My name is Shawna. I am 26. And I'm an Aquarius...
I tend to live outside the box, and absolutely love life and all of it's many twist and turns. I like adventure and living a life full of experiences! I want to be part of many brilliant artistic creations. Art in any form, created with passion, is beautiful. But of course, the most beautiful creations I have ever been a part of are not here on MM quite yet, they would be my gorgeous children! Yes, I am a very proud mama of 3! My daughter wants to model so badly, it's just adorable! Possibly a touch too much America's Next Top Model while she was a baby. However, if someone is interested in a mother/daughter shoot, trust me you'd get some fabulous shots from her! Her posing abilities make me jealous sometimes
My journey into modeling has been one of the best adventures I've ever had the, I'll go with 'testicular fortitude' (disregard the female issue) to force myself into accomplishing.
I used to have ridiculous stage freight, it was extremely frustrating because there is such a laundry list of things in life I plan to accomplish, to let something like an unnecessary 'fear of judgment', stand in my way. Really, fear to me, is not a very useful emotion. So, I decided to tackle a few, and not only is it something I'm very proud of, but the accomplishment has unearthed a real passion. The real goal for me was not to be the best, only to be able to say "I did my best!...NEXT!' It was also a dare, damn them!! Still...liberating, none the less.
I've never been a shy person, I like people, especially intelligent, interesting ones. And being raised by hippie, nudist parents pretty much destroyed a certain sense of modesty, while at the same time building a HUGE admiration of body acceptance and rising above status and labels to be able to see and accept people at their most raw level.
Everyone has an inner beauty that can be brought to the surface, even if they don't believe it is there. I send out many "thank yous" to the many photographers who have helped me find mine and done, in my opinion, a fantastic job of capturing something in me I never would have previously given myself credit for.
It just so happened that I ended up loving the creative outlet it has given me. Modeling is fun, I have a pretty sarcastic, twisted sense of humor sometimes, and it's fun to be somebody else for awhile. I like to laugh, and personally, I crack myself up...
So basically what I'm saying is my goals in this are simple, to do my best at every job and learn from each, while hopefully gaining enough experience to live up to my full capabilities in all areas I choose to pursue.
~Just so everyone knows, I am always up for TF, just for the artistic outlet. However, I also have a family to support, like many others, so at this point, I believe I am done doing nudes for TF, unless it is a concept I cannot refuse and/or I have previously agreed to a nude shoot with you. Those deals don't expire...lol....On that subject I guarantee my rates to be reasonable. I will shoot for as long or short as you'd like and for my nude work, my rate will start at $50 an hr., basically depending on the degree of nudity and the intended content. Since I definitely wouldn't consider myself "pro" by any means, I believe that is reasonable, if you feel differently or have any questions at all please feel free to message me. I'm a very easy going person and OBVIOUSLY I like to talk...lol...I also love to travel! My life can be very hectic at times, but getting out and going somewhere new keeps me balanced. That being said, if you are within a reasonable distance of me, let's just go with 100 miles, I will definitely consider travel, which I only require half of the gas money I use as "travel expenses" seeing as you are definitely creating half the work...lol...There are also times where this may be turned around as I do understand Photographers get paid for their work! If I send you a message and you are a photographer who only accepts paid assignments, please take a look at my work and see if we could work something reasonable out, if your interested of course! There are so many talented people here on MM, and I look forward to our future collaborations!
I would like to do lots of artistic and creative things with modeling and hope this site can be one of many platforms for that. Best wishes to all and thanks for visiting!
