I believe children to transform our lives for the better. Whether conceived through your womb or through adoption, children are a gift. I believe each season of childhood is fleeting, however, no season is like the baby season. They will never be as small, as wrinkly, as sleepy, or snuggly.
My desire is to capture genuine moments of connection, tender joy and affection, family cuddles, and every little detail. To create images itching to be printed and enjoyed for years to come.
These moments would never come again but photographs will bring back the essence of those days.
'm so excited you're here! You'll read "nostalgia" throughout my work because I deeply desire to preserve sentimental memories that allow you to savor the fleeting baby years.
A snapshot into my life

Alex and I are intentional about family rhythms.
Saturdays are family days; we hike, visit a locally bakery, snuggle up to a movie, and read books.
We strive to take our kiddos on individual dates monthly.
Alex and I strive to spend 1-1 time weekly because we believe the root to a healthy family is a healthy marriage.
We are far from perfect but we desire to create a safe and welcoming space for our kids to flourish.
My adventurous family!

Some may refer to me as a "coffee snob" which I take zero offense to. I love coffee!
I appreciate ethically made coffee, brewed properly, and with zero cream or sugar. Hand poured is always best!
My love for coffee grew while I was dating Alex; most of our dates were centered on visiting new coffee shops and testing their coffee. We still love to try new coffee and we love a comfy shop!
black & hand poured please!

I love flowers! The more colorful, the better.
I love having a colorful bouquet in my home and supporting local florists and flower farmers.
I love using fresh flowers in my sessions. Whether I bring you a bouquet or we venture to a local flower farm, I think it's a timeless piece that adds beauty and a pop of color.

From my home, to my work, & even my personal style: I love clean, simple, & minimal everything!
I love organizing and styling my home minimally & I love a clean space with intentional details; like pops of color.
I love how the light fills a white space. This is how I photograph; with a clean, minimal, and simple style to showcase your family connection & the newborn features.
my three beautiful babies!
all things minimal & simple
Lauren did an amazing job with our newborn photos! She was great from start to finish- detail oriented, easy to communicate with, professional, and timely with getting our pictures back. She brought over her beautiful dresses... It was nice to not have to worry about finding an outfit in the midst of giving birth. Lauren handled our newborn with such care and love. The photos are so beautiful and we will cherish them forever.

Nothing but positive things to say about Lauren as a person and her incredible photography talent. We chose her to be our Asheville newborn photographer and would highly recommend! She was more than understanding, supportive and flexible when our son ended up in the NICU. The newborn session itself was perfect and stress free. She made me (the mommy) feel like a princess from the gift bag, dress selection, morning of treat/coffee and pampering. The hair and make-up were just what I needed to feel my best right after having our baby. She was able to make us all comfortable in our own home. She was able to include our three dogs and my mother for gorgeous newborn photos that we will cherish forever. Added bonus- she is the sweetest and was a pleasure to meet :) Thank you, Lauren!
Lauren is a dream come true for mamas and babies. She is so amazing and thoughtful at what she does. I got my newborn pictures later than suggested (12 week baby) but she still made sure I was pampered and captured all the details of my baby too. From the first consultation up to the session, she is there to find out your wants and goals for your session and made them come true with a stres-free experience. I am so excited to continue working with her! Truly the best Asheville newborn photographer!
Lauren was so amazing to work with! My family and I came through Asheville and wanted family photos in the mountains, and Lauren was so helpful finding the perfect spot at the Biltmore.
She made the entire session so fun and my 3 kids (7,4, and 1) had so much fun. I love that she took the time to connect with them, it made everything so much better!
Seriously the best family photographer in Asheville. Thank you, Lauren!
Lauren made me feel beautiful for my maternity pictures when I felt a little larger than life. She did such an amazing job with my 4 year old & is just an all around joy to work with. She captured our personalities & produced beautiful shots. So happy we get to keep these little treasures to look back on!
You Deserve the best
The sweetness of nostalgia, how it brings back the scent and the heart aching joy of becoming a mother, time and time again, as you look at the baby albums and your walls adorned with photos.
Printed photographs bring a sense of belonging to our children. Photographs say, " you are loved, you are valued, you are home." One day, your kids will thank you for the printed photographs.
