When Lauren and Kelsey, her social media strategist, reached out to me regarding her brand photoshoot I knew it was going to be a day full of fun, luxury and inspiring content.

We decided to do a 1/2 day brand shoot based on the variety of locations that the team suggested for her brand. Lauren recently went through a rebrand with a local designer and we wanted to make sure her branding photos helped showcase her new branding. A few things Lauren did really well were: trying out outfits 3-4 days before (guess what, she ended up going and getting a few more pieces), having her makeup professionally done, planning enough time for her photos, accessorizing, bringing props, using a Pinterest board for inspiration and not rushing herself.

Lauren is a wife, mother of 3 and a real estate agent. Her love for real estate, specifically, new construction, began at a young age, when her parents built her childhood home. That started the love of walking through construction sites and watching the evolution of plain wood into a house, then a home. In 2019, Laurens love of real estate and new construction came together. She got my license and negotiated her first “deal”, a new construction home in Shelby Twp for her and her family. Since then, real estate has been a fulfilling career, helping her clients find a house and make it their home.

We asked Lauren Grube of Gold and Gables a few questions for you to get to know her more 🙂

  • My fav Starbucks drink is a venti blonde latte with soy (bc is Starbucks really Starbucks if it doesn’t have at least 4 words in the order?)
    When I am not working or with my kids, I love to golf with my husband, go to gymnastics or sip wine with friends.
  • My favorite place to travel is Marco Island. I have been going there since I was born, it’s my happy place, its where I relax and have the best memories.
  • If i was an animal, I would be a cheetah. I move a mile a minute, I may look pretty but I am fierce and well, I wear a lot of cheetah!
