👩🏻‍💻 Hey there!! Allow me to introduce myself...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m Lauren Grayson! And I’m kind of like that emoji you see up there, often behind a laptop.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been a professional portrait photographer for 🤯 NINE years now, and I love it. When I started this whole thing, I was a single Mom living in a 570 square foot apartment, I had an out of date camera, a laptop computer and a whole lot of ambition.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other words, I was young, dumb and broke. Yes, that’s a song, but it was also my life!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had some growing pains over the years, trust me, but I’m happy to say I stuck it out through those moments and I’ve been able to build a business I am wildly passionate about.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve photographed many things over the years, but I’ve found that my current focus is really women and their stories through Motherhood and beyond.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I’m not working with my clients, I’m also helping other photographers out there get their business right at @embracingtheedge the educational extension of my brand.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love helping other photographers grow their own business and supporting them to create their own success.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There were women out there who gave me the push I needed when I lacked the confidence and know-how, and to them, I am so grateful. Go ahead and give a shout out to those people doing that for you in your life right now and tag them in a comment and tell them THANK YOU! They’ll appreciate it more than you know!

On Monday, I borrowed a projector from Martha (the professor who taught my History of Namibia course in January) and when the sun went down we all got dressed up and posed in front of fun, colorful backgrounds. We turned our music up loud and danced around and probably looked ridiculous to anyone that looked our way, but damn if it wasn't so much fun, and just look at how cool the photos turned out!⁠ ⁠ (PS. there are travelogues of the last three days, and more to come from what we did the last few weeks, check them out at adayinthelifeofsarahkoenig.com)⁠ ⁠ #bravopost #portraits_mf #earth_portraits #portrait_blog #wmportraits #portraitgames #bravogreatphoto #collectivetrend #theportraitpr0ject #featurehighlight #pursuitofportraits #city.ports #777luckyfish #portraitmood #discoverportrait#africantravel #africantraveller #africantravels #bloggingafrica #travelafrica #travelafricastory #visitafrica #discoverafrica #discovernamibia#bloggerlife #lifestyle #lifestyleblog #thegirlgang #thousandwords #liveauthentic

Las miradas se encuentran a través una habitación atestada, se enciende la chispa de la atracción. Conversan, bailan, se ríen. Ninguno está en busca de una relación seria pero de alguna manera una noche puede convertirse en una semana, después en un mes, en un año o en más tiempo -Zygmunt Bauman👀 . . . . #RiriTalentGlobal #portrait_vision #aovportrait #portraitpage #featurepalette #dicoverportrait #theportraitpr0ject #artofportrait #LifePortrait #PortraitFolk #portraitsfromtheworld #6selectports #portrait #portraiture #life_portrait #makeportrait #PortraiShoot #bravogreatphoto #PortraitVision #DiscoverPortrait #PortraitStream #bodybuildingmeal #instagood #instadaily #Portrait_Society #photography #fotografoslatinos #portmex #fotografiaamateur #moody

My favorite color from the series, purely because of how much money and work we put into it 😅 How many balloons do you think there are?

Guys!! Just a reminder that my 2020 weddings are booking up really quickly! I set a goal for myself in the beginning of January to triple how many weddings I had in 2019 and I’ve already booked them. But with that being said, I’m still pretty limited to how many I can do this year, so make sure to secure a date with me for 2020 or 2021 (:

I know what makes a good photographer. Want to know what makes a good photographer? Well, you’ve followed the right instagram account because I can tell you the answer. . The simple answer is, everyone is a good photographer. Period. They say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Someone out there will love your craft. Someone out there will hate your craft. It ultimately boils down to what and how it means to you. . People that talk shit about other people’s work are the type that just cannot relate to the subject of their criticism. As a matter of fact, they desire to push their own beliefs on someone else’s work without attempting to understand the purposed details constructed into the work. People can literally say something like, “That’s bad photography because the background isn’t totally white. Or the posing is weird.” . But did you die? -Chow . .
