I can't believe that I haven't blogged in over a year!! Well HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!! I am looking forward to 2013 & I think it is going to be a fantastic year!!
I have relocated to Las Cruces from Albuquerque but I travel back to Albuquerque at least once a month.
I am enjoying the small town life but I am still transitioning. If anyone has any advice for me, I'd love to hear it!
I have been EXTREMELY busy!! I have been doing a lot of photo shoots & I have been getting a lot of modeling gigs! It ROCKS! I love modeling, I wish I could model full time.... I think I'll probably keep wishing because there isn't enough work in Albuquerque plus I'm too old, LOL!!
Ummmmmmm yeah ADHD again! LOL
Well lots of great things have been happening with my modeling! I won best makeup in a pinup contest, I won Albuquerque's Top Model & today I got booked for a presenter at the Music Awards inside Legends Theater! I'm happy!
Oh, I'm also in a contest to be the next Gertrude Zachary model!! I want it soooooooo bad!!
I'm sorry that I haven't blogged in awhile but I'm too ADHD & I forgot! I know BOO!! hehe I'll try to do better!
Let's see, sheesh I've been busy with a million & one things. My kickball team didn't do too well but we had FUN & that's all that matters! I started doing kickboxing & WOW does it kick my butt!! I cut my bangs short like "Bettie Page" bangs, & I love them! I will be in at least 5 calendars in 2012, one is the COVER of The Color Me Sexy Calendar! Thank you to everyone that voted for me, I'm so excited & I can't wait to see the pics! We already shot it!
As far as acting goes, my agent has been sending me to auditions (SCARY) and I have the worst stage fright EVER! I was offered a speaking role on Breaking Bad BUT I would have to be topless & in a thong so I declined... I really need to get over my stage fright.
My most recent gig was in a live westeren show! It was out in Santa Fe & I played a saloon girl, it was tons of fun & I met same amazing actors & people.
I recently shot 16 girls in one day OMG it was hot, time consuming, & a long day but I got it done! I've been getting hired to do photography more & more & I'm really loving it!
I've been working in the clinic at school & I still have many more massages before I'm complete but I'm getting there!
Life is good & I'm happy
Tonight was my company kickball team Desert Jewels 1st game & we won 14 to 7!! It was such a great night & I made 2 runs & pitched the whole game!
I've never been on a team before but I am tota;;y digging it, SO FUN!!! WOOOO DESERT JEWELS!!
I just finished editing 2 shoots I did yesterday. One was at an abandoned building & super creepy & one was in my studio & very pretty. I love shooting peoples ideas, it makes it so fun!
I had a great weekend!! I had my first practice for my Desert Jewels company kickball team!! I'm the captain, hehe! I have a captains meeting tonight & our 1st game is on Thursday, I'm so excited!!
Today I modeled for an ad in High Times Magazine & shot a commercial for the product! It was such a great shoot with photographer Ray from RedRayven. The owner Pat Dalton & his family were really fun & great people to work with! I just love when I have the pleasure of working with such awesome people. I wish all of my modeling gigs were to promote something I'm so passionate about... today was a great day!
Oh, & I'm the calendar girl of the day on 94 Rock!
Today was my 1st day meeting with Dan Griggs. He is an amazing artist that is going to paint me! I am so happy to have this gig. I'm going to be a work of art, how exciting!! We worked for hours just trying out different poses. He hasn't decided on one yet so on Friday we will try more. It's so interesting to be there & observe his creative process, artists just amaze me!!

I am so excited!! I finally moved into my new office/studio & everything is going great!! I've been working on launching my website for about 4 hours already & my brain feels like it's going to explode!! It's all worth it though & I'm so excited about getting my business off the ground.... YAY!!!!!
Today was great for a Monday!!
