About Lauren


My name is Lauren Sharpton and I am the artist and photographer behind Freckles Photography. I have been in love with all things art since I can remember. I picked up a camera when I was about 14 years old and haven’t stopped photographing almost every aspect of my life since.

Life is full of moments that pass us by so quickly. I use my camera to record life, freeze time, and create everlasting moments. I love to capture folks in their element and in their everyday life.

I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Photography from Oregon State University in 2003 and obtained a Master in Fine Arts from John F. Kennedy University in 2007.

I currently live in Corvallis, Oregon with my husband, our dog, and our baby boy. I love the outdoors, go hiking almost everyday, bake cookies whenever I get a chance, and am always up for some popcorn and a movie.

I am excited to meet you and can’t wait to work with you!

      Hi Krista!

      It’s so great to hear from you! Thank you so much for all of the kind words. I’m having a lot of fun with photography and feel so lucky that I get to use my camera almost everyday. Those kids at PHS are lucky you are still teaching! I still look back on my time there from time to time and smile. I hope you are doing well.
