Christmas in July

Yes, I know, it’s almost impossible to think of Christmas in this miserable heat. And while it may not be time to get our Christmas trees up (thank goodness!), it is time to start planning for Christmas cards! I will have lots of cards to choose from this year (this is obviously just a tiny sneak peek). All are fully customizable with the text of your choice and your favorite images from our session. In most cases, card colors can be changed to compliment images.

Session availability is limited this fall. I can’t believe it, but I only have a few openings left — 2 in September, 3 in October and 2 in November! You can go here to reserve your family’s spot. I look forward to creating a memorable session (and card!) for your family this year!


And if you want something really unique…we’ve got you covered there too!

Mixin’ it up!

Things on the blog are going to be changing slightly, for the better! You might have noticed over the past couple of months that I haven’t been posting as many pictures as part of my clients’ “sneak peeks.” I’ve been doing this for a couple of different reasons. First, I want to get each family’s sneak peek up on the blog as quickly as possible, within the first day or two after the session. When we have our family photos taken, I know how anxious I am so see something! And secondly, I like to sit down and edit sessions as a whole, which is usually not possible that quickly after a session. As your photographer, I aim to tell your story — to capture your connections and what it means to be where you are as a family right now. I think editing sessions all at once gives them a more coherent, seamless feel and allows me to tell your story better. But I’ve realized that by doing this, I haven’t been showing that much of my work, and those of you who might be on here to try to get to know me might like to see more. A few pictures here and there certainly doesn’t give you a very good sense of my style and what you will be getting if you book a session with me. So … I’ve decided to come back and post more photos from each of my sessions after all the editing and ordering is done, just for fun and just for those of you who’d like to see a little more! I probably won’t be posting every photo in a gallery (don’t want to overwhelm you!), but I am going to try to give you a more complete look at what a session with me entails. I hope you’ll enjoy these deeper looks into who I am as a photographer.

And you also might have noticed that I’ve been posting more of my own family’s pictures lately. Expect to see more of that too! I unfortunately fell into the trap of spending so much of my time and creative energy capturing and preserving other families’ memories, that I was neglecting my own. Wow, that’s not OK! After all, my little treasures are the main reason why I starting learning more about photography to begin with. I wanted to capture our connections and family memories in a beautiful way. So don’t be surprised if you see a little more of us too! 🙂

So let’s rewind back to my very first session of 2011, you might remember these two beautiful sisters who shared a very special bond.

This was a special session for me. I know I’ve said it before, but photographing sisters has extra special meaning for me. I am from a family of two girls, and my own sister and I were very close growing up. I still consider her one of my dearest friends, but we were absolutely inseparable as little girls. We were as different as different could be but loved each other dearly and were constant companions. We pushed each other to do things we might otherwise have avoided. She had me climbing trees and trying to keep up with the boys, and I had her playing school and treating our dolls to imaginary tea parties. We were very fortunate to have each other. These two sisters remind me a lot of the way we were. They have very unique and distinct personalities but are very, very close friends. A friendship like this is unique. It is special, and it is to be treasured.

new albums!

I am so excited to unveil the new album option I am adding to the 2011 Lauren Reynolds Photography product lineup. I picked up the one I designed for some of our family pictures just yesterday, and I have been itching to show it to you. I am so in love with it. The quality of the construction and thickness of the pages is unsurpassed, and the cover is heaven to touch. There are many cover materials to choose from — you don’t have to go with one as bold as the “red viper” that I chose. And that cameo on the front — it’s printed on metal, how cool is that?!

They are so sturdy that I didn’t mind a bit when my 4-year-old and 2-year-old wanted to sit down together to flip the pages!
