    "it would take me many paragraphs to explain the magic and honesty that your photos have, as well as the true and deep talent that you possess and use to its full potential.

    you've already made a name for yourself, and you're still going, going, going"

    "It is exactly a year and a day after my last edit of the testimonial I had written for Lauren. And she deserves a new one.

    I feel blessed to know Lauren outside of just Flickr, from Tokbox to Facebook to Tumblr and even through texting and the rare phone call. As much as I love Lauren, it is actually almost difficult to think of the words to describe how truly incredible Lauren is. She is honestly one of the most selfless people I know. She is wise when I have a problem, can easily make me laugh, and even responds to a simple “hello” in the most interesting way.

    I just read the testimonial that one of our mutual friends had written, saying that Lauren’s 365 ended a year ago. I can almost not even believe that it has been that long. I remember seeing some of her images from mid-365, and saw her style and her work transform over the rest of the project. I was even able to see some of the pictures that she didn’t make public on Flickr, through her Facebook of course. And since then, I’ve seen Lauren evolve, not just as an artist but as a person. And she is a beautiful person at that.

    I miss our awesome Tokbox chats, where we rocked out to Space Jam and you wore your funny hat and we even were joined by Rachael and once even Meagan. We laughed about Harry Potter and how you spent forever cleaning your room and we made funny faces, and though you couldn’t see me then, it was still great. And then you were the best person and sent me my own webcam to use, because you no longer needed it, and even though we didn’t Tokbox much after that, I still wish we could. And you made my otherwise boring summer incredible and fun. And Im so glad for it.

    Once I said that you will go far, and leave the little people like me behind, and even when you joked about it then, a little while later you posted on your Tumblr that quote plus a little piece of writing how you will never let that happen, and I remember thinking about just how truly selfless you were then, and you remain that way now.

    I don’t want to copy Rachael’s words, but like her, I am incredibly proud of you. And I hope we remain friends."

    "i've been trying to write lauren a testimonial for as long as i can remember, just i have not been able to put into words how amazing i find both her and her photography.

    i remember when i was going through a hard time in my life earlier this year, and i was looking through my contacts, and one picture stopped me. it was a picture of a girl (which i have grown to love) with the most perfect expression on her face, what i was feeling at that time. i went through all your photos in that day, and was stopped dead in my tracks. short to day, whenever i felt down, i went to your stream; maybe it was by slight chance, but your photos made me feel better, they helped me through a bad time in my life, which is more than i could ever thank you for.

    it was just my luck that i got you know you more; from our beginning tokbox chats, to tmi tuesday, to harry potter sillybandz, to stalkers, lauren brought me so many smiles on the internet, i can't even describe.

    she is going to go far. i mean, just look! her 365 had ended exactly a year ago, and she is still growing in her photos. she is going to be famous, and i will remember when i see her pictures on magazines, how i had the privilege to know her, and how proud i am of her."

    "For the past four days, instead of studying, writing my research report, keeping up with my TV shows, or even taking new pictures, I've been taking the time to look at Lauren's photos, from the very beginning. I can tell that she's already grown as a photographer in the short while she's been here. Now that I've seen all of her work, I think it's time I write this incredibly talented inspiration a testimonial to tell her that she is a phenomenal photographer! Every picture has amazing tones, colors, focus, and, of course, a beautiful model. From descriptions, I have learned that there has been some road bumps, but I know that nothing anyone says will stop this girl from ultimately reaching the top of that photography mountain (When I started that sentence, I really didn't know it would end in such an awkward metaphor...) Anyways, if Lauren isn't your contact, you should change that! Because each and every picture she posts is awe-inspiring, and you wouldn't want to miss a single one!"

    "there we go!!
    alright so i've been wanting to write you a testimonial the first day i saw your photostream, in fact the first day i saw it, i spent 2+ hours just scrolling through all your photos. my eyes hurt from staring at the computer screen but it was sooo worth it :D
    gosh lauren, if only there was someway to tell you how much you've inspired me. i don't know if it means anything to you because i'm only saying this over the internet but especially since we're the same age you make me feel like i too can be as good as all the other photographers, regardless of my age.
    but however i do lack pretty much every kind of equiptment =\
    no professional camera, that's a major setback =\ just a little point and shoot is all i have
    but anyways
    the fact that you're also religious inspires me even MORE because i too go to church and i depend on God to help me get through this whole process of trying to create something out of my photos

    ah, you're only 16!! and look how much work you've done! you seem like the type of person who takes their camera with them everywhere loll. i do too :)
    sometimes i get so frustrated, because looking at your work tells me that i can be so much better and i'm not trying hard enough. take that as a compliment because now i want to challenge myself and take even more pictures. you truly are, the most inspirational person i've never met haha

    i could say that you are the most prodigious person i've seen.
    but that would be an understatement.
    take care :)

    "Lauren, I think it's about time I write you a testimonial.
    Your photos blow my mind. Seriously, I cannot begin to understand how you pull of so many fantastic images. You are truly an inspiration when it comes to photography.
    I've said this before, but your love for God has truly inspired me as well. Since first finding your stream a few months back, I've enrolled for a confirmation class, I pray more often, and I'm proud to say that I actually pay attention in Scripture class now :)
    There have been many time when I've wished I could be as talented as you, but I've come to realize how wrong that is. You are brilliant and unique, and I want to be able to appreciate your work from my perspective.
    You are wonderful. Go on and be the most famous photographer out there. You deserve it.
    Please never ever stop.

    I love looking at your photos. The light, bokeh, settings, and everything are such amazing bits. It's usually hard to pick the one best aspect out of each photo you post. I have to say, your outdoor natural light photos are my favorite. Basically, the field and the forest photos. Amazing :D. I'm also really inspired my your manipulations, I want to try one soon now. Thanks for being an inspiration. Whether you feel like it or not at times, you are :). And I'm really really really glad you're a Christian too.

    "Okay, so to be truly honest you are the reason i joined flickr because your photos portrayed so much emotion and talent i just felt so inspired because seriously i've not seen any photo's that capture so much depth like yours do.. I wanted to let you know that where ever or however you intend to pursue your career in photography promise me ( an inspired flickr user) to let the your employers to look at your flickr account because they will see so much. They wont just see the obvious in your photography skills but the originality you have and how you've changed and inspired so many people who constantly follow your photostream.

    I'm trying to think of words to write to let you realise just how talented and lucky you are. i'm sure you realise this with all the kind words you must have received from friends and fellow flickrers, but it just amazes me to see how much thought goes into your work. Your pictures speak out so much and allow the the viewers to see what u see and even put their own personal experiences into a picture..
    and that's what photography is about..

    Reading your descriptions i realise something bad has happened to you, i'm not quite sure what. But whenever you may feel low or sad, look at the words people have said about you, they made me smile so they must fill your heart!

    Anyway, i just wanted to thankyou for the inspiration you've gave me.
    and let you know how truly brave you are with the photo's you take.."

Not simply because her work is beautiful, or because of her own talents, but because of her awareness to put God's gifts to work. It is truly a sin to be gifted and to not use your gifts to show God's glory, and Lauren does just that. She inspires me in my photography and my faith, and specifically in the art of intertwining the two. I hope to one day be able to do so as boldly as she does."

    "I found it, I found it. I swear I looked here before.
    Anyway...gosh now I don't know where to start. From the beginning I guess. I stumbled upon day 317 somewhere and went to your stream.You were Laurennicole81 then. (I thought the "81" may have been the year you were born- I was amazed that you were even younger,you have so much talent). omg I was so amazed and in awe. Still new to Flickr, I did not know about faving and commenting or anything, I was just looking around at stuff that caught my eye. I kept going back to see what you would put up the next day. I have found a lot of images I like out there, but your stream was the first one I kept coming back to on a regular basis. I faved one of your images first. You were the first person I asked to be a contact that I don't know personally. You are also the only person I have on my contact list as a friend that I don't know personally. I am gonna be sure that you are my first testimonial.

    You have been such an inspiration. I look at your stuff and its like I can feel it. I hope someday that I can evoke such emotion just by people looking at my creations. I went all the way back to your first photos. They showed creativity, but you have grown so much. I can only imagine what you will do in the future. At this point it does not seem like you have even plateaued, like you are still growing and improving. I know to many (even myself) that this is perfection. But it is only because it is right now, you are still breaking new ground and it is exciting to watch. Again this is inspiring because I know that I am improving also and hope that a year from now that I will see how I have grown.
    You have a gift. I have no doubt in my mind that you will cause many to see beauty. You have a way of looking at the ordinary and making it extraordinary and making it so others can see it also. I respect your vision,and always check out other peoples streams that you recommend. Many of my new favs have come from your fans. Thank you for keeping at least some of your stuff public. I went to see farahelizabeth off of your site the day she went ohno and would love to see what her photos are like, but I had never seen any so I haven't pursued to hard. If you went totally private, I would have to beg or something. I know what I would be missing out on. I realize it is kind of scary, there are creeps out there (I have daughters and one is scarred) and you have become visible in the past year. But so many others benefit from being able to be inspired and enjoy the beauty you share.
    Thank you for allowing me to be a tiny part of your world. I have grown because of it. Yes even though I am much older than you (probably older than your parents) I am honored to learn from you.
    God works in mysterious ways. Be the maker"

Before I even got onto Flickr myself, I fell in love with her work, and have been hooked ever since. I look forward to seeing all the new and wonderful images she produces, because every one of her pictures has inspired me in some way.

    Edit:
    Well, it's been a while since I wrote that, and so much has changed since then. Lauren has changed so much as a photographer and developed such talent and beauty through her work. I have had the opportunity to get to know her a little better over the last few months, and have learned that not only is she an incredible photographer, but an incredible person as well. She really has such a beautiful heart and mind, and anyone would be lucky to have her as a friend.
    Lauren really is one of the most inspiring people on Flickr, there is no doubt about that. I know I have been inspired and awed by her work on countless occasions and I know I will continue to be for a long time to come."

I look at her photos and can almost feel exactly what she's feeling just by looking at it.

    As if it isn't enough for Lauren to be an unbelievable photographer, the person she has presented herself as here on Flickr is just unbelievable. Rarely will you found somebody who's work is so popular, but who's heart is so humble. Her passion, creativity, and faith is really such an inspiration to me.

    when i got flickr, i liked it. but i didn't really know what photography was before i saw her pictures. they are perfect. i wouldn't be still taking picture if it weren't for people like her! every picture takes my breath away, and every time she uploads i get way too excited. she has SO much talent, and i can't wait to see her picture in a magazine or something.
    keep going, please. :)"

    Your photos amaze me.
    You have emotion, you have the best hair flips, you have the best tones and bokeh and both your indoor and outdoor shots amaze me (which for some reason rarely happens) and on top of that you are so sweet.
    And you have copious amounts of bokeh.
    =)
    You're one of my biggest inspirations. You are beautiful, inside and out.

    I remember back when I found your stream, everything you did was surreal and manipulated, you did it so well. Over your 365 we have seen you progress into someone who cannot only produce stunning manipulations, but someone who can take amazing photos too. To be honest, I think we should crown you the "Queen of Golden Hour". (Your darn lucky, we only get it like twice a year :\ haha)

    We all know you and your photos will go a very long way. But I can't wait to see what you come up with in the future, now the restrictions of 365 are gone. I'll look forward to it! Good luck :)"

    I have waited until the end of your project to write this. I am proud to say that I have followed majority of your project. You have grown so much as a person and a photographer, it has been an honor to follow your footsteps and your photography as you learn more things about not only the world, but about yourself.

    You speak in a way that is so different. You speak your pure thoughts. You believe, which inspires so many other people in this world right now.

    Your photography has expanded massively since day one. Your photos speak for themselves, with a beginning, middle, and end. The way in which you express yourself is stunning and you are able to capture these precious moments in your life. Your photostream is your diary, your journey which many has followed you to see your progress until today. Day 365

    I hope you will make it far in this world. Please know you have so many friends here supporting your art. Thank you for everything. Thank you for inspiring me and thank you for being yourself.

Lauren has the ability to put so much into her pictures, and she's definitely earned the title of 'master of light'. Seriously, go look at her light pictures and I promise you'll be blown away.

    "dear viewer,
    if you are reading this, i must tell you to stop and go

    Look at this girl's photostream! seriously, it's worth it. lauren is one

    Amazing

    Utterly talented girl. I mean, she

    Really should have a nobel prize in photography for

    Every photo that she posts.

    Not only is she absolutely fantastic at photo manipulations, but her discovery of

    Natural light has taken her photography even farther. now,

    If you think i'm over exaggerating, stop and look at her work like i told
    you to do at the beginning of this essay. anyway i

    Cannot express enough how genius she is when it comes to directing natural light (and that's difficult to do since

    Only the almighty one himself can really do so), but every one of her photos is even more exquisite than the last.

    Listen, viewer, to

    Exactly what i am saying; lauren

    Withrow is pure talent!!!! she is such an

    Inspiration to so many flickrites out there. her photos are
    never ever boring. each is absolutely incredible. each is pure magic. no really, her work is magical. in

    This world, i don't know what

    He has in store for you, but i know you are definitely going places. and if it's a career in photography or not, always

    Remember: you are an inspiration.

    On that note, i would like to

    Wish you the best of luck down the road, and when you're a famous photographer don't forget about your little flickrites! :)

I could probably go on and on about Lauren, and this is just some of the words that describes her as a person, and the job she's doing. She has the most beautiful 365 set I've ever seen, and her Photoshop skills is beyond anything I could ever imagine.

    Even if I don't know Lauren personally I can tell that she's a wonderful person. I say this because she gives so much of herself through her pictures. She is so REAL! She is the person that made me decide to join Flickr in the first place, she made me believe in my work. She made me regain my confidence. The one thind I admire her the most of is that she is not afraid of believing.

    Lauren is three years younger then me, but she is the one that I look up to. I know if I got to meet Lauren, we would get a long - because I can tell she has a really good heart. I can't explain it, I just know it.
    I wish you all the best, and I know you'll do great in the future.

So I showed her your photos and she was blown away, just as I am, just as we all are. you take the photos I dream of taking. you capture the emotions I wish I could capture. you are the photographer I wish I could be. thank you for that, for showing me how beautiful the world is through your lens."

    You constantly inspire me everyday and saying thank you could never do the trick on how much gratitude i have for you. You are the person that brought me to photography and the emotion behind it. Since the day i stumbled upon your amazing stream i've become addicted to it. Literally addicted. You amaze me. You push me. You Motivate me. More than any other person has before. Your pictures are so heart warming yet at the same time they send chills to my bones. I can't wait to see what more you have in store for the rest of your 365 but not a day goes by i wont be watching.


    Thank you Lauren, for teaching me something so special and so powerful.

    Thank you thank you thank you."

    "wowww so I don't even know what to say back to that Lauren.
    umm today I looked at myself in the mirror and thought dang I need to work out because I definitely don't want to get fat and be unmotivating. I think I've been eating too much junk.
    umm I hope I can be the best father to your little food baby. I need to practice on being a man though, that might be a little hard. maybe I can get some tips from [insert names here of 2 girls on volleyball team that are sorta manly]
    so I'm thinking you probably SHOULDN'T approve this but hey, if you do, people will either think we're retarded and stupid or totally awesome. so IF you DO approve this here are some things for people to know if they ever read it:
    1. one day at practice, Lauren said she had a food baby, we named "it" and imagined that I was the dad and she was the mom, don't go any further than that, we're not gross, we were just girls with imaginations but not gross pervs, we're only friends.
    2. don't try and figure out what we're talking about. unlike most of you, I actually know Lauren on a day to day basis so I'm not some stalker on here.

    back to Lauren: really? do baby's talk like that? wowww I want my child to speak like that. ahhhhha um well I love you friend and we will speak soon. tomorrow in fact, as we play volleyball together."

I seriously spent hours once looking at her progress from her beginning photos to now, and I love that she developed her own unique style and has wonderful, wonderful, wonderful self-portraits. I once heard someone refer to her as Queen of the Light, and the title is absolutely fitting :) also she plays volleyball, best sport ever..keep it up Lauren, you're fantastic!!"

I could have possibly opened any picture and I would have found something I liked in it. seriously.
    your photos are full of feelings, of hopes and dreams, of memories. they are full of life. there are some that represent my state of mind while looking at them, and some that make me think beyond.
    you probably don't know how much I enjoy looking at your newest pictures every day, and I would like nothing better than comment all of them to tell you how much I like them, but sometimes I can't find any words to describe what I feel. nevertheless I already told you I will comment your future works, because you deserve to get such feedback and I will definitely keep my word.

I really do come to your photostream everyday, because I look forward to seeing new photos from you. I come for inspiration, which I inevitably leave your photostream with, and regardless of how many times I have seen a photo of yours , I do not get bored of it. In fact the more I look at your photos, the more inspired I feel, and the more I absolutely love them. You are beautiful, and so are your photos.

    Just recently I was looking at your photostream, going far back to when you first began your 365 and I realized that you’re one of the few people that started off so strong.

    I have been looking at your photos for quite some time now and I have seen your style change, I have seen your talent grow, and all through this you have been one of my biggest inspirations on Flickr.

    ""Laurennicole81" is a beautiful person inside and out. She is creative and is able to conjure up amazing images, some of which are beyond most of our wildest dreams. Her and I both joined Flickr around the same time and she has far surpassed anything I could ever have imagined anyone being capable of creating. Even when she believes she has shared her worst, she never ceases to amaze all her contacts with yet another stunning piece. Her style, composition and creativity abound and she is somehow able to transport you from your computer into her magical world, where possibilities are endless and inspiration abounds. She is a truly unique and gifted photographical artist. If you have not yet added her as your contact, you are surely missing out on history in the making.

    Thank you, Lauren, for all the time and energy you put into *every* image you create - whether straight out of the camera or 'manipulated'. And thank you for being such an awe-inspiring person (not just because of your images either!! =) I'm so glad to have met you and urge you to remember me when you are rich and famous in the world of photography!! =)

    "Lauren Nicole's stream is one of those few streams in flickr which is full of mind blowing creativity. She not only comes up with wonderful creative ideas, but also executes them flawlessly. You will be amazed at the level of detail in her work once you start watching her photos closely. I love the way her work expresses her feeling & emotions... truly brilliant... I wish her all theeeee best to reach greater heights in life... Never give up photography... God bless you..."

    "Well thanks for helping me discover this testimonial stuff, and I would have written one for you earlier... if I was smart enough to discover it.
    Well anyways I'll get to the point, which is basically 4 words.
    You are photoshop queen.
    Honestly, I have no clue how you do it, but whatever you do, just keep going :D"

    "I've fallen in love with Lauren's work since she began her 365s and oh how she's growing. At only 15 years her work is incredibly impressive and I can honestly say that I'm really looking forward to watching her learn and stretch her wings throughout this year.

    Keep up the great work and I'll keep an eye on the latest releases : )"
