Hey there, I'm Lauren.


 

I'll be honest. I never thought that one day I'd be writing this paragraph - the one about how I loved photography and graphic design enough to turn it into a business. But here I am, and here's why. When I graduated from Anderson University in 2013, I had a degree in Theology and a plan to start my master's degree at seminary after a gap year. During that time, I moved to Austin, TX for an internship with Hope for Orphans, and it was there that I discovered my love for photography and design.

Since then I've been learning everything I can, not just about process and technique, but also about my calling. I've been so blessed to work with amazing people and organizations that have beautiful, life-giving stories to tell. Even though I never dreamed I would get to channel my creativity into a business, I'm so thankful the Lord had other plans.

I'm still pursuing the seminary dream and am figuring out how to use my gifts in ministry, but for now, telling stories through my photographs and designs has become an act of worship, a testimony to the goodness and grace of my God. So tell me, what's your story?

 


 

You should know:

Lexington, SC is home for me, but I've got a penchant for traveling. Wherever your story leads you, that's where I most want to be.
