Exploring Life & Business with Lauren Peet of LP Pet Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Peet.

Hi Lauren, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’ve always been a crazy animals lover. As soon as I graduated from Belmont, I adopted my first ever pup, Willa, and she is the love of my life. I’ve been taking photos of her ever since and have continued to get many compliments from people.

After two years of shooting my own animals, I now have five (2 dogs, 3 cats), and those of friends and family, I decided to start my own photography business and start taking photos for others and their pets.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I only started booking shoots one month ago and things have been going really well thus far. I was already ingrained in the dog community here in Nashville which was super helpful when I came to finding clients. It’s also helped that the holidays are right around the corner and people want Christmas shoots!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about LP Pet Photography?
I started LP Photography as a side hustle to my other company, LP Social. As LP Social, I work as a digital strategist helping artists and companies grow their social media and overall digital footprint. This knowledge proved to be very helpful in starting up my photography business. I am able to do all my own marketing which has been great thus far.

I had been taking photos of my pets for years and I wanted to start doing it for others as well. While my specialty is definitely in pet portraits, I’ve been doing more family shoots including pets, which has been really fun. I am very proud of the quality that I have been able to deliver thus far, and I hope to continue to improve my skills as I keep shooting.

While I love photography, even more so, I love animals. I’ve made it a point to volunteer my time with local rescues, taking photos of adoptable pets to help them find their forever home. The animal rescue will always be part of my business.

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
As hard as the pandemic has been on everyone, I’ve found that people have really gravitated towards their pets more than ever.
