Get to Know the Girl Behind the Camera!

Lauri Exley

Photography has always played a huge role in my life. My grandfather always had a camera in his hand and was a photographer in World War II. I used to love looking through his pictures from that time. He froze time and captured moments that his grandchildren could appreciate many years later. What a magical feeling to see pictures of my grandmother when she was young and carefree, and images of my father when he was a child. My father followed suit and had a camera or video camera in his hands throughout my childhood.

Once I had my own children, I began to truly understand the value and importance of savoring every moment. I took pictures of them whenever I could and attempted to capture as many milestones and memories as possible.

As a photographer, my goal is to recreate that magic for you. To freeze time, so when you look back at the images, they will trigger a memory and a smile.I love being silly and doing whatever is needed to get that natural smile from your kids. As your partner during our session, I want to make sure you’re comfortable. Think of this as a playdate, or lunch with friends! 

I can’t wait to embark on this adventure with you.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
