You seem to have found my website! Whether this was by accident or on purpose, I welcome you to my little bit of cyber space! For my first post, it seems logical to write (type) a little bit about myself, what I do and how I got to be doing it…
I went to university in Canterbury to study a BSc in Psychology and stayed there to study an MSc in Forensic Psychology. It wasn’t long after I came home to Stoke-on-Trent that I accidentally became a model and found out it was something I’m really passionate about.
My dad is a photographer and so I’ve always been in front of a camera but never thought anyone was serious when they said, ‘you should be a model!’ It was on a whim that I made a profile on PurplePort, social media for photographers and models, and I had my first proper shoot on the 23rd January 2015. I loved it. I couldn’t wait for my next shoot, and the passion just grew from there. After doing a handful of shoots and learning a little about what I was expected to do, I realised I had found something I loved doing… And that it could be my job! Nine months later, I’m a full time model, loving my life and excited for the future.
A Little About Me:
Compassionate Living: In March 2014 I became a vegan. I’ve always loved animals, but making the decision to become a vegan changed my life. I can’t claim to love animals if I exploit them by eating them and the things they produce. It’s that simple.
Family: I have a pet rabbit called Yorick and a kitten called MJ. They are the whole world to me. (And the boyfriend is pretty cool too!)
Hobbies: I consider myself a very creative individual and that is reflected in the things I spend my time doing. Creative writing, drawing, making things, yoga, playing ukulele, knitting and crocheting, colouring-in, moving the furniture around in my house, listening to music, reading, dressing up, cooking, baking, exploring outside…
Personality: I’m a fun person to be around. I like to laugh and have fun and spend time doing things I love. Life is just too short to do anything else.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it and hopefully you’ve got a feel for who I am and what I do.
The first photograph I’ve chosen to upload is from my first ever shoot. The photographer was Shelly. If he hadn’t seen my profile on PurplePort and decided to give me a chance, I might never have had the opportunity to become the model I am today. So thank you.
