The Details

up-level your business

So, you're ready to start a photography career? Or perhaps you already have a business but you can't seem to get hired by your ideal clients? Maybe you're a mom who just wants to learn how to use that DSLR camera you were gifted years ago, to photograph your every day? 

First off, why should you hire me to help you?

I'm Lauren! I'm a wife, a mother to three littles, coffee enthusiast, and lover of simplicity. I picked up my parents camera when I was 12 years old and I quickly fell in love with photographing our every day, the details of our home together, and the little things that brought me joy. This led me to receive a scholarship to study Photojournalism at The Corcoran in Washington DC, where I'm originally from. College is where I grew a love for film photography; learning to slow down and create art. 

However, it wasn't until 2015 when I became a mother that my passion turned into a business. I wanted to stay home with my kids and I wanted to create timeless portraits to be cherished and enjoyed by families for generations. I wanted others to have beautiful images of their growing children to enjoy and reminisce over. I realized, it was a gift to be shared.

Throughout the years I have developed a love for community and for hospitality. Two things our home is centered on. Which led me here. After receiving emails and DM's from other photographers and momtographers asking questions about my work, my business, and photography, I wanted to create a space where others could learn and grow. 

I'm not perfect and my business isn't perfect but if it wasn't for others, my business wouldn't be where it is today. We all need help and we all need community. 

I would love to assist you, however I am able to. 

I ask that you fill out my inquiry form so you are able to have my questionnaire emailed to you. This gives me the details I need to better assist you before our first zoom meeting. 

The first discussion is over a complimentary 20 minute zoom consultation where we will get to know one another and see how I can serve you best.
