I’m Jess Lauren! I live in Buckeye, Arizona! The famous land of the scorching hot sun and cactus! LOTS AND LOTS of cactus! I love jamming out to country music and dancing all my cares away! In my free time, I love to craft and make new things! Anything and everything from stickers to jewelry! I’m still making my way through school, so any time I can DIY something for a shoot you betcha I will! My favorite colors are pink and sea foam green, my current Netflix binge is The Good Place, and I truly take “Dog Mom” to the next level! I have, what I call, a fur baby, Nala, or Nala Bean, she’s just about close to my whole world!
I have been a photographer for around 10 years now, I started professionally taking pictures around 6 years ago. I actually started my professional business with a completely different name and then it blossomed into what is now Portraits by Jess Lauren. Starting my photographer journey has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I have made the best and sweetest friends through this community and never feel like I stop learning from all the creatives around me! My biggest hopes for every single one of my clients is that I can make you feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera. At the end of the day, for me, I am not just running a business, I’m creating a whole family!
