Oh, hello!

I'm Lauren.

Making pictures of love.

I'm Lauren.

I’m a fine art + lifestyle photographer based in Minneapolis, MN. I am inspired by real love and real stories. I want to help everyone see the infinite beauty of life. Right now, in this moment. Perfectly imperfect.

My journey as a photographer started in the darkroom of my high school photography class. I relished in developing black and white film from my old Pentax K1000 35mm film camera. Photography remained a hobby as I pivoted from the arts to science.

In college I studied Biology and graduated with a B.S. in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior from the University of Minnesota. I spent 7 wonderful years working as a marine mammal trainer with dolphins, polar bears, seals, sea lions, penguins and puffins. It was a dream job!

Photography called me back and became my full-time job a few years ago. A full circle journey. From time to time, I still pick up my Pentax K1000 out for personal projects. It's as sweet as reconnecting with a long lost friend.

In my spare time, I am a yoga loving, mother of three sweet kiddos. I love cooking and can often be found snuggled up on the couch with a new cookbook. Ask me for recommendations- I adore sharing!

I'd love to get to know you too. Send me a message and let's get started!

These are a few of my favorite things...

Now it's your turn.

Tell me about you!
