Mayhem # 641327
My name is Lauren Babrée (pronounced Baw-bray). Besides modeling, I am also an actress, singer, and dancer. I am bi-coastal working in Los Angeles and New York City. I am a die hard New Yorker, and just recently moved to lazy flaky LA la land (on 10-31-2014), but am back and forth working on both coasts as much as I can, especially since 99.999% of my shoots are booked in New York where people are serious about working. But by all means if you live in LA, contact me ONLY if you're the exception... which comes to my next statement below...
***PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME!!!!*** - PLEASE don't contact me unless you are serious. Next, I do NOT do TFP unless in very rare circumstances where I need a specific look for a headshot or for my comp card. 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. 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.
I do NOT book via phone unless I specifically give you my number. Please contact me on here ONLY otherwise. There is no way I'd remember everything talked about if I talked to everyone on the phone each day. I need a solid record of what's been said for reference.
Also, please photographers, if you don't know the difference between a model, porn star, and prostitute, I suggest not even messaging me at all. There is a HUGE difference, and trying to get a legit model to do these other 2 acts for you is just uncalled for. If that were the case, people would not be calling themselves models. Those other 2 categorizes exist for a reason, because they are completely different! Don't try it with me (you know exactly what I'm talking about). I will screenshot whatever you said and block/report you. If this happens at the shoot, I will end the shoot, never work with you again, and make sure every body who I know knows about you (and I know a lot of legit models and photographers). I love what I do, but I will not have sex with anyone or do sexual acts/favors for anyone to get to the top and/or get great pictures. Just because this is model mayhem doesn't mean you can pull that with me. Modeling and acting are my passions and that is IT. I was raised from a very good upper middle class family who put an intelligent head on my shoulders. I don't need to sulk down to trash level sex acts. Find your nearest strip club to do that at. Also, this is not a dating website. I have never had this problem in NY, but in LA, people don't want to work with me if I am in a relationship. That is just weird. I am very happy in my relationship, and if you can't be professional enough for me to just pose for you and respect my relationship, it's very strange. I have never had a problem letting a relationship get in the way of my work because I am a professional and only surround myself with such others, so jealousy is all I can assume, and again, it's weird. I will give you great photos single or relationship. This is what I do for a living. Its fun, but also business, and I usually end up friends with everybody I work with anyway. I have never asked to bring anybody on a shoot, because I feel out good vibes beforehand, and if I get a bad vibe, I just don't go at all.
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. All my friends on here are people I know and have shot with, and my top 5 friends on my page that are shown are my favorite photographers that I always shoot with in NY. That also speaks for tags. I really would only appreciate tags from people I've worked with as a testimonial. I delete most others.
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:
I am 3rd generation born 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.
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.
Somewhere I've never shot before where I would love to sometime is near the Hollywood sign in LA and Times Square in 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 photo in my profile picture is edited by me, (along with most of the photos in my portfolio actually) 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.
