfolio work anymore thanks so much for taking the time to visit my page!
i love seeing my friends' work on here, it's always great to visit thanks for the love and..
blessings to everyone for 2012 xx

A Special Thank You to Ben Ramsey who was the first photographer to shoot me and made me feel beautiful. You set the standard incredibly high.
If you have the opportunity to work with Tchalla Hawk I cannot recommend him highly enough for his professionalism and integrity.
