Send me your kiddos

You don't have to say it. I know what you're thinking. "But Lauren, you don't photograph kids!" I'm going to confess something to you: I've been a photographer for 5 years, and I have agreed to photograph children twice. Twice. In 5 years. I used to tell myself this was because I only loved weddings, and this is mostly true. But the real reason I've passed on photographing children is because of fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of trying and realizing I'm no good at it. But this year I've decided that I want to live fearlessly. I want to stretch myself creatively. I want to take on projects that scare me so that I can grow. So, with that in mind, I want you to send me your kiddos!

I need a few parents to volunteer their children to go in front of my camera. I'm looking for high energy, fun loving, adorable children between the ages of 3-8. Parents will receive a complimentary print credit in exchange for their time. If you are interested, please send your name, your kiddo's name, age and a recent photo to

And because every post is better with a photo or two, here is a sneak peek from Connie & Brett's engagement session!
