I'm a red-blooded, All-natural, anything but ordinary, All-American Girl!! I am not your typical blonde, far from it; I am educated, intelligent, creative, spunky, and adventurous! ....If my life to this point had a theme song, it would probably have to be "Rock my World (lil Country girl) by Brooks & Dunn!!!!
It seems this is a growing issue, so I will give my 2 cents:
**Warning: Its about to get real!! Turn back now, if you can't handle the truth!**
-1.) If YOU ARE GETTING PAID, its NOT TFP/CD because YOU ARE GETTING PAID! Do NOT ask me to work for free while you are getting paid, thatâs not only insulting, itâs greedy, and cheep! So if you are writing a book, teaching a workshop/class, making a calendar, working for a paying client of any kind, shooting photography to submit as "stock" or anything else you are or will be paid for, please do not send me a message to shoot TFp/cd and ask me to help you pay your bills when you care nothing about mine!!! (The exception is "stock" and I want a contingency agreement, if OUR pictures are purchased, we both make money!!) I know camera equipment and lights are expensive, but so is my extensive wardrobe, accessories, makeup, etc., not to mention the time it has taken to collect all these items! We are all in this industry to go somewhere, to reach a goal, to accomplish something, and while having great pictures is a perk, itâs not my ultimate goal; I want to make a career of it!!
I do not like people who think their time is worth ($) more than mine. I work 55+ hours a week, aside from modeling, so my time is just as valuable to me as yours is to you!
2.) Now if you are a professional photographer, MUA/stylist, model, etc. and you want to get creative and collaborate on a TFP/CD shoot just to update our portfolios, send me a message (see below for requested info). ***I love shooting, thats why I model!*** I love working on creative ideas, trying new things, and getting great shots!
On the flip side, photographers please do NOT contact me about shooting, and then send me your rates! That is also insulting, and way to cocky for my taste no matter how good your mom told you that you are. If I wanted to pay you for a shoot, I would have contacted you when I needed to build my portfolio.
**PLEASE NOTE:** I am one of the absolute nicest people, and one of the easiest going, professional models you will work with(please ask ANYONE I have worked with), so please do not let the above ranting deter you from contacting me because I am not at all a "diva" or anything close, but enough is enough, and thats all I could take....I can imagine if you have continued to read to this point, none of the above applies to you, so please continue to enjoy my page and disregard the above rantings.
Important information if you want to work with me:
I have been modeling for a total of about three years. I am very ready to get my modeling career on the road!! I have a very natural, fresh look and a deep passion that shows through in all of my pictures
I am very energetic, always happy, easily excitable, very animated, creative, resourceful, opinionated (what female isn't), totally driven and completed motivated to succeed in this industry, oodles of fun to shoot with, BUT above all I am very professional (and expect professionalism from others).
I'm very interested in doing all kinds of print work, glamour, lingerie, swimsuit, fashion, and will do implied nude depending on assignment (and photographer; if you are creepy, or make me uncomfortable I will not even do that) and commerical work. I would love to do runway, as long as height is not an issue.
My ultimate goal is to be a print/catalog model for any clothing, lingerie, swimsuit, and/or costume companies.
I am not with an agency (any more), but would entertain the idea again.
If you are interested in setting up a shoot, please message me. I am ALWAYS interested in working with EXPERIENCED, FUN, CREATIVE, AND PROFESSIONAL people, photographers, other models, stylists, and MUAs..especially MUAs and stylists. When emailing, please give as much information as possible, shoot ideas, theme, location, whether paid, travel reimbursement, or TFCD/TFP, etc. If local, I would love to meet prior to shoot, to ease the mood and to create a plan of action (which I know we are all busy, so this is not a requirement). If not local, I would at least like to have a phone conversation to go over all of the specifics. ***Oh and I will always bring an escort to at least the first couple of shoots with a new photographer, but do not worry, I would never bring a person that would in any way hinder the shoot. Any good photographer knows that a model will produce much better pictures if she is comfortable. If you see my pictures, all shoots on this page were shot in the presence of an escort, so you can see it has not been an issue.
If you do want to shoot TFp/cd, please have an idea in mind, I have toooooo much stuff to say "whatever you want to shoot." I have created a list of "ideas I would like to explore" (not duplicate), so please look at them and see if there is anything you would also like to work from. Lastly (for now), if you are out of town and want to shoot TFp/cd at your location, please be prepared to pay for my travel expenses or meet me half way. My SS is awesome; however, being a V8 coupled with my lead foot, she gets terrible gas mileage, and I have spent sooooo much money traveling around the state for shoots. I just can't shoulder all the cost anymore. (I know this paragraph keeps getting longer and longer, but "you live and learn" so as things happen, I learn, and I will continue to do my best to be up front with my expectations as a professional model and to avoid uncomfortable situations.)
---*****I reserve the right to request a copyright release from any and all photo shoots (unless you are paying me, and then we can discuss rights prior to shooting)!!!****----
Random information that may or may not be important to shoot with me:
I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, and I absolutely love it here. I also LOVE to travel!! I love American Muscle cars, football, the beach and anything out doors. I love to go hiking, especially in Hawaii. I also love to go biking, fishing, boating, wakeboarding, 4-wheeling, etc. MY GOAL OF THE SUMMER IS TO LEARN HOW TO SURF! Most of all, I love to GET GREASY working on MY 2000 SS CAMARO (Die hard Chevy Girl), and playing football on the beach. I am a true FLORIDA GATOR FAN!! I love to watch college football and UFC (and I will admit to being a Law & Order/CSI junkie). I grew up playing fast-pitch softball, soccer, and cheerleading. In short, I am "one of the guys" but when I need to be, I can still be the "girlie-girl."
I recently graduated pre-law from the University of North Florida with my Bachelorsâ Degree in Political Science, minor in Psychology. I hope to start law school at Florida Coastal Law School in the fall 2009.
Now, that school is done for a little while, its time to focus on me. I had to stop my modeling career, before it really got started, because I was going to school full time and working full time (and 2 part time jobs). This is something I have always wanted to do, so now its time to make it happen.
I have chosen this road, and I can't wait to see where it goes!!!
