My name is Lauren, not Lily Sophia (but that's an honest mistake if you thought that!). I'm so glad you've found me and are interested in learning more about sessions! I truly consider it such an honor to be invited to document some of the most precious moments of your life.
If you want to see what the Lily Sophia Photography studio experience is like, make sure to watch this short 1.5 minute film if you haven't already! Follow me over on Instagram to see more work and get to know more about me.
I'm different than other photographers, because I don't photograph with a "Stand there, look here, now smile big!" approach. My sessions are FUN and relaxed. If you hate being in front of the camera, I understand - and I promise that you'll enjoy your time with me. If you're worried about your husband or partner being grumpy, I'm happy to report that I've lost count of the high fives from those guys when sessions with me are concluded.
I LOVE photographing my clients beginning with maternity sessions through newborn to family when their children are older. Cake smashes are some of my favorite sessions when we celebrate a whole year!
My style is simple and authentic. You won't ever hear me yelling "Say cheese!" You won't be asked to place your hands in the shape of a heart over your belly during your maternity session.
You also won't see me sticking a newborn baby in a basket with a crown or giant flower atop their head. For family sessions, nobody sits on a bench with their hands stiffly folded in their lap...instead we laugh, we play, we snuggle, and we have tickle fights. We create memories of real moments, authentic emotion, and the beautiful connection that you have with each other.
I want you to be who you are, not a Pinterest version of yourself.
Real and honest moments of emotional connection that depict who my clients are as individuals, couples, and families are what I am looking for during sessions. Worried that won't happen because you'll be too nervous? No need to stress! I work with clients to help them naturally make those connections if they're feeling a little unsure of what they should do.
Let's get to planning your perfect session! I cannot wait get to know you and your growing family.
