When asked, Lauren tells people the simplest, most descriptive truth:  she paints with her camera.

With a fine arts background, experience in theatre and film, combined with her wild imagination and passion for storytelling, Lauren has made her mark as an award-winning art photographer and illustrator.  A believer in Big Things, in possibilities, and in magic, she firmly identifies as a wondering (and wandering) soul very much inspired by her inner child, on a mission to illuminate the most beautiful, most wondrous, most God-suffused realities all around us.

When she isn't writing about herself in the third person, Lauren enjoys time spent at Walt Disney World with her husband and kids, knitting in front of a beautifully presented Jane Austen film adaptation, and sunny days at the beach imagining she's a mermaid.
