Lauren | Senior 2020


This cutie has the bubbliest personality and is someone you want to be friends with! I loved spending time with her during my only senior session at Haseltine Estate! Lauren surprised her dad, Loren (I KNOW…COOL RIGHT???) by wearing his high school letterman sweater. LOVE! Want to get to know Lauren a little more?

It was hard picking a few favorites to share, but here they are!



What is your favorite high school memory?

“My favorite high school memory thus far would have to be going to my first football game. The energy was electric and getting ready for it was nerve-racking and exciting, all at the same time.”


 What are your hobbies?

I enjoy hanging out with my dad and puppy, watching movies, listening to music, and laughing way too hard with my friends.”


What are your plans after graduation? 

“Baylor is the dream. I plan to go to Baylor for genetics and then get my Master’s degree in Genetic Counseling.”


What is the craziest or most adventurous thing you’ve done?

“This would probably have to be parasailing over the ocean.”


Do you have a nickname? Is there a story behind it?

“The only nickname I have is LG (for Lauren Grace) because my dad’s name is Loren and family gatherings are too confusing.”


 If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

“Anywhere and everywhere. My bucket list includes Amsterdam, Greece, Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Cuba, Spain, and Peru.”


You walk into Target…where do you head to first?

“Anywhere. I could live in Target.”

What would you sing at karaoke night?

“Probably any early 2000s, Khalid, or Tupac song. Right now, I’ve been playing Truth Hurts by Lizzo on repeat.”

Favorite movie?

“Dirty Dancing has the best movie sound track, but Remember the Titans has the best story.”

What would you say you are a die-hard fan of? 

“I’m definitely a die-hard fan of the Oakland Raiders, Cashew chicken, vanilla Coke, anything chocolate, and listening to my music too loud.”

5 Poses to Practice Before Your Engagement Session

5 Poses to Practice Before Your Engagement Session
By Jaylee Branch and Hannah DeVries

1. Serious Face

Although most of your engagement photos will be super cute, happy, and fun...it is nice to throw in a couple serious faces. This can be intimidating on the spot, so make sure to practice in the mirror next to your loved one. If you are a super smiley person, it’s okay! We will capture it in a way where your eyes are still smiling!

2. Long Kiss

There will be a few pictures where the photographer will snap a kiss! Mhmm!! To make sure we can get the perfect shot, practice holding your kiss for 5-10 seconds. Sounds funny, but some people may find it awkward to kiss for a longer period of time in front of someone!

3. Gaze Into Each Other’s Eyes

It’s what we see in the movies…and all over Instagram! We are suckers for these shots! Here’s what you do! Snuggle up and bring your foreheads close together. Look in each other’s eyes as you're about to kiss. Try holding a gaze for about 5-10 seconds! If you catch yourself laughing…that is PERFECTLY FINE! We love these moments too. Get the gaze down and it can lead to some really swoon worthy, romantic photos. 

4. Snuggling Up to Each Other

Some of you love PDA and some of you hate it. Unfortunately the photographer needs you to be prepared to snuggle up! The closer you are physically…the better it comes across in photos! Remember! We are hoping to capture the chemistry between you two! Your engagement photos should express the love you share for one another and what better way to show that than being snuggled up!? Try holding on to each others arm, hugging and swaying or walking while bumping each other.


5. Twirling

This shot might not be for everyone…but it sure is fun! Heck! Go ahead and practice for your first dance. Some of my favorite shots are created from a slow dance.
