United Kingdom, England, Bristol
LONDON AVAILABILITY - WEDNESDAY 19th JULY AND THURSDAY 20th JULY -
About me - I am an extremely professional, open minded, experienced and creative model - I have a lovely, curvy and petite body and adore any opportunity to adorn myself in different outfits and make-up.
I enjoy painting and am involved in a number of creative projects, so I will definitely bring something a little different to our shoot and come prepared with plenty of ideas. I love exploring all aspects of the modelling process, as I am also a photographer myself, especially any opportunity to create truly unique and original images.
I also life model and am available to work with other artists, for drawing sessions. I can, if needed provide tution. Due to this I am used to posing infront of larger groups of people, so more than comfortable working with groups of photographers and with other models.
I work at all levels and by this I mean from fashion to adult. I am very comfortable in my own skin, have a fresh and natural complexion and no scars, tatoos or piercings and just as relaxed working clothed as in more erotic or explicit poses.
I have a varied and colourful wardrobe, to suit a wide range of looks and genres and have a passion for make up, so will always come prepared with a beautifully natural look. I am however a blank canvas and happy to get messy or try out bolder and more extreme make-up and hair styles – even body paint! My hair is long and in great condition so can take a variety of up or down do's.

I have extensive experience as both model, artist and photographer. Here are some of my references:
'I had a most enjoyable and productive shoot with Melumi last weekend.
From the moment I first contacted her she showed a real interest in my ideas that continued throughout the whole shoot. She was keen to help me get the most from the shoot and her enthusiasm and willingness to help me interpret my ideas produced some images that I am very pleased with.
I have no hesitation in recommending Melumi to any photographer. A collaboration with Melumi will enhance your portfolio and leave you full of ideas for further shoots'.
'Melumi is a superb model. I had a great shoot with her at home. She poses brilliantly and really helped me to get some great shots. She has a lovely personality and is confident in front of the camera.
Pre shoot coms were fine. I will definitely work with her again and have no hesitation in recommending Melumi.'

'An absolutely brilliant session with a stunningly beautiful model who is also a very accomplished artist. I can't recommend Melumi enough - everything was perfect.
Pre-comms were clear and efficient, we agreed a shoot at her home which is really easy to find - and, if you are coming from the Midlands, much quicker to get to than you might expect.
I had a super-friendly welcome from Melumi and her partner, including an endless supply of coffee! Her home is ideal for a variety of photo and art options, with large, well-lit rooms, excellent natural light, plus I was given the use of her own professional-level lighting which really added to my scope.
Her poses and expression are superb, both for drawing and photography - we did both, and both went really well. Undoubtedly one of my most enjoyable shoots with some fascinating and challenging concepts. Melumi is not just a model but a real artistic contributor to the creative process - do take time to work with her. You'll be surprised and delighted!'
'Not just a beautiful blue eyed blonde, but more importantly a true in depth, amiable personality. Loved being in her company, (when she wasn't in the kitchen making me tea/coffee) Loved having my portrait painted by her, (would love even a part of her talent). Portrait was (not quite finished yet) made me to look reasonable handsome and still a very good likeness. Thank you so much Melumi. Lovely, lovely day for me and available for you, when asked. Highly recommended and very much appreciated. Arthur'
