Hello! I am soooo elated that you're here
Please be sure to read everything below before you get in contact with me. Thanks!

I'm a professional freelance model who is never satisfied or content with where my modeling is. I began modeling in 2010. I'm always pushing myself to be better! I have gained an incredible amount of experience and my learning capacity is perpetual, which means that I won't stop refining my craft. I desire to execute out of the box, mindblowing, emotion gripping, and heart caressing work, which in return, enhances and elevates my modeling; I don't fit into the mediocre mold and I don't want my modeling to either.
Modeling is a hobby for me, however, I treat it just like my full time job. It's a form of therapy for me. It's a way for me to express what a dictionary can't transcribe. I'm not a fan of cliche' and I will not model inappropriate concepts or shoot nudes.
If you are looking for a model to bring your vision to life, then I am her. I am a genuinely sweet and laid back lady who loves meeting and working with "professional" photographers who are seasoned and properly trained.
I am selective about who I do TF shoots with at the moment. I have a full time job, 8-5. So, my time is very precious to me. My ideal photographer is very keen to high fashion, artistic, avante garde photography. I only do work that I believe will help enhance my portfolio. However, I encourage people to shoot me a message. It doesn't hurt to inquire. If I do turn you down it is probably because I do not like your work or your idea, possibly both. I usually reserve TF shoots for people in my area but rates are negotiable, especially if you’re an AMAZING photographer. If you don’t live near me, I consider a number of things for compensation: money, plane tickets, gas money, etc... *
I take what I do seriously and I expect the same from photographers. The key to this is reciprocation. I'm very punctual. I'm not the type of model to bail on a shoot without any notice. If I'm not able to do the shoot, then the photographer will know way before the scheduled shoot. I would appreciate the same common courtesy as the above scenario from photographers. I do understand that things come up but bailing in advance and the day of are totally different. Depending on how you cancel or bail determines how I will deal with you... or not in future instances.
To elaborate more on what I briefly stated above, I ONLY desire to work with seasoned, professional photographers who understand artistry and who have a true artistic vision. I will determine whether or not you qualify by your body of work, it will speak for itself.
My purpose for modeling is to create art. I respect a photographer's time and vision. And, if you are a photographer with the same mindset, then I'm all for a collaboration. Professionalism is key with me and with that, we can unlock some very interesting doors.
PIERCINGS & TATTOOS
I do not have any tattoos. The only body parts I have pierced are my ears.
SKIN & NAILS
My skin is clear. I exfoliate and moisturize. My nails are clean, natural and trimmed.
