***Performed/Modeled in Fashion Show for cupidsfetishfeast.com for Buffalo Exchange, Uber, and Fascinations, February 14th 2004!!!
**January 13, 2004:
Maria is a very energetic and talented woman, with a
wonderful ability to look natural in front of the
camera. She also is very intuitive in posing, which
makes my job much easier, and she is very
light-hearted and makes for good company during the
shoot. She also is very devoted to making sure you
get exactly what you want out of a shoot, and never
leaves before giving it everything she can--and I
highly respect her work ethic.
It was a pleasure to work with her (and her son Max)
and I would reccomend her to anyone. Her talent and
dedication is extremely valuable to me, and results in
the strongest of work.
**Michelle7 will be hosting an on-line exhibition of a series of images that I made with Joe Farace during the last few months of my pregnancy. Thanks Joe, you're awesome:)
Note from Joe:
Jack Gilbert's comments on receiving the seven monochrome and one color image that make up the exhibition, was "...it's FANTASTIC work!!! Wow!!! We are truly honored!!! Your exhibit will most likely run in the month of February but if we have ANY openings, we'll bump it into January." Jack is being too nice, this work would have been impossible without Maria's contributions. Thank you, Maria.

***A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT ME: Mac8Hottie(PLEASE DO READ)***
For a year with Face National Models & Talent from 2000-2001, I mainly did promotional work. I worked for TFP from late 2001 to June 2002. I have done promotional jobs/projects. I have also done swimsuit, glamour, fashion, nude, fine art, casual, sport, and commercial work. My area/niche that I am most interested in is commercial, and of course figure. You may contact any of my previous photographers for reference at any time.
My goal right now as a model is to be published. I've also at crossroads of reality being a mother of 3, wife and a woman of almost 28....so I'm looking to find and do work that portrays me inside and out best.
My main goal as an actress is not to be the next Audrey Hepburn or the next Julia Roberts, I am going to be the next ME-on film, tv, and on stage.
I am a model who would rather see the quality and quantity of my work to be viewed, seen, and remembered over time passing rather than for that just one moment in time. I believe, accept, and flourish in the beauty of creation and life, such that is illustrated and permitted with that of the human form. I am always willing and will give my opinions and ideas when going into working with another artist or photographer. I am not just a model/talent, but someone who likes to create and demonstrate that of my creativity and love to show and share my perceptions/point of views. I also want to make a difference in and by modeling and acting. My vision in this beautiful world is create, and in that to illustrate what is not ordinarily expected or viewed, but rather taken someone and placing them somewhere out of their element. Also by taking an extreme, dangerous, or bewildering, "unspoken of" concept or an idea and making it come to life in a photo or series of photos. Making sure that an actual reality is demonstrated but also within an illumination and encapsulation of uniqueness, individuality, and divine beauty.
Beauty IS in the EYE of the Beholder -
Do, BE, Have, Create what makes YOU Happy -
