Be My Muse with Sam Viss
Oh, Sam. Where do I even start? We were introduced through my collaboration with Rendezvous Magazine, and we just immediately clicked! We threw a few ideas around, and it turned out that she wanted to be apart of the Be My Muse series. We shot on a state beach in Malibu, and boy was it an experience! She had shot there with another photographer before, and when I looked at the photos, it was definitely somewhere I wanted to shoot. Unfortunately, we didn't anticipate high tide, and most of the beach was just ocean. That being said, that didn't stop us from getting amazing shots!
Sam is very energetic, and something about her just makes you want to create something beautiful. The conversation just seemed to flow, and before you know it, we were joking around, laughing at the huge waves that were destroying us. I hope you enjoy the interview, and the photos ;)
OTC: What’s your name?
SV: My full name is Samantha Denae Visscher
OTC: How old are you?
SV: I am 21 years old
OTC: How long have you been modeling?
SV: I got signed when I was 16 so almost 5 years!
OTC: What inspires you?
SV: Absolutely everything. If you walk around the city and keep your eyes open you’ll see that there is beauty in everything around you.
OTC: What’s your opinion on Instagram forcing women to censor their nipples?
SV: I think a woman’s body is a beautiful thing and it’s that woman’s right to decide whether or not she wants her nipples shown to the public. Instagram’s censorship should not be the deciding factor.
OTC: What physical qualities do you look for in a man?
SV: He has to be absolutely hilarious. Any man that can make me cry because I’m laughing so hard is a man that I want to be around.
OTC: What defines a “sexy man” according to you?
SV: I think what makes a man sexy isn’t necessarily his physical attributes. I think it’s very sexy when a man is confident.
OTC: Have you ever used a dating app? If so, which ones?
SV: I can’t lie, I’ve totally had a Tinder.
OTC: Were any of the dates successful?
SV: I never actually went on a date with anyone from Tinder!
OTC: Do you like cuddling when you lie in bed?
SV: To say I like cuddling would be an understatement.
OTC: What do you think you look sexiest in?
SV: Whatever I feel most myself in. A simple sundress with a pair of converse or just in a bikini by the ocean.
OTC: Describe the sexiest clothes you ever wore and why
SV: I absolutely love lingerie. I think the sexiest thing I’ve worn was a few different lingerie sets for a photoshoot I did. I’m honestly so excited for the day that I get married so I can buy bridal lingerie.
OTC: What do you wear to bed?
SV: Most of the time just a big band t-shirt or if I’m dating someone I’ll wear his sweatshirts to bed. It makes me feel safe.
OTC: Do you like boxers or briefs?
SV: I like Boxer-briefs! It’s a boxer and a brief...what more could you want?!
OTC: What’s your secret move to turn a guy on?
SV: Well if I told you it wouldn’t be a secret anymore...
OTC: What turns you on?
SV: When a guy kisses my neck.
OTC: Have you ever had two boyfriends at the same time?
SV: No way. I can barely keep up with my own life. I’m stressed out just thinking about that scenario!
OTC: Have you ever made out with someone that you wished you never made out with?
SV: No, I think everything happens for a reason so I don’t like to look at things with a sense of regret.
OTC: Have you ever kissed a girl before?
SV: I don’t kiss and tell ;)
OTC: Do you like talking dirty?
SV: I’m honestly such an awkward person I would just start giggling.
OTC: Tell me about your first kiss
SV: 6th grade field Trip to the water park. Truth or dare.
OTC: Do you think you’re a good kisser?
SV: Yes I think so
OTC: Describe the perfect kiss
SV: A kiss that is unexpected and in the moment.
OTC: What’s the boldest thing you’ve done over texting?
SV: I’m definitely an in person type of person so if I have something bold to say I like to say it directly to you. Texting is so impersonal.
OTC: Where’s the sexiest place for someone to kiss you?
SV: I wouldn’t say this is the sexiest place but I love when a guy kisses my forehead.
OTC: Have you ever been skinny dipping?
SV: I grew up going to the Lake every summer with my friends back home and we always found a way to get ourselves into trouble. We formed a group called the dare devils club so our summers consisted of skinny dipping, cliff jumping and sneaking out. I’ve always been a little bit of a wild child.
OTC: Have you ever gone a full day without wearing underwear?
SV: Oh but(t) of course ;)
OTC: Do you like it when men are aggressive and rough, or gentle?
SV: I like an aggressive man that knows how to treat a woman right.
OTC: Have you ever been in a sex shop?
SV: Yes! I was helping my best friend shop for her sister’s bachelorette party!
OTC: Have you ever had/given a lap dance?
SV: I’m very tall and clumsy. I feel like if I gave someone a lap dance I would end up falling over.
OTC: Has someone ever told you they loved you and you didn’t love them back?
OTC: Have you ever felt stupid on a date?
SV: I can’t say that I have. I’ve always been a goofy person and for some reason I never really get embarrassed. I honestly love awkward moments.
OTC: Where is your favorite place to go on a date?
SV: Anywhere fun. Dinner dates are nice but I would much rather go bowling or go to a sports game. I’m definitely a little bit of a tomboy.
OTC: Where can someone find you on the weekend?
SV: During the summer you can find me anywhere near the ocean and during the winter you can find me snowboarding.
OTC: Where is the best place to try to pick you up?
SV: Probably at a concert of festival. I’m always at my happiest when I’m around music so you can guarantee that I’ll be in a good mood!
OTC: Where is the worst?
SV: When I’m out with my friends at a club or something. On the occasion that I do go to a place like the club I’m usually just there to just have fun with my girls and odds are I probably can’t even hear what you’re saying.
