Hi, I'm Lauren.

I have been behind the camera since I was 12 and have never looked back. When not working on photo or video projects you can find me playing electric ukulele in a punk band, eating delicious food, taking road trips with friends to shows or rollercoaster parks, and walking my little dog in my neighborhood of Humboldt Park, which I adore. 

My purpose in life is to help people, be it through helping others navigate their emotions to feel understood and seen or by helping break down our collective taboos and fears around the topic of death.
