Behind The Lens
Creative. Professional. Expressive. Diverse. Dedicated. Versatile.
Hello & Welcome to TSE Polished Prints by Lauren!
I am the very proud owner & CEO. I am from the small town of Sulphur, Louisiana.
SWLA is home to my photography studio and also where I currently reside with my 3 beautiful children. Tanner, Sydalee & Emeree.
Hence the name of the company.
T- Tanner (My first love, my only son & my strength)
S- Sydalee (My first daughter & my nurturing side)
E- Emeree (My little runt & my energy)
I was inspired by the children I created to jump into this industry 6 years ago (as of 2024) and since the day I started, I haven't stopped. I fell in love with photography in a way that I can't fathom. Holding that camera, photographing the most beautiful moments, creating so many magical memories gave me a rush of adrenaline and still does till this very day. This is my passion and my dream! I knew one day I would have a studio, publish my work, collaborate with so many amazing people and be an inspiration to others. A lot of late nights, early mornings, hardships, wins, and of course many losses went into this journey of becoming all that I am today. It certainly did not happen overnight and it definitely isn't anywhere close to over. I am still learning, growing and changing each and every day. One thing that always has and will remain the same is my love for creating art within my photos. I hope to earn your business and I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
