Sunrise Life - beyond skin deep conversations with freelance nude models

Traveling nude models sharing stories (the fun, the creepy, and the awesome experiences!) and confiding in each other. Everyone - including models- struggles with something; be it social awkwardness, financial hardship, shame, anxiety, toxic relationships etc. The purpose of this podcast is to bring people closer together in understanding, expose our vulnerabilities, and share entertaining escapades.

Katlyn told story after story that just had me absolutely rolling! Their energy was so enthusiastic and fun throughout this whole show, the hour went by so fast! Katlyn is a professional painter as well as a freelance model, and paints for a few months at a time, then switches gears to modeling throughout the year. 
I felt like I resonated with a lot of Katlyn's crazy stories, especially when they mentioned sobriety. The camera lens can be a fun way to interact with the world for people who are getting accustomed to certain social situations again. 
I promise you will be on the edge of your seat for this one!!! 
Katlyn has an art show June 6, 2024!! Check it out if you're in Seattle:

Ivory Flame has been modeling for 18 years, and her image has become a legacy online! She is very much a chameleon, sharing fashion, avante garde, gothic, artistic nude, fine art and pre-raphaelite style imagery on her portfolio and social links. 
We had such an amazing conversation and talked about so many things, dating back to the golden era of "hot or not dot com" to model mayhem and to today's social landscape of sharing our work and connecting with each other.
She was very vulnerable in sharing her experience where a photographer she trusted truly took advantage of her trust... the police had to get involved and everything! It definitely a story worth listening to, I sat there with my jaw hitting the floor as she was telling me about it! 
Ivory Flame and I also reminisced about our amazing experience working with Beth Creedon as our life coach! As freelancers, it's often helpful to have someone guide us into our best versions of ourselves.

Born and raised in Czech Republic, Veronica LaVery moved to the US at age 17. She said she was never into makeup and styling but when someone on Myspace wanted to do a photoshoot with her, she ended up falling in love with it! 
Veronica has been modeling for over a decade and has built up her career quite a bit over time, so much that it seems like she might be "too hot for social media" platforms! Youtube demonitized her channel that used to make a decent amount of income for her, and her instagram that had over 300k was also deplatformed, yet Veronica continues to model and be successful despite the internet's challenges.

Emma Sirus is a beautiful glamour model who is also a licensed cosmetologist. When the pandemic hit, her makeup artistry was put on hold so she decided to find other avenues of income. Before she became a well known model, she was first an adult star and worked for an agency. 
Emma works hard at her marketing, and that's how was drawn to her for this interview! She recently underwent a breast enhancement surgery and at the time of this interview, she is still in the early stages of recovery- so the world has not yet been graced with seeing her new boobs yet! How exciting :) Emma shared about the controversial comments she had been getting on social media about her decision to make the cup upgrade, and the drama she is dealing with is unimaginable!
Much like many of us traveling freelance models, Emma has also endured some extremely uncomfortable situations - especially some instances where photographers have made audacious sexual requests! Find out what happened by listening to the full episode.

You can learn along with me what's been going on with Cat Ross, and she's quite fascinating! We can all relate. 
She is a super fashionable model based and actress in NYC who maintains a love for creating evocative imagery with like minded artists.

The Show Host: Kristy Jessica

Living and breathing nude freelance modeling and all the fun, freaky, and interesting quirks involved drives Kristy to continue finding ways to connect on a deeper level with other humans. 

Before the advent of social media, most traveling freelance models were like lone wolves- battling from shoot to shoot, comparing themselves to others, and trying to weed whack their own path and reinvent the wheel. Now that we can be connected, we are reveling in our similarities and lifting each other up. 

"Sunrise Life" is an expression that references how often we need to be up early to catch that beautiful morning light. For many of us, this lifestyle has made a deep impact.
