“Wow I just looked through all of them. I’m speechless. This is the best present I ever gave myself.

Lauren, Sept. ’21 in Boxford, Massachusetts

“Jane trusted you big time, which she doesn’t do with just anyone.”

Molly, Oct. ’21 in Cincinnati, Ohio

“I’m laughing and tearing up looking at these. If this doesn’t capture me alone, I don’t know what does. You are AMAZING”

Lauren, Sept. ’21 in Boxford, Massachusetts

I love spending time with people. Whether we are hanging out in your backyard in a homemade hammock or experiencing the thrill of a carnival ride, your time and your loved ones matter. I notice the details – a small smile, feet dangling in unison. I capture the energetic moments – an impressive trampoline jump, a belly laugh. I recognize the bigger significance – family traditions that carry through generations, the loving and inviting home you’ve created.

I want to collaborate with you on how we can best capture your family and loved ones. What brings you joy? What do you love doing together? What brings you closer? What carries meaning?

The images I capture tell stories. What will yours say?

“We had an awesome experience. All of our prior family photo experiences have been stressful and forced and this time it was so relaxed and the kids actually had fun! It was great to see natural and not just staged photos. We cannot recommend this experience enough!”

Marsha, Nov. ’21 in Los Angeles, California

About Me

Hi, I’m Lauren. I love witnessing and capturing real moments. I’ve spent the last ten years photographing people in their everyday lives for newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post. Now I want to add your family to the mix.

I got into photography because of a fascination with and love for people, cultures, traditions, and relationships. I love using photography as a form of expression and communication, a way to connect with deeper meaning, and a way to learn about and share different ways of life. I bring this anthropological and documentary approach into my work with families because we all have a story to tell.

Each phase of life comes with unique memories, routines, joys, and transitions. When we reflect on this time years from now, the photographs we hold can immediately transport us back to an emotion or memory. When you look back on this phase of your life, what will you want to remember?

Whether you are celebrating, moving through your everyday routine, or experiencing a life change, I want to capture the moments (with you in them!) that make it memorable.
