My name is Lauren Babrée (pronounced Baw-bray). I am a singer, actress, dancer and model. I am bi-coastal working in New York City and Los Angeles.
***PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME!!!!*** - First off please don't contact me unless you are serious. Next, I do NOT do TFP unless you are a high fashion photographer that is agency worthy and could easily or has been published on a national ad in commercial print, fashion catalog, maxim magazine, sports illustrated, etc, or a really good headshot photographer and can use your images to book legit work with agencies. I have no problem getting work, in fact this is my only job by choice because I make enough income off of it so PLEASE NO EXCEPTIONS WHAT SO EVER!!! Please don't waste my or your time by asking or dissing my photos for whatever reason you have to try and get me to shoot for free with you if you don't fit the above requirements, aint happening!!! This is my career, so I really can't work for free when I've made lots of sacrifices for it already.
I've been modeling since the year 2000 and do this as a professional career solely since 2008. Most of my work is through legit casting sources and agencies, so I don't feel the need to upgrade to add all my photos, but I have lots of photos, so no need for TFP to have any more, unless for reasons stated in the above paragraph. But otherwise, if you'd like to hire me, then we can chat. I respond very promptly since this is my career so you will always get professionalism and speedy replies that same day or the next from me unless I am extremely busy and I expect the same in return especially if its the day before the shoot and I still don't have specific information such as time and exact location. I need all details as soon as possible and expect timely replies.
I don't have an exact set rate that I always go by. Please provide your rate of compensation for the project in the email. Please also include all information so there's no going back and forth on what the project entails, specific location of shoot, date, time, duration, and anything else I should know. Thanks.
If you have a specific type of shoot in mind and don't see examples of those type of photos on here, you can always message me and I can see if I have anything like that to email you. Once I have emailed you, unless it is something really specific, please do not keep asking me for photos. I do not have the time to send you numerous amounts of photos, nor should I have to once I have already sent quite a bunch. It is quite clear you can see how I look. Don't be greedy please.
Also, if you cancel a shoot, I will not reschedule with you. There's too many flakes out there and I don't have the time to deal with those types of people. Even though this is model mayhem, please be professional and respect people's time they may have set aside to book that day with you when they could have booked something else that day.
I don't mind booking in advance, so please don't message me saying you're interested in scheduling who knows when in the future but don't want to schedule yet. There's no point to messaging me if you're not ready so either just message me when you're ready to schedule, or let's book a date on the calendar in the future coming weeks or months.
Also please no drive by friend requests. I will assume you want to work with me if you friend request me, in which I will message you to make such arrangements.
I love what I do, and unless you are a creep, we will hit it off and have an amazing shoot, and I have plenty of references that can verify that if you need. Sorry if all this information I wrote sounds harsh, but unfortunately for some people you need to be very direct lol

Other frequently asked personal questions and fun information:
My background is American, but my great grand parents on my mom's side are from Norway and Germany, and on my dad's side are Czechoslovakian, so I am a European mix, but an all American girl.
I've lived in New York City since September 2004 (almost 10 years), but I'm originally from a small town in New England near the Boston area (I won't specify where exactly on here though for the world to see lol).
My natural hair color is blonde, the color you see in my photos, and I do not dye my hair at all, nor do I wear colored contacts. I am a natural blonde and blue eyed girl.
I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs, and especially golden retrievers. I have a golden retriever actually and he is available for photo shoots or filming too.
I was a gymnast since I was a kid and still know how to do a back handspring.
My favorite types of food are anything Spanish or Latin American, and Asian fusion food like Japanese and Thai, but I try and limit these occasions and keep to a healthy diet of protein and vegetables.
I walk 4 miles every day for an hour and also do 100 crunches a day as my workout.
I want to shoot on the Staten Island Ferry with a view of Manhattan in the background before I leave NYC.
I have a great eye for which photos are best from the shoot, and I edit a lot of my photos on my own. I am a great editor, so if you aren't great at editing, you can always send the photos to me after a shoot and I can pick out which ones I think are best if you can't decide (I actually prefer to pick them out myself if I'm allowed since a lot of the times the photos I pick out, most agree with me they love, and a lot of times the photos I get sent from the photographers a lot of people including myself wouldn't agree are the best ones, not sure why, but a clash in eye happens a lot between model and audience preference and photographer, but usually the audience preference is right, which is also the models preference lol) and edit them and send back to you. The 2 photos in my profile picture are both edited by me, (along with most of the photos in my portfolio actually, but those are my most recent edit) and look a lot different than how it was sent to me straight from the camera, so that gives you an idea of the skill level I have.
