About Me

Hello All! ^_^

About me:
I am a funny, klutzy, flirty, provocative,  intelligent, sarcastic, quick tempered, nit-picking perfectionist who loves loving, dedication, book reading, brownie baking, writing, picture taking, photo editing and long walks on the beach. Haha.

About my photography:
Bright, bold with subtle sexiness. I most enjoy working with gowns or swimsuits in outdoor locations, but am willing to shoot others ideas IF I like the idea as well, and IF I am allowed to have creative input. Of course, studio work is always a possibility; just not my preference.  I have been into photography since I was in middle school when that awesome instant  sticky film came out! Haha. Does anyone else know what I am talking about? Needless to say… I’ve come a long way from “sticky film” and have blossomed  into a more mature and focused photographer. I have been seriously shooting with a DSLR since 2005 and have collaborated with many great models, photographers, business owners and more.

With that said…  here are some things that you need to know about me if you are interested in booking a shoot.


Do you shoot TF**?
    Okay…so here is the deal. I have been through the TF highs and lows. I have completely sworn them off and then re-instated them and then re-sworn them off. 

As of right now...
Sometimes  will solicit a model to work on a TF basis, however, that happens rarely and I am highly selective. When I do solicit a model she is usually standard runway measurements and is experienced.  If I do ask to shoot with you on a TF basis I will allow you to see your RAW images within three days of the shoot and will allow you to choose at least 2 images to be edited along with the images that I already intend to edit.

What will I do?
    I will shoot my very own version of TFCD IF I HAVE THE TIME and I like your look. (Time is very precious to me and I am fairly limited by a fulltime 9-5, a relationship and a lot of family and friends!) Please do not take offense if I do not agree to shoot you TF; you might just not be what I am looking for... this does not mean that I find you to be unattractive or not a great model!!!! For the most part I have a very specific style of model that I adhere to.

I will do your shoot for free with the exception of a make-up artist (which you must pay for if you want make-up and hair to be provided). From that shoot I will pull no less than  five shots and no more than fifteen to be edited and I will edit them. I will give you two of the final images by my choice and you will have the chance to purchase the rest. I will only charge $15 per image and will offer the shots at a 50% discount if you choose to buy them all. If you need any further clarification please just send me a message.

Wow! You sound really busy! Is there anything I can do to better my chances of working with you around your busy schedule?
YES! Now that is a perfect question! ^_^ So, unlike a lot of the photographers on this website I can be very difficult to get in touch with and I can also be hard to book a shoot with.  I came up with what I think is a great, but stressful, solution to my time problem.

I will now be hosting a “shoot-out day” 4-5 times a year. Each of these days will be pre-determined at least a month in advanced and will have a theme. There will only be room for  5-10 models PER date!!!!  So if you are interested please contact me quickly. The themes are centered around the commercial areas of photography that I would like to pursue. More than likely your images will be viewed by many  clothing designers and companies since that is the direction in which I am moving as a photographer. For each shoot I intend to have a product for each model to showcase… whether it be shoes, jewelry, clothing or accessories of some sort. In some cases your images might even be published or used in advertisement. If chosen to work with me on a shoot-out day you will be allowed to view all of the RAW images and to choose three images to be edited as well as receive all of the other images of yourself that were edited. Much more clarification will be given upon request/stated interest.
Questions to answer when contacting Sandra for a shoot:

1.    What type of shots are you interested in collaborating on?
2.    Are you comfortable shooting implied shots?
3.    Would you be interested in working with body paint/extensive make-up?
4.    Full birth date.
5.    What type of shots are you not interested in shooting?
6.    Are you willing to pose tastefully with other models?
7.    Are you willing to pay my choice of MUA/Hairstylist?
8.    Describe what you try to portray through your modeling in ONE word.
9.    Name a song that you would like to have playing while modeling.
10.    Do you have any connections to companies that might want to use the images we capture?

I have 4 simple rules:

1. No one edits my images but me. Period. End of sentence. This is not negotiable.

2. You stand my shoot up without damn good reason… you have just lost the option to shoot with me.

3. No whining. (Yes, I know the water is cold. Guess what? I’m standing right beside you in it too!)

4. I expect you to honor the location of my shoots as private information.

I look forward to meeting and working with as many great minds as I can find time for! ^_^
