With our Road team, I love that we can bring this experience to all of Australia!
I live to light people up; taking them through our photoshoot experience is not only fun but can be transformative. Seeing the way everyone's confidence can be boosted by doing something courageous for themselves is awesome. Sometimes it does take a nudge from someone outside of ourselves to believe what we want to believe. That we are in fact magnificent, in one way or another.
In my spare ''me'' time you'll find me practising yoga, running outdoors and pursuing all other kinds of physical sports to keep me agile, so I can keep exploring this beautiful world.
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!
Melina has had over 15 years of experience in the industry in front of and behind the camera. Her warm and welcoming persona makes you not only feel beautiful but also so nurtured and taken care of. She loves helping people feel more confident in their own skin.
In her own time, she loves to hang out with her family and enjoy the beaches in her hometown.
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
