Hi! My name is Makayla.

I am from a small town in central Florida.

I have since lived in New York, Mexico City, and Australia.

I now live between Miami, Florida and Turks & Caicos Islands, in the North-Eastern Caribbean.

My modeling career began at 17 years of age, and I have dabbled in many roles in the business. 

I was a commercial actress and runway model in the early days with BMG Models. 
I also had a short time in commercial print representing The Face Models in Mexico. 

Since 2018 I have focused in on freelance portrait, glamour, and art modeling, traveling all over the globe to diversify my network. 

My travels frequently bring me to large cities across the US, Europe, Australia, and Asia. 

My favorite places to visit for work in the United States are San Francisco, DC, New York City, Dallas, Chicago and Tampa. 

During the pandemic all of my travels were suspended and I started shooting remotely from my home with photographers from around the world. 

Check out my Remote section to learn about how these unique shoots work. 

My other interests include wellness, socializing with family and friends, all things food, skincare, and I love my other business The Mermaid Experience

Mermaid X is a custom Destination Photography Experience in Turks And Caicos Islands. 

We have expertly crafted these vacations to incorporate creating impressive content, honing your skills, and enjoying an unforgettable vacation.
