My (stage)name is Leona Anne. You will get to know my real name if we work together, but until then, I'd rather my real name stay off the internet. I hope you understand.
I have been a model since I was 18 - about 9+ years now. I have an extensive portfolio, ranging from swimsuit to editorial and more. I much prefer the artistic nude type of modeling, though. I feel more comfortable naked than clothed.
I provide my own wardrobe and makeup and hair styles.
I am originally from Connecticut, but I lived in Hawaii, then California and now New York. I visit the city regularly.
I love TFP shoots - always have and always will. It's more relaxed without any pressure. HOWEVER, if the shoot is going to use up my full day or if it 100% nudity, no clothed, I do expect some compensation. Even if it's just paying for my parking or gas, it just helps me gain a bit of confidence in taking it all off. If I really like you, I'll do TFP, all the time, every time. It means we each brought something to each others profile.
If you pay, I'll go. If you won't pay, I'll see if I can afford it.
ABOUT MY SHOOTS
I move around a lot. I know how to move to make my body look good. I know what looks good with my form and body. I take direction well and I can form any expression on my face that you require. I love being naked and have no qualms about taking it all off.
I am very fond of making eye contact with the camera - I like to pretend that I can see through the lens to the photographer's eye. I also like to look off in the distance.
I will guarantee you this: I will be the most unique person you have ever met or worked with. I will say stuff that will make you laugh and then feel bad for laughing at. I will do crazy things with my makeup and hair and make you wonder what you got yourself into. But most of all, I will try to make you comfortable around me.
MY THOUGHTS ON ESCORTS
bring along an escort the first few times (especially if the shoot is nude), so be prepared. I have a few different escorts that I use and I can provide names, phone numbers, dates and such, from photographers, attesting to their credibility as escorts, how they do not interfere with shoots and how they are simply there for my own safety.
IF YOU REQUEST NO ESCORT
, then I have to know the address of shooting and I will call someone to let them know where I am once I arrive at the shoot. It's just a safety issue for me, so I hope you understand. It's not that I don't trust you, but I always want to be safe.
I have 10 assorted tattoos all over my body and I wear either contacts or glasses, depending on the look. I can change my looks depending on your artistic need, so let me know what you want and I can try my best to accommodate you! I no longer have any piercings except for my ears. I am a self mutilator (please, no sympathy) and I do have numerous scars up and down my arms and legs that I usually cover up with makeup, if needed. I know I don't have the perfect body, but perfection is boring anyway, so strive for the unconventional.
MY MAKEUP/HAIR/WARDROBE EXPERIENCE
I have interned (aka, non-credited, unpaid) on several films in Hawaii and Connecticut. Some of the bigger ones include:
The Princess Kaui'lani project, starring Barry Pepper
Revolutionary Road, starring Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
Pistol Whipped, starring Steven Seagal
I have NOT worked with any of the big names alone, but simply on sets that they starred in. The only movie I worked the full movie was Pistol Whipped - the other two were just a few days here and there, when they needed extra help on set. I have also done a few non-major independent films out in Hawaii, none of which are of any significant note, but I can provide names and references, if you wish.
I have done MUA work in Hawaii, and I am proficient in airbrushing (although my airbrush has recently bit the dust, so I am saving up for my next brush). My specialty is special effects - I love creating gore and blood. I do MUA for most independent films that I work on, and for quite a few photo shoots. I worked in a hair salon, as an assistant (no, not receptionist) but am no means qualified to do amazing things to hair. I can do basics, but that is about it. For wardrobe, I went to school for fashion and graduated May 2007. I worked in a costume shop on Hawaii temporarily, but quit that for a better paid, better position job. I worked mainly in wardrobe on the set of Pistol Whipped.
Please contact me for credits or references. I can provide both.
