I'm Lauren, an Alexandria, Virginia based family photographer and teacher! On weekdays, you can find me in a classroom teaching kindergarten and first grade English language learners.
As an educator of young children, I understand patience and flexibility, and let's be honest... embracing a little chaos. It's important to me to create an environment in which children feel comfortable enough to be themselves and have fun during their session.
I've loved capturing moments in time for as long as I can remember. My parents bought me my first camera and I would walk around aimlessly, taking thousands of pictures. I'm usually ten steps behind everyone else because I've noticed the way the golden hour light is leaking through the leaves in a tree or the way someone's nose crinkles as they laugh.
I'm here to help preserve those special moments for you!
Those little moments in time, ones that I just want to hold onto for as long as I can... photography gives me a way to do just that.
These are the moments for you to cherish.
A few of my favorite things...
I believe every family photography session should be brimming with laughter and joyful moments. Don't hold back—be your authentic selves and let the fun flow!
I believe in capturing beautiful moments through my lens, whether they unfold in ordinary settings or amidst delightful chaos.
Every family has a one-of-a-kind narrative, and it's an honor for me as a photographer to help you tell yours.
What matters most is the bond we create, ensuring you're at ease in front of my camera. Your comfort allows for more authentic, fun, and memorable moments that deserve to be preserved.
