Our sessions are full of play and having fun in a stress-free setting, which results in natural and timeless images + expressions.

Our client wardrobe specializes in providing a boutique wardrobe for women and young children. We have a growing collection of shirts for Dad and select pieces for children 5T+. Before your session takes place, we’ll invite you to our studio where we will help do all the style planning for you!

You can browse our wardrobe collection like it’s your own closet until we decide the best combinations for each member of your family. If we don’t have a certain item you need, we’ll help you find it! We also provide you with tons of style inspiration in our exclusive planning guide you’ll receive upon booking.

What should my family wear for our session?

Family sessions in our natural light studio can be booked all year long! Outdoor sessions are best between April-October. We absolutely love spring in Ohio because of all the gorgeous blooms everywhere but April and May sessions fill quickly so be sure to reserve your session date as early as possible if you love blossoming trees as much as we do!

When is the best time of year to book a family session?

Studio sessions can be cozy, snuggly lifestyle images featuring our white bed setup or timeless classic portraits featuring our white wall and elegant sofa. Outdoor sessions often take place at our favorite nature park and typically include organic elements such as flowers, wispy grass, ponds, and lots of space for kids to run and play. We’ll help you decide what works best for your family upon booking!

How do I decide between a studio or outdoor session for my family?

The Luxury Membership is a great option for families that have multiple session needs within one year such as documenting sibling birthdays individually, a studio family session and an outdoor family session all within 15 months.

There are many creative ways to combine your sessions and it’s a great way to receive additional perks and savings along the way!

Is booking the Luxury Membership a good option for me?

Lauri and Carrie made me feel comfortable and beautiful when I certainly did not feel that way! (7 months pregnant + 2.5 postpartum.) They recommended hair + makeup and had a full wardrobe for me to choose from. I didn't have to worry about anything! The photos exceeded all expectations and I'll treasure them forever."

We met them while I was pregnant with our daughter and have since done maternity, newborn, and 6 month milestone sessions with them so far. I have never felt so beautiful as I have when I'm styled in their studio wardrobe and in front of their cameras. I can't even express how grateful I am to them for capturing the most precious moments of our lives for us to look back on forever."

"There aren't enough words to describe how much we love Lauri and Carrie and their amazing work! 

- MEGAN K. | Maternity, Newborn, + family client

"We LOVE Lauri and Carrie! We have gone to them for maternity, one/two/three year milestones, and all Santa/Holiday sessions for the past few years. We love how our house is filled with their beautiful images. I love the ease of having an outfit inspiration board emailed to me and/or using the wardrobe for mother and baby - it makes our lives so much easier! Lauri is always available to check over outfits and give her opinion since she knows the aesthetics best.

They are more than just photographers, they are an experience and worth every penny. 10/10 would recommend!

With our oldest, it was the most relaxing and calm experience doing her photos! With our youngest, our toddler was having meltdowns left and right and what would have been a really stressful time ended up being so much better than we expected. Lauri and Carrie were so engaging and fun with her and worked some kind of magic to get us the most precious photos. One of my favorite parts is that you are able to use their studio wardrobe to style and have the ability to pick out accessories and colors that speak to you so each photo session from them is so unique with the same elegant look."

"Lauri and Carrie have done both of my daughters newborn photos and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! These are photos we will treasure forever and the best investment.
