Many of you may not know, but I have a brother who lives in Nashville, TN. As a result, I travel to Nashville 4-5 times a year.
This trip, I had the privledge of shooting with five photographers, one of which was Jayda Iye. After seeing her work, I KNEW I had to work with Jayda. She's hands down one of the sweetest people I've ever met, and next time I'm back in Nashville (in a couple of months--time is flying way to fast) I'll be hittin my girl up again!

What some of you may not know, is that I also write professionally for various platforms. One platform I'm so excited to start writing for is H, their blog known as The Hub Highlight. My first task was to write about "Things Models Wish Photographers Knew".
Without further adieau, here is the completed article! *with the link to the actual blog post down below!!!
I have so much respect for photographers. Their job is incredibly difficult and there are so many elements to photography and a multitude of jobs within the photography job (i.e. editing, equipment care, etc.). While there are a lot of challenges within photography, there are also a lot of elements that go into being a model that are glossed over by other creatives. Oftentimes with the miscommunication, models and photographers can feel disconnected.
Here are three things I wish photographers knew, from a model’s point of view:
How to fix this. Follow up with models and crew. Make sure everyone is on the same page.

Last year I did a shoot with Wild and Free Photography which was technically never released. In honor of Halloween, I'm bringing dark editorial Lauren back to present to you some of the cool shots from our shoot!

I've known Liz for years now and consider her one of my best friends. Last shot we did was for a feminist art gallery, so this time was all about the sporty fashion that's in right now (which I'm all about). Beautiful Saturday morning in the summer in Chicago is the best time to shoot! I'm so excited to finally release this set!
Love you Liz! Thank for being so incredible, always!

As a model for over five years, I find myself learning new things everyday. This blog is a way to share my stories, images that may not be on my main board, and interesting things abut modeling and my life.
