What is your favorite thing to do when you are not modeling?
Photography has always been an interest of mine. For plus models, agents will often request the models provide their own photos, which allows them to better market us to specific clients. Since I studied graphic design and photography in college, picking up the camera and taking the kind of shots models needed in their book came easily to me. In addition, I’ve worked with some amazing photographers and learned a lot just by observing at shoot.
On an agent’s recommendation, I started to photograph other plus models for their portfolios. I love shooting outdoors and using natural light but have also created a small studio in my home. Photography is turning into a good second career.
Every Wednesday I volunteer at the Liberty Humane Society. Volunteering at the shelter is a great way to get involved and help. I help run their wellness clinic that provides discounted veterinary services to pets in the community and walking the dogs is great exercise. I am passionate about pet adoption and helping pets find families and homes. I adopted my sweet boxer/pit bull mix, Cali 6 years ago from the Liberty Humane Society where I volunteer.
I also enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, tennis and anything else outdoors.
