I was actually backpacking thru California, when a photographer (Robert Donahue) asked to shoot me...I was hesitant at first...mainly because of my height etc., but he explained glamour photography and showed me his portfolio. I was still hesitant, but when ahead and gave it a shot...I said I’d give it a year, and so far, it's been awesome!! :) I've been featured in Playboy, Fight!, Italian Maxim, Hombre, Citypages, Backpocket, Study Breaks, Nifty, Heaven and Hell, and Blisss magazine.
What excites you about modeling?
I love art! I love how modeling turns the body into an art piece. I also love how many people I meet thru modeling. I love how I can expose needs in the world to more people thru modeling as well!
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I love shooting very retro or hippy themes, I think they are so sexy :) I also love shooting on the beach, it's my favorite place to be! :)
What are your least favorites?
I like shooting in swimwear if on the beach, but I really can’t stand when a photographer wants to shoot swimwear in a hotel room, to where it looks like he said "ok, go stand over there". If it looks Victoria secret like, then ok, but sometimes it can just be so cheesy!
What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?
I would love to do some Voltaire (the photographer) styled shots, but at one point I would just like my whole portfolio to be tear sheets. That would be a dream! :)
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I do music and art therapy with children in Uganda :)
What kind of music do you like?
I LOVE ALL MUSIC!!! hip hop, blues, rock, you name it :)
What do you like to do for fun?
I love outdoor activities! Bike rides, kayaking, traveling, camping, jumping off bridges into lakes, outdoor events...I also love to blues/swing dance!
