The Creator

Hey There!

I'm the photographer behind Lauren Elaine Photography. I love empowering, connecting, and inspiring young adults being a senior photographer. While I specialize in senior photography, I also photograph couples and weddings. Besides being a photographer, I am a 9th grade world history teacher, coffee lover, pizza obsessed, travel enthusiast, Game of Thrones watcher, and crime junkie. Lastly, I am a photographer whose goal is to capture raw and captivating emotion in every session.


I'm thrilled you're seeing me put together in these photographs because I'll likely be moving all around trying to get the best shots with my hair pulled back during out session! I was born and raised here in the Mid Michigan area, Gladwin to be exact! I graduated from Gladwin High School in 2016 and graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelors degree in Education and am now working at Zemmer 8-9 Campus in Lapeer as a World History Teacher. I forgot to mention I'm a total history nerd ;)


I love connecting and developing a personal relationship with my clients. I do this by providing images that will stand the test of time and by giving you the best portrait experience possible. Experience is the key word here, because with me you get more than a session and some digital images. You get a personalized full service experience.
