In the end, my favorites will probably always be the more alternative ones with the really unique costumes and outfits.
It was the reason why I started after all.
I do like to vary it up though, so things don't get too repetitive.
Tell us where are you from, how old are you, something about growing up.
-I am from Dallas, Texas and I am 28 years old. I grew up in a very normal suburban American household.
What were your childhood dreams - like, what did you want to become when you grow up?
-I always wanted to become an artist when I grew up. I always liked dressing up and posing in front of the camera too so I guess modeling was something I was fond of since then as well!
Tell us about your regular day - how does it look like.
-My life is not nearly as exciting as some people think it is! On an average day, I will wake up as late as possible, go to work or shoot, come home, work out, and then lounge around on the couch until I have to go back to sleep. I try to give myself at least one or two fun bonus days a week though to keep it interesting. But as I get older I want to go out less and less haha
Model life. How and when did you start with modeling?
-I was 18 when I first began modeling. I used to dress really over the top gothic when I was in high school and was in a photography class. Sometimes I would be the subject because of this. Once I graduated I decided to make an account on Model Mayhem and see if I could do it for real to maybe just get some cool photos out of it. 10 years later, here I am.
First experience in front of the camera? How did you feel?
-I was super nervous at first. Like, what if they hated me or I looked awful or they could tell I had no idea what I was doing? Not 5 minutes into the first shoot, the photographer complimented the fact that I "really knew what I was doing" and I just went with it. Little did he know, I had no clue what I was doing. My outfit was awful too haha
What kind of photos do you prefer? Also, do you like to take instructions from the photographer or to be a part of the shooting ideas?
-In the end, my favorites will probably always be the more alternative ones with the really unique costumes and outfits. It was the reason why I started after all. I do like to vary it up though, so things don't get too repetitive.
Lingerie photos - your favorite lingerie that you like to wear during the photo session?
-Corsets are usually a favorite since I don't have to worry about having a great shape with them on!
Who is in charge of lingerie when it comes to photo sessions?
-I let the photographer tell me what kind of style they are going for the shoots and then I will choose lingerie from my wardrobe that I think fits that the best. It's a little bit from both sides, but 90 percent of the time the things shot are my own.
Who is in charge of your Hairstyle and Makeup?
-Me! I rarely have a MUAH and have had many years to practice with what works best for me. Saves a little bit of time and money when it comes to shoots as well.
What would be your advice to young girls who would like to start modeling career?
-Do your research on every person you work with. Don't let anyone try to push you into something you don't feel right about. If it doesn't feel right, leave. Bring someone with you when you first start and network with other models who can give you advice.
Tell us something about your art?
-It is simply a way for me to be able to be free and creative and show that alternative looks can be just as lovely as mainstream ones. It also fuels the fire that is my shopping addiction.
What do you like about London?
-I love how close everything is! I am used to having to take long drives in Texas to anything. It's nice to be able to walk everywhere and get exercise in when you're not even thinking about it.
Plans for the rest of this year?
- Will be heading back to Texas again soon for a visit and then I have no idea! I am sure plenty of surprise adventures await me!
