Hi! I'm Lauren and you'll most likely find me behind the camera or looking at clothes.
I am a San Diego native; growing up in a small town east of the county where I spent my days always being involved with something creative. I always knew I wanted to be working in fashion ever since I was young, I loved clothes and tagging along with my mom on her shopping trips to the mall probably more than any average child. As a teen I also fell in love with photography and going to concerts, I loved capturing moments during shows with my point-and-shoot camera at the time and reliving the night again through the pictures. I was 15 when I picked up my first DSLR camera and started snapping away ever since. That's when I got involved with the local music scene and thus began me shooting live music/concerts. When I was 16, I ran my own music-based publication where I was able to showcase various genres of concerts in the Southern California area through my photography but also keeping fans up-to-date on interviews, music news, and reviews along with a team I led. As I was graduating high school, I realized I still loved the fashion industry just as equally, which is when I decided to pursue that passion and go to FIDM/The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. In Dec 2014, I graduated with my Associate of the Arts Degree in Visual Communications with my focus on fashion styling. While in school, I interned under celebrity stylist duo Wendi + Nicole, and began styling my own photo shoots for class projects and companies. I love being able to style looks based on certain genres or concepts and really get to show off my creativity in another aspect that goes along with photography. I currently work as a Senior Stylist for Stitch Fix, as well working freelance for styling jobs. I enjoy that I have now been able to bring my love of fashion into the frame and style my own photo shoots along with taking the photos. I currently love shooting fashion based editorials and portraits but am also a contributing photographer for Soundigest, Bandsintown, Créer Magazine, and Ruse. Magazine where the focus is on live music and promotional images.
