I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. I currently live in the enormous (but not very well known outside of California) city of San Jose. I recently made the jump from corporate America to full time freelancer, and it has been one of the most rewarding decisions I’ve ever made.
Most days you can find me shooting, trying to book future shoots, and working on self care and self improvement. In my free time, I love seeing live music, hiking, playing with my adorable cats, and spending 8-10 hrs a day looking at memes, plus another 1-2 hrs per day trying to decide what to watch on Netflix.
What inspired you to get into modeling?
I was 14 years old and was sick in bed one day watching entire seasons of America’s Next Top Model on VH1. I remember admiring the girls on the show and dreaming of one day when it would be my turn to rock the runway. I told my parents the news about my newfound career path, and they immediately shut me down. So eventually I forgot about my dream, and quietly kept watching from the sidelines.
Then literally 10 years later, a friend of mine asked me to pose for him for a photography school project. Oh, and by the way, it was nude! I was super hesitant and shy, but decided to go for it because I trusted his abilities and that he wouldn’t post the photos online. I ended up loving the shots, and he introduced me to Model Mayhem. The rest is history.
P.S. I did try out for Top Model a couple of years ago and was turned down during the interview phase. Their loss!
Do you have a preferred genre to model?
I really enjoy creative, moody nude art concepts. I also want to get more into beauty and editorial looks, but those opportunities are harder to come by in the freelance world.
Which is your most challenging photoshoot experience so far?
Probably shooting in cold conditions and not letting the discomfort show in my facial expressions. Another challenge is standing your ground when unprofessional photographers ask you to go beyond your limits or comfort level on set. Luckily the vast majority of my experiences have been positive.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a party animal are you?
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had the time?
Well it’s not that I haven’t had the time, but the resources…I want to travel the country in an RV, and then fly to exotic destinations around the world, shooting and documenting my travels along the way.
If you could have a super power, what will it be?
The ability to make snacks appear at a moment’s notice, and then eat them without gaining weight.
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Probably the countless DMs I get asking for free nudes.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Charlotte. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think sexiness is more of a feeling than anything else. Sometimes you’re just feelin yourself, and you exude sexiness, even if you’re dressed comfy with no makeup on. Comfy sexiness is the best!
