Meet Lauren

Those in-between moments, the ones that only last for a second and are easily overlooked in the everyday shuffle. Those are my favorites. I want your photos to be a true representation of your family, the real laughs, genuine love, and pure, everyday moments  

I hope to work with you and create timeless and heart felt images for your family to cherish always!



"Of all the things my hands have held,
the best by far is you."

My favorite moments to capture are usually ones when you're not looking at the camera. They are belly laughs from monster tickles. They are hunting for the perfect stick. They are cuddling on the couch together on a lazy weekend morning. They are the small, sacred, in-between moments that you'll always want to remember.

FAVORITE MOMENTS:

The first time I held my babies, I knew these moments were going to be gone before I could blink. The pictures I have of my own littles are a precious gift that let me look back and remember - I remember their chunky baby thighs and finger dimples, right alongside their toddler waddle-runs and hunting for sticks.
And that's exactly what I want to give your family. I want you to be able to hit pause and remember it all. Because looking back on your family and how you've all changed, grown, and loved each season is a gift you'll always cherish.

There is not one stage of motherhood where I haven't looked for the "pause" button.

What I love about Lauren is her desire to capture my family as-is and unposed. She allows kids to do what they do best: play and explore. And it’s like she is simply along for the ride, capturing their raw beauty and adventurous spirits. I can honestly say that I have Gordon Place pictures all over my house. Mostly, I just love Lauren. While the photographs are priceless to me, the fact that I can look at each picture and laugh because we just had so much fun as a family during the shoots, is what truly counts. I get to spend a lifetime staring at pictures of my babies and remembering the day with a smile instead of recalling how stressed I was. 

“Lauren has this artistic ability to capture you and your family in these small, sacred, intimate moments where the true love is."

Lauren is amazing! She’s so sweet, always prepared, and my photos are incredible. Lauren is wonderful with kids of all ages and gives direction really well. I’ve used Gordon Place Photography three times and each time I’m in love with the photos and the experience.

“I'm in love with the photos and the experience.”
