Let's work together

Washington DC
Family Photographer


Based in Alexandria, Virginia, I specialize in photographing families, newborn, and maternity in the Washington DC metro area. When I'm not taking photographs, you can find me teaching English language learners, strolling down the streets of Old Town, Alexandria with an ice cream cone in hand, or playing with my sweet dogs, Marlowe and Pearl.

more about me

Imagine a photography session where the focus is on capturing the genuine laughter, the tight hugs, and even the silly faces your kids make. That's the genuine experience you'll get with me, a family photographer based right between the heartbeats of Washington DC and Alexandria. As an elementary school teacher, I bring a special touch of patience and playfulness that lets your little ones lead the way. From maternity moments to newborn snuggles, and of course, your family pets, I capture the authentic beauty in every chapter of your family's story.

I know how busy life can get. 

Whether it's a stunning piece of wall art that brightens your home or a meticulously crafted album that tells your unique story, I handle every aspect with care and dedication, ensuring your memories are timelessly captured.

My commitment is to preserve these moments, so even as life rushes by, you can hold onto these beautiful reminders for years to come.


We had a great time working with Lauren and received photos that we really love! We did a session in Old Town on a very cold day in early Spring. She had a few locations picked out, but was also very responsive to spontaneity and feedback throughout the session. 




"I am typically an unwilling participant to having my photo taken, but Lauren made everything extremely comfortable and fun."

Kind words



Lauren is incredible! Super down to earth and helped ease camera-shy nerves. We had no ideas for poses and she walked us through the session seamlessly. Our 10-month old was starting to go through stranger danger but was comfortable around her and she got some great shots of him!
