meet Lauren

Hey new friend! I’m glad you’ve found this space.

I am a native Floridian who moved to Tampa, Florida 13 years ago and never looked back. I am also a Kindergarten Para who loves teaching and working with kids.

Fun facts about me:

  • I have 2 children and an adorable fur baby!
  • I have an obsession with big mugs and drinking coffee. The bigger the better!
  • Spicy food is my jam 🙂 Mexican food is my love language – feed me tacos and tell me I’m pretty!
  • I don’t watch TV often, but if I am going to sit down and watch… I like TV Dramas like Grey’s Anatomy or Comedies like The Office 🙂

My “why”:

In 2017, I lost my mother after a long battle after a stroke. My mother was always the one documenting our childhood, but never in the photos. After she passed, I looked through albums and albums but came up with less than a handful of images of her. It was a turning point in realizing that you never know when the last time you’ll see someone again. You could lose someone special to you at any moment, so having photographs taken is special. These moments are something you may never get back.

My approach:

My approach is simple and easy! No props, cheesy smiles, or awkward poses, just authentic emotion and moments.

For your session there are no expectations other than showing up as you are. Photographing your current season of life is more important than perfection. One day, you’ll be able to look back and remember the beautiful real that your life was at that moment.
