FAMILY PRICING GUIDE
"Photography is the beauty of life captured"
WHY CHOOSE LAUREN?
After having my second daughter, it soon became clear that I wasn't present in their lives. I don't mean on the day to the day... I mean in photographs! After scrolling through the hundreds of photos I've taken through the year, I couldn't find one family photo of all of us! I felt awful, I spent so much time behind the camera taking photos of my family and I didn't have ME to show for it!
I suddenly realized how important ME was! I will also be present in my kids lives, but also, I want them to have something of me years down the road.
I also believe that family photos shouldn't be stressful. So many people feel the pressure to look happy & beautiful in their photos... I'm going to tell you right now, I don't shoot how it looks, but instead capture how it feels.
How it feels to be a parent, how it feels to have a new baby, how it feels to be in it with your children, and how your everyday REALLY feels like. There is so much beauty in the everyday. I want to slow down time for you and make your session feel fun and easy.
THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER NOW!
Don't think of it as a session, it sounds so impersonal... we're friends now! I'm just coming to hang out with all of you and I just happen to have my camera. Whether it's for an hour or all day, I focus on making our time together comfortable and stress-free.
It is my job to capture the moments between you & your family.
Nothing scares me! Give me crying babies, uncooperative toddlers, skeptic dads, I aim to make everyone feel relaxed and enjoy the experience. All you have to do is show up and be yourselves! It's all about documenting the season of life you are in right now, big or small, old or young!
Each Session includes:
-travel to your home or preferred location
-all uploading, editing, and processing
-online gallery to proof, share and order prints from
The session fee does not include prints, products or digital images. Prints and products can be purchased separately after viewing your gallery.
for those families who just want to make some great pictures on location or in their homes. The first half of the session (15-20mins) is dedicated to relaxed family portraits, then the second is focused on a fun-family activity or exploring the space around us!
the perfect amount of time to capture the essence of your day. It fits well between nap time (if you kiddos still nap), or captures a special time during your day, such as during breakfast or dinner.
It's enough time that everyone feels relaxed and no one feels rushed to accomplish anything!
Day in the life (8+hours)
for those wishing to document their everyday. Capturing your entire day, from the time you get up to the time you put the kids to bed, being there the whole day really allows me to tell your family's story right now. A normal, average, every day is beautiful... we go about our days and we miss moments that we don't even realize are happening.
These are the moments of parenthood, of fatherhood & motherhood of everyday life... life is hard, but it's also beautiful and raw. These moments pass so quickly, especially when we have little ones running around, why not document them and keep these memories forever!
I believe the importance in holding your photographs. Your images do you no good sitting on your computer or hard-drive. Your memories are meant to be displayed on the walls or in albums to share with others.
PLUS, how else are you suppose to embarrass your children if you can't pull out the family photo album and show the girlfriend/boyfriend! Trust me, your images are art, they should be displayed!
