I am a model originally from Rochester, currently living in the Buffalo area.
I have most experience in casual fashion and non-nude glamor. I have also done a variety of other shoots, at this point I am interested in exploring different modeling and photography styles, with the exception of my limits listed below. I do some video work as well. I do one-time assignments, and LOVE repeat clients!I Currently I most interested in exploring boudoir modeling and photography. I am also a hobbyist photographer, I particularly enjoy photographing flowers, animals, sunsets, landscapes, and architecture (especially churches).
I do work with photography students! Contact me if you are interested in collaborating on a project.
Models: I am always interested in networking. I occasionally have photographers looking to do a shoot with more than one model or asking for contacts for other models who may be interested. If you are interested in collaborating on a shoot or would like me to forward possible assignments to you, please send me an e-mail.
References: I can provide references upon request. I have listed under "links" some of the photographers I have worked with in the past.
Compensation is dependent upon the duration of shoot, style of photography, and how the photographs are to be used, and will be discussed with interested photographers on an individual basis. My rates are very reasonable.
All payments must be made in cash at the time of the shoot, unless otherwise arranged beforehand. I do not bring cash with me, so please bring the exact amount.
I require a signed contract/model release for each shoot. The contract simply details in writing the compensation for the shoot and how the photographer and model are allowed to use the photographs. It also covers that the photographs may not be used or edited for any pornographic or defamatory purposes.
I reserve the right to bring one unobtrusive friend to the shoot. I do check references. Safety is my first priority. Alcohol/drugs/inappropriate comments will not be tolerated - I will walk out.
For TFCD shoots, a CD of the original and retouched (if any) photos must be provided in a timely manner.
Any credits should be done under my model name.
I do not do any nude or pornographic work. I will consider lingerie, bodypainting, and implied nudity with the right photographer. Please note that just because I may have something edgy featured in my portfolio, does not necessarily mean I will do that style with every photographer. Lingerie and implied shoots must be done tastefully.
My availability varies. I am available many weekdays, evenings, and weekends. I am flexible on scheduling.
I understand that personal things and conflicts may arise that you may have to cancel a shoot for. Please give at least 48 hours notice if you will be unable to shoot. I will not reschedule with a no-call/no-show.
Shoots I am interested in doing
A bikini-style shoot with very large snake I.e. Burmese python wrapped around the model, preferably in a nature/waterfall area
Various equine-themed photos, I.e. picture of model wearing riding gear while brushing horse out in the barn, picture of rider kissing horse on the cheek, picture of rider leading horse away to pasture, picture of rider in casual clothes laying on horse bareback, picture of horse/rider jumping in arena. Lots of black and whites, some color.
“Trash the Dress”
Model wears wedding-style or white formal dress and paints on dress in bright colors with hands while wearing it… bright reds, yellows, blues, lots of handprints. Very light shoot, lots of smiles/laughing. Possibly shot in a field.
Model wearing turnout gear posing with trucks, various props- halligan, SCBA, carrying sections of hose, etc. Possibly some calendar-style shots, and model’s face/hair smudged to look like ash.
Either in casual clothes or formal wear/uniforms. Playful, romantic, and sensual (clothed) photos of male and female model showing affection for one another. Holding hands, embracing, kissing. Indoor or outdoor shoot.
I would like to do a head-shot shoot with a makeup artist or MUA student with several different styles of make-up, from subtle to bold to edgy/outrageous. Also would like pictures taken showing application process.
Shoot done where a large portion of the model’s body/face has been covered with henna “tattoos”. Shoot could be head-shots only or done in revealing clothing in a nature setting.
Photos of different poses in which the model spells out the various letters of the alphabet with her body. Can be done in different settings and with different outfits, perhaps in a setting or with a prop that starts with the letter being posed.
Different days and locations. Model holds/wears large hand-made signs in public and at events, addressing controversial current events/politics. Signs may address specific issues or be humorous commentary (I.e. “demotivational posters“). Some shoots deliberately controversial, aim is to get a reaction. No specific party alignment/agenda.
