"LAUREN EFFIN KRISTIN.
I'm going to write you an awesome testimonial starting right now? okay, good. I just want you to know that your portraits blow my mind. I LOVE the way you capture ones face- it can show so many sides to a person- so real, so true, and powerful. You capture perspectives that isn't expected from the common eye, which I find completely interesting. I love the way your photos are contrasted, the tones, and the experiments you try. Don't stop shooting. XOXO"

You are just so amazing, Lauren.

"It is most definitely time that I write you one of these, Lauren.
Her photographs show beauty in their simplicty, their subtle tones, their soft light, and their silent messages. There is a naturalness here that can only come from someone born for photography. Lauren is creative, ambitious, and never fails to take my breath away. She is an inspiration."

"there is just something about lauren's photos make you want to continue to look at them over and over again. whether it's a photo with amazing sunflares and an excellent use of light, or something so extremely emotive, or a photo with an amazing concept, or all of the above; i can look through her entire photostream and find myself in complete awe."

I can't wait to see more from you."

"Lauren's photos never cease to amaze me. I look forward to her uploads every single day, because her photos are always so special and unique :) The colors and tones in her photos are always incredible, as well as her ideas."

Sheltered Willow says:
"3 things about lauren.
1. She captures "real" time. Each one of her photos is like a split-second moment in time and they all look so incredibly unplanned and natural.
2. She's got insane bokeh and tone skillz.
3. You could read her writing (in her descriptions) for hours. it's like you're reading her actual thoughts, unedited, raw, and so so beautiful.
There are so many more things... but you get the point ;)"

"Lauren. Lets see.
I think I have almost written a testimonial for this girl three or four times. But each time...I can't come up with words to describe her work. Simply put, it is a tad bit overwhelming. She has a way of putting herself into her art in a way that few can accomplish. Seeing her progress and witnessing her growing both through photography and emotionally is something worth noting. I can't wait to see more from her in the years to come :)"

i have been following you for the longest time, and you are such an inspiration to myself and probably to all of flickr. the details and the colors in your photos show so much emotion and so much of your character. i'm so happy with your progress on flickr, it makes me so happy to see you getting better each day i click on one of your photos. you have such creative ideas, from eye-makeup to your little sister grace blending into the wall.
i wish you never stop, to never stop taking pictures. keep going and i know that you will go far with photography.
thank you so much for inspiring me and others. it truly means alot to me that you keep uploading every single day.

Ashton Dixon says:
"I have no idea why I haven't written a testimonial for Lauren yet. Her photos never cease to amaze me, for only being 16 she has such a grip on the world around her that she portrays so beautifully through her photos. Every time she uploads a new photo I can see her growing as a photographer. These past few months her photos have just gotten better and better. She truly is amazing and deserves to be famous someday for her beautiful work."

"Lauren is, to put it simply, pretty freaking amazing.
Her photos are indescribable--different every day yet each one is consistently inspiring, intriguing, and beautiful. Also, she's one of the nicest people ever. (:
I'm still trying to figure how she is so brilliant."

allie mellinger says:
"I've never met Lauren, however the way she speaks to people through her photography creates this sense of familiarity; which is incredible. The passion, raw emotion, and beautiful composition in every single one of her photos, is something that inspires me every time i look at her photostream. She portrays her own style and personality so honestly, that it is breathtaking and captivating to see her work. This girl is destined for big things!"
18th February, 2010
"This testimonial is looong overdue. Lauren's photos are absolutely beautiful. Each and every one of them have a power and intensity that she captures so perfectly. Simply put, she's a pro at this photography stuff. XD I love just going through her stream and marveling at all her photos, and I always get excited when I see she's uploaded a new photo, because she just keeps getting better and better. She's also a really nice person. (Not related to photography but I thought it was worth mentioning ahaha)
NOW GO LOOK AT HER PHOTOS IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, GAWSH"

Barrett Kowalsky says:
"i hate writing testimonials/comments because the words never come out right. but i can't NOT write one for you. so, sorry if this comes out bad. and sorry for saying "sorry if this comes out bad" because i feel like everyone says that.
lauren is incredibly different from all my other contacts and friends i have on flickr. yes, her photos are beautiful. yes, she is incredibly creative. yes, the tones are wonderful.
but she also REALLY puts herself into her photos in a way i have never seen anyone do before. she is so unbelievably real and so incredibly honest. i don't know how she does it and i don't think i really ever will, but that's alright with me. it's what makes her my favorite contact and friend. we've never really spoken through words before, but we've spoken through photos and other ways too.
or at least, she's spoken to me.
i will never stop visiting your photostream."

"okay i'm sorry that this will probably be the worst testimonial ever because i'm so bad at explaining myself, but i'm just gonna keep it simple :)

keep up all the cool pictures! i love seeing them :D"

"Lauren, i came across your stream and it was fabulous. Every little aspect of it was perfect. Just how you compose your photographs and get across so much feeling. I also love how you describe yourself "still trying to figure myself out." you can really see this through some of your more emotional work. Every single picture use's such breath taking natural light. Please keep up the amazing work."

"LAUREN! There's so much to say about you :) Your photography is getting better & better and it's great to see you improve through Flickr. I know that when we post our picts up on facebook, all people see is a pretty picture or a clear shot but behind all that we understand the many features of every single shot.. the contrast, dof, lighting, whatever. I'm glad I have this one big aspect of my life in common with you cause I know that it only brings us closer. I'm anxious to see your future shots & of course, hoping to take some with you! Hopefully we can keep supporting & inspiring each other through our love of Photography :) love youu keep it up gfranddd hahah!"

"There is a strong, warm and authentic quality to the photographs you'll find here. Like a warm current in a cold ocean, this stream is a place you'll find photographs infused with a clear sense of the person, a young woman who has already found a sound footing and a clear perspective. There is goodness afoot in this young woman's work, come and be sure to watch it grow!"
