I'm an old soul, I've always loved old music (1940's-1960's) and old black and white movies. I watched my Mother draw on her cat eye liner and played in her 1960's wigs. I played in peignoir sets and fur covered kitten heels left behind by an eccentric aunt. I didn't start modeling til 2008. I grew up with low self esteem and over the years built my confidence/self esteem and wanted to push my limits and force myself to do something outside of my comfort zone. Modeling helped me to do something I was afraid of, but also something I knew I'd love as I'm such a girly girl. I discovered pinup and many of the plus size pinup styles out there and met mutual kindred spirits. My love of pinup has been a life long discovery and I am constantly learning and loving it more and more.
My modeling staples include:
Corsets, thigh highs, garter belt, gloves, scarves, lingerie, feather boa, pencil skirt, sexy pushup bra/panty sets, jewelry, heels, red lipstick, pink lipstick, various eyeshadows, hair flowers, hair accessories, wigs, bags, sunglasses, and anything leopard or with a vintage/retro feel!
I am looking to start setting up shoots again in April.
If you want to shoot, feel free to contact me with your ideas and please scroll down to see mine!
Upcoming/still need to set up dates for shoots with or shoot again, with:
Motor City Pinups
"With me, there is always more than meets the eye..."
I am interested in beauty and art, creativity and imagination,
creating or capturing a moment in time.
My favorite artists are Avedon and Arbus for mood and composition and Elvgren and DeBerardinis for sensuality and playfulness.
Throughout history the curvaceous and voluptuous woman was considered the ideal. Then came the 1960s and the Twiggy era of Thin is In.
After 40 years of being ridiculed and shunned by society's beauty standards, the revolution has begun to reclaim that curvy women are beautiful, sexy and SASSY!
I am looking into Specialty Plus size modeling,
especially glamour/pin up and some fetish.
I am open minded and sensual and like that to come out
in my pictures.
I am interested in sexy, sensual, edgy, beautiful and artistic..
Lingerie and implied nudes, pinup...
I recently started doing some emotional photography as well and am really liking it.
I am not considering topless assignments at this time; if I did, the project would have to be unique in its art concept. I will do implied nudes.
Obviously, being well endowed, I get approached by many photographers for topless, which I have done a small percentage of since I started, but that is not really what I am interested in, nor what I want to be known for.
I have my own photo release and will sign yours with stipulations we both agree to.
My goal is to create a diverse and interesting portfolio and become better known in the plus size modeling industry.
It has been more than (4) years now since I first started modeling.
I realize now I have much more control of my images and want what I want, as well as what the photographer wants.
Some of the photographers on here are gwc's (guys with camera)
who just want to see women with their clothes off.
I have no patience for photographers looking to hook up or get cheap thrills.
I would like to create something beautiful, profound and artistic or just something fun and different.
A good photographer will see me for the model I am and know we can create something great, regardless of clothing.
*Artistic Partial Nudes
*Fantasy/ Sci-Fi/Some Horror-
(No cemeteries-I know it is a common and interesting place to shoot, but I believe in the sacredness of the grave and that the living families left behind, value that sacredness of their lost loved ones last place of rest, and I would never want to intrude upon that.)
*Web Content-( Would have to discuss type- no porn)
*Photography for Purposes of Art
*Shoots with other models
TFP is an option if it is mutually beneficial and total collaboration takes place.
No one is superior, we are partners.
If YOU want to direct the shoot-
Standard rate is $50-75/hr, preferably with a 3 hour minimum.
Fees/Wardrobe/Assignments ARE all negotiable.
Wardrobe change is usually 3 outfits or more, unless there is a theme.
I want to cover a wide scope of emotions in my images.
I also would like to do some editorial and commercial images.
I have tons of ideas for shoots, I just need photographers to share my vision or give me some of their own.
I love themed shoots, but spur of the moment is priceless as well.
Would love to do something with wild makeup, crazy wigs, shoes and props...
Just go wild with it and have fun!!!
I do my own makeup but would wholly embrace working with a great MUA.
Creating is my passion. Whether I am drawing, modeling, writing poetry or pursuing some other outlet...
I love to experiment and am fun and playful.
Ask any of my photographers, I am a joy to work with!
A model's "presence" gets her the job;
a model's "personality" keeps her the job.
A modeling shoot is a COLLABORATIVE effort.
I am always professional and expect the same.
"It's tough to say what makes a client book a particular model for the first time, but I think that clients tend to work with me again because of my professional attitude. To me, professionalism has a lot to do with taking care of the small details, and doing it consistently. I think dependability counts for a lot with clients. My goal is never to be a part of the chaos. I try to be one less thing they have to worry about, and I think that attitude is appreciated. plus models are beginning to become prominent role models for young women, and are starting to provide a counterpoint to the images adolescents see everyday in the mainstream media.
It is my hope that plus modeling becomes even more integrated into the mainstream as time goes on. As voluptuous, curvy figures become more common on television and in magazines, the appreciation of classical femininity can't help but further permeate the collective unconscious and that is good news for everyone."
-Plus Size Model, Gabrielle Taber
"You must remember the value that you add to others
and NOT just what others have added to you."
I am not mainstream model material and am not looking to get rich on this and have no pipe dreams of becoming famous.
I am a little fish in a big pond, but I SURE enjoy the swim!
I am bigger than the average plus model of size 12 and up,
but I'm quite curvy.
Im a 42DDD/E, with big thighs and have a very "plump" rump, no skinny minnie here
Some photographers will like that, some will not.
The ones that like it, LOVE me!
I'm looking for a photographer who wants a woman who is soft, voluptuous and curvy,
someone who appreciates the more hourglass, buxom, plus size figure.
I am comfortable posing alone or with someone.
I have not done many group shots or modeled WITH many other models, other than a few, but would definitely welcome collaboration.
I think a woman's body is beautiful;
the curve of the breast,
the indentation of the waist and hip,
the tilt of the neck,
Art in it's purest form....
1940's, 50's, 60's, (retro), also renaissance period
Cupcakes and frosting
Bathtub/Shower/Jacuzzi *only with a twist
Milk and Honey
Butterflies, Dragonflies, Flowers and Gems
Hair extensions and or color pieces, wigs
Girl with Girl
I am on various other modeling websites as well as Lady Scarlett.
my own page and a movie/documentary

I prefer Yahoo, as I'm on it much more often than anything else.
One of my favorite places to meet/interview with someone is Starbucks.
I have met so many people here, instead of mapquesting it for photographers and fellow models,
I am just posting the location.
Here is the address:
