*Update as of 7.03.13 - I am currently not working as I had another open heart surgery not too long ago, and suffered from complications that put me in a coma for a week. As a result of those I also had to get an internal defibrillator implanted and my recovery process has been much harder than with my previous surgeries. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in working together, and I apologize for my abscence and non response to emails, but I have been focused on getting better so that hopefully soon I'll be able to start working again. It's been an unexpected set back, but I've been working hard to overcome it and get back to feeling like my old self again. Thank you for your understanding and support right now, I very much appreciate it
***If you would like to discuss setting up a shoot please message me/email, as comments often get overlooked. Thank you!
I am trying to make modeling into more than just a hobby right now, I view it as my business and treat it as such. I love doing it and my passion for it is endless, but I want to be serious about it as well. My view on life is if you can do something you love doing, then do it!
I live about 45 minutes outside Seattle and I dont really mind making the trip out there to shoot, its a worthwhile cause to me
But anything farther south I usually like a little gas compensation. I am also willing to travel up north but have the same aspect, anything outside pretty much an hour and it would be very much appreciated! That being said there are always exceptions to everything so if that isnt an option for you then let me know and I'm sure we can work something out.
I am able to do my own hair and make up, I have done it for every picture in my port. I have my own make up kit, that is not extensive right now but is slowly growing the more I shoot, but if you need something extreme I suggest hiring a MUA/Hair Stylist. I am really only good with the basics.
I can provide my own clothes if needed, as long as you tell me ahead of time exactly what you are looking for. I dont own a lavish collection of clothes but Sometimes I can pick something up if needed. I havent had many issues in this area so far, and just like with my make up I am trying to expand my wardrobe for shooting, but as of yet there are some things that I probably dont have.
I do have a scar from having 3 open heart surgeries. I have found most photographers dont have a problem photoshopping it out or leaving it, the choice is up to you. I wish there was something I could do about it, but alas there isnt.... Its what has kept me alive and as much as I dislike it somedays, it is a small price to pay for what it has given me.
Right now I am accepting Both TFP/TFCD And Paid work. Unless there is nudity involved where I only accept Paid and Select TFP/CD. My rate ranges from 75-100 dollars an hour depending on the set, with a 2 hour min, but I am always willing to negotiate. I do Not do "open leg" shots. My objective here is not Porn etc so if thats what your looking for then I am not your girl. If there is nudity I also would Like to have an idea where the pictures are going, what they will be used for etc, just dont want a bunch of nude photos floating around
I also usually bring an escort to my shoots. I realize that is a problem for some and I'm sorry if that prohibits us from working together. The people I choose to accompany me are very professional at all times and realize that I am at a job.
My schedule is usually pretty open on weekends so those work best for me, I just need to know at least a week beforehand so I can work out all the arrangements. I find that the more planning and time taken to schedule things the better they often turn out, and that is my goal! I want things to not only be a pleasurable and lucrative experience for me but for you as well, because if I am not giving you what you want then I have not done my job.
I am very responsible and professional but that doesnt mean that I dont consider modeling fun! Its a passion to me not just work and I love it. I go into every shoot bursting with creativity, energy, and a huge smile. I am trying to really amp up my modeling in high gear right now so if you are at all interested then shoot me a message, Id love to hear from you!
Hope to work with you soon!
