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 New York City
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!
Lauren has a minimum booking length of 60 minutes in New York City.

Pricing starts at $350 USD for a 60-minute vacation shoot
Customer Love for Lauren
"I absolutely cannot recommend Lauren highly enough. She was so friendly and welcoming that it felt like meeting up with an old friend, and she gave great posing directions so I could achieve the elusive 'super casual jaunt around town' aesthetic of my dreams. The photos are out-of-this-world-amazing and capture the exact style and sentiment I was hoping for. I couldn't be happier with my experience and while I feel like I could write a whole book about how great a time I had, I will condense it to the following: 1. Lauren is an amazing person generally and an unbelievably talented photographer 2. Your photos will be amazing 3. Absolutely book a shoot with Lauren (you can thank me later :p !)" - Courtney

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.
