Meet Lauren, a sweet as can be, endearing brunette. If you meet her once, you’ll never forget her. She radiates genuine warmth and balances innocence and life’s lessons of great loss with a grace beyond her years. When you talk to her she listens like you’re the only person in the room. When she laughs, her nose crinkles in an adorable way. Her laugh is infectious. It’s like her whole body gives into that very moment. When she laughs you want to laugh too. It’s refreshing to be around someone who has so much zest for life. Who sees every possible possibility and whole heartedly believes, that sure why couldn’t that work? Why not try it? I like go getters, and people who explore every nook and cranny of their talents. I like people who seek the magical land where their life’s work and soul’s desires align.
I first met Lauren in Laie, Hawaii at Jonathan Canlas’ FIND 2.0 workshop. Then our paths crossed again at Kristen Kalp’s Steer Your Ship workshop. Which by the way is one of the most enlightening experiences I’ve ever had. I came away with an amazing sense of clarity, a new sense of direction to seek in my business, and friendships, not too mention a fantastic marketing roadmap and a spirit animal. Kristen Kalp, you are a genius who lights up the world of those who know you. So thank you for finding your talent, being you, and sharing with others who you are.
These photographs were taken at The Play Garden, in Boyce, Virginia. Lauren is a fantastic hybrid (film+digital) photographer whose main focus is family portraits and birth stories. So if you’re pregnant and looking for a person that love, loves babies and mamas like you wouldn’t believe, she is your girl 100%. From one mama to another, you can’t go wrong by choosing her.
