Cape Cod family photography

Summer is the perfect time to gather with your loved ones, soak up the sun, and create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. And what better way to preserve those cherished moments than through a family photoshoot? That’s exactly what Leigh and her family did earlier this July. Leigh, a talented photographer out of Austin, TX, reached out and said she and her family would love to meet up and do a Cape Cod family photography session with me while in town on vacation. And y’all know me, whenever I get a chance to come down to the Cape, I jump on it!

Cape Cod is the perfect destination for family photography sessions. Beyond its natural beauty, the Cape is renowned for its charming towns and captivating architecture. Picture-perfect cottages, historic homes, and quaint streets lined with blooming flowers create an enchanting atmosphere for your family portraits. When I asked Leigh if she had a particular vision for her family’s photography session, that’s precisely the scene she described: a Chatham Bars Inn vibe with hydrangeas and a cottage.

While we decided Chatham Bars Inn was a bit further than we wanted to go, I found the most adorable location for Leigh and her family. Shining Tides has that perfect Cape Cod aesthetic and was just minutes from where the family was staying.

It’s always a little intimidating when you’re asked to photograph another photographer. But Leigh and her family were so lovely! It wasn’t too long after we began that it felt like we were just old friends. After we took a few photos at Shining Tides, we headed out to a nearby beach for the tail end of our Cape Cod family photography session. Because…come on! You can’t not go to the beach when you’re down on the Cape, right?

Leigh, thanks for entrusting me with your family’s memories. It was a pleasure meeting you and I can’t wait to connect with you the next time I’m in Texas!!

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!
