***NO DRIVE BY FRIEND REQUESTS***
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and look at my portfolio. I have worked hard on it. I am thankful to all the photographers and models who have worked alongside me over the years. Please check out their profiles below.
I'm going to start out with reality. I am a mother of two beautiful little girls, and I work overnights Thursday-Sunday. My availability is very limited, and if you are going to want to work together, I need some time to get shifts covered, or a babysitter lined up. I am only doing select TF work with certain photographers (you know who you are).
I charge $65.00 flat booking fee to start. This isn't for me. It's to cover my babysitting costs. From there, depending on the project we are working on, will determine my rates. Nudes are 75.00/hr with a minimum of 2 hours. Half day and full day discount rates available. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE THESE IMAGES TO BE CREDITED TO ANYTHING OTHER THAN CRYSTELLE MAREE. IF YOU CREDIT AN 18+ IMAGE TO MY REAL NAME I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN WITH AN ARMY OF RABID FERRETS ARMED WITH TOENAIL CLIPPERS.
While i'm on the topic of nudes, I will be the first to let you know that you will have to focus some time on photoshopping my stomach. I am 120 pounds, but took a NASTY beating during my two pregnancies. I have type I diabetes and had to have two c-sections to get an 8 pound, and almost 9 pound baby out. Although I am back down to my pre-pregnancy weight, I have some skin that is...well...still there. I am super self aware of this, and as much as I wish I had a flat stomach, I wouldn't change having my kids for anything. If you want to complain about it, you can buy my tummy tuck. JUST SAYIN.........
Onward and Forward.
As I said before, I am doing limited TF work. I provide my own transportation to photoshoots, and my husband WILL come along if we haven't shot before. This is to make sure that I am safe and my kids have a mom around for a long time.
I also won't answer to castings such as:
I'm a new photographer and....
Hey! So we're re-creating a murder scene photo shoot. Must be willing to be tied up with weapons all around, blood everywhere, NO escorts can come, and I will provide transportation.
Enough said. I don't feel like dying today.
I also won't want to work with you if you look like all your photos were shot with the oldest version of the Iphone in a hotel somewhere. I'm sorry, but creepy much? I'm PAYING...Well actually you are....for my kids to go to a babysitter on these days. I need something that is going to rock my portfolio, and yours too. Nuh uh. You gotta have some massive eye catching awesomeness for me to hand my kids over for a full day.
Now that I sound all scary and uptight...
I am the most chill person you can work with. I am SUPER friendly, SUPER easygoing, and Overall, 100% awesome possum if you want me to be frank. I have the biggest heart, and the biggest goofy personality. But when it comes down to work...I work it. Just please no rattlesnakes. True story...there was a summer of shoots where we couldn't seem to get away from them! I have a degree in dance (ballet was my strong point) but have stopped dancing professionally since 2008 (I broke my foot and that was that). I can do beautiful dance poses still, but don't ask me to do a grand jete across the floor anymore. My husband and I have done photography (weddings included) and most of the time, he gets promoted to "reflector boy" during the day. He is quiet on photo shoots and does not get in the way, and has been respectful to other models and photographers on the job. Again, if he cannot come, and we have not worked together (or I don't feel comfortable with you yet) it's a deal breaker.
You have absolutely 100% permission to contact other models and photographers I have worked with for a reference. And models, you can always contact me as well.
I mainly just want to collaborate and do some amazing art. That's it. So lets start getting some ideas together, and go from there. Can't wait to work with you. It's gonna be a blast!
