She needs to secure a place in the top three of the heat.
If she does reach the top three, her fate will then be in the hands of the panel of judges, which includes Miss England 2012, Charlotte Holmes, who will decide if she has enough model potential, to receive a place in the Miss England semi-final.
Lauren said: "I really enjoyed my photo shoot and hope that my shot proves that I have all the makings for not only a top model but a future Miss England.
"I hope my local community will get behind me and help me fulfill my dream of competing in Miss England."
When asked what they are looking for in the winner of Miss Fresh Photographic heat four, Miss England director, Angie Beasley said: "As a model it is important that you are photogenic, and that your beauty can be captured by the camera and translated into a picture.
"Not everyone is naturally photogenic, so this qualifier aims to find those girls who look great behind the camera as well as in front of one."
The winner of the Miss Fresh Photographic Heat four will go on to compete in the Miss England semi-final, where she will be in with the chance of securing a place in the Miss England grand final.
The ultimate winner of Miss England 2013 will spend her year raising awareness for various charities and will receive a whole host of prizes worth £30,000, including a luxury holiday to Mauritius the dream holiday destination and a place in Miss World 2013.
In the last three years over £350,000 has been raised by Miss England contestants to help disadvantaged children around the UK.
Lauren needs support to help win the Miss Fresh Photographic Heat four title.
