I am new to the Plus Sized industry although I am no stranger to the beauty industry in general. I have worked as a make-up artist and was a pageant contestant and queen for about 10 years before retiring five years back. Being behind a camera seems natural to me and I have learned so much last year and I just keep getting better! Anyway, I'm hoping to network with photographers, models and MUA and others who want to work with my body type. You can call me Plus Sized, Curvy Model, Full Figured Model, what ever, makes no difference to me:) I think in enjoy the phrase "full figured" because this is what I feel like most. I LOVE my curves and I'm hoping to find people who feel the same way as I do.





Looking for ANY type of work (PAID and VERY select TF* ONLY at this time) except full nudity that will help grow and give the world a most diverse portfolio. Actually, I should amend that statement a little because far too many people are emailing me for stuff I would NEVER consider. If it involves me turning around and showing off my a$%...there is no need to even message me. "More power to the ladies that with what you got!" Its just not my thing. Implied and artistic is ok as well...i love those! I like classy, sassy stuff. Look at my age, then think again about what projects to offer me please. I DO believe in paying photographers who are amazing, however I cannot do this right now as my funds are extremely need to send me your "specials".

I love creative stuff and would love to do themed photos as well. I travel often (by plane) so please hit me up even if you are not in my area. GWC' need to email me at all...did you NOT just look at my port??!!

A little more about the Allure of me:) I am of African American and Spanish Creole roots born in Houston, TX. Someone in my ancestry made this devilish deal that affects all women in my family to this day. You see..we pretty much stop aging completely after our 25th B-day and it doesn't start up again until every 15 years after that. So, we tend to look about 15 years younger then we actually are. Cool right??! But there is a catch, for every year of youth we keep, we loose that exact amount of years to the single I just thought YOU should know this...*S

What I need from you once we plan a shoot or appointment:

Email confirmation of the shoot including a date and time.
Info. on what to bring to the shoot
Do I need to do my own hair and MU?

The first thing is very important. Without it, i have nothing on hard copy to go back to as a reminder. Thank You!

Models, always ask me if I will give recommendations to a photographer used in my port. Just because I used a photo, does NOT mean I would ever work with this person ever again. (ok, this is JUST for ONE photographer but I really needed to tell you this). All others are grand and I LOVE them! But please do ask:) Models are not the only ones that can be flaky:)
