Write a testimonial

it would take me many paragraphs to explain the magic and honesty that your photos have, as well as the true and deep talent that you possess and use to its full potential. you've already made a name for yourself, and you're still going, going, going

It is exactly a year and a day after my last edit of the testimonial I had written for Lauren. And she deserves a new one. I feel blessed to know Lauren outside of just Flickr, from Tokbox to Facebook to Tumblr and even through texting and the rare phone call. As much as I love Lauren, it is actually almost difficult to think of the words to describe how truly incredible Lauren is. She is honestly one of the most selfless people I know. She is wise when I have a problem, can easily make me laugh, and even responds to a simple “hello” in the most interesting way. I just read the testimonial that one of our mutual friends had written, saying that Lauren’s 365 ended a year ago. I can almost not even believe that it has been that long. I remember seeing some of her images from mid-365, and saw her style and her work transform over the rest of the project. I was even able to see some of the pictures that she didn’t make public on Flickr, through her Facebook of course. And since then, I’ve seen Lauren evolve, not just as an artist but as a person. And she is a beautiful person at that. I miss our awesome Tokbox chats, where we rocked out to Space Jam and you wore your funny hat and we even were joined by Rachael and once even Meagan. We laughed about Harry Potter and how you spent forever cleaning your room and we made funny faces, and though you couldn’t see me then, it was still great. And then you were the best person and sent me my own webcam to use, because you no longer needed it, and even though we didn’t Tokbox much after that, I still wish we could. And you made my otherwise boring summer incredible and fun. And Im so glad for it. Once I said that you will go far, and leave the little people like me behind, and even when you joked about it then, a little while later you posted on your Tumblr that quote plus a little piece of writing how you will never let that happen, and I remember thinking about just how truly selfless you were then, and you remain that way now. I don’t want to copy Rachael’s words, but like her, I am incredibly proud of you. And I hope we remain friends.

i've been trying to write lauren a testimonial for as long as i can remember, just i have not been able to put into words how amazing i find both her and her photography. i remember when i was going through a hard time in my life earlier this year, and i was looking through my contacts, and one picture stopped me. it was a picture of a girl (which i have grown to love) with the most perfect expression on her face, what i was feeling at that time. i went through all your photos in that day, and was stopped dead in my tracks. short to day, whenever i felt down, i went to your stream; maybe it was by slight chance, but your photos made me feel better, they helped me through a bad time in my life, which is more than i could ever thank you for. it was just my luck that i got you know you more; from our beginning tokbox chats, to tmi tuesday, to harry potter sillybandz, to stalkers, lauren brought me so many smiles on the internet, i can't even describe. she is going to go far. i mean, just look! her 365 had ended exactly a year ago, and she is still growing in her photos. she is going to be famous, and i will remember when i see her pictures on magazines, how i had the privilege to know her, and how proud i am of her.

For the past four days, instead of studying, writing my research report, keeping up with my TV shows, or even taking new pictures, I've been taking the time to look at Lauren's photos, from the very beginning. I can tell that she's already grown as a photographer in the short while she's been here. Now that I've seen all of her work, I think it's time I write this incredibly talented inspiration a testimonial to tell her that she is a phenomenal photographer! Every picture has amazing tones, colors, focus, and, of course, a beautiful model. From descriptions, I have learned that there has been some road bumps, but I know that nothing anyone says will stop this girl from ultimately reaching the top of that photography mountain (When I started that sentence, I really didn't know it would end in such an awkward metaphor...) Anyways, if Lauren isn't your contact, you should change that! Because each and every picture she posts is awe-inspiring, and you wouldn't want to miss a single one!

there we go!! alright so i've been wanting to write you a testimonial the first day i saw your photostream, in fact the first day i saw it, i spent 2+ hours just scrolling through all your photos. my eyes hurt from staring at the computer screen but it was sooo worth it :D gosh lauren, if only there was someway to tell you how much you've inspired me. i don't know if it means anything to you because i'm only saying this over the internet but especially since we're the same age you make me feel like i too can be as good as all the other photographers, regardless of my age. but however i do lack pretty much every kind of equiptment =\ no professional camera, that's a major setback =\ just a little point and shoot is all i have but anyways the fact that you're also religious inspires me even MORE because i too go to church and i depend on God to help me get through this whole process of trying to create something out of my photos ah, you're only 16!! and look how much work you've done! you seem like the type of person who takes their camera with them everywhere loll. i do too :) sometimes i get so frustrated, because looking at your work tells me that i can be so much better and i'm not trying hard enough. take that as a compliment because now i want to challenge myself and take even more pictures. you truly are, the most inspirational person i've never met haha i could say that you are the most prodigious person i've seen. but that would be an understatement. take care :) -Angela

Lauren, I think it's about time I write you a testimonial. Your photos blow my mind. Seriously, I cannot begin to understand how you pull of so many fantastic images. You are truly an inspiration when it comes to photography. I've said this before, but your love for God has truly inspired me as well. Since first finding your stream a few months back, I've enrolled for a confirmation class, I pray more often, and I'm proud to say that I actually pay attention in Scripture class now :) There have been many time when I've wished I could be as talented as you, but I've come to realize how wrong that is. You are brilliant and unique, and I want to be able to appreciate your work from my perspective. You are wonderful. Go on and be the most famous photographer out there. You deserve it. Please never ever stop. -Joe Curtin

Dear Lauren, I love looking at your photos. The light, bokeh, settings, and everything are such amazing bits. It's usually hard to pick the one best aspect out of each photo you post.

Okay, so to be truly honest you are the reason i joined flickr because your photos portrayed so much emotion and talent i just felt so inspired because seriously i've not seen any photo's that capture so much depth like yours do.. I wanted to let you know that where ever or however you intend to pursue your career in photography promise me ( an inspired flickr user) to let the your employers to look at your flickr account because they will see so much. They wont just see the obvious in your photography skills but the originality you have and how you've changed and inspired so many people who constantly follow your photostream. I'm trying to think of words to write to let you realise just how talented and lucky you are. i'm sure you realise this with all the kind words you must have received from friends and fellow flickrers, but it just amazes me to see how much thought goes into your work. Your pictures speak out so much and allow the the viewers to see what u see and even put their own personal experiences into a picture.. and that's what photography is about.. Reading your descriptions i realise something bad has happened to you, i'm not quite sure what. But whenever you may feel low or sad, look at the words people have said about you, they made me smile so they must fill your heart! Anyway, i just wanted to thankyou for the inspiration you've gave me. and let you know how truly brave you are with the photo's you take..

Lauren... you are a genius. I only wish i knew you in person so you could teach me your ways. :)

January 19, 2010

Not only are Lauren's photos absolutely stunning visually, but every single one hits home emotionally. She puts her heart and soul into her photos, shares her experiences with her descriptions, and lets the world in to get to know her. She is an inspiration both as an artist and as a person.

January 8, 2010

The only thing I can say is wow! All of Lauren's work is really pleasant and you can tell she puts a lot of time into her shoots. Her pre and post process just seems incredible and I love everything about her photos! Great work Lauren and I can't wait to see more! Congrats on the 365, and Happy New Year!

I am usually hesitant to have role models, or to take special interest in admiring someone or aspiring after them, but there is no doubt that I admire Lauren. Not simply because her work is beautiful, or because of her own talents, but because of her awareness to put God's gifts to work. It is truly a sin to be gifted and to not use your gifts to show God's glory, and Lauren does just that. She inspires me in my photography and my faith, and specifically in the art of intertwining the two. I hope to one day be able to do so as boldly as she does.
