Hi, I’m Lauren: the face behind ‘laurenbythesea’. I’ve always been very creative but photography has been my main passion for at least 15 years now. Over those years I have discovered what I really love to photograph and learnt to follow my instinct about what catches my eye. My two favourite things to photograph are people and landscapes. I’m lucky to live in a lovely, little town by the sea and I aim to record that experience and the beautiful things that inspire me in daily life. ( follow me on Instagram!)
For a few years wedding photography completely took over and was a whirlwind of tearful vows, gorgeous dresses and lovely couples but if I’m honest, and I like to be, my heart pined for creating things and seeing beauty in the everyday; so now, although I still shoot some beautiful weddings, I try and keep a balance with my work so that I can dedicate myself and find fulfilment in creative projects.
When I’m not being creative you’ll probably find me by the sea, reading a good book, trying out new places for a cream tea, overusing silly emojis, adding to my collection of maps, binge watching Netflix, or singing along to my favourite songs.
