My modeling name is Vanilla7 Stick.
Photography handle is Shooting Stick.
I make things as well. I'm a mixed media type of girl.
An aspiring artist of all kinds; I think it's important to have something to look toward in life and keep you going when the days get rough and the cat naps aren't enough. Art is a passion, and it comes in all mediums and manifests itself in all areas of life. Your life is only as good as you make it, so fill it with the things you enjoy.
This is more than just a job, a fetish, a trend, or a role to play. This is a part of who I am. I can be a cute kitten or an impenetrable queen, but always a very social kitty. We're only here for a limited time, let's have fun, get along, and make the world a more beautiful place.
"My goal in life is not to be rich or famous or have all the love in the world. It is to earn a living doing what I love, be well known amongst people that share my interests and goals, and love everyone that deserves it."
~ Paid shoots are the first ones accepted and the most appreciated.
~ Trade shoots are -always- a good thing! I am willing to negotiate trade for any of the following things: travel expenses, products (made or bought), items on my wish lists (found here: - http://www.V7Stick.com/Selling.html -), food, tattoos (more info in tattoos section below) and even art that catches my eye. If I like it or it can benefit me in some way, chances are good that I will be happy to trade.
~ If you're an artist that wants to get your product out there, I would love to model for you and/or do your photography. Contact me! I have different package deals for companies of all sizes, no matter how small. The biggest enjoyments in life often come from the smallest things. ^_~
~ I am often asked about my limits. I do not do sexually explicit. I am not a prude though, and discussing ideas that tiptoe around the edges of my limits is something I actually enjoy. Always pushing the envelope, but never opening it. I am a right proper lady, damn it.
~ You should be open to negotiating some kind of usage license. I'm not stingy with my photos (as a photographer or a model) and you shouldn't be either. We both helped create the image, we should both get the credit. Exceptions are made, of course, but generally I want to be able to show the progress I've made in my career. You should want the same thing, so you should understand.

I would love to be your walking canvas. *purrr*
