About Me

My name is Chandra, also known as the sleepy cat. I have 7+ years experience modeling in a variety of genres. Due to COVID, other work and life circumstances I took most of 2019 and 2020 off from modeling and traveling, but as of the beginning of 2021 I am so excited to be shooting again! Modeling, art, fashion, and especially working with other artists is a passion of mine as well as traveling. I am so grateful for the opportunity now to resume this work full-time!

The fastest way to reach me...

DIRECT MESSAGE me on Instagram [ @ sleepycathours ]

or EMAIL me [email protected]

I apologize for any & all delays in getting back to messages, especially on here! This website is hard to access when traveling and especially from my phone. The quickest way to reach me is an Instagram DM. Otherwise I promise I will get back to you as soon as I can.



I will be based in ALBANY, NY for the rest of this winter. Shoots at or nearer to this location are obviously preferred and will take priority, but I am willing to shoot in NEW YORK CITY and expand into any/all of the NORTHEAST (given notice and with travel fees covered).

I am staying with the well-known photographer CARNEY MALONE at his studio spaces outside of ALBANY (near Troy). Studio access to shoot is available here for select photographers with good references and portfolios. Let me know if you would like to shoot at where I am and we can likely arrange something! See my portfolio for many examples of my work shot here and with Carney Malone.

My rate starts at $100/hour, which includes all styles up to art nude, and for select erotica my rate is $150/hour. For all shoots I have a 2 hour booking minimum. If the shoot requires more than 1 hour of travel from ALBANY, NY I request those fees to be covered as well, including overnight stay(s) if necessary. 

I love working with other models and frequently book shoots with 1-3 other models in the area. Ask me about this, we offer discounted rates for group shoots!

I will have a variety of wardrobe including shoes, lingerie, and accessories with me. I am up for shooting almost anything, just ask! I love variety and new concepts. Please be as clear as possible with shoot details.  PAID WORK ONLY.

☀️ SOUTHWEST ☀️ 2020 ☀️

At the end of Summer 2020 I moved to ARIZONA from TEXAS (where I had lived for 3 years, first in Austin and then San Antonio). I spent the next 12 months living between Phoenix and Tucson, up through the first half of 2021. I also began modeling full-time again, focusing on art modeling and exploring the Southwest, at the beginning of 2021.  For 6 months I shot around ARIZONA and NEW MEXICO, in beautiful desert and mountains! I consider *Tucson, AZ* one of my home bases and also occasionally return to TEXAS.

OTHER TRAVEL 💛 2022....

I have loose plans to visit FLORIDA (for the first time) in the beginning of the year with another New England model, and CALIFORNIA as well as the PACIFIC NORTHWEST (areas I am from originally and where I began modeling) at some point. I am also open to new destinations! Every year is always a new adventure.

To get an idea of what I am up to follow my Instagram @sleepycathours. I post much more content on there plus all new & recent looks. I love to document my travels, lifestyle, and lots of inspiration as often as I can with my posts and stories…
