In the last while, probably closer to 2 years, I stumbled upon modelling. Me, someone who has always been shy, was never thought to be the model material, that was saved for my sister and I was made sure I knew it.
I've had pictures taken of me in private, but to have them posted for others to see was something I had had a very bad experience with, so I always avoided at all costs the opportunity. Then one day on a board I belong to, an old photograph of me surfaced, not distasteful or anything, in fact the opposite! I had more compliments than I knew what to do with, and with encouragement from many that I should consider modelling, I went for it. My first shoot was for Breast Cancer. I remember being excited and nervous, thinking what if I am too old, what do I wear, what do I bring.... the shoot went on for a full day. I learned so much that day, that I was hooked, I may not have gotten many images that day, but I gained a sense of self. Something I never felt quite like that before! Here is a finished product, I was to "channel" Rizzo from Grease, I think I hit the mark!
I was in love, love that I could look like this! I could sell an image, and the confidence exuded from within me! Since this shot, I've done various other images, fetish, implied nudity, art, black and white, lingerie, and a few others. I never knew there was such a calling for a woman in her 40's who is curvy, feminine yet has a sensual look about her.

I have been forever changed by this shoot, he captured images of me that convinced me and others that I do have something! I have since done a second shoot with him and post a few of this pictures to give a my Darkside an out! She craves the attention my Miss Darkside.....

But my real passion so I have discovered is Pin Up shoots. I love the clothing, the style, the classic look, the shoes! Oh the shoes are to die for!! I'm going to be doing a shoot on Dec. 9/11 and will be doing it here http://www.cheekicherry.com/ They have some of the most amazing clothing and footwear! I own a pair of their boots that I picked up last year at Naughty but Nice Sex Show in Vancouver . Coincidentally they are returning in January of 2013 here check out this link! http://www.canwestproductions.com/Home-Taboo

Love, Live and Laugh!!
