Hi, I'm Lauren and I am a professional photographer in Huntsville Alabama. I picked up my first dSLR in 2008 and have been hooked on taking pictures ever since. I became a mother shortly after that and my husband and I have three small girls that keep me on my toes. In the small sliver of spare time that I have, I cheer on my girls from the sidelines, travel with my family, and cheer on my alma-mater, the Alabama Crimson Tide. 

My favorite part of photography isn't the gear, or the act of taking each photo, or editing them to make them into little pieces of art... but it's years down the road, when a single photo can transport you back to a time so easily forgotten. 

Grownups! Everyone remembers them. How strange and even sad it is that we never become what they were: beings noble, infallible, and free. We never become them. One of the things we discover as we live is that we never become anything different from what we are. We are no less ourselves at forty than we were at four, and because of this we know grownups as Grownups only once in life: during our own childhood. We never meet them in our lives again, and we miss them always.
