Fun Facts and story:
I am a 27yr old, very experienced 1950's illustrated pin up model.
I enjoy my work and am always looking to try new things.... i am very creative and feel that photography is an art and we as models are their canvas.
I love my tattoos and feel there is no better way to express myself and tell my stories than with ink on my skin.
I am very bubbly and love to laugh....and feel that life is something to enjoy and make the most of!!!
Im a bit of a dare devil...cheeky but innocent... you may find me playing with fire (as i do fire breathing...hehe) or baking a cake as i do so often.
Whatever i am involved in, I can assure you that i give my best in everything i do.
I entered into the pinup lifestyle hoping to turn my life around and to be able to show the real me to the world.
I decided to get my back tattooed in dedication to my children after the death of my little girl Ella, and wanted it to be a way to express to the world my story of struggle and triumph, struggle being the dark times we endured through this loss and triumph being that no matter how bad things get there is always a positive we can pull out of it.
I have always loved the 40's and 50's era, growing up listening to music from Elvis, Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Haley...etc. The pinup lifestyle, especially the Rockabilly scene seems to incorporate all of the above into one and i love it!!

The best thing is my children love it just as much and it has brought us all closer as a family.
As this is my sole way of supporting my family I only do paid work, but am willing to negotiate depending on the type of shoot etc... I am great fun to work with and i don't think i have met anyone yet that i haven't been able to get along with.
I encourage others to follow their dreams as i feel it is so important and wish everyone the best of luck in doing so.
I hope this helps in getting to know a little bit more about me.
Love to all...
Miss Elle Ray xx
