Photos by Phelps Started in 2007
My Work Ethic
I make pretty people..Prettier. (tm)
This is my philosophy, so when you read "Pretty People", it isn’t a direct reference to outer beauty but that which comes from within. So who we are on the inside, isn’t always reflected on the outside. When you work with me, we go over the ideas you have in mind to transform yourself visually. With my knowledge of lighting, composition and color grading... I’m able to create cinematic shots to celebrate who you really are. With over a decade of photography experience , numerous magazine covers and countless features across the internet , I can make your dream into a visual reality.
I use portable studio quality equipment for on location shoots but I do have access to studio space if needed. But what's the use of good photos if they aren't helping you reach your full potential? My background is doing magazine shoots as well as website content and viral promotions.. means I can take the picture..edit it.. get it into a magazine and when your ready to launch your site, I'll get you web traffic which is the modern way to start and maintain your modelling career.

Nothing like working with a professional who you are comfortable working with and knows curves.

I appreciate you so much for working with me! You work ethic, personality and visual is unmatched
Just letting you know a little bit of my success since you took my pictures only a week ago!!! Not only have I been contacted by several photographers wanting to take my pictures, I was contacted by an agency today that wants to meet when I'm back home in Texas next week to see if I want to sign with their agency. Then later in the afternoon I was contacted by a WA state famous rapper who wanted me to be in his music video after seeing your pictures on IG_ you da man!
I finally had the honor to appear in @venusofwillendorfchronicles by @photosbyphelps (the amazing photographer James Phelps).I feel like the goddess winds were blowing in this shot.James just has a special talent of creating depth and life to a photo!If you're ever in the Baltimore area, or in need of amazing pictures totally worth flying out for, reach out to him.

On this day 2017. You cant tell by this pic that it was my very first shoot and I was nervous as hell but I put myself out there ready to work and learn. All of my life I've heard I should model but at 40 I had no plans to pursue it. I just wanted a shoot to say I did it for my bucketlist. I had no idea a couple years later I would be walking into a store to buy magazines I'm featured in. Life is funny that way so keep pushing.
PRICING: Please contact me and tell me about the shoot your envisioning or the project your looking to have me be a part of . Then I can give you a price based off the amount of shoot time involved/post-production of images/location..etc. Every shoot is different so I don't believe in having a set price list.
