Hello! I’m Lauren, nice to meet ya!
I’m a Chicagoland-based photographer available for travel. I take pictures of people, nature and all of life. I am currently attending Columbia College Chicago for photography (with one class left to go!). Photography has been a part of me my entire life, my first word was light! My number one item to pack on family vacations was a camera. And my first film camera, a Minolta, was broken when my Mom gave it to me, which I took apart and fixed myself.
I have a Naturalist and Nature Photography Certificate from the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL.
I’m a total dog Mom. I have an Australian Cattle Dog named Eco. She’s a spotty dotty with perky ears and always up for an adventure… and you know we love adventures!
I’m also a Disc Golf photographer. For over ten years, I have photographed disc golf tournaments across the U.S. from local leagues to majors and have been featured in various media outlets. I also love to play, more casual rounds these days than competitively.
I’m a triathlete. I love the thrill of the water and land races. Not on a competitive level, but just doing it at your own pace. I’m the one out there going off course and swimming out to sea, but I love the feeling of the cold water and the moment I hit a meditative stride.
I love working with couples, families, individuals and brands. If you have an idea for a photo shoot (or video) please get in touch.
