Please note : I now have a smart phone BUT a new phone number. I'm new to smart phones so be patient while I learn how to use it to do internet stuff on it.
* The first slot in my portfolio is a true-to-what-I-look-like head shot. Should I make any changes in hair cut or color I will post that fact here until I am able to update the photo. Note: MY HAIR IS LONGER than in this photo, other than that I look the same. 2nd note: I have not updated images on mm or my website in a few months. Because I have been spending all that time updating my own photography website. Labor of love (or is it addiction?).
*** TRAVEL Updates: none current ***
I live mostly in Fremont. I like traveling and I have a passport.
I have been modeling as my profession since 2003. This is my job - it can be fun but I take it seriously. I've worked a lot in the fine art circles. I am extremly comfortable with nudity. I also do fashion, glamour, underwater, fetish, bondage and limited erotic. Please be aware that I am NOT interested in doing PORN. I have nothing against it, I am just not interested in participating.
When contacting me about shooting PLEASE include info about the TYPE of shoot. I will assume you have read my profile and that we will be working at my posted rates unless you initially approach me with something else.
**My Rates ARE negotiable. **
RATES: (rates are per hour unless you are booking at a day rate)
$20 per hr figure-drawing / life painting
$30 per hr fashion/glamour/portrait
$50 per hr fine-art nude / artistic nude
$75 per hr playboy-style nudes / glamour nudes.
$150 per hr Underwater (nude or clothed)
$200 per hr Erotic / Fetish / non-suspension Bondage (I DON'T do porn)
Body Painting rates vary depending on assignment and type of paint used.
Day rates includes any of the above types of shoots or combination there of, I do want to know before hand the styles you are wanting to do.
$ 500 - Half day rate (4 hours)
$1,000 - Day rate (8 hours)
(the math: Booking me for 4 hours of bondage at my hourly rate would be $800 BUT booking me at a half day rate for bondage, 4hrs, is $500 ).
I am up for most challenges. I am good at my job, and I am worth every penny. My rates are MORE than reasonable and they ARE negotiable. I also provide receipts.
I work well with other models, male or female. I am not shy about intertwining with other models as long as I know they are okay with contact.
TF: I do limited TF shoots but I am an artist myself and enjoy helping fellow artists create. posing with live bunnies, snakes, tarantulas? yes please!! if you happen to know a good bee wrangler PLEASE let me know.
if you are a model AND a photographer and want to trade posing for posing lets talk
TRAVEL: Willing to travel. Have valid passport. I expect travel expenses to be paid for, especially if I am doing TF with you. Unless prior arrangements have been made.
TATTOOS, PIERCINGS, & MISC: butterfly tattoo at the base of my spine - I take no offense covering it, or retouching it out. Navel ring - it's never come out, seriously the ring is defective - I'd take it out if I could. Double earlobe piercings and 3 cartilage piercings in my left ear - Easy to take out. I have two small hair braids behind my left ear (since 1996), unless you are Christain Bale, or paying me a ton of money I will not take them out. I avoid Tan lines like plague, but sometimes it is unavoidable, I post updates on any tan lines I get.
HAIR & MAKEUP: Please let me know in advance about your Hair & Makeup desires as I typically do not wear make up or 'fix' my hair. I prefer looking natural, but I am good with Makeup, I am only ok with hair. My hair is very straight. If you need it curled and don't have a stylist, I need to know at least 24 hours in advance.
HAIR- Meaning pubic hair: I usually have a bush (images in my port should give you an idea of it). Any removal requests have an extra fee attached to it. So unless you specifically request trimmed or removed I will come as I am.
CONTACT: Model Mayhem message or regular email (listed on my website).
WARDROBE/PROPS: lingerie, sheer silk scarves, heels, calf high black boots, stockings, fishnets, handcuffs, vampire teeth, fabrics, and other normal things like jeans n stuff.
TEMPERATURE: Please use common sense about weather. Being cold during shoots will show in color photographs as a blue tinge in the skin especially in the legs. I realize that location shoots/sessions cannot always be ideal. But sometimes it's just too cold and in that event you should have a back up plan. Also the length of time exposed to the environment makes a huge difference. If you are shooting in the elements you should be well educated about Hypothermia and how quickly it can set it and the symptoms. I'll pose in snow or the pacific ocean, but shooting is only going to last maybe 5 or so minutes and I demand hot chocolate/hot water and I MUST have the ability to warm up after. I am usually willing to work with you on your idea in the cold, with the understanding that if I say it's too cold we move on to the next idea, location, etc WITHOUT you treating me like I'm a huge wuss (because I'm not). I don't like being cold but I CAN work in it for a finite about of time.
MISC: Outdoor photographers please be able to recognize things like poison oak/ivy, etc. and point it out to me. if we are shooting in the sun or hiking to the location please let me know before hand so I can plan properly - shoes, clothing, bug spray, sunblock properly. Or have sunblock/bugspray available for me AND give me time [on the clock] to apply it. A little bit of planning goes a long way. Poison ivy/oak/sunburns/tan lines are all things that puts us models outta work for days, or weeks. Our bodies and skin are part of our job.
I am on facebook, OneModelPlace (#138322), iStudio (#477152).
Check out my website for more photos.
Erotic/Fetish photos are available upon request.
I am also a Photographer. My photographer page: MM #1404987
**IMPORTANT Medical NOTE**
I am a life-long Migraine sufferer. I have a medication that helps with most occurrences. I can pose on the medication but I try to avoid it and also try to avoid driving, if we have a shoot scheduled and I get a migraine and knock it out with medication and you are willing to pick me up Awesome! I also try to avoid direct harsh sunlight after a migraine as it can retrigger it. In the event of a severe Migraine I will contact any bookings for that day and have to cancel.
