My name is Vanessa Martinez. Over the last year and a half I have discovered my passion for modeling. I love being in front of the camera and find myself to be extremely outgoing and an extrovert. I mainly focus on swimwear, fitness, high fashion and lifestyle but I am also open to other creative projects as well! I am not currently signed to any form of management or agency, however my options are open. I am 5’5”,recently changed my hair color from black to brunette, have naturally tanned skin, with light brown eyes.

What got you started into modeling?

As a young girl, I always aspired to be a model some day.

What did you dream of becoming as an adult when you were young?

I’ve always been infatuated with teeth and so for that reason I wanted to be an orthodontist to help others share their perfect smile.

Do you have a “day job”?

I am the sales manager of a high end sunglass boutique located in the heart of Coconut Grove.

What has been your most memorable shoot to date?

I try my hardest to make every shoot memorable as I love to have fun and be silly so I enjoy every shoot.

Do your family and friends support you in your modeling?

My family is my biggest support system when it comes to anything I do in life.

How do you spend your free time?

During my free time, I focus on my body and soul by going to the gym. Being fit is another of my passions.

Tell us about your pre shoot preparations.

Before every shoot, I clear my mind and focus on being creative. I love to think of ideas and concepts of how I would like to portray myself.

What do you eat on an average day?

Being in this industry, I am very strict when it comes to my everyday eating habits. I really enjoy ground turkey and some lean chicken with brown rice and some veggies.
