Shoot Like A Girl Photography
Enjoy a visit to Lauren's etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/shootlikeagirl
where you will discover beautiful landscape,nature, flowers and cityscape images.
My journey as a photographer came forth out of both a love of art and a desire to overcome personal tragedy. About ten years ago, I had been working as a music journalist and photographer when I experienced a violent crime at the hands of a stranger. It proved to be a life-changing event. As part of healing from the trauma, I sought ways to see tangibly the beauty still present in the world. I challenged myself to capture with my camera the extraordinary hiding within the ordinary all around me. But, it proved to be a wonderful surprise to realize just how abundant beauty is in the world.
Currently living in Brooklyn, NY, I especially savor taking photos of cityscapes, landscapes and flowers/nature. In 2009, I launched ShootLikeAGirlPhotography.com and began offering 8"x10" and 11"x14" matted prints of my work. Soon after, I started a line of greeting cards featuring my photos professionally mounted on high quality linen paper. I frequently have exhibits in and around NYC and look forward to continuing to grow in my work. There is always something new to discover-- and take pictures of!
