If I could tell the story in words. I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.

My Peeps!

I am married to my best friend, Ian, we've know each other for 15 years, married for 6!  Penelope or "P," as we like to call her our little sour patch kid... you know, "at first she's sour, then she's sweet!"  She is strong-willed, curious and could talk your ear off!  We just had our second little girl, Piper (our two P's in a pod)... the photos above our actually our first family photos (8 weeks pregnant). 

These three ground me and I couldn't ask for a better support system!  Growing up in Maine, I spent most of my days outdoors, playing, getting dirty, running down to the ball friend, finding soda cans in exchange for 5 cent gum and of course, spending time by the water.  As long as I can remember, photography has been in my life and documenting always in my blood.  I love documenting the everyday!

Hi ~ I'm Lauren!

I’m a wife, a mama to two tiny humans... plus 3 fur babies!  On a typically day you can find me drinking way to much espresso, lathering on essential oils (find out more here!), probably barefoot, & wrapped up in a blanket or two!  If it’s not raining or snowing, we are playing on the beach, eating ice cream, but realistically vegging on the couch watching movies!

Did you know...

I'm a TWIN!  (identical and yes I'm older... by 11 minutes)

I was a Division I track & field athlete at the University of New Hampshire.  I did the pole vault!

I have a tattoo

I hate spiders... and bugs...

I have a latte problem!

I have a HUGE sweet tooth.

I swear too much for my mom's liking!!!

I could eat Mexican food for breakfast, lunch & dinner!

I have a habit of twirling my hair... My daughter does too!

I was born & raised in Maine, & currently live in historic York, Maine.
