Hey there, sweet friend!

If you're new here, I'm Lauren, owner of this little corner of the internet.  I am a creative to the core who is constantly inspired by good light, sweet love stories, pretty little details, exploring new places, and creative projects.  Here you'll find a little exploration of each!

looking for something?

A little more than a year ago, I met with my dear friend Katelyn to discuss the possibility of starting my own photography business during a coaching session and to shoot some head shots.  That day I quickly found out that there is a lot more to running a business than just taking pretty pictures.  I soaked up as much knowledge from her as I could, and then headed on my way, hoping to implement all that I was taught. As I drove down to Richmond this morning for my yearly check-up, I realized just how much I’ve grown in the past year.  I went from not knowing if I was really interested in starting up a business to actually launching one.  I think it should also be mentioned (for all of the photographers out there that know what this means) that I had no clue what a prime lens was the last time I talked to Katelyn.  So much of what I know now has come from her teaching and I am forever thankful for her generosity and willingness to share so much of her knowledge.  I’m also so grateful for all of the support and trust I’ve been given by my clients in the last year! You have no idea how much it means to me.  I’m also so thankful for all of the support that my husband has given me!! Morgan, I would never have chased this dream without your encouragement.  Thank you to my family too. I appreciate your love and support.

I’m not writing this post to say that I have it all together or that I’ve learned all that I need to.  Instead, this post is a celebration of how far I’ve come, and how much I still have to learn.  Happy Wednesday!
