“I love the moment when a client sees the final product and they tell me they were so happy with it that it made them cry.” -Jeanne Lauren
When Jeanne started the business in 2001 it allowed her to be free & have fun with her craft. Her love of color, texture, light & sound helps make her work more beautiful. She loves to capture moments on camera & video. One of her biggest assets may be how much she loves being around people. She loves trying to engage the clients, or just capture moments when no one is looking through her journalistic style.
She loves being part of an event no matter how big or small. She has a good understanding of what makes an event special: consistent attention to detail coupled with creativity, sensitivity to the needs & wishes of the client, & an insider’s knowledge of available venue and resources.
Before starting her own business, she co-chaired the Ybor City Blues Festival 2 years in 1998 and 1999 to help raise funds for (HARC) the Hillsborough Association for Retarded Citizens. It was a crash course in event planning, from television interviews, to finding the right bands, acquiring permits and designing graphic art for the t-shirts. She was involved in every aspect, and loved every minute of it. Since then she has been able to volunteer & be on the board of several charitable fund raisers as well as enjoying her profession as a photographer, floral designer and event planner.
Jeanne lives, works and enjoys life in the Tampa Bay area. She has been happily married to her husband Robert for 15 years, has one daughter & one stepson.
