When one loses themselves in their ever-busy world, it’s always nice to see yourself in a different light. Thank you for the beautiful experience, kind and encouraging ladies.
I cannot express how amazing my photoshoot yesterday made me feel. It was something that I had been dreaming about for a long time but couldn't afford. I went in feeling so nervous but Tarsha, Lauren and the whole team made me feel so comfortable and empowered. I had a very hard year last year and it left me with visible scars, seeing the photos nearly brought me to tears. They were so accommodating, allowing me to bring my motorbike inside. 100% worth it. Something I would love to do again.
I loved every moment of the shoot! The team makes you feel so good about yourself and produces great quality images that you are sure to love!
I may be big but Studio Republic made me see the beauty in that...a gift I can't thank them enough for!
I walked in like a little nervous mouse, but the fun and gorgeous ladies of Studio Republic quickly turned all my nerves into absolute excitement and I had such a brilliant day!! What an experience to have in your lifetime! Just do it! XO
Here at Studio Republic I love to see how we can light people up; taking them through the process of the photoshoot is fun and challenging for some. But afterwards I like to see how their confidence can be boosted and they walk with more pride and joy. I hope to help cultivate everyone to feel more fabulous and stronger about themselves. Sometimes it takes a nudge from someone outside of ourselves to believe what we want to, that we are in fact magnificent, in one way or another.
I was born in Germany and moved to Australia in 2000 with my family. I've also lived overseas in Canada for a couple years but have definitely had my heart set on the Sunshine Coast for a long time. In my ''me'' time, I love yoga, running and all other kinds of physical activities that get me outdoors. I can be a bit of a water baby, so you'll find I jump into any water hole and swim at oddly cold temperatures. I love to explore all sorts of ways to be creative, so you'll see me working on crafty projects at home and trying out new sports all the time.
Look forward to meeting you!
I love seeing the transformation in people, not only visually - but emotionally as well. I'm a sucker for a good before and after! I'm originally from a farm in rural NSW, but now the Coast has my heart! I love all things creative and design - and have a background in graphic design and hair and makeup. I have 2 pugs Bitty & Reggie.
Heya! I'm Lauren
''Making people feel beautiful and look amazing is the best part of what I do!''
I have been a Professional Photographer for over 10 years now and part of our SR team for over 9 years.
Creating and styling an amazing shoot is just the most exciting thing (I REALLY get into it) nothing is too weird to me! Some of my favourite things in a shoot are … Wigs, colour, glitter, crazy shoes, OTT jackets, big hair, crazy make-up ... Every Image is a work of art and when I'm in the zone feeling the vibes I am in my element!
I get to know new people everyday and the most rewarding part is seeing their reaction to their Images and hearing ''WOW You captured me perfectly!''
Can't wait to meet you!
I love a good coffee, sunflowers, overalls, scrunchies but most of all creativity. For me this means expressing yourself whether its through ink on your skin, paint on your face, the way you chose to dress or the words you chose speak.
My background consists of eight years of hair styling experience & four years of Makeup knowledge where I hold two separate Diplomas in this Industry alongside this came countless hours with copious amounts of coffee of course.
I'm blessed to be a part of an amazing environment at Studio Republic, where I'm lucky enough to wake up and play dress up's every day. literally living my child hood dream. Among this I’m frequently absorbing knowledge from other artists and keeping up to date in my industry to meet new trends as well mastering old fashion techniques too.
My favourite moment of the styling service we provide is the little smirk after the transformation process whether small or large there is something amazing about making someone feel a million bucks!
