The beaches at Santa Barbara - US

Tranquil and graceful. The pictures of American photographer Lauren Ross are distinguishable. Her eye for feminine beauty came from her mother, who’s also a photographer. When Lauren was a child, she would assist her. She grew up with a small dark room in the basement of her childhood home. But more importantly, her mother taught her to observe light and develop her own taste. Lauren lives and works in Santa Barbra, California with her husband John and his three children Rowan, Sabina and May.

Where’s your favourite place?  
The beaches near my home in Santa Barbara.

Why is this your favourite place?  
Easiest place to go and escape it all. There is nothing like the sound of the ocean.  

When and how did you experience the place for the first time?
Years ago with friends.

Things you usually do when you're there?
Our kids play for hours in the shore break, surf or dig holes in the sand. We eat burritos at sunset. We surf. We cold plunge. We walk the dog. We wash off the day. We gather with friends and share bottles of wine. Pretty much everything! I feel very fortunate to live here.  

Is it a place you like to visit by yourself or with someone? 
Very much both. We go as a family often and meet up with friends and I often walk alone while my dog, Maybell takes her time.
