Where are you from: Maryland

Favorite photographer to work with: My favorite photographer is Susie Berg-Lundmark from Sassy Susie Glamor and Boudoir In Minot, ND. She made me feel super comfortable and her pictures are just on point. She is a wonderful woman and a fantastic photographer.

Artist/Photographer/location of featured photo(s) Cherry girl Hawaii in Honolulu, HI and Sassy Susie Glamor and Boudoir in Minot, ND/ MUA for Sassy Susie Glamor and Boudoir shoot was Glamorous By Jutone Rene.

Tell me about your featured photo(s). When were they taken? Why are they your favorite? The pictures taken from Cherry Girl Hawaii were taken in March, these are my favorite because this was my first photo shoot and I was a little self conscious about myself then I looked at these pictues and thought with some work I might be able to be good at this. The pictures taken from Sassy Susie Glamor and Boudoir were taken in June. They're my favorite because I felt like a bombshell in these photos, I loved the makeup done and the lighting in my opinion was great. 

How long have you been modeling/enjoying photography? I have been enjoying photography for years now but I have been wanting to model for about 3 years and I finally took a step towards modeling this year.

Who are your favorite Pinup Models? Past or present inspiration? I love Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. I know those are probably typical answers but I can't help it they were so talented and super gorgeous.

What is some of your favorite clothing lines? Favorite Designers? Right Now my favorite clothing lines are Pinup Girl clothing and bettie page clothing. Their clothes really display my curves and make me feel confident, whats the point on wearing clothes that don't make you feel like a bombshell? 

If you could shoot with any photographer, past or present, who would it be? I would love to shoot with Atomic Cheesecake Studios in Baltimore,Maryland I love their pictures. Also Sugar and Spice Photography in Minnesota, I hear ALOT of good things about them.

What is your favorite color and why? My favorite color in the whole wide world is red. I don't know why, cause I know when I was little my fav color was yellow because of the yellow power ranger lol. But when I was a teenager I loved the look of red on ANYTHING, could have been on an oven mitt and I thought it was gorgeous. It is just a sexy, passionate color.

If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead who would it be? If I could have dinner with anyone, I think I would choose Edgar Allan Poe. He was an fantastic writer. I love his poems, it would probably be a interesting dinner, don't cha think? lol

How did you get your model name? It was actually my husband's idea. He took my middle name, Nicole, and used the name of the hospital I was born in and tada Nicki Reed was born!
