Hi I’m Lauren

The face behind ‘laurenbythesea’. I love connecting with and photographing PEOPLE! I’ve been photographing since I can remember but professionally since 2010. I’ve done many different shoots over the years, from fashion and makeovers , school prospectuses to product photography.  Now I focus on what I enjoy the most. For me that’s capturing real honest portraits of people doing what they love. I specialise in working with entrepreneurs and business owners as well as couples and families making memories with their loved ones.

My photography is natural, fun and heartfelt. I take time to get to know you and make you feel comfortable. No bossing about, you get to be you and I just encourage you to relax and have some fun. This helps create images that show who you really are. 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 of your choice. When I’m not being creative you’ll probably find me by the sea, reading a good book in a coffee shop, or hopping on a plane for an adventure somewhere.


That’s me but I’d love to know more about you, come connect through Facebook or Instagram.

I like to push myself out of my comfort zone to stay brave. In 2014 did a skydive for Mind charity. I threw up on the way down!
