The Experience

Having Showboat Media Co. as a livestock show photographer is an experience like no other. My approach is genuinely authentic, capturing the essence of each moment with an artistic flair. Behind the lens, I exude a passion for my craft that makes the entire experience fun and engaging. As my team roams the showgrounds, we have an eye for spotting those little moments that often go unnoticed—a tender interaction between a showman and their animal, a gleeful smile after a successful class, or a moment of pure pride and accomplishment from grandma in the stands. Our ability to freeze these fleeting instants into timeless snapshots not only documents the event but also showcases the deep bond between exhibitors and their animals. Working with us feels like being part of a collaborative journey, where every shot becomes a cherished memory etched in the hearts of those involved.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based out of Marysville, Kansas and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your livestock, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to travel to your show!

When will exhibitors get their photos?

Backdrop photos are guaranteed to be up on the website within the same day (sometimes this means midnight, but I always get them up before going to bed). The additional ring and candid photos will be up within 48 hours. Exhibitors and families will be able to purchase photos in real time and receive an email with an instant download link.

"We scheduled a quick session with Lauren during a livestock show and it was the best decision ever! She helped us pick a beautiful location and made the entire process a breeze! The pictures were stunning and captured our personalities perfectly. Lauren is a true professional and I would recommend her for couple’s pictures to livestock and everything in between!"

"I’ve known Lauren for a few years now and every time I’ve asked her for a session, she is quick to respond with a date and time, shows up excited to work and is super passionate about making your vision come to life. She is so fun to work with and I can honestly say that every smile and laugh in the pictures she’s taken of me is genuine because of her great attitude and sense of humor during the session. She creates a very comfortable and casual environment which has put me at ease even in front of the camera lens. Lauren is also an extremely hard worker and returns pictures quickly and edited to a tee. She’s great gal that cares about her work and I would recommend her to anyone looking for high quality pictures and a great experience!"
