About Me

Experienced and distinctive glamour, art, and commercial model with a particular love for the romantic, ethereal, and anything where I end up covered in paint.

**Please direct all business inquiries for paid bookings and projects to either my email or my IG direct messages so that I see them right away. TFP work is very limited, but it never hurts to ask if you have something in mind.

I am based in the Rockford, Illinois area but can travel to you within a reasonable distance. I do not charge additional travel fees for this. Longer traveling distances are negotiable per project. I can assist in locating a studio space within your budget and aesthetic as needed, and I am also working on being able to provide my own studio space in the near future - stay tuned!

I have experience modeling several genres (lingerie and boudoir, glamour, artistic implied, swimwear, fashion, editorial, beauty and makeup, pinup, fantasy, print, commercial and lifestyle, bodypaint, artistic and conceptual, posing for paintings, etc.) I have had the honor and pleasure of modeling for several wonderful artists and brands including 1-800 Flowers, Babes & Big Rigs, Josie Fox Couture, and more. I have also recently walked the runway for Chicago designers Mario & Jorge (a great feat I am very honored to have as a petite model).

In addition to multiple years of modeling, I have growing experience in voice over and acting roles including extra work in music videos and commercials, a lead in short film project "Are You My Mother?" by Future Memory Media and the Goldie B. Floberg Center, and voice acting role as the character "Jelly" in Aaron J. Davis' animated film "Lovebugs" (coming Summer of 2023).

Implied photos must be discussed prior to the shoot and exact terms / photo goals agreed upon. No nudity (implied is fine but it must be implied), no extreme gore (fake blood is fine, most dark and eerie themes are fine, scenes depicting graphic violence are not), no overtly sexual or "adult" (pornographic) themes.

I can happily provide all makeup, hair, and an expansive wardrobe.

If you'd like to get a feel for my personality before working together, please come say hi on IG or the YouTube channel you can find in my bio there. To summarize, I want us to have fun creating beautiful images/video together (I want you to love our work and have a great time shooting together), and I also want to work hard to give you the best possible results (I take my work ethic and professionalism very seriously). You can also view my modeling website which features my updated portfolio and comp card.

I currently have a mid-thigh length pair of white goose feather angel wings and a realistic magenta colored latex mermaid tail ready to model. Both are entirely handmade by myself. The tail can be safely submerged in water but cannot be swam in. I'm always wrapping myself into art projects so I will add more wearable fantasy props and cosplays to my wardrobe as I go, but I also happily consider custom projects if you have an amazing idea you'd like brought to life, like the handmade and hand-dyed ombre scarlet angel wings I created for Terry McCue.

I love creating with other models. If you are a photographer looking for suggestions I have several highly talented, experienced female and male models of various looks who I have worked with before and can enthusiastically and sincerely recommend. Boudoir, some implied, and flirty and/or romantic sets (please discuss concept and posing prior to the shoot) is okay so long as all models involved are comfortable and agreed to this. If you are a model looking to pose together, I would love to hear from you.

I have hourly, half day, and full day rates available that can be flexible to your exact project - I will always do my best to work with you and your project's budget and needs. Please reach out to me with as many details regarding your project as you can to receive a quote.

I look forward to working with you! :)

"What a great model to work with. Melody showed up exactly on time and ready to start right away. Through prior communications she expressed her boundaries very clearly. Melody has a way that she can change her image from the innocent girl next door to that of a sexy young woman out on the town in a single shoot. She is full of energy, suggestions, and ideas to improvise on the spot. Can not wait to work again in the future" Read less

"During the late morning to early afternoon, I had a delightful photo session with the lovely and talented Melody Pope. She was punctual and totally prepared, which allowed us to start within 10 minutes of her walking in the door. She takes direction very well and politely asks questions about any comment or issue she doesn't understand. She is also very good at defining her personal comfort boundaries without sounding judgemental. I found these two qualities very helpful because Visual Storytelling occasionally involves approaching gray areas which require that minute or two of carefully discussing the physical and emotional needs of the individual in front of the Photo or Video Camera. If I have another project I feel she would be good for, I would happily hire Melody Pope again." Read less

"In our journey through this life, we may meet up with artistic souls like our own. When that happens, take the opportunity to create something wonderful! This past weekend was such an occasion. Melody is not only a model but an avid painter and does what she can to rescue/rehabilitate our four legged friends. She joined me in boudoir shoot and the images turned out amazing!" Read less
