Hey there, I'm Lauren! My mission is to support you through any hurdles you're facing as a photographer. Whether it's nailing down editing consistency, streamlining your workflow, mastering poses, or fine-tuning camera settings, I've got your back. I started offering mentor sessions to connect with other photographers and share the knowledge I wish I had learned earlier on. Investing in yourself is key, no matter where you are in your journey. Props to you for seeking out resources and showing up for yourself! Can't wait to chat with you soon!

Who I am, What I Offer, & Why.



 <Go back to my why

What I love most about my job is the opportunity to connect with people like you. Each person has a unique story, and being able to learn about them and help them along their journey is incredibly fulfilling to me. While I primarily work as a wedding and portrait photographer based in Illinois, I've dabbled in just about every type of photography imaginable—school portraits, family shoots, newborns, seniors, landscapes, travel—you name it. Starting out, there were so many things I wish I had known, and now, my hope is that we can connect and dive into all your questions together. I'm here for you, with no secrets and no topic off-limits! One of the best decisions I've made is investing in myself and learning from other photographers and business owners whom I admire. I encourage you to do the same!
