About Me

~*~   WHERE I'LL BE:

~*~    PLEASE NOTE:  I am currently accepting only limited TFP/TFCD projects.  Paid assignments are given first priority.  However, I will of course consider TF* if I feel the project will benefit my port - so please don't hesitate to put your thoughts and ideas out there.  My rates are very reasonable and I'd be happy to discuss them with you on an individual basis.

~*~   The following is the first verse to a poem written by Maya Angelou called Phenomenal Woman, which happens to not only be my favorite poem of all time, but also my inspriation ...

"Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me."

~*~   ABOUT ME:
Hi!  My name is Dannon (yes, like the yogurt).  I'm 26.  Originally from Pensacola, Florida and moved to Tallahassee in 2000.  I  worked in the legal field for seven years but recently changed career paths and now I work at a ladies dance & fitness studio.  I LOVE the beach, pumpkin spice frappachinos from Starbucks and playing with my dog, Ava.

~*~   WHY I'M HERE:
I'm on this site for exposure, networking, feedback and advice.  A while back I finally decided to get serious about becoming a plus size model.  The first contest I entered was  a model search for a magazine; I was a top 5 finalist, which encouraged me to keep chasing my dream of one day becoming a plus size supermodel.

If you're looking for a plus model to work with, I hope that you will consider working with me.  I'm open minded and would be willing to try new areas or types of modeling to get some more experience under my belt. 

I'm looking to build a network of photographers as well as hair and make up artists in Tallahassee and throughout the region who are interested in working with plus size models and helping me get a portfolio together.  I love to have a good time and laugh, but I'm very professional and disciplined when it comes down to business.  I'm the kind of person that is very determined about the things I set my mind to.  If I want something, I won't stop till I get it. 

~*~Traveling is not a problem - in fact, I love to travel.  However, it usually requires me to take some time off of work, which obviously cuts into my pay.  Not cool.  So unless arrangements are specifically made otherwise, travel costs must be covered if you want to shoot, unless I'm already planning on being in your area or something of that nature... you get my drift.

If I sound like the type of person you would like to shoot with or if you have any other questions please message me!
