***PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING***
First off, words to live by, always be kind. Everybody is always going through something. That being said, if you are negative, click to another page now. Going forward with positive energy...
My name is Lauren Babrée (pronounced Baw-bray). Besides modeling, I am also an actress, singer, and dancer. I am bi coastal working in New York City, Los Angeles, and the rest of the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. I also work in Canada as well. I am a die hard New Yorker, and just recently became bi coastal to LA on 10-31-2014. If you ever see another location besides NY or LA in my profile's location city, it is because I am traveling there or planning an upcoming trip. Because of my experiences with LA, I have to say if you live in LA, contact me ONLY if you're NOT flaky and ARE serious. Because of my experiences with freelancers in LA who seemingly majority like to dream about it and not do, I am now requiring a down deposit on all LA shoots which can be made through paypal or venmo unless you are with a company, or have multiple references that can vouch for you being a stand up person. If you are located in another city anywhere else in the world that is not LA, I do not require this, as I have never had such an issue elsewhere... which comes to my next statement below...
PLEASE don't contact me unless you are serious. Next, I do NOT do TFP. This is my career aka my full time job, 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 made a career aka full time job out of it early 2008 and I haven't worked a normal job since. Most people know me by now since I travel all over the USA and Canada shooting for various projects, including published work. So cant work for free when the work flow comes a lot anyway. When I was 14 or 16 starting out I benefited from free photos, but not at this stage.
I upload selfies, not because I need to fill my port, but because I love them and you can get a feel for what I naturally look like in person.
I always 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.
My rates are standard but I have received more and less due to different budgets. 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 no drive by friend requests, messages, tags, or photo comments unless we have shot or you are seriously planning to shoot. I will assume you want to work with me if you friend request, message me, tag, or leave a photo comment, in which I will message you to make such arrangements. All my friends on my page are people I know and have shot with. That also speaks for tags and photo comments. I really would only appreciate tags from people I've worked with as a testimonial. I delete most others. And if you're browsing my photos just to look and not book me, you're wasting both of our times. I dont need praise. I am here to work. This is not a social media site. I have facebook for comments. This is a business website for working models!
During a shoot if I don't want to do a certain pose such as those that are way too riskay and classless, it isn't because I am difficult. Its because I've been doing this for so long I know the poses that are cheap and will immediately go up and ruin my image. It happens numerous times and I'm not having it anymore. I'm a professional and need little to no direction on posing. I give a wide variety on poses, but I will not do anything that does not look classy.
That also goes for do not message me if you are looking for a model to do something a porn star or prostitute would do. The fact I even need to note this is so beyond me it's mind blowing. A model is not what you are looking for if that's what you're asking for. I have and continue to report this type of behaviour to model mayhem, and have got members kicked off for such foolishness, so dont try it.
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 gemini, and huge on astrology!
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 walk 4 miles every day for an hour and also do 100 crunches a day as my workout.
Sometimes I have ideas as far as outdoor locations, so always feel free to ask if you'd like to both think of scenarios.
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)
