About MeI have fabulous, curly hair. I love fashion. I adore art.
Let's get the basics out of the way:
Tatoos: NO TATTOOS! Shocking, right?
Scars: I have two small scars, about an inch long. One is on my right side, and one is on the top of my right butt cheek. There is not much discoloration.
Movement: I am flexible. I have danced my entire life. I still take drop in classes when I am in Seattle. I am great working in heels.
Figure: I have a classic hourglass figure. I have muscle. This means I am NOT A STICK. I am small yet delightfully curvy.
Skin, Hair, and Nails:
SKIN: My skin is generally clear. I do have sensitive skin. If it gets irritated by something, I am awesome with body makeup. I will take care of everything. I will also let you know. I try to stay a light tan with no lines. I have minimal cellulite, and I am treating it. I have never had a complaint about it. I work out a lot. I keep toned. I stay hydrated.
TEETH: I take good care of my teeth, though a couple a slightly crooked. I whiten them. I have never had complaints.
NAILS: My nails are generally natural unless a photographer makes a request or it fits with a theme. I don't do acrylics unless it's required. I do not have troll feet. I get regular pedicures, and I keep those nails natural colors with the possibility of a themed shoot.
MUA: I do my own hair and make up. I am open to letting other people do my make up. My hair is... temperamental. I can do basically anything with it. I have professional hair equipment and professional styling products. If you want a 1940's up do to last for 6 hours, I can do that! I have yet to meet the stylist that can work with it efficiently. Please, unless they specialize in curly, don't torture them!
Styling: I style my own shoots minus publication work or fashion shows. I have been a costumer for over fifteen years! My closet looks like a costume store. I love to sew, design, and accessorize. I have a large selection of vintage clothing. I want to expand into styling shoots for photographers.
Rates: My rates depends on travel and time. I do a shoot rate as I am my own MUA. If it is an organized studio shoots, I will shoot by the hour. That is generally more fair considering the extra work by the photographer/creative team.
Travel: I do not travel for tfp or tfcd shoots unless it is a photographer that is working towards publication submissions.
Career: I never meant to make modeling a career move. I am doing this as my day job now! I am a professional stagehand with the IATSE 15 as well. That's why I have muscle! I have only ever had to cancel one modeling shoot due to family circumstances. The short version is that I learn about myself by modeling. I enjoy it.
Attitude: I want to have positive, fun shoots. I can shoot for up to 4 hours with out a break. I am good at posing and following direction. I am not easily offended or argumentative. I consider myself a professional.
Portfolio: My portfolio is large and vast. If you don't see something on mm, send me a message. Chances are that I can email you an example of what you are interested in doing for a shoot.
SINGLE? I have a boyfriend. I know you do not need to know that... He should be a model, and he has a doctorate in quantum physics. I like to brag about him.

"Laurel is not only a beautiful, talented, smart, experienced model with a fantastic figure; she's a sweet and fun lady. Our shoot felt like a true collaboration. Laurel is also a photographer, so her input comes from both sides of the camera. Did I say it was a Fun shoot! ...Thanks Laurel!" more less
