Note to all-
While I enjoy modeling, I have become jaded about the level of unprofessionalism on ModelMayhem. Please understand that I only model for select assignments anymore: the photographer must have a clear handling of his craft and present a concept of originality and uniqueness to me.

Rachel Lauren-708327 (X2) -"When I first worked with Christen she did not have much experience working with photographers, but she was a natural in front of the camera, constantly twisting and pulling her body into the most interesting poses. She would do anything in order to get the perfect shot. Her work as a model has grown throughout the past few months and I am very impressed by the work she has done with other photographers (along with the great images I got whilst working with her). She is very focused on what she does, but at the same time is casual and easy to talk to during the shoot- something I personally enjoyed. I had a great time working with her, and we are working together again very soon with one of her conceptual ideas. I am very excited!"
Steve Bradley-783787- "Working with Christen was a truly enjoyable experience. She is very relaxed and natural in front of the camera. She had done only one photoshoot before working with me, but she needed very little direction. She moves seamlessly one one pose the next, and all I had to do was sit back and shoot. Christen is also very dedicated and professional, and it shows in her positive attitude and willingness to try original themes and ideas. Our shoot had her hiking uphill, walking through mud, dealing with mosquitoes, and all in the heat of July. She remained enthusiastic and never once complained. In fact, even in those conditions, it was clear that she was enjoying herself. Christen has everything a photographer could want in a model. She's on time, professional, very dedicated, and she really loves to model. I definitely recommend her, and would love to work with her again."

LOOX-588939 I don't think I could ask for much more than Christen brings to a project. I had the opportunity to work with her over the summer and found her passionate, focused and enthusiastic about her work, and at the same time, very easy going, light-hearted and personable. Her emotional acuity, body awareness and artistic instincts are brilliant and sound, evolving almost before the eye.

Big Gig: 656416/704050- "A portrait photographer is useless without a subject and a muse, and thankfully for us, we have had the honor of working with Christen who is both a muse and an amazing subject. She is extremely talented, sweet, genuine and passionate about what she does and she gave us 100% in extreme weather conditions that even Batman would think twice about being out in.
Her communication is excellent, her skill level is high and she is just a delight to get to know and work with. We are blessed for having the chance to get to work with her and hope to work with her again in the future. "
