Hello, i'm lauren.

I am an artist living and working in the greater Portland, Oregon area. When I started out in photography, I was interested in portraying the beauty and magic I saw in the world. It’s lead me to hone in my style over the years and refine how to visually tell a story.

But it wasn’t until my college photo professor and mentor passed away tragically and I took over his position that I really understood what story I needed to tell.

I’m learning that this world can be incredibly sad. I watch people fall in love simultaneous to others saying goodbye to those they love most. But the deep sadness forces me to cling to the necessity of delight for this life. “If we deny our happiness, we lessen the importance of their deprivation,” by Jack Gilbert.

I want to document for you how uniquely and important your life is. And how precious the small, everyday moments truly are. They end up being the most important of them all.

This means documenting life as it is. I try to just let your story unfold before me, so I can show you how absolutely amazing it is just for existing. That soft brush of hair, the warmth as the sunlight catches his eye, the smell of morning dew on the grass. A hug from your father. These are the times that make up your life.

Let me bear witness to your life. I will be a witness for you.

It’s all about the light.

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.
