My love for photography started fifteen years ago while I was in school at Meredith College. I learned the in's and out's of photography and from there, Lauren Garrison Photography was formed. A little about me? Well, I'll start off by saying, I'm crazy, over the top in love with my kids! They are my heart walking around outside of my body! They bring me a kind of peace and joy that I never knew before them. I'm a single mom and a full time photographer. I feel in love with newborn photography by complete accident. Over time I have perfected posing these sweet little ones, soothing them to sleep and enjoying meeting and chatting with their parents.
I specialize in newborn photography but also love the capturing the first year of a child's life. I am what I proudly call a "posed newborn photographer". Although I do consider myself a lifestyle photographer I vary a bit when it comes to my newborns. There is something magical about achieving those poses of a newborn and capturing every little detail of those beautiful faces while they are proped up on their arms or hands.
I am always attending workshops and classes to increase my knowledge of photography and better my skills! My style is simple and pure. I have found that photographing babies, children and families requires a sort of "go with the flow" attitude. I do my best to capture you in your most natural state with real emotions and expressions. I enjoy using natural lighting as much as possible for your sessions so they are typically scheduled in the morning and early evenings. All newborn sessions are done in my home in my studio. Babies older than newborns can have sessions done in my home studio or on location
