I am a Native Nashvillian attending the University of TN in Knoxville for art and art education who is interested in capturing moments in a way that gives the subject confidence, portrays truth and beauty, and brings people together. I strive to not just place people in poses and push the shutter, but rather to catch people being themselves. I am not interested in making a false representation of someone in their senior or family pictures. I aim to take a photo their friends and loved ones look at and say “wow, that image represents them perfectly and in the best way”.

Along with travel photography, another passion of mine is taking photos that blend fine art and photography using paint, fabric, string, and anything else at my disposal.

I am Lauren. Who are you? I’d love to know.
