My name is Lauren.
I have always had a deep love for all things creative- from painting to sculpting, from knitting to metalsmithing, from videography to photography! Having these roots established deeply while also not fearing to explore other realms has made me a more fearless and aware photographer. While looking through gallery samples please know what my vision is for this particular craft: I am BLESSED to be given the opportunity to capture and preserve a moment in time from YOUR LIFE.
I was born in Lansing, Michigan and raised in the Nashville, TN area. My husband, Kappel, and I have travelled together to several different places all over the globe as missionaries. This has dramatically changed the way we look through the lens. We are BEYOND blessed to now be in a Nashville, TN - based community, completely surrounded by amazing creative people who inspire us and make us laugh every single day! We love it here- but we love to hit the road and travel someplace new any chance we get, so if you're out of town... don't even worry about it!
I like to use natural light to "paint" my subject rather than using false lighting. When you open up time in your day to let me shoot you, you are being very vulnerable and i feel natural light is the best way to convey intimacy.
