CURRENTLY UPDATING PORTFOLIO!
My priority right now is to work with others from ALL aspects of photoshoots for portfolio development... such as MUA's, hairstylists, clothing designers/wardrobe stylists, etc. With the right mixture of people, a great idea can become an extrordinary photo. Every one has something to add to the recipe. Let's start cooking!
IF YOU CONTACT ME TO TFP/TFCD, UNIQUE CONCEPTS WILL BE FIRST PRIORITY.
I DON'T WANT JUST A PHOTOGRAPHER.. I WANT AN ARTIST. I WANT SOMEONE TO COLLABORATE ON EVERY DETAIL OF THE IMAGES WE MAY PRODUCE. LET'S INSPIRE EACH OTHER!!
**Phone number will be given upon request when discussing basics of the shoot.
My whole life I've watched people come from nothing and make themselves someone to be remembered. That's what I want to do. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. No one chases my goals for me. The things I achieve are undoubtedly successful because I choose to make it that way. Not to say that I've done anything completely on my own, because no one does anything completely on their own. But I can promise you no one is working as hard for me as I do for myself. I don't want money, I don't want fame. Okay, I take that back, I DO want money, but more than anything, I just want to inspire others to chase their dreams & know that nothing is impossible. And in the meantime, I want to be the subject of as many creative projects as possible. I am very openminded to all areas of modeling, besides those images that are purely for erotic pleasure. It seems as if every photographer wants me to get naked. Being an artist, I see beauty in the human form, the female form especially. However, nude is not really my interest. Don't get me wrong, it's totally empowering and liberating to be secure and confident in the buff and create some awesome photos in the process. But it just isn't my current interest or priority. If I want to shoot nude, I will let YOU know. No offense intended. Some implied nudes are considered (considered, not neccessarily agreed upon) but only those that are tasteful. I feel that so much more can be done on the model's side of the lense, that does NOT require getting naked.
I'm open to TFP/TFCD, as long as I'm not too busy. If you want to TF, please approach with a concept in mind or see my "lists" to see if there's something you'd be interested in collaborating on. If YOU are contacting ME to shoot, and I have to travel a significant distance, compensation will surely help the chances of getting me there. (I work full-time & part-time. TIME IS $$$) I do not intend to be overly picky about who I choose to work with because there are so many talented people that I would be cheating myself by not taking most opportunities I'm given. I do NOT limit myself. If you throw it at me, I can catch it. Believe that.
Aside from all the business aspects... personally, I am a woman who is full of life, very humorous, and get along with anyone. I once was just a tomboy, barefoot and wild. Now I am older and embracing everything I have become and everything God intended me to be. And even as that tomboy, I dreamed of modeling. What a strange combination huh? That's who I am. I'm not afraid to get dirty and not so ladylike that I won't burp in front of you. I am passionate about life & all the crazy beauty in it. I do not think I'm above anyone. In fact, I'm only human and well aware of it. So please remember that about yourself.
Besides modeling, in my free time or just when I feel the need for escape, I like to write poetry. I wrote my first poem in 5th grade as an assignment, and since have written poems as a hobby and as therapy. I have never been the one who has a hard time explaining how I feel. I believe that one of my greatest gifts is being capable of putting into words my emotions, my thoughts, my dreams, my disappointments. Now I am grabbing another challenge by the horns by expressing all the things that are ME through modeling. Hope you like what you see!
TO-DO CONCEPTS & THEMES (For select TFP/CD):
*The sexy-without-trying-to-be Housewife* (ironing/cooking/cleaning, etc.)
*Billiards* (pool table/bar, etc.)
*Doll in the Package* (Need a Me-sized box that resembles the packaging of a Barbie doll- REALLY WANT TO DO THIS ONE!)
*Bodypaint* (I'm open to all different styles)
*7 Deadly Sins* (Vanity, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed, Envy Wrath & Lust. This would be an ongoing project as I couldn't possibly do each of these 7 themes total justice in just one shoot!! If you're a photographer who would like to collaborate with me on 1 or more of these themes, please contact me... you do NOT have to commit to all 7!)
*Hitchhiker* (I have the perfect location already picked out!)
*Couples Shoot* (Either with another female model, or my boyfriend as the male model. I'm not particularly interested in working with any male models as I know that I can achieve photos worthy of my portfolio with my own boyfriend. He's nice to look at, don't worry.)
*Mythical/Fantasy* (Such as a fairy, mermaid, vampire, etc.)
*Rainy Day Shoot* (Pretty self-explanatory.. I want to model during a downpour!)
*Music* (With props of course! Guitar, drums, microphone, boombox, etc.)
*Birthday Party* (With, or without other models ina decorated setting... This could really be fun with a group!)
-These are off the top of my head (which is often a jumbled, tangled mess of ideas), but I have a list written in a notebook somewhere. Will update ASAP.
Thanks for reading & taking your time to get to know a little about me. Now, quit wasting time & shoot me an idea or message & introduce yourself!!
