Hawaii. There’s no place like it on this wild planet. 

Where I’m coming from

hey babe, im lauren

I haven’t been everywhere but I’ve been around and I can tell you that Hawaii takes the cake – hell, it takes the whole damn dessert bar! I love it here and I can’t wait to share it with you.

But it’s also important to say that I, too, am a guest here exploring this magical, sacred ground. My travels have helped me form a deep care for the environment and the deepest respect for cultures across the world. 

Love it. Respect it. Protect it. That’s where I’m coming from.

After living on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island over the last 8 years, I've found some pretty special secret spots. Places you can’t Google or find on a map app.

Places that no other photographer can take you to. Places that will put you at risk of literal mind blowing. I’ll show them to you, and I’ll trust you to keep them secret and safe too.

What else do I risk the biscuit on? Well, I go pretty deep …
in the ocean that is. 

Deep dive with me

Then for the last 8 years I’ve been hopping around Hawaii, living on every major island! I live for adventure. I live for life. All this world-wandering has led me to trust my intuition in all parts of life and shown me that my greatest comes from sharing adventures with people like you. 

Risk it for the biscuit

Follow this route, if you can!

I was born in tropical Minnesota, I lived in Australia, then Germany, and I’ve traveled all over Asia.

I can freedive to 75ft (no tank!), I've swam with tiger sharks (no cage!), I used to be a snorkel and dive guide with the manta rays on the big island, and was a divemaster on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Soooo, underwater wedding anyone? Or if you want some stellar underwater photos I’m all in!

But honestly

 I’d say the biggest risk I take with you is to leave my ego behind. When you work with me, you can trust that it won’t be my ego taking the photographs or guiding you through Hawaii’s secrets.

Your day is about so much more than creating pretty pictures for the ‘gram. It’s about your comfort, having the best experience and creating timeless images.
