Rachel and Austin's Early Spring Engagement Session

When one of your best friends sister contacts you for an engagement session, you JUMP on it. Especially when that sister is so incredibly sweet and gorgeous as Rachel is.

I am really happy with how these turned out and I hope you all do as well!

I had so much capturing your love for Austin, and his for you Rachel. I really hope you enjoy these photos for a lifetime. Thank you for trusting me!

January 2019 - Personal Blog - Virginia Family Photographer - North Carolina Family Photographer

While editing I came across nearly 1000 images that I have been holding back from sharing with the world. I always get really nervous when sharing my work and putting myself out there. I think “damn are these too ‘creative’, is anyone going to like these?” I tend to play it “safe” with paid sessions, so my personal work is always super dramatic, I have more creative freedom and therefore I feel more fulfilled with personal work. I’ve decided to put this work out there and share it with you all! So my goal this year is to post a monthly update with all my work! It will feature my cute little kids, some weird selfies probably, and my fiance I guess ;) I really hope you all enjoy these! We celebrated my son turning 7 and my daughter turning 5 this month, so you’ll see plenty of donuts featured in this months photos lol (birthday tradition). Please do me a favor and let me know what you think and which image is your favorite!! <3

Love you all,

Lauren

Family Session at Big Meadows - Virginia

Have you ever created something and take a step back and say "holy crap this is good"? haha well, I did with this session. I had to tell myself over and over again that it's okay to like your own work and it's okay to be proud of something you have created. 

This session was so perfect. The sky presented us with its most beautiful colors and dramatic clouds. Also these kids have the most GORGEOUS red hair and photographing them was such an honor. I hope you all enjoy these images, I'm going to keep the dialog short and let these images speak for themselves. <3 

Thanks for visiting :)
