About Me

Hello and Welcome to my site. I'm Melanie, a fun, bubbly girl who's 27-and both looks and acts young. I am very sincere about modeling and I love to have fun with my shoots. I like to explore different possibilities and aim to try what no other photographers and models are trying. I have a ton of acting experience including various theatre training and experience. My previous training includes Certification at Equity Showcase's 10 month intensive acting program, 1 year completion at Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, Levels A&B at Second City Improv, among other classes, such as Showoffs Studio for Performers and Witz Training Certificate in Communication Skills. I currently run an image consulting business-Hayden Image Consultants.

I will respond back to all emails sent by photographers. Generally, I respond back to emails within 48-72 hours. I am also very interested in working with amateur photographers. Ultimately, I rather enjoy working with photographers who are very passionate about the whole business, experienced or not.

Rates, although can be considered a huge hinderance, I feel they are more of a result of a photographer's desire for a "particular" model. I love this whole business and I aim to achieve a comfortable scenario between the photographer and myself.

Therefore, fair rates are $15/hr for casual, fashion, editorial, glamour, and $40/hr for lingerie. I am open to flat rate shoots. There is a minimum of 2hrs/shoot, that is probably the least amount of time to get some good quality pix in.

I like to meet with each photographer initially to discuss their interests for the shoot, their goals, and what has inspired them to get into photography. This also gives the photographer a chance to ask me any questions they have and potentially I can bring some outfits on this meeting to get a few ideas to sit on before the shoot. The more I understand regarding the wishes of the photographer, the better I can be prepared for the shoot. My reputation is very important for this industry. Therefore, I also will state to you that I will show up to all scheduled shoots and initial meetings. I am extremely reliable.

TFP is offered for casual/headshots/fashion shoots. I don't offer TFP for lingerie shoots, and I don't offer TFP lingerie in another TFP setting, just simply because there is a huge paid market for the latter types of shooting.

Bye for now and many thanks to the following for their continuous encouragement and inspiration in this wonderful business: Anna Mackay-Smith, Art Nefsky, Mike Weigand, James Pattel, Deborah Bojman, Witz Training, Skye Coates, Rob Clifford, D.J. North, Mixed Co. Theatre, Patrick of Stellar North Talent, my sister, mom, dad, and God.

Thanks everyone, Love You.
