Hello.

I'm Lauren.

I’m a lifestyle photographer based in Minneapolis, MN. I am inspired by real life and real stories. I want to help everyone see the infinite beauty of the life you’re living. 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, you could say. From time to time, I still take that same old Pentax K1000 out for a spin on 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!
