Hi, I’m Lauren: the face behind ‘laurenbythesea’. I’ve always been very creative but photography has been my main passion for many years now. Over those years I have discovered what I really love to photograph, PEOPLE! I specialise in capturing real honest portraits of children and families.
My photography is natural, fun and heartfelt. I take time to get to know people and make them feel comfortable. I don’t boss anyone about, you get to be you and I just encourage you to relax and have some fun so I can see a glimpse of who you are in those moments that I’m with you. Each shoot is unique and individual. I give part of myself to each shoot so that hopefully clients have not just photographs to treasure but a really enjoyable experience of spending time together too.
To keep your experience as natural as possible, I shoot on location, either in your home or in a place you are familiar with.
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.
