Hello! I’m Lauren and I am the owner of Capture by Lauren! I’m recently married and a new mommy to a beautiful baby girl, and I must admit that none of this would be possible without the love and support from my amazing husband! I am obsessed with reading, and if you need advice on a good book, I bet I have something in my library you will love! I also am a homebody with wanderlust. Slightly contradicting, but a perfect fit. I live in the same town I was raised in, and never plan on leaving, but I love, love, love to travel. I am always trying to find a way to go some place new! Then, I am always happy to come back home to the familiar and plan my next trip! Now I just have to get my husband on board with me…
Wherever I go though, my camera comes with. My passion, and first love (after my family) is photography! I am incredibly lucky to be able to be a stay at home mom and focus on building my business!
I fell in love with photography when I was asked to photograph my first wedding when I was 17! After that, I never looked back. I set my eyes on art school, and finished a degree in studio arts concentrating in photography from Illinois State University. I’ve never stopped learning though, and don’t plan on ever stopping!
The one thing I have learned is that every family, every couple, every wedding, is different. My goal in photography has always been to capture who you are, who your family is. Because this moment will never happen again, and I believe in remembering life for how it really is.
Thank you for taking a moment to learn about me and check out my website! I cannot wait to hear from you and learn about YOUR beautiful life!
