About Me

I AM A PROFESSIONAL FINE ART NUDE MODEL.
I love what I do. I pour my heart, and soul, and back into every shoot and we make art. Collaboratively. 
I'd be happy to travel to you or you're welcome to come to me.
I only book paid shoots. You will find my rates listed below under the "COMPENSATION / MY RATES" section, along with additional info. This is my career and I do not work for free. Trade requests will be ignored.

GENERAL INFO

TIPS FOR COLLABORATORS:  In my experience, I have found that it helps to come to the shoot with some clear or even vague ideas about what you would like to accomplish. Maybe you have a location or a set you'd like to explore or maybe your vision is a little more clear: I.E. you're looking for deep shadows, something anonymous with a just got home after a long day of work feel, or maybe you want just the opposite. Like anyone who produces his or her best in any situation, it is important that I am allowed to find my grove and get lost in the concept. Pose coaching is not a problem, but I work best if we can get into a rhythm. I have a sincere AND vested interest in bringing your ideas to life. If something is not working or does not look good, do tell. As far as I see it, it's not personal and I'd actually prefer to know. 

ON BOUNDARIES: Because tuning into and feeding off one another's creativity is essential to producing powerful imagery, I always try to be kind, open, and attentive. I put effort into developing a sincere yet professional rapport with each person I collaborate with. For this reason, I find that I most enjoy working with the same people over and over. Unfortunately, I have found that my friendly demeanor and comfort with being nude can send mixed messages, so let me be clear: Whether I am shooting with you for the first time or the twentieth time, please DO NOT EVER ask me to masturbate, or do spread shots, and PLEASE please do not caress me. Unfortunately, this has to be said.

BOOKING A SHOOT: Only serious inquiries will receive a response. Please provide:
•A description of the shoot
•Time and duration
•Location
•Confirm understanding and method of compensation
•Contact Information (This is key: A shoot is not confirmed booked until I have your contact number. If you're not comfortable sharing your contact number, then I am not comfortable working with you.)
•Makeup info and whether or not you would like for me to bring wardrobe/props

COMPENSATION:  Though I sincerely understand the many reasons for tfp/cd arrangements, I simply DO NOT shoot on a TRADE basis. If for whatever reason you think we have a trade shoot booked, there, without a doubt, has been a misunderstanding.

MY RATES:
$150/hr with 2 hr minimum
$500 - 4 hours
$1,000 - Full Day (If working on location outdoors, I'm open to structuring the shoot to capture sunrise and sunset with break in the middle of the day. These arrangements must be communicated and agreed to prior to the shoot.)

I offer a 20 percent discount for shared commercial rights. I book these arrangements selectively and require that edits are delivered within 90 days of the shoot date.

I prefer to be paid in cash, but also accept payment via Paypal, Venmo, CashApp, or Zelle. Under special circumstances, I will also accept a personal check.

I do not / will not engage in any sort of arrangement where I receive a certain percentage from the sale of images, even if you pay me.

You are welcome to invite another photographer, your spouse, or a photo assistant to our session. I ask for advanced notice and that your add on is aware of professional standards and etiquette. If someone is making me uncomfortable at a shoot, I will not hesitate to diplomatically resolve the issue.

CANCELLATIONS: Too often people book and cancel last minute (like 30%)! This is crippling if you're in business for yourself. If you cancel within 7 days of a shoot AND we have never worked together, I will likely not risk booking with you again unless you've either paid a deposit or provide $150 cancellation fee. My consistent experience is that these people become "repeat offenders," if allowed.

AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHERS: To those who are new to photography or who have never hired a professional model, please don't shy away. I do not discriminate based on skills, I do however look for tasteful content in someone's body of work.

POSING IN THE COLD:  I simply and absolutely cannot do it anymore. I have allowed too many photographers shoots in freezing conditions, for hours, naked, without much body fat. As a result, I have serious nerve damage and suffer from Raynaud's Disease. If we have an outdoor shoot scheduled and temps drop below 55 degrees, then we need to arrange an indoor location.

FETISH/ADULT CONTENT: I do not shoot any type of explicit or fetish content.  Should you capture accidental images that cross my boundaries I reserve the right to both ask you to delete the image AND add an amendment to your model release to ensure no such image is shared or is posted on the Internet. I photograph all amended model releases with the photographer holding it. Don't get documented. wink

MY BUSH:  I maintain my bush because I like it. Under no circumstances will I change it.

WAKING UP EARLY:  I like shooting in the morning and I love shooting outdoors! And if that means waking up before sunrise, bring it on. smile

I think this covers all the general, need to know stuff. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to PM me.

The living model, the naked body of a woman, is the privileged seat of feeling, but also of questioning... The model must mark you, awaken in you an emotion which you seek in turn to express.

"Melissa is the consummate professional! We spent the whole day shooting with Melissa in multiple locations. She's easy to work with, takes directions well, and offers suggestions without being pushy. She's quickly able to see your vision and help to realize it. With her, we had one of the best shooting days in a long while. I've gotten so many good shots from our day together I'll be busy for a while! Highly recommended." Read less

"I met Melissa when she was coming through Pittsburgh on a photo tour. I am so glad I did. We shot art nudes and bodyscapes for a few hours and I can't believe how talented she is. She's in amazing shape, knows how to move her body and she's a great conversationalist while she does it. She is a true pro at this and it is obvious that she has years of practice, and keeps it up. She has suggestions if you need them because she works with some great photographers. In this business there are a lot of attractive people, but there aren't as many that leave you with a feeling that they are as good on the inside as on the outside. Melissa is one of those individuals. It was a FUN shoot! It's taken me way too long to post one of these images. The truth is, I'm starting a nude/boudoir brand in another label under my social media and transitioning into it has taken awhile, not to mention that I have so many photos from the shoot to go through and edit. A great problem to have, I guess. I hope to work with Melissa again!" Read less
