About Me


I approach everything in a professional manner including modeling.  I model because I want to and only take assignments that I feel I will enjoy doing. So, you should rest assured that if I schedule a shoot with you I'm doing it because I genuinely want to participate in the shoot and achieve the best possible images whether monetary compensation is involved or not.  In addition to modeling, I  teach and perform for Host of Sparrows Aerial Dance and Circus Arts. I am a retired acrobatic pole dancer with 5 years of professional experience. I was a child runway model and have picked up various other types of modeling in more recent years. I have done maternity modeling but am NOT currently expecting. I try to be versatile in my look and am always seeking opportunities to branch out. I am also a big fan of conceptual photography. I am looking to work with people to create professional photos for publication submission. I look forward to expanding my portfolio and creating compelling imagery in the future...

NOTE::***Non-Contortion Shoots: If we are scheduled for a shoot that does not specifically involve contortion (extreme backbends)  Do NOT ask me to perform contortion!

Also, please note if we are scheduled for a contortion shoot I will need on location warm up time preferably half an hour prior to shooting. Thanks.

I will NOT work with you at all if:

- I feel uncomfortable with you and your general attitude towards me
- Your profile is new and you have no references
- Your location is not reputable or is in a "Bad" part of town
- You require me to email you unprofessional nude photos

If you tag my profile saying you want to work with me I will respond to you with the assumption that you are offering some form of compensation. If you aren't then please don't tag my profile in this manner. Thanks.

BTW, I never look at my friend requests.

If you would like to work with me you need to know the FAQ's:

1. Will you do TFP shoots?

Types of TF shoots I do:

-Trade for out of town accomodations

-Trade for publication credit or tear sheets.

-Trade for wardrobe.

-Trade for non-nude images with select local photographers

2. Will you shoot nudes?

There are nudes in my portfolio  but I have retired from shooting nudes.

3. Will you shoot fetish?

Fetish fashion style photos, yes. However, I will not shoot bondage or genki.

4. Will you shoot on location?


5. Do you have any visible stretch marks from your pregnancy?


6. Do you have any tattoos, scars, piercings, enhancements, or modifications?

Tattoos- I have a small one on my foot and the rest are on my  back.

Piercings- I only have piercings in my ears (non-removable)

Scars-  Left elbow 3'' long surgical scar and bikini line 6'' long C-section scar 

I have a natural bust, clear skin and do not/will not tan. I have stopped dyeing my hair. I'm letting it grow out in it's natural color.

I wear hearing aids in both ears. These can be removed for shoots but the photographer should be aware that it can present difficulty in comprehending direction.

7. For underwater shoots, how long can you hold your breathe and how deep can you dive?

If not already fatigued from previous dive attempts  during a shoot I can hold my breath for one minute, occasionally longer on a good day.

I can not to  dive any  deeper than 11 ft due to eustachian tube pressure equalization issues.

Please feel free to contact me with any ideas and assignment offers you may have.

Thank You!
