Devaná Lux was born August 6th, 1992 in Baltimore, MD. Showing an interest in modeling in her younger years, her family encouraged her to begin. She was briefly represented by a local modeling agency. But her main passions at the time were music, drawing and other forms of art. As she got older, towards her high school years, she developed an obsession with the alternative culture and modeling scene. Growing up in a more orthodox family, she unwantingly stood out as the individualist. A free thinker adorned with brightly colored hair and an evolving collection of body modifications. Her mission as an artist, in any media, was always to show that despite what is commonly accepted, there is much more to beauty and a person. She’s very into fashion but acknowledges that her appearance doesn’t define who she is or anyone else. After graduating high school she got her first camera to pursue her photography passion. In 2010 she started as an intern under another photographer and created her own small business Something Bittersweet Photography. Specializing in alternative model photography, she started off taking photos of friends to get comfortable with the camera and also to learn about modeling herself by directing a majority of the shoots. She began majoring in photography in college in 2011 to gain more knowledge about the subject. The more she learned about photography, the more comfortable it made her about becoming a model. In 2012 she began modeling for aspiring photographer friends. Her first photo shoot had her sold on wanting to try her hand at modeling again. Her otherworldliness and ever-changing style gives photographers an interesting subject to photograph every time. She is passionate about art, beauty, and creation and is ready to take over the alternative modeling scene with her versatile and unique look that leaves her capable of doing many different styles of modeling. She has dreams of one day branching out into acting and modeling handmade and vintage clothing for designers and webstores.

“If it wasn’t for Devaná Lux Anaved I would not do half the things i do today! She is extremely inspiring to me as a photographer and as a model. Devaná is professional and very creative as a photographer and MUA. Her style simply cannot be defined and she’ll be sure to add something to your portfolio that you don’t already have. And if you are new to the whole modeling scene she is great at giving out pointers to help make you look your best!
