Hey there! I'm Lauren. Born and raised on the Gulf coast of Florida, I am a Belmont University grad with a BFA in visual art and a Southern California based lifestyle and portrait photographer available for bookings worldwide.
With a background in “always-taking-photos” I decided to pursue a degree in photography in Nashville at Belmont University. While living in Nashville, I yearned to challenge myself outside of class, not only by building my own business; but also by working for companies like The Nashville Entrepreneurship Center and the fashion brand, Sister’s of Nature to make my dreams a reality. It was during that time that I laid the foundation for what I always wanted to do. I learned how to interact at professional networking events, take special requests both within these companies and throughout Nashville at partner companies. Provide gorgeous photography content for web properties and social media accounts in realtime. Style and assist on photography projects. Also, interact as a member of an entire content and marketing team and attend weekly meetings on-site and more. After four years in Nashville and one BFA later, my husband Bryce and I are on a mission to continue our careers in the photography and music industry in his beautiful home state of Southern California. Bryce is an internationally touring musician for a Swedish heavy metal band and my photography partner in crime. Some of my favorite memories together involve shooting and going on photo adventures... With photography, I believe we can take something ordinary and turn it into something extraordinary. Additionally, I believe photography is essential in this modern world and that has been enough of a reason for me to never let go of my camera.
With that being said, being a photographer is my absolute dream job. I look forward to getting to know you and sharing this passion so please take a look at my portfolio and let's get in touch!
