Hi! I am Lauren. I am a newly married to my high school sweetheart who is now an officer in the Navy. I have always loved drawing and painting and once I reached high school, I was always hounding people, especially my family, with my camera. (Sorry to you all!)


In college I studied Mass Communications with a concentration in journalism. I learned many facets of design and was in charge of the student paper. Through classes, as well as trial and error, I have much experience behind the camera as well as the principles that come together to make a great photo; not least of which being the amazing people on the other side of the camera that I am so blessed to capture in time.

I am a natural light photographer and I seek to emulate the timeless nature film through my photos and the way I edit each session. Every person has a story to tell and I seek to tell that story with every session I take part in. 

We are currently based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. I travel often to Central Illinois, Wheeling, WV, and am up for traveling just about anywhere! Just ask!

If you are interested in having me photograph a special time in your life, please reach out to me using the form below! I can't wait to hear from you!

I love happy colors, Jesus, & joyful people.



I was born the first child of two awesome people! There are now a total of six kids and most of us are pretty darn cool. ;)

I was homeschooled until I graduated high school and I loved it!


My parents signed up me up for art classes at a young age which really brought a ton of joy into my life and I think led me to photography!
