Brooklyn born, raised, and stayed! I'm a full time people photographer and I capture love in all capacities: couples and families, the magical bond between pets and their owners, and people falling in love with a city they're visiting.
- When I'm not climbing all over the world trying to get the perfect shot (much to the stress/worry of my assistant, whose primary job is to make sure I don't fall), I'm spending time with my boys: 1 fiancé + 2 cats + 1 dog.
- I can't live without coffee! So much coffee. I need 2-3 cups to be human enough to start my day.
- I had two previous lives before I became a photographer. My first was as a classically trained musician, studying the piano, viola, guitar for 10+ years. My second was as a computer technician for 7 years; I can fully disassemble and reassemble an Apple laptop in less than 10 minutes.
Favourite Place to Shoot in NYC
My favorite locations are Gantry Plaza State Park in Queens and Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn, for the skyline views. You can't get a good photo of the skyline if you're IN the skyline (i.e. in Manhattan). Come explore the outer boroughs with me!

This year, we were back in New York City with our son for the first time and were thrilled that Lauren was able to shoot our family's trip together. The pictures she took of our first trip to New York with our son were fantastic and are a great memory of a wonderful time for our family." - Krystyn
