Hello! My name is S. Lauren Coleman (affectionately known as "Shoother" Lauren on social) I'm originally from the DMV area - more specifically Montgomery County, MD - although, I am now an official DC resident and loving it. 

Ever since I can remember I have found joy in being creative, it's always been a passion of mine. As many artists, I've battled with overcoming self doubt while working and sharing my craft with the world - people can be brutal especially in the age of the internet. I am a bubbly, down-to-earth, and chill person who enjoys working with people who are similar and have a respect for an artists' vision.


Because I am a graphic designer and photographer, I tend to look at things a bit differently - I mean that in the best way. If you're in the market for a photographer, I can assure you that your images aren't going to look cookie-cutter like the images in a Target picture frame. With me as your photographer, our photos will become a work of art. I like to work closely with my clients to capture their true selves in the moment and break them out of their shells.

For those who are curious, I shoot my photos with a Nikon D750 (not that it really matters). In my 7+ years of shooting images with many cameras, I've learned that the camera used doesn't matter nearly as much as knowing how you use it - I know my tools well.


I encourage you to send me an email if you have any questions or project ideas. I look forward to hearing from and working with you!

- S. Lauren
