About Me

Hello everyone, and thank you for taking the time to look at the profile.

This is Jocoya. (pronounce: joh-KWOH-ya & rhymes with the Sequoia tree)

I am a historian and travel consultant based in Sonoma County that is looking to join the artist arena- as a female TFP model.

Communication is key. If you decide to reach out to me, please include your name, what you are looking for in the project, and a little bit about yourself. I respond faster to people who put in the time and effort to appear professional and friendly, as I do the same and expect nothing less. Thank you!

I wish to work with diverse concepts, environments, and people, so please do not hesitate to message me. I love taking criticism and using it to become a better model. This whole field is about learning, creating, and growing in a respectful and fun manner. I look forward to working with you.

My objectives for joining are the following:
1) add diversity to the Model Mayhem and North Bay Area’s artist circle
2) provide disenfranchised groups with a forum of representation
3) collaborate with photographers, designers, models, and other artists’ portfolio(s)
4) expand my skill set
5) journey into something new
6) and have fun as a hobby!

Tuesdays: all day
Wednesdays: until 8PM
Thursdays: After 4PM
-If already booked in advance these open times might not be available.
-If the schedule does not work for you, let me know advance in order to accommodate you.

I am willing and available to travel a 60 miles radius from Sonoma County, CA. Flexible to high fantasy and historical-like gigs.

When contacting please include the following information:
1) Concept/Theme
2) Time/ Date/ Location
3) H&MUA/Photographer/Stylist

We shall send each other a courtesy text message 48 hours prior to the project in order to be on the same page.

Type of Compensation:
I am looking for TF/TFP/TFD collaborations to develop my portfolio. I only wish for 3 things: 1) MM & social media credit, 2) networking, and 3) gain experience. If an individual prefers a contract and pricing list, we may discuss.

I usually start through MM messaging for hellos and verified not spam. Then whatever is the collaborator(s)' preference of engagement: Email, Meet-up Brainstorming, and/or Texting. This will provide a solid record for reference. Heads-up, I do not own a smartphone; thus, text or call me the day of shoot.

My phone number is provided during brainstorming and after a shoot is confirmed.

If you Prefer a Meet-up for Brainstorming
1) We shall meet at the appointed date, time, and location.
2) Spotting me, I shall be in front of the public location’s building.
3) Cancellation, both parties shall give each other at least a 24-hours’ notice due to travel and set-up time.

Photo/Product Development Process:
1) I do not assume that the photos, clothing, and other products to immediately appear. I know most of us have several responsibilities elsewhere.
2) Prefer a photo(s) less than 5 weeks from the photo shoot date. Unless contracted otherwise.

After I received the photos, I leave lovely verified credit comments.

I prefer to hold off social media posts in order to present our work with a publication. if prefer to post, let me know.
I shall deliver the list after our photosession together, not before.

Body Specifics:
1) Specific Size: 39 C/D-32.5-45. Dress:12-14. Shoe:9.5-10W (depends on the company)
2) Ethnicity: I am multi-ethnic (African, Middle Eastern, North American, and European) (14 ethnicities), Overall, I am a Chocolate and Vanilla mix.
3) Body type/condition: Pear. I am like pudding, firm with a little bit of a jiggle.
4) Skin type/colour: Sensitive/combo skin, some acne scarring. “Winter coat” is sand beige to "Summer coat" is caramel beige.
5) Hair type/colour: Curly 3C & Kinky 4A. Length depends on hair manipulation (neck to shoulders). Dark Chocolate Brown with Brown Chestnut natural highlights.
6) No body modifications/mutilation: zero tattoos, piercings, dye hair, highlights, extensions, implants, removals, add-ons, injections, plastic surgery, etc. A blank canvas- sort of. I do have a scar on my right arm and on my lower abdomen after losing my murderess appendix.

I wish not to participate in the following:
1) unhealthy/harmful/criminal/deadly works that put others and myself in danger
2) promotes, produces and/or supports cultural appropriation, discrimination, hatred, and/or bigotry
3) nudes, BDSM, explicit boudoir, pink shots, hardcore implied assignments are not my genre interest. Soft implied with clothes on (sensual vibe), we could discuss.

Other Need to Knows:
1) During the shoot, I use the check-in cellphone (on vibrate) buddy system.
2) On holidays, will not participate in photosessions.
3) I am capable of doing my own natural hair but open to working with stylists, as they work on my natural curly-fluff.
4) I have somewhat limited skills in conventional makeup. My everyday face is zero makeup or minimalistic. I am open to a MUAH. I react badly to NARS products.

Day of the Shoot:
I show up on time and well prepared.
I bring required items: wardrobe, accessories, water, cellphone, a bag of smiles, some kick-booty vibes, etc

Thank you for this opportunity for growth.
