About Me

Please do not message me on MM, rather e-mail directly to [email protected] 

I am available for remote shoots and have a very workable setup for this. Please email me to discuss the possibilities.
If you have a socially distanced outdoors shoot in mind, let's talk!
I not booking in person studio shoots at this time.

Artists, I am one of the admins for the DC Art Model Collective.
I am fully set up for online drawing sessions of any size, and reference photo-shoots per your specific needs.


None because of Covid  sad

Why do I Model?

I love everything about the creative process. I model to be part of the process. Photography and modeling are how I express, create, and connect with other people. 

I am available for:

-Photography modeling :
          Private bookings, workshops, classes, small groups/rate shares, on location or studio, personal projects, publication work, stock imagery, reference or test photos for other projects, ect. 
Reflecting my heavy fine art experience, my style of posing encompasses a range from expressive and energetic to graceful and reflective. I can speed up or slow down a flow of poses, adapting to your shooting style and needs.

-Traditional art (life modeling):
        I offer dynamic, expressive gestures as well graceful sustained poses. I enjoy working with artists both in the classroom and in private sessions. I'm comfortable posing for a group of any size and in public demos. My experience in working for most of the art schools in the greater DC community has included posing for drawing, painting, and sculpture classes. I am sensitive to the unique needs of a traditional artist for reference photos and offer that as a separate service from my regular photo-modeling.

-Video projects, performance art, road trips, as a general shoot assistant, as a model coach, as any form of creative collaborator.

-I have references for all of the above.
- My rates are:
$100 for 1 hour -  $350 for 4 hours 
I offer 'discounted rates' only when booking at preferred studios either locally or when visiting another city. Locally, this studio is StudioArto in Rockville. Currently, the 'discounted rate' is $100 for each hour, including studio time, if paid in advance.

I request a booking fee of a single hour towards the total amount. This booking fee will be non refundable, but transferable to another booking if you need to cancel outside of a 48 hour window to the time scheduled for our shoot. It will be non refundable and non transferable if within a 48 hour window of our shoot.

If you wish to inquire about a trade/barter arrangement, I am most interested in:
- studio time to use for myself or access to space I can use for further bookings
-  Fuji lenses
- Impossible project film
- If we have worked together before, I occasionally trade for:  prints, artwork, or the rights to sell prints.

What to Expect

- I have been active in the DC metro area as a fine art and figurative model since 2009 and made the dive into full time in 2012. I enjoy my work as a model in any form. My range encompasses figurative art, fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and event work.

- I have two small, very easy to hide, tattoos. My hair is long and does not change color or length. My skin tone is fair with more olive tones when tanned.

- I am willing to get cold, wet, and dirty: under safe circumstances to better bring to life your concept or project.  I have done so many times and will communicate clearly about any safety concerns prior to finalizing a booking.

- I work well with photographers of all levels of experience. I'm always open to ideas and experiments. I'm also happy to lend any assistance I may from my own experiences as a photographer to better help you with your vision. 

- If you intend your project to be erotic or fetish in context, we need to discuss this ahead of time. If I am unexpectedly asked to do something mid-shoot that I am not comfortable doing, then the shoot will be over.  I will discuss my specific limits prior to finalizing a booking.

The NO list:   I don't pose in the "spread shots" style. No bondage or restraints. Any concept that involves the photographer touching me in any way is a no-go. I don't 'pose with the photographer.' Nor will I allow sexual props, toys, or paraphernalia on shoot set/location.

"Blue was a pleasure to work with and she went out of her way to scout locations in DC and surrounding areas. She worked with me prior to the shoot to pick out locations and looks that I wanted. She showed up on time, brought a wardrobe, and picked me up for the shoot. Coming from out of town and setting up a shoot without her help would have been difficult. I recommend her without reservation." Read less

"We Draw. 3 times a week ,15-25 of us assemble do old school figure drawing. When she's on the schedule, people make a point of canceling other things to come draw. Her poses are always a stretch and are cognizant of what the artist is looking for, even if that means it might be a physical stretch for her. Rock Solid: Once she strikes a pose she's there -right there, not even a twitch much less a drift- for 20/30/40 minutes. AND one of the MOST professional, always on time, always calendar aware (she has caught ME double booking!!!) there is. I hate to say, "hire her" because that might mean less opportunity for us, but if you do do, you won't look back. Extra bonus: she's a genuinely nice and sincere person." Read less
