"Lauren was a dream to work with!!! She gave us just enough guidance to help us shake the awkwardness, be ourselves, and have fun! These photos are the perfect representation of our love and I’m so happy to have them forever!"

Jessiana (Couple's Session)


"Lauren was super responsive and so easy to work with. She did such a great job photographing our whole family. She kept our children entertained & smiling the whole time which is no easy feat!"

-Lori (Family Session)

Telling your story is truly a joy.

Through your Emotive Storytelling Session, I will be there to capture the little moments while you interact authentically with your loved ones. A session typically begins with some posed portraits. After we capture the more classic images, our session will become more relaxed to give you a chance to have fun as I take candid photographs. My deepest desire is to capture you and the ones you are with at your best; genuinely enjoying each others company, making new memories together, and being true to who you are. If you have trouble being in front of the camera (like me!) don’t worry! I am here to guide and direct you throughout the entire session to create space for authentic and emotive moments to happen naturally.

Your Emotive Storytelling Session will give you memories to look back on that bring a heartfelt reaction, making moments of passion, laughter and fun standstill to be revisited year after year.

Each Emotive Storytelling Session will provide you with images you’ll cherish. I aim to capture moments of each person individually, as well as interacting with each other in various pairings. I’ll be sure to capture moments of siblings being silly together, parents sharing soft moments with their children, and parents showing the spark that initially brought them together.

Let's get your story on the books!
