The pleasure is all mine! I am a self-portraitist, photographer, and occasional alternative model. I’m originally from East County, San Diego, California, but I currently reside in Los Olivos, California (Santa Barbara County).
What is your proudest achievement so far?
I’m proud of all the artwork I’ve created on my own and have it be as well received as it has been over the years. I never sought the path of making any of this my profession, so to have had the opportunities I’ve had and be able to inspire others on both a creative and personal level means the world to me.
Does being a photographer give you a different perspective when you are posing for photos as a model?
Yes and no. I’ve been a photographer long before I became a model. I still don’t consider myself much of one as I shoot most of my own portraits. However, being both in front and behind the lens has greatly helped me when I have clients to shoot.
I’m able to offer them more insight and guidance when it comes to what I’m looking for (and other photographers) in a composition and posing. I try to utilize all the skills I’ve learned and help others through my own experiences.
How is a typical day like for you?
Maintaining my sanity! I work freelance, so there’s all that that entails as well as preparing to move to Germany, ideally by January 2019! My husband is stationed there, and I’m working on establishing new clientele in Europe as well as making sure I stay as up to date as possible online with my modeling and photography work here in the States.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
To hear that I have inspired or empowered someone else.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
Outside of my work, I really enjoy singing and have actually been working on my technique for over a year now. It’s nothing I want to pursue as a future career, it’s just something I enjoy as an outlet from the chaos and I want to be decent at it.
If you could be a fictional character, who will it be?
I wouldn’t, haha! The idea of being anything or anyone other than me makes me uncomfortable.
What is the lamest or funniest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I could write a book on this.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Britney. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Of course! Thank you for your interest in better understanding me and my work! I would classify “sexy” as embodying what makes YOU feel comfortable and confident in your skin. There’s a power in embracing the light and darkness in ourselves.
