Sydney and I go WAAAAAAAAAY back. Back to the days of being in a dance studio when she was going into Jr. High. Already a beauty, with crazy dance talent to boot, I knew this gal was on the path to great things. So when it was time to take her Minneapolis senior photos, I was A) excited, B) felt old (“Syd’s a senior already!?!”), and C) did I say excited?

Even though she’s not dancing these days, I still fully believe that whatever Sydney wants to do, and sets her heart and mind to do, she’ll do it with excellence!

As the youngest of two (I took her sister Madison’s senior photos 3 years ago), Sydney is hungry to pave a new path and go into the world. She knows her mind, she knows what she’s about, and she’s not gonna stop when things get tough. All great traits for a young lady to possess, if you ask me. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – I’m pretty sure she gets all of her independence and strength from her mom, whom I love and with whom I’m able to talk all things Game of Thrones.

Even though the last few years have been tough – COVID-19 and interrupted school sessions were no joke these last two years – Sydney has persevered and is exited for her last year of high school. Sydney is a Class of 2022 senior at Forest Lake High School.

How do we even start to say thank you for all the work and effort you put into our wedding day?

- Josie and Scott

Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.

Lauren made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable!

- Amy and Luke

We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!

Working with Lauren was easy breezy and FUN! She gave us our most treasured photos ever!


There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!

Lauren's enthusiasm and passion make the photo-taking process so fun – she made me feel like a star!

- Alisa AND Adam

Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!

Lauren was pivotal in making our wedding day perfect!

- Emma AND Erik

My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a  calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.

Not only is Lauren an amazing human being, but she is an awesome photographer!

- Haley AND Erick

I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
