Hello, you may call me Myrlena or M for short! I am a freelance model who first began modeling when I was 7 years old, and I'm 27 now so do the math, its been a while! Modeling was my full-time profession for a bit, but I have now moved on to incorporate a few of my loves into my delight in being in front of the camera: Cosplay and Kimonos! I've started up my own side business selling kimono and cosplay, called Forever Desired, and I am also going to be the model for my own product!
-Behind the PhotoShop-
I am a natural Redhead with hazel eyes and fair skin. My hair texture is naturally fluffy and wavy and made for the 80's however I tend to straighten it unless requested otherwise. I have a very slight figure and have corset trained and can fit a 20" underbust usually without a problem. Overbusts/Cupped Corsets are not always best on my figure as while I have a fantastic body, it is proportional and I simply cannot make A-cups fill out what is meant for a C.
I have a couple of small tattoo's, one on each hip and one on the back of my neck, which are all easily concealable if desired. I also have some minimal scaring on my upper thighs, but nothing major. My skin is generally smooth and seldom do make up artists have issues or a need for false lashes as mine are quite long on their own. I do try to keep a consistent french manicure with black tip instead of white and a black pedicure. If this needs to be changed for a shoot, please inform me well beforehand, as I use shellac and it takes more than a few seconds with a cottonball to remove.
Concerning rates, they are determined by several factors:
-Whether or not I am doing my own hair
-Whether or not I am doing my own makeup
-Whether or not I am providing the wardrobe
-Distance to and from the shoot from Fort Lauderdale
"Why those factors?" Hair and Makeup are included because that is an extra 2-3hrs of my time as well as my product being used so that you don't have to fret over hiring an MUA or stylist, though if you wish to, by all means! Wardrobe is a factor because most of what I shoot in is on the rather pricey side of things, especially regarding latex and kimono, and I quite frankly need to support my costuming habit. Distance, I hope, is self explanatory. I do not charge extra for nudity as I do not personally see a point. However, level of nudity MUST be established prior to shooting as a part of 'wardrobe' discussion.
I happily work a 'day' rate for longer shoots or multi-photographer shoots, though this is a part of my income, so please respect me as such and keep in mind that "exposure" does not fill my gas tank. I might be open to TF shoots if you have an amazing idea and theme, but please do not message me expecting a freebie. With TF shoots, I will generally expect a disc/dropbox file of all the images from the shoot as well as a signed release (yes, I have releases for you to sign, too!) allowing me to edit and use the images as I see fit for non-commercial purposes.
-Escorts on Shoots-
In case it wasn't obvious, I am a rather small woman, and while I have martial arts training, I am not going to put myself in a situation where I can be potentially hurt. As such, I like to bring an 'escort' of sorts on shoots. This is for not only my safety, but your accountability. My escort, on top of watching out for my well being, is someone I am comfortable helping me with things like wardrobe, makeup, hair, watching my belongings, and, as a bonus, taking calls and informing my significant other I am safe so that I can be 100% focused on shooting. Having an escort is something that makes me feel comfortable, and if I am comfortable, we will have a much better shoot, now won't we! If you do not like the idea of me having an escort and this is a deal breaker, then I am sorry and I wish you the best on your projects, but my safety and comfort come first.
If you wish to work with me, please remit a link to your webpage/portfolio and phone number either here or MyrlenaModeling@gmail.com
Do not contact me asking for a shoot and "favors". I will happily report you. Ask me during a shoot for a bit of "extra" work and I will take my payment, be on my way, and report you when I get home. Do not invite me to shoot with you if you plan on having illegal drugs present, I will take a traveling/gas/inconvenience fee and leave. I am a professional model and woman and expect photographers and models alike whom I work with to be the same.
