behind the lens

My love for photography was always in the back of my mind, but only became a real life thing this year. I knew right away that I wanted to focus on motherhood, lifestyle, and babies. God was laying it on my heart, and I felt called to embrace our gift as women.

Hi friends! I'm Lauren, a motherhood + lifestyle photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. My husband, David, and I are nestled in a sweet suburban area where we share lots of laughs and love with our 2 adorable rescue pups, Gibson + Koda. Our families are all located in VA as well, so when we aren't working we are spending time with our sweet nieces and nephews, making memories. I have a great love for Jesus, and a big place in my heart for animals.  

There is beauty and strength in motherhood. . .

Extra special details that make your day uniquely you.

KIND WORDS

"Lauren is an absolute pleasure to work with! She is patient, great with kids, and really made our shoot comfortable and fun. She has the ability to capture beautiful moments when you least expect it. She truly loves what she does and it shows in her work. We are elated with how our newborn session turned out, and we cannot wait to book another session. Thank you so much, Lauren!"

"These pictures are memories that we will treasure and cherish forever. Lauren made us feel so comfortable during the shoot and our pictures really encompass the "lifestyle" vibe of maternity and newborn pictures that I love. Our galleries are full of a variety of warm, light and airy pictures that perfectly highlight my family. We definitely look forward to continuing family photoshoots with Lauren".

"Lauren took my maternity and newborn pictures of my sweet baby and I could not have been happier! She brought so much energy and made me feel totally relaxed and beautiful. With my baby, she was so gentle and positioned her in precious ways to create amazing pictures. The final products from both shoots were stunning and I will absolutely be using Lauren again!".
