meant to be

So last year, this sweet family and I planned to have our session in the Arts District downtown, and it was just not meant to be. You might remember how we had to make a last minute detour due to some unscheduled events in our planned meeting spot. So this year, we were determined to make our original plan work, and after a reschedule (for yet another unplanned event!), we finally were able to make it happen. Our time together is always wonderful, but I’m so glad that we finally got our Arts District session. Some things are just simply worth the wait.

Miss. L is almost *exactly* one year older than my little girl, and it is such a delight to be with her and see what my sweet pea will be doing this time next year. And as you can see, Miss. L is not only a beautiful child (a given with such attractive parents!), but she has the most vibrant, fun personality. I’m so glad we let her loose to splash and roll in the water at the end of our session. I just love her jest for life!

  1. Ashlee Lauren Photography says: What a fun time! Great session. :D on 01.9.14 @ 8:50 pm

  2. Amy Liscomb says: Hi Lauren. I came across these photos of the little girl in the water on Pinterest tonight. I was in love immediately. I love your style and was very excited to find out the shots were in Dallas. I live in the mid-cities and am always on the look out for new spots. I live closer to Fort Worth and generally head in that direction but you have inspired me to venture east more often. You are very talented. on 02.24.14 @ 8:38 pm

What a difference a few months makes!!

I had the pleasure of re-visiting one of my precious newborn clients recently and was floored when I was met by a crawling little man. You are not supposed to be crawling yet, sweet boy! Look out, mom and dad, this one is going to be a mover and shaker for sure!

And to highlight how behind I am on my blogging, I haven’t posted his sweet newborn session yet or his beautiful mammas maternity photos. I just love looking back at all these and seeing the loving anticipation as they looked forward to becoming a family of three and the love, joy and awe that each parent feels during those first days after their baby’s debut. O’s, your love for each other and your sweet baby boy is palatable and certainly becomes you. Thank you for trusting me to capture these special milestones for you — what an honor.

And doesn’t this mamma have the greatest sense of color and style?!? If I ever redecorate, I want her help! 🙂

Little Red & Her Wolf

My children *love* dressing up. Any day, all day, for any reason, so Halloween is naturally a fun-filled event at our house each year, and this year was certainly no exception! But it was a bitter-sweet year for mamma for sure, because this will most likely mark the last year that I’m able to have a big say in their costumes. Well, at least, *his* costumes. He’s six, you see, and six year olds would much rather be warewolfs than “big bad wolfs” (yes, that’s what he told his friends at school), so I’m pretty sure that this mamma’s Halloween, outfit coordinating, picture taking days might officially be over. Sniff, sniff. ;(

  1. Grandmom says: They are the cutest fairy tale characters ever! Unfortunately "little boys" grow up to be "big boys" with very definite ideas about what they want to be, however, the "big boys" are also lots of fun, just different ways. on 11.2.12 @ 2:14 pm

Holiday Mini-Sessions!

The wait is finally over — Holiday Mini-Sessions* are just around the corner! They will be held the evening of Saturday, October 27th at a beautiful park in Highland Park. Each session will be 30 minutes long and will be geared towards getting those perfect holiday card pictures. And this year, they are all-inclusive! Yep, that’s right, no decisions to make after your session — I will simply mail you all 10-12 fully edited images from your session and a 5×7 print of each. We can then work together to design the perfect custom card just for you, or you are free to order your own from my new online store. As my Madeleiene loves to say, easy peasy! If you’d like more information, then drop me a line, and if you’re ready to snag one of the 4 slots (that’s right, only 4), then click here to make your reservation!

And no post would be complete without some eye candy! Here are just a few of my faves from my 2011 minis. Looking forward to capturing more beauty for you this year! 🙂

*Please note that mini-sessions are only open to immediate family members and are for families of four and smaller. Mini-sessions work best for children who are three and older. No dates or times are secured until the Session Fee is paid. The Session Fee includes Lauren’s time and talent, 10-12 fully edited images from the session and a 5×7 print of each. All additional products will be invoiced separately after your session.

their Nai Nai

Grandmothers are special. They just are. Their kisses, hugs and certainly their treats are extra special. And everyone knows there is a soft spot in every grandmother’s heart for her grandchildren. Nothing delights either of mine more than some time to be spoiled by either of their grandmas. So when the C Family wanted to include their boys’ Nai Nai in their session, well, I just knew it would be special. She clearly adores those boys, and what a wonderful thing to document for them. I know they will look back at these photos in years to come and be reminded of just how much she loves them, and that certainly is a special thing.

the friendship years

I leave most sessions feeling very nostalgic about how fast my kiddos are growing up. I’m sure that’s no surprise, as that seems to be a constant theme here on this little blog of mine. But not this session! I loved watching the interaction between this beautiful mamma and her three not-so-little ones. The laughter, the fun, and all the things they enjoy doing together. In fact, they were packing up from our time together to go hit a 5K run that night as a family (how fun is that!?). No, I didn’t leave feeling nostalgic, but excited about all that lays ahead. Excited for the years to come where our children will blossom into their own, develop interests that are special to them and hopefully become our friends too. J, you are a wonderful mom, and have three fantastic kids. Your love and connections shine through so beautifully — thank you for trusting me to capture them for you!

she sparkles

Have you ever met a child that just sparkles? You know the kind, the ones that you just make your heart smile and draw you in with their adorable, bigger-than-life personalities? There has always been something special about Baby R, and I’ve felt so honored to watch her grow up in front of my lens. As a baby, she was so sweet and cuddly with the brightest blue eyes. And if I had to describe her in one word as a toddler, it would be *sparkly.* I was so captivated by that twinkle in her eye and extra bounce in her step. We had so much fun at our session together, and she had us all in stitches the entire time. I literally could not stop giggling over all her dancing. Whether we were downtown or at home, with music or not, she danced. What a joy she is — R’s I know you know this, but you have an extra special one!
