My name is Lauren. I am a storyteller and moment seeker from West Virginia where I live with my husband of nearly 12 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. This 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 clients true personality. I photograph everything; the mundane, the messy, the exhaustion. This is my why and this is my story.


perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. it’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. joy comes in sips, not gulps
