Molly is a Class of 2022 senior at Anoka High School. She’s a complete doll and her Anoka senior photos were full of warm, glowy light!
When I say Molly is a doll, I totally mean it. She has the cutest giggle, adorable curly hair, and delicate features. She’s what I imagine the American Girl Doll Molly would be like if her story took place today instead of during the World War II era.
Molly is a sweet, shy, joyful young lady who loves theater and biology. In fact, she plans to go to UMD to study biology after graduation. As someone who is not overly gifted in the sciences, I’m utterly impressed. You go girl!!
I loved how the colors and scenery of Silverwood Park in New Brighton, MN amplified Molly’s natural beauty. Her outfits were perfectly picked and I placed her in settings that would support Molly’s style rather than overpower it. Consider the set of senior photos on the bridge, for example. The neutral colors of the bridge and the reflection of the trees in the water make the green of Molly’s dress and the hazel flecks of Molly’s eyes POP!
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 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!
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.
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!
