Hi, I'm Lauren!
 

Welcome, welcome, WELCOME! I am so honored to have you interested in experiencing a photo session with yours truly! Voted #1 Photographer in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania in 2022, I have developed a strong love for capturing your moments while obtaining a goal of withholding a pure feeling within your images! What started out as years worth of photographing as a hobby, to becoming a single mother trying to obtain additional income has now put me in the position of becoming a full time photographer! In each session I take pride in building a relationship with my clients that is like no other! A session with unlimited laughter, occasional tears and many memories captured, there is nothing I love more than leaving each session with a long-term friendship!

Never have I thought my life's path would lead me to being a photographer or just a business owner in general. Since a young age, creativity and art has always been a passion of mine. Drawing, painting..I was your avid doodler in school. Trying to pick a career straight out of high school was very challenging for me. All of my friends chose the nursing, psychologist, teaching route and there I was, doodling for ideas that had a creative outlet but that would also lead me into an income that I could survive off of, all while hoping I would actually enjoy the job I would be doing for the rest of my life. I feel for ya'll in that current situation because it is TOUGH.

 

During my education at NCC as I studied Graphic Design, I was working multiple jobs, coincidentally all being in the photography field (coincidence?? mayyybbeee = here's your sign Lauren!) From good ol' Sears Portrait Studio, to a customer service representative to another photography studio, to becoming a newborn photographer inside of the hospital, to eventually purchasing my first beginner camera. It started as a hobby, getting together with new friends Ive made in these past jobs, all having interest in photography as well, we began practicing and learning together constantly photographing whatever, whoever and whenever

Fast forward to marriage, children, divorce and moving back in with my parents, it seemed so impossible. Working as a graphic designer, raising twins, the possibility of surviving and supporting myself and children seemed so far out of reach. I knew that whatever I wanted in life, the only person I could depend on making that happen, was myself. I have to put in the time, I have to put in the energy, I have to take the chance, I have to be comfortable, being uncomfortable, I have to set goals and I have to be the one to crush them.

 

...and that is exactly what I did, crushed my goals of providing for myself and children by becoming a full time photographer

This year is about self-love and happiness. I’ve made so many changes in the past 5+ years in my life, personally and professionally and was at my most confident about 6 years ago. Fast forward through the next 5 years and being beat down all over again in every aspect of life had me revisiting a mental and physical low again. When you swear you would never get back to that point you allow other people and circumstances to sink their teeth into you and tear you down.

It is okay for you not to feel your best. It is okay to not look your best. It is okay.

Give yourself grace. Give yourself time. ..and when you are ready, you can and will get there. You got this, we got this.

I challenge y’all to embrace on your self-love this year. We all can use a little and in reality, at one point I’m sure we all have been in that dark place as well. You are not alone. We all will get through it. Even the tallest mountains are the most challenging to climb, but there is a top.
