60 Minutes with Nikki by Lauren Melanie

Last fall when I was in New York I shot a new photo series called 60 Minutes with Michelle. I intended to keep this series going because it really shows the simplicity of portraits in a natural state. Being that I only have a short time with each person, what you choose to show about them…

Miss World by Lauren Melanie

For a new experimental project I decided to name my photo series after a song title. I usually come up with the title before the shoot, or more accurately in the car on the way. The locale of the series is focused on teenage bedrooms. Yes, I’m sure so many people are inspired by this,…

60 Minutes with Michelle by Lauren Melanie

I was in New York about a month ago, and started to think about how much you can really know about a person in one hour. This sparked an idea for a new photo series. On the Lower East Side I met up with Michelle, who I only connected with earlier that day and walked around the…
