A propos de moi
**If I send you a friend request it is because I am interested in working together and I think we could work well together.**
Thanks for visiting my page! Here is a little bit about me:
I am a rock climber. I am a model. I am an animal lover. I am a vagabond. I am a dancer. I am a dog momma to two lovely pups(one of which travels with me full time). I love to be outside, I love to experience new things. I love to be strong. I would rather climb a 500 foot cliff to the top of a mountain than hike up it. I love to bake. I am mainly vegetarian with some vegan tendencies, I love veggies and anything fresh. The closer it is to being plucked from the ground, the better! The most important thing to me is taking good care of my body and mind, and I am always learning how to do a better job of this. Oh, did I mention, I also LOVE learning, I am currently teaching myself to play Ukulele, Drive Stick, and Slackline.
Here is some info about the modeling side of me: After all, that is what you came here for, right?
I have modeled for about four years doing a little bit of it all, with most of my energy these days going towards art nudes. I enjoy working with photographers that are professional and easy to get along with. I LOVE to do nature shoots and have absolutely no problems with climbing trees, rocks, jumping in/out of water, getting muddy, sandy, you name it! I actually think getting messy and playing are some of the best parts of my job! I have worked with dogs, horses, people, and snakes on camera. I have no problem getting painted, covered in flour, clay etc. I LOVE on location shoots as well, old abandoned buildings delight me! Nature delights me. I LOVE artistic nude shoots. I LOVE weird, out of the box shoots. I don't need to look conventionally pretty or sexy, I want to create powerful and inspiring art. That is why I model.
This is my full-time job and I love what I do. When I make a commitment to shoot I WILL be there. Please feel free to ask for references, or chat with photographers I have worked with if you would like verification!
What I am interested in and comfortable shooting:
I am totally comfortable being naked, and posing naked, for me nudity is not about sexuality it is about freedom of expression. Types of nudes I will always be happy to shoot are: Art nudes, Implied nudes, Bodyscapes, Fashion nudes, Concept/Emotion based nudes. I am also comfortable shooting with clothes on(check out my website) I will do anything fashion or art related and I will do glamour/lingerie on a case by case basis. If you want to shoot anything else check with me before scheduling a shoot and I will let you know how I feel about it.
Concepts I am particularly interested in: Black and whites, figure nudes, dark emotion based shots, dance/movement based shots, dance/contact improv with another model(or multiple models), Polaroids/Old Film/Wet plates, Shots with animals of any sort, body paint, climbing shots(clothed and nude), anything with any animal(can you tell how much I love animals yet?).
I am happy to shoot with photographers of all experience levels. I can take direction during a shoot but I am also completely comfortable with posing on my own.
I will shoot with other models on a case by case basis.
I do not shoot for free/TFP/airfare/hotels. My rate is very reasonable and this is my full time job.
I do have a cancellation policy.
Other basic info:
-I have no piercings aside from my ears
-No tattoos(I do not plan on changing this, you can count on me for tattoo-free skin)
-I am athletic and capable of climbing/balancing/hanging on many things
-I rock climb and dance all the time and often tend to have scratches or bruises on my limbs(I don't mind if you photoshop them or not).
-My hair is VERY long and generally straight with subtle waves, I can braid it if you want it wavier.
-I am proud to have a full bush, which I will trim occasionally do not plan to shave off.
-I am an experienced horse woman(12+ years in the industry) and always love opportunities to shoot with them
-When I am on the road I have my dog with me, you are welcome to incorporate him into our shoot. Or he can sleep in his crate.

Let me know if you are located in any of these places and would like to shoot! It always helps me to plan a trip when I know I will have fun/exciting people to work with.
If your city is not on my travel list I will fly to you(within the US)for a full day booking.
I am always happy travel anywhere US or abroad with airfare/gas covered, I do have a valid passport.
Message me to book a shoot:
-Include location, dates, concepts, and compensation
-Please note that I travel and rock climb in between gigs and sometimes I am out of cell service and wifi capability. If I do not respond promptly this is the reason, I promise I will get back to you once I return to civilization.
Cheers to you if you read my whole page,
