“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a ride" - Hunter S. Thompson
My name is Lauren.
I love to snap photos.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE TRAVELING.
I love to laugh.
I constantly feel like I am lost. Most days I'm cool with it.
I love to help people learn to love themselves.
I LOVE ALL THINGS PURPLE.
I have an insatiable appetite for new experiences, and for Mexican food..and cheesecake..and ice cream..
Born in a small river town outside The Big Easy, I spent much of my young life outdoors, on the water. Fishing, swimming, and boating. I love the water. I could live on a boat. For reals. I inhabited my adventurous spirit from my father, who was primarily responsible for the boating, swimming, fishing.. etc.
I love to read, a trait inherited from my mother. I was a really imaginative kid, and that imagination has followed me into adulthood. I suppose I'm one of those Toys R Us "adults". I love telling stories. I love to create. I love watching films. There's nothing like immersing yourself in another world, place, or time. I suppose that's why I like travel so much. I'm a survivor. I am passionate about making the most of everyday and I'm a true believer in Karma. I really enjoy making people laugh.
I never really imagined myself to be a photographer or artist. I guess I still don't, really. I'm just a funny girl who loves to take photos, act, challenge herself and learn new things.
I'm a firm believer that you should do things you're afraid of.
It is my hope, that through my photographs and descriptions of these places, that I can share the sights, sounds, tastes, and feelings of all that I experience in a place, in a time.
And remember that when you get lost- you may just be surprised at what you find!
