I love what I do and it shows.
I enjoy getting you what you want because photos are what I’m passionate about.
Most of my business comes from word-of-mouth recommendations, so I am reliable, prompt, and courteous right from the first phone call or email. I listen carefully to what you’re trying to capture so I can meet your needs and objectives. I’ve worked with individuals, companies, and galleries and have had a positive experience with every one of my clients.
I have the equipment and skills needed to see a project through to completion–including photo retouching and processing–and I won’t stop until you’re satisfied.
Everyone has a digital camera, more people every day own a DSLR, and anyone with a computer can download Photoshop and accidentally make a couple of great photos. So why hire a professional instead of doing it yourself?
What sets me apart is my attention to detail and ability to work in different conditions. I’m able to see shots that others overlook and capture details that make a picture unique and meaningful. Most importantly, I do this consistently so you have lots of beautiful photos to choose from. I notice the little things and know how to frame them in a way that makes my work art, not just photography.
Flexibility and Fun
Being my own boss means that I can travel when needed, work in your office or my studio, match my schedule to yours, and work affordably.
I love doing any kind of photography and my work makes me incredibly happy. One of my goals is to help you enjoy your shoot, as well, whether I’m taking pictures of a family vacation or event, shooting interiors or corporate portraits for your website, or going with you on a photojournalism assignment. Everyone is more relaxed and natural when they’re enjoying themselves, which always helps the process!

Opinions from previous clients.
The portrait shoot was so much fun! It was odd being in front of the camera at first, but once we started playing around with poses and even got a little goofy I felt way more comfortable and just let myself be me. Thanks for letting my silly side come through a bit–they wouldn’t have been pictures of “me” without showing that side of my personality!

Lauren’s photography has been a customer favorite at Ella’s. Her unique view on often-overlooked, ordinary items is what makes her photography so special.

[Lauren] was professional, flexible, helpful, and produced a variety of images for us to choose from. She listened to our needs and worked hard to give us exactly what we were looking for. Our company catalogue is going to look brilliant!

There were so many photos that I wanted, but in the end I chose “Behind the Taj Mahal” because I would look back at it after looking at all the other pictures. I found myself asking “Who was this woman? How does she feel about living in poverty right outside one of the world’s most beautiful buildings?” I’ve never been to India and never even had a lifelong dream to go, but now I’m dying to go there and meet the people that are portrayed so truthfully in these photos. My ‘Places to See’ list grows longer every time you post new photos!
