My mission as an artist and photographer is to bring sensitive, thought-provoking and creative images to my clients and the world.


Who I am. 

I am an artist. I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend, photographer, painter, dreamer and doer of great things. I always try to leave the world a little better than I found it. 


Why I do what I do.

I love what I do. I am fascinated by people, good stories, nature, art and the power of imagination. Creation for me is rooted in wonder and motivated by a desire to celebrate life.


What I do.

Life has given me many hats to wear which I embrace with all my heart. I run and own Lauren Tarbel Photography and work with an amazing team to capture thoughtful, professional and timeless images for myself and my clients. I work as a fine artist creating an impressive range of fine artworks and currently specialize in painting and collage. I am also the co-founder of Moon Gallery Studio in Austin, TX.
