Hi, I’m Lauren: the face behind ‘laurenbythesea’. I love connecting with and photographing PEOPLE! I’ve done many commissions over the years, from fashion shoots and school prospectuses to product photography but I specialise in capturing real honest portraits of people, children, couples and families.
My photography is natural, fun and heartfelt. I take time to get to know people and make you feel comfortable. I don’t boss anyone about, you get to be you and I just encourage you to relax and have some fun. This will produce images that show who you really are. Nothing posed or uncomfortable. Each shoot is unique and individual. I give part of myself to each shoot so that 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 at your home or somewhere outdoors.

When I’m not being creative you’ll probably find me by the sea, reading a good book in a coffee shop, overusing silly emojis or singing along to my favourite songs.

That’s me but I’d like to know more about you, so connect with me through Facebook, or Instagram and let me know if you have any questions.
