Age: 26

Occupation: a mother and working in good ol' retail

Where are you from: the Village of Spring Grove, IL...once upon a time it was lovely

Favorite photographer to work with:
I have not worked with many photographers, but i love working with the lovely Jasmine Bianca Cortes. Being a new model, trying to get myself seen, i love giving photographers that same opportunity. Two birds, one stone.

Artist/Photographer/location of featured photo(s):
Hair and makeup done by yours truly :) Photography by Jasmine Bianca Cortes in a very car cluttered back yard in Beach Park, IL.

Tell me about your featured photo(s). When were they taken? Why are they your favorite?
All photography by Jasmine Bianca Cortes.
1st photo (bicycle) was take on an EXTREMELY hot day in July 2012, Beach Park, IL. With Rusty Nuts 1960's Schwinn Stingray. This is one of my favorites because, for one, my skin looks so milky yummy amazing, and also the colors that jasmine captured really enhance the photo and make it look so spectacular.
2nd photo: Taken this October 2012 in Rusty Nuts 1949 Chevy Fleetline. I love this photo because i LOVE modeling in this car!
3rd photo: Taken this October 2012 on Rusty Nuts 1949 Chevy Fleetline. This is one of my favorites because it shows a bit of the art of pinstriping and its just well done.
4th photo: Taken this October 2012.
5th photo: Taken this October 2012. i love this photo because it is sexy and sassy!!

How long have you been modeling/enjoying photography?
I have only been modeling for about a year, but have always enjoyed photography. I grew up loving photography, but once i started in front of the camera rather then behind, i realized how much fun it is and what a self esteem booster it can be. Being the mother of a 2 year old, your self esteem gets lost in the mix and getting into modeling is the potion to cure that.

Who are your favorite Pinup Models? Past or present inspiration?
I'm loving Nikki Napalms photos, she is so beautiful and so talented in her modeling. My past inspirations are Bettie Page, Jane Russell, The Bomber Girls, Lucille Ball.

What is some of your favorite clothing lines? Favorite Designers?
 Too Fast, sourpuss, Angry Young and poor

If you could shoot with any photographer, past or present, who would it be?
Honestly, i would love to give new photographers the opportunity to shoot photos and maybe find their knack in pin up photography. though, i would like to get some professional shoots under my belt, i am open to finding a great studio. i have seen so many wonderful photographers out there, especially out of Chicago, IL. i would love to shoot with Viva Van Story, something about the raunch really gets me. 

What is your favorite color and why?
Purple! i just think its a lovely color for no particular reason  

If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead who would it be?
Lucille Ball and Roseanne. I think that would be the most amazing cocktail filled, laugh our butts off, crazy knee slapping time. You can't go wrong with hilariously raunchy woman.
