Hi, I’m Jynna….(sounds like Jenna) and I am the owner of Lauren Alexander Photography. I realize by having a business name different from my own name that I will often be called “Lauren” and I am perfectly fine with that ;). I am a portrait photographer based out of Gunter, TX. I have been in business officially for six years however, I shot as a hobby on the side for several years before going full time. I shoot out of my studio which is located on Preston Rd (Hwy 289) and also on location in the surrounding small towns and in the metroplex.
I am first and foremost a mom, wife, and Christian. My family is everything to me and I am privileged to be able to “work from home” while raising our children. We have two beautiful children, a sweet, simple, beautiful, girl named Aubrey Lauren and a spunky, feisty,outgoing boy name Zane Alexander, thus the name “Lauren Alexander Photography”. My husband, my hero, is a Plano Firefighter and we have been happily married for 14 years now.
My interest in photography began long before I even realized it! My “Pop” planted a seed in me at the young age of 13 that at the time I would not admit. He was a photographer and began teaching me all about photography at a young age. I have a portfolio that he made for me of shots that I took at that young age…things like photos of sweet n low packages, frogs, legos, kittens, etc. My goal was to get the lighting and composition right! It wasn’t until we had our first child that I truly realized that passion for photography and I then began to “play” around with photography. Quickly, I realized that photography was a way for me to express my artistic side and although at the time I was still teaching, I realized that photography was my TRUE passion and slowly I began to turn my dream into a reality. Six years ago when we made the move to Gunter I had a choice to continue my career in teaching or to take a leap of faith and do photography full time. Well here I am six years later and couldn’t be happier about my God driven choice to take that leap and go full time.
I love just about every genre of photography and especially love newborns and Seniors. On a given day you can find me shooting a newborn, a Senior, a baby, toddler, child, family, teen, wedding….you get the idea! I love that every shoot is different and I love the challenge that goes along with learning new things and being the best photographer I can be.
Tid Bits about me! I am thirty something years old 😉 , I am an Aggie (WHOOP!) with a degree in Biomedical Science (how does that apply to photography?!), I am (almost) 6 ft tall, I love running and sports (although I am beginning to feel my age), I love being with my family, I have 4 nieces and 4 nephews, I’ve never been out of the country, I love to snow ski, I hate to read, I am very spontaneous and am overly optimistic and have been told I have the patience of Job.
I would absolutely love to be your photographer and would love to hear from you! Please contact me using my contact tab here!
