My name is Lexi Campbell and I’ll be 22 years of age in April 2014. I started modeling in December 2012 based on a friend of mine referral. Modeling is the last thing I would have imagine doing because I was the freckle face skinny and pale girl in school that was flat in all places. I’ve always had a passion for the arts such as photography and designing clothing. At the age of 5 I was making dolls clothing and it just progressed through the years and around age 10 I grabbed my dads camera and started taking pictures of just about anything.
Photography came pretty easy because I’m an artist also in drawing so I almost saw the two as quite similar. If there was a vision that I had I would capture it either with a pencil and paper or through the lens of a camera and process it through film. So it all brings me to the presence of me modeling today and designing my own lingerie to wear.
