IT'S SO NICE TO MEET YOU!


Hello! My name is Lauren! Originally from Minnesota, I have spent the last 8 years behind my camera capturing the people, places, and moments I love the most. Now currently based out of Richmond, VA, I am excited to capture the beauty of the new area and people around me. My heart as a photographer is to capture you as your most authentic self. I believe it's those genuine, in between snippets of love and laughter that accurately express who you are. And those are the things I treasure the most. When looking at your photos, my hope is that it captures more than just a point in time, but that you are able to experience the memories of that specific moment. Whether it's for the thrill of being on stage, a celebration of love, or a celebration of you, my passion comes from your passion. I know how difficult it can be to get in front of a camera (there is a reason I'm behind it!) so making sure you are comfortable, feeling your best, and helping your vision come to life is incredibly important to me! I fully believe there is beauty in every moment and that my job is to capture it. I would be honored to document your special and most important moments, no matter how big or small they may seem.

You can usually find me behind an espresso machine! I have been a barista for 5 years now and I absolutely love my job. Being able to get to know people and make their drinks and their days on a regular basis is a huge joy of mine. When I'm not at the coffee shop, I'm usually playing with my dog, Saoirse, or exploring the world around me.
