For The Love of Money

1138186_man_sleeping_on_the_groundThe first time I came to Atlanta, I was on a Greyhound bus on my way to Macon, GA and I saw about 50 people lined up on the sidewalk. I thought they were shooting a movie or something. Ten years later I moved to Atlanta and that's when I found out that there was no movie being shot ten years prior.

Beauty Of The Week: Lady Love

Lady Love

What makes me Beauty of the Week? I am a unique model because I am open to all aspects of modeling. I refuse to limit my talents or my dreams. In the course of my career I will have the privilege of participating in product advertisements, commericals, catalogs, book covers, magazines, and event promotions. I exercise my creativity through my work. I use props and costumes to create a memorable theme to my photos. I find this to be a great way to entertain my audience and keep them eager to see more of my work. I ask my audience for feedback on my images so I know what areas I need to improve on. I welcome everyone's opinion because they are the people that support me and therefore made Lady Love. I am a huge fan of Loyalty. I always help those who have helped me, whether it's through promotion, networking or other professional favors. I know how important it is to be humble in this industry, I've put too much work into building professional relationships to let them perish for celebrity and status.
