Currently preforming a massive overhaul of all my sites and accounts over the next few months!
Current Booking Availability
I have a part-time job which limits my time during the work week
I can shoot:
- Free All Day Thursday
- After 5pm
- After 2pm Sat
- Free All Day
Sundays tend to be my day off but I can shoot, just ask me!
Be prepared for my slightly jumbled thought process! The typing below is a slightly exaggerated version of my true self, you may encounter a quieter, shyer girl upon first meeting. Not to be alarmed, this is just a clever ruse until I see that you are also an amazing person like myself!

Need to Know: Artist going to university majoring in fine arts.
I am easy to work with, can provide wardrobe, most makeup styles and simple hair, and can supply ideas for shooting.
Shooting since October 2010, I am experienced with vintage, fashion/editorial, beauty, boudoir/lingerie, art nude, and experimental photography and can also sit for painters/art classes.
I am currently an art class model for Visarts center, Montgomery College, and Northern Virginia Community College - Alexandria Campus.
Five years experience in acting courses, two years of formal dance instruction (tap and ballet), four years of choir courses (though mostly self taught and disciplined), and multiple years of art courses.
My Rates: I frequently shoot TF that will improve my portfolio.
If I reply to your CC, I am going by what you put as compensation.
Hourly rate varies based on shoot theme/intention/nudity level/etc.
Half Day Rate:(assuming 4 hours, excluding travel, and involving art nudes) $200
Full Day Rate:(assuming anywhere between 5-8 hours, excluding travel, and involving art nudes) $500
"Nude in Nature" shoots are 99% of the time paid only, I have plenty of this in my portfolio already.
I charge an extra fee for video, please ask for details.
I currently am not traveling outside of the DMV area.
My Limits (oh dear god, not the limits! ):
No spread shots without artistic intent, no sacrilegious themes (ie. no slutty nun, just not my cup of tea), and no pornography (not allowed on this site anyway).
And finally, I bruise easily. Please ask before touching the model.
What I Need More of in my Portfolio: Steampunk / Day of the Dead / Gothic & EGL / "Shadow Play" / Paint Splatter / Dark "Traveling" Model
Windowsill and Flowers / Dark Fantasy
"GaGa" / "Demented Doll" / "Twisted Editorial" / Pinup, pinup, and more pinup
Fish eye lens shoots / "Grown Up Toddlers and Tiaras" / "Scene/Obscene"
"Alt" Ideas (not mainstream fashion/commercial) "Fast Food Room" (ask for details)
Body Modifications: Tattoos: left inner ankle, inner right wrist, and right ribcage covered by my braline. I do not have any piercings at all (I know, so lame!) but I can wear clip on earrings if the shoot calls for it provided I am able to acquire them.
Please Note When Booking: I prefer to book via this site or my modeling email and would like if the majority of the shoot details can be agreed upon within 5-10 messages.
I prefer not to schedule preshoot meetings, as there is a tendency to not shoot until months later or not at all. If it is an absolute requirement, I will try to accomodate. I talk with my hands a lot so no expensive/breakable/spillable objects in my path, please!
Explanation of Artist Name: It's a high school nickname a friend gave me, as I reminded him of the rare hot pink wildflower. This reflects what makes my art (modeling being an extension of my art), style, and personality unique.
The phonetic pronounciation is nah/deh/sh/ko ya/mat/oh.
Or you can use my legal name, but to know that you'd have to book me.
Fun Extra Stuff:
I also am available for work as a visual artist, please contact me about any commissioned work.
My art business, Nadeshiko Yamato Artistry, LLC is a registered business in the state of Virginia.
I have basic language skills in Japanese (very basic "traveler's" Japanese XD) and can read a fair amount of French and can speak a little.
I am in Jason McNeil's Photobook "Stripped Dreams"
I am on the back cover of Digital Infusion Magazine issue #5
I am also in and on the cover of a photobook
"Visions: The Works of M. Anderson" by Matt Anderson (DVJPhoto/nitephotography)
