Lauren: photographer

I'm a portrait and wedding photographer, a mom, lover of love, laughter and traveling. Most days you can find me in my sweats running around the house playing with my four awesome kids. We spend a lot of our time making up games to play around the house and eating Chic-Fil-A or Crazy Bowl & Wraps, which are my favorite non-home cooked meal. Or, we all pile in my King-sized bed and watch action movies, we are HUGE Marvel Universe fans. On those special days I get total "me time" I enjoy hanging out with my girlfriends, going for drinks and bowling.
I have always been in love with photography and studied it in college. I have taken my camera to places all over the world just to bring back a little bit of each places uniqueness with me. Being able to show the world love in all its many forms through the moments I see through my camera keeps my passion for it alive and strong. I am in love with love and a hopeless romantic, so capturing your love story on your special day or special moments with your family or friends is the greatest honor to me. I hope to give everyone I work with a little bit of my passion and love for life and love in each portrait I take that they can keep with them to remember and share their special moments for generations to come.

Your special moments deserve to live off of a screen. Your pictures should be shared beyond social media, which is why Im a HUGE advocate for prints, wall art, albums and etc. It is the reason I automatically give a studio credit towards prints and etc, I want every person I am fortunate towork with to walk away with tangible portraits from some of their most important days. There is something special about holding an album or photo and going back to that very moment. There is something indescribably awesome about going through old photo albums, photo books, or photo boxes and holding and looking at old photos.  That is something that social media just can't provide us.
