Rocking A Nude Photoshoot for ESPN with Lauren Chamberlain
Lauren Chamberlain grew up in Orange County, CA, and began playing softball at 8 years old. She competed as a D1 athlete, playing for Team USA, and now plays as a professional with titles including the Home Run Champion, Big 12 Female Athlete of the Year and Cowles Cup Champion. In 2015 Lauren broke NCAA Home Run Record with 95 HRs.
I first learned about Lauren through the 10th edition of the ESPN Body Issue. She posed nude and was radiating strength, power, beauty and confidence. Lauren’s ultimate goal is to help girls and women understand that they are capable and deserving of anything they put their mind to. We think she’s doing an amazing job of doing just that.
