Things are changing quickly, and I am trying to keep up.
I believe that progress is not always forward motion.

I have traveled to some beautiful places this past year.
By Grace, I’m continuing to travel, reflect, learn, grow, document and share.

I am freshly moved to
to the city of Cleveland, Ohio to be a trainee with modern dance company,
Inlet Dance Theatre (inletdance.org).

This blog has changed from a place of promotion, to simply, a place of sharing:
words + photos + stories.

To read more detailed writing and thoughts:

I will have frequent, weekend visits to the Charleston-area to continue work.
Current Dates:
November 25-29
December 18-January 3
April TBA

My new website — http://www.elleeffect.com — will be launched oh so soon. Keep an eye pealed : )

Prints of my personal work from South Africa and Colombia will be available for purchase
to help me continue to pay rent, to drive and to pursue art.

Now scheduling shoots in Cleveland.

    Hey Lauren, I know it’s kind of random to get a message from me, but I was looking at your pictures here in your blog, and man, you seriously have a Godly gift going on there, you can express so many feelings, they’re so warm and welcoming, I simply don’t have enough words (in English..hehe) to tell you how amazed I am, I’m a fan!

    I know that I don’t know you or anything, but I found your blog randomly a few weeks ago and it has become my homepage on my computer. I think that you’re truly inspirational in words and art.
    Thank you.

    Hi Lauren!
    My name is Jenelle Miller and I am Lori’s sister. She told me about your photography and that I need to check it out. I’d love to possibly get some pics taken when we make it up to visit Lori. Could you send me info about your pricing? Thank you!!

    Jenelle 🙂
