learn camera 101 - business coaching- work with me
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? Regardless, I'm here to help!
After receiving several 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.
REGARDLESS OF THE SEASON YOU'RE IN,
EVERYONE COULD USE A LITTLE GUIDANCE.
I ask that you please fill out my inquiry form on my contact page. Once I receive this, we will plan a complimentary 20 minute zoom consultation where we will get to know one another and see how I can serve you best.
This gives me the details I need to better assist you.
I love helping others grow and I love encouraging and supporting local photographers, I'm 100% community over competition. With that being said, I do not offer business coaching to professional newborn photographers located in Asheville, at this time. But, I would love to meet you and encourage you however I can.
1. first, let's chat!
2. one-on-one mentoring
This is an in person option where we will spend 4 hours together. These 4 hours are customized based on your needs. We can meet over coffee and discuss all things business, I can review all of your work, your workflow, your website, etc. We can set up a model call and you can shoot alongside me.
The options are endless.
This package starts at $800 with payment plan options.
Whether you want to learn how to use your DSLR, learn how to use manual mode, or learn how to use film, I'm here to help.
I offer online and in-person options.
This is $300 for one hour lesson. Every hour added is $100. Or choose to learn for 45 minutes and add a model call session to photograph alongside me for a total of $500.
3. camera 101
This package is for professional, tax paying photographers, and new to business photographers.

4. business coaching
If you're a local college student who needs course credit or internship experience, let's chat.
I offer paid positions for admin work and day of session assistants.
OR, if you're a local photographer who would like to be on my "call list" we can plan a consultation. These are experienced and professional photographers I refer my inquiring clients to who can't afford me and/or if I'm booked. I book the client and edit the images to fit my style, you shoot day of.
2. join my team
Whether you want to learn from me or work with me, let's plan a complimentary zoom call to get to know one another and choose a package that is best for you.
Let me know when you inquire if you'd like to be one of my photographers, become an assistant, do admin work, or simply learn.
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.
in-home newborn session
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!
Thank you for your interest in hiring me as your Asheville photographer.
My time is limited each month so it's never too early to inquire.
I look forward to talking with you soon!
