"Working with Lauren enabled me to turn my vision into reality—she has an unbelievable talent for crafting a communications plan that aligns perfectly with your business goals. Without Lauren, my website launch simply wouldn't have happened. Her writing ability merges strategy with artistry. Lauren has a unique ability to blend business brilliance with a captivating communication style."

"Our time together didn't end when you completed the project, oh no! Because of the clarity you brought to my messaging, every time I go to write copy whether, for a blog post, Instagram caption, or new website page, I write with a refreshed intentionality and think, 'what would Lauren do?!' Your work has a ripple effect and continues to inspire me everyday!"

"Lauren has a natural ability in being able to clarify ideas that are otherwise hard for me to take action on. She is strategic, business savvy & realistic while also being the ultimate encourage. Honestly, I think Lauren's positivity is what has impacted me the most as both a person and business owner. She is a cheerleader who knows what to cheer for and it sounds silly, but it has over and over again encouraged me to do things I would be to hesitant to leap for otherwise."

"Before working with Lauren, I hated writing. Seriously, I put it at the bottom of my to do list each day. But, I knew not having a strategy towards writing was making me waste time. In our two hour strategy session, Lauren provided me with brand mission words that I could weave throughout my story, and simple strategies to communicate with my ideal clients that would feel authentic to my process, while still providing potential clients an easy way to understand the unique ways I help my clients."

I appreciated your perspective and feedback, and how much confidence I gained in my approach (modified with your recommendations, of course).

"What I appreciate the most about Lauren's approach is that she doesn't apply a one-size-fits-all formula. The whole process was well organized and customized to me. It was obvious you did your homework on me, which was so helpful because I felt like you understood my specific "brand," abilities, and voice. Overall, it was a very life-giving experience!"

"For me, verbally talking through things is so helpful! Lauren's personality paired with her knowledge of communications and speaking to your ideal clients is unmatched. She is encouraging, yet she can spot the tiny things that need adjustment in order to see breakthrough in the areas you're working on."

LAUREN CARNES

lauren's career in a nutshell

marketing & storytelling via words & images

With a background in public relations and social media marketing, Lauren has always been a lover of telling great stories. For 6 years she worked alongside international brands including Nike, Airstream, the John Maxwell Company, and Chick-fil-A in defining unique elements of their stories and serving as their brand voice through digital, print, and in-person engagements.

Upon her husband's acceptance as a Urology medical resident in Augusta, GA and an upcoming move, she made the leap to launching Lauren Carnes Photography serving couples, creatives, and foodies. After successfully growing her business to shooting 24 weddings in her first full year of photography, she began focusing on merging photography with communications strategy by coaching creative, tech, and food-based businesses on consistent brand voice, copywriting, & imagery.

Since then, she's worked alongside brands like the Rising Tide Society & HoneyBook, Natalie Franke, Megan Martin Creative, Rachel Allene, Creme Brands, and more, infusing brand strategy and consistency into a variety of communications elements.

She also has had the opportunity to speak at a variety of events including the Rising Tide Leader Retreat, Reina Pomeroy & Hailey Dale's Selling With Generosity series, the RISE Summit, and more about a variety of communications tactics. When she's not in the office, she can be found cooking, hosting friends, or exploring new cities with her husband, Chip, and their fur-baby, Sophie.
