Hello there!

Welcome welcome! I'm Lauren, the twenty- seven years young, small town Michigan girl with a passion for Chai lattes, Jesus, anything blue, autumn, and belly laughs. I grew up along the coast of Lake Michigan and I love our way of life out here! I've become a self- taught photographer over the past 4 years and I've enjoyed every moment with my camera in hand. It's been an adventure from the start! My husband Darren has cheered me on from the sidelines and I am blessed to have such a sweet and steadfast man in my life. We are college sweethearts who tied the knot in April 2018 and now we have our first babe on the way! It's been an oh so wonderful time with him in my life!

Since I can remember, I've been someone who "ooo's" and "ahh's" over memories captured. I love flipping through photo albums and prints because for a moment, time has stopped. For me, reminiscing on times gone past creates a sense of nostalgia. Photography came into my life when I was planning my own wedding and searching for a person to document our day. Even after we'd booked our lovely photographer, I kept diving into this craft and started connecting with other photographers to learn anything and everything I could. Being a part of life's little moments gives me such great joy! Watching a bride get ready for one of the happiest days of her life, seeing a mother snuggle her newborn, or laughing with a family during a session has made for some happy memories. Photos are something to cherish and I would be honored to hear your stories and capture your memories authentically.

If you think we'd be a good fit, let's chat and get to know one another!

xx Lauren
