Well hello, friend! My name is Lauren!
I’m the girl behind all this! My home base is Ridgefield, WA, but I'm originally from the good old PDX, OR. I love super soft blankets, psychology, photography, and the PNW. I'm a full-time social worker, covered in tattoos, married to an LEO, and love Jesus more than anything. But I still cuss a little ;)
I spent a long time feeling like I was confined to a box and unable to be as multi-faceted as my passions were. My fear was that I couldn't be fully who I've been made to be or wear all the hats that make me who I am. Then one day, I just decided to go for it and here we are!
On one hand, my mission with photography to is capture people’s stories and memories through shoots that encapsulate each person’s individual talents, features, and traits. I want each and every shoot to be fun, empowering, and leave you feeling encouraged. Family photography will forever have my heart, but I also offer elopements and body positive "cozy boudoir" shoots that are such an honor to be part of!
On the other hand, I have a passion for psychology and education that has lead me to a full-time career in social work. My goal is to use the things I have learned to help others not just survive this crazy life, but thrive while doing so. I also have a passion for helping first responders learn and understand the impacts of trauma on the people they serve.
On this site you will find photography, psychology, a little bit of passion and a whole lot of honesty. There is something here for everyone, whether that's encouragement, pretty photos, or just someone making you feel like maybe you're not so crazy after all.
I hope you'll stick around and join me on the wild ride this adventure is each and every day.
