I Shot Myself

Hello My Sugar Plums!

The past few weeks have been a serious whirlwind in RoxyLand. Ever since starting my weblog and joining Model Mayhem the offers have been pouring in. I have photoshoots booked for every weekend in May and June is filling up fast. I'm trying to remember to stay relaxed and not let myself get overwhelmed! Feel free to take me out for a drink, bake me cookies, or just pet my head.

I am just moments away from posting the new Photo of the Week, and I just know you're gonna love it!

Bonus: Today I went out and bought a rad new camera. I decided to experiment with it. I could have taken pretty pictures of flowers, but thought it might be more fun to take my shirt off and photograph myself using the camera's timer. What do you think....?
Now keep in mind, these are not examples of my best photography, but rather me playing around with different exposures and features on my new camera!

The Fairy Shot J.R.

Aren't my friends pretty?

I'm a Woodland Fairy.

Finally asleep.

Hello my Sweets!

I returned today from a fantastical weekend in Dallas, Texas. I'm completely wiped out mentally and physically, but I had so much fun this weekend!

Friday I had the pleasure of working with John of Images in Light Photography in Dallas. We did a very artistic shoot that included lots of wind, nudity and tulle! There was also some satin and chains involved, but you'll get to see the photos soon enough!

That night, I met up at the Hotel with my best friends and we partied our asses off. But not too hard because we had to get up at the ass crack of dawn to get ready for the Scarborough Renaissance Faire. Yes, I am one of those people. The people that talk about and prepare for Ren Fests all year long and then gets dressed to the hilt and spends all day being adored and photographed. Let me put it this way - I rock in the real world, but at Faire - I am a fucking Rock Star.

See my costume in the photo? I handmade that bad boy and I am seriously considering going into business. What do you think?

I slept most of the way on the car ride home today. No easy feat in a Mustang. My entire body aches from posing for photos, dancing around in a costume that probably weighs 20 pounds and saying "Screw my Model diet" by eating tons of delicious Faire food.

I had a 4 hour nap today which has made me no less eager to crawl back in my bed and powersleep for about 12 hours. I leave you with this message:

Thank you so much, those of you who have signed up for updates. Your new job is to tell your friends about this website and get them to sign up too!

I love you all and wish you could smell how sweetly vanilla scented I am right now...

An Overdue Reunion.

My very first photoshoot. circa 2005.

Hello My Darlings,

You can all exhale now because I have finally launched my weblog! Hooray! It's been a long time coming and I hope to use this site to keep you all updated on my fun and fabulous misadventures.

Yesterday I had an amazing fetish-themed photoshoot with photographer Kenny Haner of It was a reunion that was long overdue. You see, Kenny was the first pro photographer I ever modeled for. We stayed in touch over the years and I watched as his work got more and more fantastic. I found myself wondering if Mr. Big Shot Photographer would have the time of day for little ol' me.

It delights me to report that even though Kenny has done brilliant work on several films, magazines and websites, he was totally game when I asked if he wanted to get together for a shoot.

When we met up at the studio, he got out of a nicer car with nicer equipment, but he was still the laid-back, cool-as-hell guy that I remembered. The guy that went with me to my first strip club and told me, "Pick the prettiest girl here." That's how I got my first lapdance.

Bonus: Through Kenny I got to meet fellow Alternative Model Miss
Sabrina Sin who graces the cover of this month's Culture Asylum Magazine. She was adorable, petite and friendly. I look forward to working with her in the future.

I cannot wait for you all to see the photos from the shoot. I'll keep you posted.
Right now I'm going to cook some dinner and watch Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist.

My arms are around you all...
