How do you approach these intimate shoots?


I’d always enjoy the shoot when there is a good atmosphere and amazing people around because that’s when I’m feeling most comfortable and that’s how we can get some great shots together.


What do you hope to achieve through your modelling?


I’ve got many goals in life and modelling is something which can help me to achieve all my dreams I think.


What are your perceptions of beauty?


Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself – inside and out.


Do you think there’s a way for photographers/the industry to capture the female body in a more empowering way?


I think we should focus more on a smile as it’s the most beautiful curve on the woman’s body.


What is your best advice to those entering the industry?


Never stop doing your best … just because someone didn’t give you the credit you deserved doesn’t mean you’re not worth it.
