if there are two things i love to photograph they are red hair and freckles, but there are so many more things i loved about photographing lauren mccarthy. her sparkling personality is at the top of the list. you can’t be in a room with lauren and not smile. you just can’t. she’s got a knack for digging in her heels (the fabulous kind, of course) and getting to know people, which is probably why her lauren wants to know campaign for mccarthy auto group is such a huge success. lauren is showing the women of kansas city just how easy buying a car can and should be.
i photographed lauren for the august issue of her life magazine, which is on stands now. we shot at the studio where talk ranged from cars to careers and our common love of old school hip hop and all things fashion. and speaking of fashion, our sweet friends at 3house boutique were kind enough to style lauren for our shoot and the always fun melissa evans joined us for hair and makeup.
i built this next backdrop specifically for my shoot with lauren but it’s become wildly popular among our clients and is now referred to as “the lauren wall”. it’s the perfect backdrop for her gorgeous dress from 3 house boutique.
i love this behind the scenes shot of melissa with lauren as we were prepping for the shoot. i can’t even remember what we were all laughing about but with these two funny girls the laughs were nearly constant!
and by the way, today just happens to be lauren’s birthday so be sure to leave her some birthday love in the comment section here on the blog!
wishing you the happiest of birthday, beautiful girl!
