I'm Lauren—a COMMERCIAL, BRAND, & 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 company 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 & Rescue.
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 this summer!)
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 live 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)
It started with my 80's Le Clic camera when I was 4 years old.
And ever since then, a camera has always been in my hand, within reach, or smooshed against my face!
