LAUREN PHILLIPS - PHOTOGRAPHER & EDUCATOR
EMOTIVE, NOSTALGIC, EVOCATIVE STORYTELLING
I’m Lauren, the bones behind Love Her Wild.
I'm a muma, and a lover of the freedom a woman gets when she is given just enough opportunity to be free from the everyday hustle.
This is what I want to do for you. To show you, in the form of photography, that you were present. That you loved fiercely. That you were indeed, a great muma who did run free with her children, who did feel the wind in her hair and who hugged her children like it was last day on earth.
These are the golden days. These are the moments we want to remember.
I want you to know that you can go back in 10, 20, 30 years time and look back at your photos, a smile takes over your face, a tear rolls down your cheek and you go back to those moments all over again. They are relived.
My style is genuine, heartfelt and emotive. I'm a sucker for authenticity, nostalgia and romanticising the smallest moments of joys that aren't small at all... The way the wind felt as you would wind down the window on a hot summers day. The way tiny feet would play games with the ocean and chase the waves back and forth. The way a hand would brush past a plant while walking past... The way that those tiny fingers would wrap around your neck, and play wth your hair, as you sniff in just ONE more moment with the children that are your world.
When not taking photos, I mentor other photographers. Online, in person and through my Find Your Wild Workshops. I’ve won awards and been published internationally, but that doesn’t define me. More importantly, It’s a pretty heavy passion of mine to help others to dig through the hard stuff to truly find their unique voice and walk away with the tools and confidence to own it.
I am not your average Joe, not your “look at the camera and smile” kinda gal. I like it a little quirky, a little grainy and even out of focus at times. A lover of the perfectly imperfect.
At the end of the day, I want to give you a little piece of magic to SHOW your people how hard you loved them... Even when you’re long gone. I want to show YOU, through pictures, how hard you loved each other. I want you to feel that wave of nostalgia running through your veins.
I want to get creative with you and make magic with the beautiful mundane.
