My Story

Hello! I’m so glad you’re here!

My name is Lauren. I am a storyteller and moment seeker from West Virginia where I live with my husband of nearly 7 years and our two children.

I’ve lived my entire life with the urge to create and document. History, especially the stories of my own family, fascinates me. I have photos and heirlooms of my grandparents all over our house; the home that was once theirs. I have always loved learning about my family’s heritage and reliving memories through old photographs.

The realization that nothing stays the same drives my need to photograph my family, and knowing that photographs serve a priceless purpose in other families as well helps me create photos for them that will serve as heirlooms for their family’s future generations just like the photos from my family’s past and the ones I’m taking during this season of our lives.

I love documenting real moments that show my family’s, and my clients, true personality. I photograph mundane, messy, exhausting moments because I know the harsh reality is that I’ll never get those moments back. One day, I know I’ll long for the days of no sleep and loads of laundry and dishes that never seemed to slow down. Storytelling and documenting are my way of holding on to those memories, and I hope that my family and my clients can look back at the photos I’ve taken for years to come with a smile on their face and stories to tell.
