Creative small business photography in Carlisle and The Lake District

Helping you document your story, build your brand and connect with your customers with relaxed small business photography

Tell your story, sell your stuff, and put a face to a name

A brand photoshoot aims to capture the very best day in the life of your lovely small business – think lots of casual and candid shots of you (and staff if you have any) going about your normal businessy activities, interior shots, attractive clutter, that kinda thing.

These photos allow you to make the best possible impression on clients, customers, collaborators and even the press – imagery from brand photoshoots can be used on your website, pitches, blog posts, email marketing, press releases and loads more, and they’ll save you heaps of time from stressin’ that you never have something good for the ‘gram.

Your colourful Cumbrian photographer

With over 14 years of experience, I’ve photographed many different types of businesses – from one-man bands to teams of 20+ people – and at this point I’m a total pro at making you feel relaxed in front of the camera too, whether that’s with cheesy jokes or flinging compliments at you. 

I love working closely with local and independent brands to capture their story, in their style. Photos will be lightly edited, but we can chat about that and make sure that they fit your brand colours. 

Modern phones have pretty decent cameras, but nothing compares to the magic of having your business’ photos taken professionally.

Simply styled product photography

Whether you need product photography with a plain background for your online shop, lifestyle shots with your products appearing in relevant real life situations, or both, my portable studio equipment and I are at the ready.

Brand story & lifestyle photography

These are the photographs that really sell the you part of your business. When people are scrolling through your website or social media, they connect with images that show them who you are.

Team photos & cringe-free headshots

The type of photos that most people dread – portraits! I always like to have fun with portraits, and I love capturing people as naturally as possible, whether it’s candid photos of the team at work, or more commercial headshots.

“Lauren came to our shop opening and took some photos that we were able to use for promoting our business. Lauren did a great job and the photos were stunning.

So, a few months later when it came to getting some updated photos of the shop, there was no choice other than Lauren.

She went above and beyond for us and we would highly recommend her”

Capturing real-life joy since 2011

I started a paper round when I was 13, and saved all of my money for my first proper camera. When I was 18, I realised that wedding photography was something that I really wanted to do, and with some hard work, it became my day-job. 

I specialise in capturing natural, vibrant moments of happiness, and now I love to do the same for small businesses in Cumbria and across the Lake District.

LGBTQ+ inclusive

I’m a proud part of the LGBTQ+ community, and I really believe that everyone should feel welcome and included. I’ll never ever assume, and will always use your chosen pronouns and inclusive language.

No airbrushing

I don’t do airbrushing or any sort of appearance editing – it’s something super important to me to capture people authentically, as they are.

Neurodivergent friendly

As someone who’s a neurodivergent small business owner, I know the challenges that can bring. I do whatever it takes to make the process run smoothly for all of us, and am more than happy to make any adjustments necessary.
