who is this girl?
I’m a 21 year old gal born in Weyburn, SK- but I grew up mostly in Calgary, AB.
I have an eye for art as I have done dance, painting, singing and acting in my years during school. I have even directed my own play! of course I had to check off one last box and get into modelling...
so with me - getting creative with what the camera captures is important! I can present many of these skills to adhere to the look you want in a photoshoot.
I am on the short side (but good things come in small packages), so you may have to play with angles and high heels when working with me.
I also wear hearing aids, and need them in busy spaces- however, I can make do without wearing them upon request for shooting or if you want me to work with water as they aren’t waterproof!
thank you in advance for taking this small step to include diverse people into the modelling gig!
I hope you’ve learnt a little something new about me and what I have to offer! please click below to see my portfolio, and previous work with other photographers.
“representin’ different with a world of color”
what do I want in my photos?
how can I navigate/work with a h.o.h. or deaf model?
as someone who is hard of hearing,
I want to make it clear that us with hearing loss are just like everyone else!
you may only need to consider a few simple steps or tips to help include us individuals who struggle with fully or partially hearing loss to let us enjoy all social media without feeling left out.
use alt text on ig
here’s a youtube video to show you how to use the alt text feature, and how it helps include other people to indulge on your content!
describe posing in advance!
tell us as a model what you’d like us to do for the shot before you start capturing from afar,
so for example; if you want us to look left with our eyes while facing right- then just inform us of those details face to face beforehand instead of shouting them from a distance.
bring a friend/interpreter!
sometimes more is definitely merrier-
those who are deaf may need to bring along an interpreter just to communicate between the model and the photographer!
a friend for the hard of hearing model can help pass messages along, or reiterate the photographer’s requests throughout the shoot- especially if they can’t wear them due to the theme, or weather.
and finally, if you’re really eager- you can learn some ASL introduction basics!
