"there are worlds of experience beyond the world of the aggressive man, beyond history, and beyond science. the moods and qualities of nature and the revelations of great art are equally difficult to define; we can grasp them only in the depths of our perceptive spirit."

Hello, i'm lauren.

I am an artist living and working in the greater Portland, Oregon area. Like many others, I’ve fallen completely in love with the Pacific Northwest and spend as much time as I can exploring the natural beauty of nature. 

I photograph because it is the most effective way I can express how I see the beauty in the world. Ever since I was little, I have had an intense need to document every fragment of life. Maybe that comes from my fleeting memory, or maybe it comes from my ancestry (I come from a long line of photographic and word artists), but I have to document. Those small, intimate scenes are of the greatest value to me--a look, a scent, a fading winding road, a splash of water with a rainbow, light projecting glistening trees onto the wall--those are the moments with which I fuel myself. And when it comes to photographing others, I want to be able to share with you my unique perspective of the world, and maybe see those little moments with new care and love.

Even to this day, one of my favorite things to do when I visit family is to pull down the albums and photo boxes from the attic or bookshelf, wipe off the dust from years of love, and see my parents’, grandparents’, great-grandparents’ wedding and family photos. There’s something so special about seeing generations of love grow from two people to the next to the next to finally you, today. Whether you come from a single family or a multifaceted one, there is so much love in your history.

Your photos are a legacy.

It’s worth investing in only the best person to document your life and experiences in a beautiful and artistic way. Honestly, it’s so important to find someone you trust with this. Leave the most important part of documentation up to someone who is as invested in creating tangible memories as you are. Relax, and know your photos are in good hands.

Wedding stories are $3,600 for a full day, and include images, a final film, and some special physical gifts in your package. Travel fees may apply. Just contact me if you are interested in a longer adventure together.
Other love and life stories begin at $275.

Let's chat about documenting your story together.
