See you soon!

It's mini-session season! Mini-Sessions are 20 minutes long and your chance to take updated anniversary or family photos. And they're AMAZING for kids with short attention spans!

They're my favorite way to serve more people and give them the same great experience with a smaller investment.

I'm so excited to offer two brand new locations this year: Brushy Creek, which has awesome bluebonnets, and The Flower Vault, which is in Austin for a limited time! Get ready for tons of flowers.

My goal is to give EVERYONE I work with a wonderful experience, so why should mini-sessions be any different? When you inquire with me, I will personally respond to you. You'll plan your mini-session and communicate with ME, not an online booking system. It's important for me to get to know you (and vise versa) so we can make the most of our time together and give you photos that truly show your happiness and love for each other!

jennifer, spring 2018 mini-session

"We absolutely love all of our family photos that Lauren took during our mini-session. Lauren quickly responded and answered all of my questions. What I really loved was the website she uses to manage her business. It took care of everything from payments, email reminders, to previewing photos and downloading/ordering prints. The entire process so easy! We will definitely be booking Lauren again for our next photo session. If you are looking for a great photographer.....Contact Lauren!"

lora, fall 2019 mini-session

"We had a wonderful experience with Lauren capturing our family photos in a Fall mini session. In 20 minutes she was able to make us feel comfortable, and even got a few smiles out of our grumpy baby.  The photos turned out beautiful, and we will cherish them forever. We will definitely be scheduling a Spring mini session with her too. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

Jacqueline, Fall 2017 mini-session

"Thank you so much Lauren! Super responsive on email, very professional layout for payment schedules and very quick turnaround on final products. Absolutely fantastic to work with start to finish even when we had to change dates and times. Lauren was so accommodating and so patient with all our changes... mini sessions for babies are the best things ever created. It's not easy to photograph a cranky baby but she made the experience great." We will definitely work together again. Thank you!!"

RACHEL, Fall 2018 mini-session

"Lauren was incredible and so easy to work with! Our first pictures as a family turned out so beautifully. I am so so so happy. The entire experience was easy and when Lauren makes a promise to get your pictures by a certain day; she delivers."

Katie, Fall 2018 mini-session

"We had the best experience with our family mini session. Lauren was so good with the kids and gave us beautiful photos. We highly recommend her!"

kristen, Fall 2018 mini-session

"Lauren is super professional and great with our kids. The session only took 20 minutes (short enough to keep kids from going nuts), and we got a ton of great pictures. I would absolutely use her again!"

Only two mini-session events are held per year, and these are the ONLY days of the year that I photograph families. Spots fill up fast!
