I'm Lauren!

Commercial, brand, and food photographer in Huntsville Alabama.

I first started my business “Lauren Sanderson Photography” in 2008 (10 years ago!) and mainly photographed families and children. 2 years ago, I had this deep desire to shift my focus, and start photographing local businesses. I felt like there was a need for clean and modern photography services for small businesses in Huntsville. My goal is to give these businesses a professional and artistic image library that they can use throughout the year to promote their business. I call this side of business “Shoot My Brand”. I use my @ShootMyBrand Instagram account to highlight some of the paid work I do, but also share the people, places, and spaces my family and I explore in the Huntsville area (and sometimes beyond). 

I have worked with a wide spectrum of clients over the last couple of years including food trucks, veterinarians, churches, horticulture businesses, indoor play facilities, movie theaters, and more!

I also provide photo editing/retouching work for Click Magazine, and I work full-time a local agriculture manufacturer as the Marketing Specialist. 

Family comes first, always.

I have 3 amazing daughters (a 9yo and 7yo identical twins) and I’m married to my high school sweetheart who is a Firefighter and Driver for Huntsville Fire.

A bit more about me...

  • I am an alum of the University of Alabama (RTR!)

  • I love planning adventures and traveling with my family. (Germany soon!)

  • I have a love/hate relationship with social media (don’t we all!?!) 

  • I love living and raising a family in Huntsville. (#ihearthsv)

  • I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with Hamilton and have seen it on and off Broadway twice!

  • I love listening to podcasts and audiobooks. (I’m an arm-cherry!)

  • I go to bed so excited for my morning cup of coffee (my ahhh moment)

  • I never learned how to do a cartwheel (oh the shame!!)

It started with my 80's Le Clic camera.

And a camera has been in my hand or smooshed against my face ever since!
