Sophia is a Class of 2022 senior at St Louis Park Senior High School. Her St Anthony Main senior pictures were taken on a lovely, warm but not hot summer day and y’all, I’m in love with her photos!
First off, I went to St Louis Park Senior High School so I was jazzed to be able to take a fellow Orioles’ senior photos. Secondly, Sophia is my neighbor and I was both excited and anxious. Excited because I know her family and anxious because I really wanted to do a good job. I mean, no one wants there to be tension with their neighbors, so it was essential that I knocked Sophia’s session out of the park so that she and her mom love her senior photos.
We met at St Anthony Main and hit up some of my favorite spots in the area. I love how the backgrounds don’t distract from Sophia but rather support her and makes her the clear subject of the image. Sometimes when you take photographs in the city, the backgrounds overwhelms the subject. Not in this case. Because I’m constantly studying and growing my artistry, I know how to place and pose my seniors excellently. When seniors get in front of my camera they know that nothing in their photos will compete with them. One of many reasons why it pays to hire a professional. Ok…stepping off my soap box lol.
Sophia’s session was so fun and I’m so happy how her photos turned out. She’s a smart, ambitious, thoughtful young lady whom I’m utterly proud of!
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!
