Natural, candid photography


"The photos look amazing! I can really see the essence of the day in all of them, they make me feel like I'm there again!"




Hi, I'm Lauren

photography is my passion, especially capturing people

I'm a freelance photographer based in Bristol but also covering Reading and willing to travel across the rest of the UK and beyond!

My learning and experimenting began in the darkroom using 35mm film cameras and I furthered my fascination to degree level, graduating in 2012 with a BA Hons in Photography.

My approach is a combination of documentary and fine art photography. I love to catch people unaware and have been described as a sniper because of my discreetness.

I love - festivals, dancing, yoga, aerial hoop, stilt walking, kayaking, surfing, bouldering, music, board games, my friends, my family... and photography!

"When I had to stand the other side of the lens to get a portrait for my website I realised how nerve wracking it is. This is a list I put together considering all the things I was panicked about!"

Supporting a local Bristol printer




"I don't outsource printing, instead I support a local Bristol printer and personally check each print to ensure the best possible quality and colour match.
