Hi, I'm Ayla. I'm glad you've shown interest in my portfolio! Modeling brings me confidence and joy. I've done a few small photoshoots and runway shows, however I do not pursue modeling professionally.
I currently work in a salon as a full-time hairstylist and make-up artist. Modeling is a hobby for me, working in a salon is how I make money $$!!! My career takes priority over modeling, therefore, my work schedule is hectic and traveling IS an issue:
I DO NOT travel outside of the San Jose/Santa Clara area for photoshoots!!
Sundays and Mondays work best with my availability.
I am able to do my own hair and make-up for shoots, but am also interested in showcasing the work of other's. I have NO plans in becoming a hairstylist or make-up artist for photoshoots. I work in-salon, so please, don't ask.
For my safety, I always have a friend or family member accompany me to photoshoots. I DO NOT work with photographers who don't have already have networks, friends or photos. I expect professionalism at all times. I'm looking to speak with local photographers and clothing designers that are building their portfolios.
I have 7 earrings and 4 tattoos.
Tattoo #1 - Back of neck: 3 Stars, Rainbow, & Aries symbol.
Tattoo #2 - Inner left foot: Japanese symbol for Spirit/Soul
Tattoo #3 - Inner left wrist: Side view of Monarch Butterfly
Tattoo #4 - Inner right wrist: Side view of Monarch Butterfly
My style is classic beauty, but with a powerful edge. My NATURAL red hair, hazel eyes and pale skin set me apart. However, I pride myself in being a style chameleon.
Please, contact me if you're interested in working with me.
