Hi and welcome! I'm Lauren! Portrait photographer, Christ follower, wife to the most incredible man, momma to two little peanuts, lover of memories, passionate about learning and obsessed with REST.
(Hey! A mom can be honest, right?!)
I picked up my first real camera shortly after my husband and I got married in 2015. We were planning our domestic dream vacation to California. As a newlywed, I wanted to capture each moment and make sure they lasted forever. I fell in love with the way the pictures made me feel like I could do just that. After our trip I quickly realized my passion for photography and my desire to be able to share it with others.
As my love for photography continued to grow, my career behind a computer screen began to feel meaningless. I left the office every day feeling drained. I felt like my passions and abilities were not being utilized. I wanted something more. Through this season of my life, God was changing my heart and preparing me for something much bigger. After six years of my career in logistics, God called me into the most beautiful, fulfilling and exhausting job of all - motherhood. Talk about feeling passionate!
Now as a stay-at-home mom, I spend my days striving for balance between time with the Lord, loving on my family, tending to our never-ending piles of laundry, and taking pictures.
I'm so happy that God has allowed space in my life for photography and helping others hold onto their most precious moments in life.
