Let's work together

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

more about me

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."

- Megan N.

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!
