I remember taking my enormous baby over to her house to visit when she was just a few days old — — and what a precious tiny little peanut Lauren was! From the very start, Lauren had a sunny, sweet disposition. Our families saw each other several times a week. She was always so nice to my daughter — somewhere in a shoebox or scrapbook there is a very sweet picture of Lauren leading my 2 year old bumblebee around during the Halloween parade. But I digress.
In 2009, I was just starting out in photography, Lauren and her sister were some of my portfolio building clients. We went out to Claude Moore park — she even brought her tuba with her! We took lots of pictures, and this was one of my favorites. I entered it in a local photography competition with the Loudoun Photo Club, and it won a second place ribbon.
Lauren was one of my senior models so she participated in my 2014 Senior Safari at the historic Morven Park in Loudoun County. Meredith Ehler did her hair and makeup, and she looked amazing. We took some pictures in studio, I think Lauren has such an interesting jaw line — yeah that is not the kind of thing most people are going to say to her but that is the kind of thing I notice! So I did some more dramatic lighting on her here.
Here she is looking sweet, which is her natural persona.
Here she is looking like an editorial model!
