wedding + lifestyle photography

natural, honest, soulful

Hi! l'm Lauren! I am a destination wedding and lifestyle photographer.
I serve the New Orleans area and travel worldwide. My passion for people
and heartfelt moments run deep, and I pour my heart and soul into documenting love stories. I offer full service wedding photography, in home lifestyle sessions, and the sweetest little films. Read more!

There is so much beauty in the seemingly ordinary, and I believe in documenting every season of life. I am a storyteller and strive to create a relaxed environment for you to feel comfortable enough to be your true self in front of the camera. To laugh and to dance. I catch the beautifully raw moments as they unfold. Not only do I capture a glimpse into your life, I have the privilege of telling your story. I would love to get to know you. Let's get coffee!

HOMESPUN WINTER

The winter solstice time is no longer celebrated as it once was, with the understanding that this is a period of descent and rest, of going within our homes, within ourselves and taking in all that we have been through, all that has passed in this full year which is coming to a close. Like nature and the animal kingdom around us, this time of hibernation is so necessary for our tired limbs and our burdened minds. Our modern culture teaches avoidance at a max at this time; alcohol, lights, shopping, overworking, over spending, comfort food and consumerism… and yet the natural tug to go inwards as nearly all creatures are doing is strong and the weather so bitter that people are left feeling that winter is hard, because for those of us without burning fires and big festive families, it can be lonely and isolating.
