life is a story 

how will you

Our philosophy is simple. We take beautiful photos to capture your children. The moments and looks that you'll want to cherish forever. The ones that you'll treasure in your home for years to come.

get to know us

Starting with your portrait consultation we take the time to know and appreciate who you and your family are. It enables us to create portraits that reflect what you love about your children. The result is a piece of art custom styled to fit within the decor of your home. Your playful, relaxed portrait experience coupled with our attention to detail from portrait creation to album design is presented to you in a beautifully packaged gift of portrait art to pass down through the generations.

We’ll begin by discussing clothing, location, and products with you by phone or at an in-person portrait consultation. This will give me a feel for your family’s personality and how best to capture what it is you love about your family.
Next comes our portrait session where we will spend as much time as needed to capture everyone, usually about an hour and a half in length. I will bring an assistant along to make sure there are plenty of smiles!  After your session is complete, we will meet in the studio a few weeks later to view a slide show and your narrowed down and edited portraits.  

Lauren, a mother of 3 & an Alamo Heights native, graduated the  University of Texas at austin with a studio art degree in 2005. She has since grown a thriving business with nearly 500 families across texas as her clientele.

We would love to get to know you and your children!  call us so we can talk more about what you would like to capture about them!

I was completely taken with the results of our portraits! She was able to capture my children’s individual sparkle and a precious moment in time that we will get to cherish forever. It was impressive that she was able to capture what she did in a brief, yet productive timeframe. Lauren also helped select the sizing and order custom frames to achieve the aesthetic we were looking for. The final result is absolutely stunning. Anyone that comes to our home falls in love with the portraits; there has yet to be one person who hasn’t stopped and commented about them in our entryway!  The pieces are a truly work of art and the perfect touch for our home. We are so happy!

“Every parent loves nothing more than a photo that captures the essence of their child.  Lauren does just that! Her work is truly art.  She was able to capture our son and our family in such a pure form that it melts my heart each and every time I see our portraits.  The most important thing to note is her work with children....that may not always be cooperative.  She was up for the challenge and made it look effortless. I cannot thank Lauren enough for such a wonderful experience and perfect portraits that I will treasure forever!” -Christin Gish

“Lauren has taken some amazing photographs that capture very precious moments and memories for us of our child. She has a very keen eye along with a great ability to get the best out of a sitting. Her ability to capture the joy and personality in children is one thing that I found exceptional in her work. Another attribute is that Lauren... makes it her business to find locations that make her work both unique and personal. We treasure the images she has created.”
