and that voice will be silenced"- Vincent Van Gogh

"A model has to create moods, You have to be careful not to get stuck in a mood
- emotions have trends just like fashion...I become whatever your eye wants to see. It's my job" - Gia Marie
"The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe." - Deepak Chopra

Is the age listed on your profile accurate?
My modeling profile doubles as my acting profile. The age on my profile accurately reflects the average age I portray for acting assignments. I have paid acting experience, and can easily play any role within the twenties age range, and even early to mid thirties if the role calls for it.
This was me at 9 1/2 months pregnant. I have two beautiful boys.

5/20/06 Imagography by DRL - I have yet to meet another photographer with the same artistic vision and level of talent as Doug. His work speaks volumes to me and on many personal levels. He creates his images with care and mastery, and as a result, they are created not just simply for the sake of existing, but are examples of a higher level of cognizance and thinking for the rest of us to behold in all of their artistic splendor.
04/22/06 Ruben Sanchez - Mr Sanchez' talents are far-reaching, he has the ability to capture a subject in the best possible light (both literally and figuratively). I can't wait to work with him again. Thanks so much, Ruben! I really enjoyed meeting and working with you.

2/23/06 LeFay Photography - Sometimes fate steps in and opens doors to new opportunities we might not otherwise have. This was certainly the case in my shoot with LeFay Photography. I filled in for a model whose physical attributes are about as opposite from mine as can be, but he pulled the shoot off beautifully. Michael Grider was amazing to work with, a consummate professional, and he managed to capture some breathtaking photos while displaying incredible flexibility and versatility of ideas.

01/11/06 BobbyG Photo, bobbygphoto.com (OMP# 102913) - Bobby excels at whatever he does, whether it's his role as a photographer, singer, businessman, or just the next big project he takes on. Bobby kept me laughing through the entire shoot. His personality and talent really comes through in his work, and all of this is besides the absolutely incredible images he creates. Plus, he's fast: I received my first set of processed preview images by the next morning. Thanks again, Bobby, for a GREAT shoot!! If you book a session with him, please, please mention me.
12/30/05 Richard Priest (OMP# 128590) - What a great way to end the year! Models, don't be intimidated by the name of the "abandoned well site" location, it's a great place to shoot and Mr. Priest is always the perfect gentleman. Thanks again for a great shoot, Richard!
11/19-11/20/05 Texas Photo Forum Lighting Workshop with host Scott Watters (OMP# 114955) as MUA - I'd like to say a big "Thank you" to all the workshop attendees, but especially to Scott Watters for putting this all together. This was the most organized and well planned workshop that I've ever had the honor of being present at, and that's no easy feat!
11/10/05 Darryl Briggs of darrylbriggs.com (OMP# 2194) - The shoot was awesome! I only wish I could rate his work higher than OUTSTANDING. He's not what everyone says he is - he's even BETTER. Highly recommended!
11/11/05 Fantasia Images (OMP# 50772) - Ricardo is a fascinating photographer and individual. Highly respectful of a model's limits and personal space, he is as gifted with his post-processing as he is with his photography. Models, book your session TODAY!
11/25/05 - RJ Warren Photography (OMP # 2729) - Bob's experience really comes through in his work. We created some outstanding images that I was proud to share.
11/25/05 Jerry Brown (OMP # 24551) - I was honored to have not just one, but two simply outstanding photographers present at this shoot. Jerry was a joy to work with, and integrated seamlessly with Bob's style of shooting. The two pros worked together well.
11/15/05 A Kaye Photo, theartofwomen.com (OMP # 4935) - A Kaye is an incredibly talented, passionate photographer with a sharp eye for detail - he knows exactly what he's looking for when he sees it. A very capable artist, he brings the best out in you.
