Hi, I’m Lauren and I’m a photographer in the Central Florida area specializing in documentary family sessions and weddings. I believe in the power of boring things and the weirdness of children that comes from a beautiful lack of self-awareness. I also believe a majestic mountain landscape and a lost sock on the side of the road have equal photographic weight because it’s not what you see but how you see it. And it’s why I’m constantly inspired by living in my crappy, old suburbia.
Normal is not a curse, but it also doesn’t mean that you have to fit into a box. To be normal is to honor and respect what makes us different, and to come together on the things we collectively share despite these differences. Normal is not a mandate, but a common place to feel less alone.
If you’re willing to celebrate nothing special because you believe that it all matters — including the stuff that sometimes sucks — I’d love to hear from you.
