(Still working on the baby "pouch" from 1/15/09. Measurements reflect post pregnancy weight; I'm almost there.)
To begin 2008...
I was "Stripped in the Subways" by Category_6!
Although it was challenging and fun, I am NO LONGER shooting nude work. The clothes are staying on.
(Paid implies will be selectively considered, however.)
To begin 2009...wow, where to start?
I'm back from my motherly hiatus; I am now a proud mother of 3.
I am a mother, an artist, an actress, a poet, a writer, a musician, a certified hypnotist, a life coach, an injured mail carrier (aaargh!)
April 2007 I decided to add model to the repertoire.
***September 09 I'm adding Cosmetology...doesn't stop!***
Still a work in progress. Ideas are still welcome, I may not be interested in all, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
I have a kind heart, but please do not mistake kindness or inexperience for weaknesses. I have not been modeling for very long, I'm no novice, and no where near a pro. I am very down-to-earth and VERY deep, I scare some people. I'm real, I ask that you be the same.
In addition to creating art and making money, I'm interested in developing industry relationships. I prefer to work with artisans. There's just a certain connection between artists...you know what I mean.
Paid work takes precendence of course and is always welcomed! As far as what you see in my port and what I need in my port is what will determine TF work. I am accepting mutually beneficial TF with progressive, quality, PROFESSIONAL photographers, MUA, hair and wardrobe stylists.
1)I am interested in the following genres:
-Parts modeling (especially jewelry)
-Book Covers (commission acceptable)
These particular categories are more conducive to my looks as far as what will help both the photographer and model pay the bills.
2)I am selectively interested in alternative modeling including:
-Tattoos (I don't have many, but why not put them to use?)
************REPEAT FROM ABOVE************
3)I am NO LONGER accepting nude assignments. Competitions and/or gallery submissions may be considered for implied work.
For the individuals that may need clarification on this choice, I have no need to fill my portfolio with images that do not reflect how I choose to market myself.
I consider nudity to be artistic, I love it, but I'm onto other endeavors and I don't care if sex does sell. Not looking to making my money that way.
I have done a lot of growth during my short time modeling. I have paid attention (when others thought I wasn't) and soaked up info like a sponge. I have also improved my discernment and perception of individuals, so please don't waste my time, I will not waste yours.
2008 introduced MY new release and contract. Nothing extreme or out of the ordinary, however, I feel the need to protect MY image as well as the photographer's...I knew you'd understand.
Feedback is always welcomed and thanks for stopping by.
