Beauty, fashion, lifestyle, stills, commercial work, personal projects, collaborations--photographer Lauren Krysti is always working, always smiling, and always up for a fresh challenge. Originally from Chicago, Lauren has made Minneapolis her home since 2009. Since that time, she has established herself as a force within the Twin Cities scene and has garnered recognition for her rare combination of a relentless, enthusiastic drive coupled with a calming, personable energy.  Although she has nearly thirty years of industry experience working with retailers, agencies, publications, and designers, she still finds ways to surprise herself and her clients with photos that are on trend with an added edge.

Lauren’s lifelong love of energetic collaboration led her to team up with Melanie Haroldson. Together, they wanted to create a space that would encourage interpersonal connection and creative cooperation.  The result (of course!) was PegBoard.
