Hello, I’m Lauren
You can usually find me with a camera in my hand, capturing the special in between moments, the small details, the perfect imperfections. The moments you might not think anything of but will instantly bring you back to that time. I’m not big on posing, instead I love capturing the unplanned and authentic moments, especially when they are a bit out of focus, freezing a moment in time.
I have been a creative person for a long as I can remember, always planning, designing, drawing and making. I have a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Interior Architecture, however I am entirely self taught in photography. When I’m not taking photos, I am often drinking tea, spending time in the garden, playing with my puppy or working on a new illustration or graphic design project.
After moving to Tasmania with my husband in 2014, I discovered a deeper appreciation for finding beauty in my surroundings and a desire to document this through photography. I started to look through my camera with different eyes and began to use photography as a means of telling a story through images, capturing details in nature and documenting everyday life.
In 2018 myself and my husband quit our jobs to travel around the UK and Europe for just over 6 months in a van called Matilda. I found so much inspiration while travelling and further developed my illustration and photography style. You can read more about our trip here.
I am currently based in my hometown Canberra, Australia. Since moving back, I have started a series called the Canberra Creatives Project. I felt the need to connect with other local creatives and I wanted to tell their story, giving some insight into how they started, their processes, inspiration and future plans.
Please get in touch if you have a project you would like to discuss or just want to go for a walk or catch up over a cup of tea!
What People Say
We have been big fans of Lauren’s photography for a long time. We recently held our engagement party and the first vendor we booked was Lauren – her style is impeccable and we had total faith in the photos she would produce. During the event Lauren was discreet, and we could see her flitting around with her camera, capturing the important parts of the night such as greeting the guests, the speeches and the cutting of the cake. We received the photos four days from the event which was sooner than we had imagined! Lauren’s work did not disappoint. We have already sent the photos to the printers, we can’t wait to have them framed in our house.
Mel and Nathan
The best things in life are not things but moments. Laurens photos are a return ticket to the moment otherwise gone. We engaged Lauren for our engagement shoot. We wanted to complete the shoot on our construction site as we were building our house. Lauren loved the idea and came up with some amazing angles to capture the beauty of the construction site and our love for one another. My fiancé can be reserved when the camera is on him however I was pleasantly surprised as Lauren made the experience completely relaxed and we had a blast completing the shoot. Lauren will not disappoint and we are so excited for when she captures our wedding day.
Bridget and Mitch
Lauren is always great to work with. Not only is she professional and personable, but she has a keen eye for making corporate photos modern and aesthetically pleasing. We wouldn’t go to anyone else to take our team and office photos. We are constantly praised for our photo style, but at the end of the day, it comes down to Lauren and her amazing work.

Avanti Design House engaged Lauren Sutton photography to capture a luxury fit out in Kingston. Lauren is genuine and an absolute pleasure to work with, I wouldn’t use another photographer. Results speak for itself, the quality and unique style creates a marketing edge. Lauren’s results are driven by her passion to complete the best work every time she takes a photo.
