a photography experience tailored to preserve your unique family story

Your family story is beautifully unique and deserves to be preserved. When you look back at your images, I want you to feel the joy and emotion from the moment, whether it was a simple kiss on the cheek, a belly laugh, or the memory of your baby's first tooth growing in.

I believe your images are made to be printed, to be placed in a frame hung on the walls of your home for years to come, or to be preserved in albums and passed down from this generation to the next.

I understand how hectic life can be and how your to-do list may seem never-ending. That's why I'm here to help – you can sit back and relax, and let me handle all the work.

Let's get the conversation started! After you inquire, we'll schedule an inquiry call.

During the call, we’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your session, and I'll answer any questions you might have about working together. Your session fee payment and signed contract reserve your session.

LET's CONNECT

Once your date is reserved, we'll connect again to chat about all of the details of your session. We'll go over the vision you have for your session, your preferred location, wardrobe selection, and a preview of all products you'll be able to purchase after your session.

If you need a location suggestion or assistance with choosing your families outfits, I'm there to help. I'll guide you through the entire process so that you feel ready for your session.

The week before your session we'll be in touch about the weather, any parking tips, and any finalizing any last minute details. Then, all you have to do is get everyone ready, show up, and be with your family!

Our matted prints are the perfect addition to your home decor. These high-quality prints come in luxurious, thick material that can be easily displayed on small easels or framed to your liking.

Preserve your beautiful images in a high-quality heirloom album. Each album is custom-designed and handcrafted to showcase the beauty of your family legacy for years to come.

Your beautiful images are backed, matted, and ready to be placed on your walls. We offer guidance throughout the design process to help you choose the perfect frame and it's placement in your home.

As soon as you'd like! I take on a limited amount of weekend sessions to serve my clients well, along with full time teaching.  Weekends tend to fill up quickly, especially during the spring and fall. 

Your session fee and contract will reserve your date. If something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

When should we book?

I never expect children to sit still for an hour! We'll all get to know each other first and let them get warmed up. If your little ones are squirmy or need to move around, we're going to follow their lead. We'll play some games and make the session fun, for both you and the kids. I'll guide you and your family throughout the entire session!

what if my children won't sit still for an hour?

The weather can be so unpredictable, but you can bet I'll be keeping a close watch leading up to our session. If rain is in the forecast, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule at no additional fee.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to view high resolution images. 

From there you'll choose your preferred collection at our ordering appointment. My goal is to help you choose artwork and products that will be displayed in your home instead of hidden in a folder on your phone.

How will we receive our photos?

Lauren is the best! She first took couple’s photos of my husband and me. We loved the photos so much we booked her again for a maternity shoot. When our son was born we did a newborn session with her. Most recently she took family pictures of us that we ended up using for our holiday cards. She is also a full time teacher so she is great with kids! Cannot recommend enough. Can’t wait for our next session with her.

Lauren did a lovely job capturing moments of joy and beauty for our newborn/family photoshoot. Before, during, and after she was kind, reassuring, and thoughtful. What more could you ask for?!

Lauren did both a maternity and newborn session for me and I couldn't be happier with the results! She is professional and gets really great shots, while also making us comfortable when we're not usually so in front of a camera! She even handled the dog's participation in both and made all of us look really good. Highly recommend!
