Burlesque Performer and model based in Birmingham. I have been modelling since January 2010, concentrating mainly on Vintage, Pin Up and Burlesque styles but have experience of most genres. I will try most things at least once. I have been involved in a variety of projects and enjoyed meeting lots of new people and making some great contacts. I have worked with 3 photography clubs in the West Midlands so far and always happy to include more in my address book. I have modelled for several clothing manufacturers and have been published in Vintage Life and MilkCow Magazine’s 2011 Pin Up and Burlesque Calendar. I perform regularly with The Custard Cuties dance troupe, both in group and solo acts.

I have a love for Pin Up, Rockabilly and all things Vintage, also more recently I have discovered Corsetry and the art of Burlesque. I often make my own costumes and props, feel free to ask if there is something specific you have in mind. I am inspired by strong, striking, provocative woman such as Eartha Kitt, Betty Page and Mae West. I am especially fond of the fashions of the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's. I am also a fan of the music of these eras, some of my favourites being Julie London, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Peggy Lee and Pearl Bailey. These passions have been a big influence on my modelling and dancing. I like variety and am always looking to diversify myself.

I work hard to get good shots both model and photographer can be proud of. I pride myself on my reliability, time-keeping and communication. I expect the same from those I work with. I am happy doing TFP shoots as long as I feel it will benefit my portfolio. It is highly unusual for me to go higher than swim wear/lingerie levels for TFP, but if you have a real stonker of a project it might tempt me! I don't have 'set' rates, please contact me with a detailed overview of your project, location, date, and booking length and I will get back to you. If you have a set budget please tell me this from the start and I will try to accommodate you.

I am now concentrating mainly on the following themes (and very willing to offer TFP on these), but if you feel you have a project I would suit please do ask – if you don’t ask you’ll never know!
Collaborations with clothing, lingerie and accessory designers, Images for publication, Burlesque (stills or video), Pin Up, Vintage, Classic Cars, Bodypaint, Hair and Make Up, Fetish, Character/conceptual images

***PLEASE NOTE***

My modelling and dancing have to fit around my 4 year old son. My best availability is on Tuesdays or Weekends. If you wish to book a shoot or show with me on another day please try to give me at least one weeks’ notice.

I do NOT do Glamour/Open leg, please do not ask. I have no problem with anyone who does, it’s just not for me.

Had a shoot with laura yesterday based around 40's fashion.
She came along with a bag full of clothes to work with and lots of energy.
This was the first time i had worked with 40's fashion, and laura helped me with her array of poses to get the best from her look.
Thanks for a great shoot Laura, hope to work with you again soon.

Had another great shoot with Laura, great to direct and she has lots of ideas of her own.
Punctual, comes well prepared and works hard, would certainly recommend her to any photographer. Thanks Laura for a very enjoyable day.

Has a charity shoot with Laura. A very relax and versatile model offering something a little more subtle from the rest. Highly recommended!

can't help but echo John Duder's thoughts below - quietly confident!

during a recent hectic full day shoot, Laura arrived with the minimum of fuss and simply began posing for us - making use of available props etc with essentially no need for direction whatsoever.
