My sessions are all about connection. I want our time together to be about you and your loved ones. It’ll be about putting away all the distractions and focusing on each other and what makes life special right now so that I can document those memories for you. I want you to look back at these photos years from now and remember the way your daughter would grab your pinky finger or the way your son scrunched his nose when he laughed. I want you to soak in the memory of you holding your beautiful, big belly or your husband whispering silly things in your ear. Although my goal is to capture the real and authentic moments, I will give you prompts to help guide you and then watch and snap away as the real interactions and moments unfold. I'm a pro-child chaser and enjoy capturing the chaos!

It’s important to note that my focus is on your family engaging with one another and not on smiling at the camera saying “cheese!” I will definitely get a few of those holiday card shots but most of your gallery will be shots of you interacting whether that’s laughing or deep, soulful shots with each other.

PRICING

I'm excited to offer my client closet to mamas and their minis! I have collected dresses and outfits with beautiful textures, warm & neutral colors, and flowy movement. Women's sizes range from XS to 2XL, baby & girls sizes newborn to 8 years old, and a small selection of baby and toddler boy items. 

You will also get access to my online styling tool called Style & Select! It's a helpful website that allows you to give the details and preferences of your family and then it generates beautifully coordinated outfits for everyone. It even gives you links on where to buy everything. It's that easy! You might already have similar items already in your closet to use. You're more than welcome to use this tool yourself or I can curate the outfits for you and send you the results.



CLIENT CLOSET & STYLING ASSISTANCE

All my outdoor sessions last up to 60 minutes and take place during Golden Hour which is the hour right before sunset or right after sunrise. The time of year and the location we choose during our planning process will determine the exact time we start. The images you see on my website and social media are a reflection of how gorgeous the lighting is during Golden Hour which is why I do not shoot at any other times when outdoors. I know this can be difficult for families with young kiddos and early bedtimes but I promise a little flexibility for this occasion will be worth it. Try to adjust the nap schedule that day and bribe, bribe, bribe! 

SESSION INFO

All outdoor sessions are shot during Golden Hour which is the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset. The lighting is soft and easy to work with and it compliments just about everyone and everything in its path! Timing changes depending on the year and can vary a tad depending on the location we choose.

In-Home sessions typically start mid-morning. 

WHAT TIME DOES MY SESSION START?

Outdoor sessions will take place at a location within the Phoenix area that we choose together during the planning process. It depends on what vibe you are looking for…desert, river, urban, etc. Newborn sessions take place in your home, outdoors, or in a natural light studio (additional rental fee required).

WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?

Travel fees start at $50 for locations greater than 30 miles outside of 85296.

WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?

Yes, all sessions require a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract in order to hold your date and session time. The remaining balance is due the day of the shoot. Contract and invoices will be signed and paid electronically.

IS THERE A RETAINER FEE TO BOOK?

My turnaround time is a maximum of 3 weeks although I try to get them done as quickly as possible. Busy seasons such as fall and spring tend to take the full 3 weeks. 

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

Your images will be delivered via an online gallery where you will be able to download high-resolution images meant for printing along with web-sized images which are perfect for sharing on social media.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?

Absolutely! I WANT you to print them and hang them all over your home! You will receive a print release so you may print at any lab of your choice. You can also print directly through your online gallery through my professional lab.

CAN I PRINT MY IMAGES?

You can either book through my booking calendar or contact me to discuss availability.

FAQ

“I just received photos from our mini session with Lauren, we had to sneak a quick session in before she moved to Arizona. My husband always feels a little stiff during photos and she did an amazing job making him comfortable and relaxed, and it definitely shows in the results. She captured our emotions and interaction together beautifully for our maternity photos. The lighting and angles she created with the amazing Sekrit Theater just blew my mind. I am so bummed she has moved out of state! So Arizona peeps, book her if you get the opportunity. I would have loved to continue working with her to capture our growing family in years to come. We may make a trip to Az in the future and reach out, who knows. :)”

"Lauren took the most gorgeous photos of our growing family during a maternity shoot a couple of months ago, and most recently came to our house for a newborn shoot. Each time the photos came out so stunning! She’s particularly great at capturing those adorable but fleeting expressions of our 2.5-year-old, and adding her baby sister to the mix just made the photos doubly sweet! Thank you, Lauren, for capturing our growing family in such a beautiful way!”

- Leslie

“Lauren did an amazing job capturing the little everyday moments I never want to forget with my daughter. She was so easy to work with and even lent a helping hand with snacks and toddler entertainment to keep my little one happy throughout our shoot :) Would recommend her hands down!”
