PISMO BEACH'S FAVORITE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR A EASY GOING, MEMORABLE PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE.

HI! I'M LAUREN.

I am a laid back, Jesus loving, beach exploring, coffee consuming, charcuterie connoisseur, big dreaming mama of two. I live on the central coast (Pismo Beach CA) with my husband, 2 kids & fluffy dog and I whole heartedly adore this place because the people here are genuinely content with a casual easy going "SLO" life. Yes... the west coast is the best coast.

Photography has always been a piece of who I am, but after I lost my father to cancer I realized that time is so short and precious and that memories are better saved and relived through photography. 

The photos I take reflect what I find to be irreplaceable; moments with your family, and you with the people that you love. The overwhelming emotions that come with newborn babies, and watching your children grow are meant to be saved as well as passed down to your children. 

I am so grateful you are here and would love the honor of photographing your family.

what are sessions like?

"I believe in capturing memories through  photographs, so that they may be re-lived in moments of gratitude and remembered in the thick of life’s trials"

laid back experience

I know you're here for the photographs, but my intention is for your experience and time together to be genuinely fun and easy going. Let me take the stress away of getting beautiful family images. I will guide and do some minimal posing but ultimately I encourage you take some intentional time to just enjoy your family in front of my camera. 

beautiful central coast

I prefer to photograph outdoors and take advantage of the gorgeous locations the Central Coast has to offer. From Pismo Beach to San Luis Obispo, you can find beaches, caves, trails & hills so we can photograph your family in a location that is true to your personality. 

all inclusive sessions

I love simplicity and provide sessions that are one price but include many elements.

 

Your session investment includes our on-site photography experience, as well as high resolution digital images presented in an online gallery for you to download and keep and share with your family and friends. Your images are edited to be timeless and presented in color as well as black and white. Your online gallery also offers optional designer products for purchase to make it easy to make your images come to life. 

 

With each session, I do not want to limit you (or myself for that matter) to choosing a specific number of images to keep so I give you everything I got, resulting in a collection that tells a story of your family and feels authentic to who you are.

"I would definitely recommend Lauren! She is quite the professional while being very down to earth. She had a positive energy that was infectious. She made me and my husband feel comfortable and seemed excited in the process. We for sure want to work with her again in the future."
