Why Ivory Lamb photography and why Lauren?
Thank you SO much for your interest in Ivory Lamb Photography and I am thrilled you asked! As a mother of 4, I know that capturing your family is such an important part of life - not only for the here and now, but for generations to come. I understand that quality, artful photography is an investment and I am honored your are considering using my services. Photographs are not just objects to be cherished, but elements of your home which showcase who you all are and your unique family dynamic.
Altogether, I have had several years of photography experience, spending nearly the latest three of those specializing in Maternity and newborn through first year portraiture. Though that is my specialty, I also adore working with children, families and seniors. I have founded the Newborn Photography Safety Initiative, which focuses on educating other newborn photographers on the latest safety standards, handling/posing methods concerning newborn photography. Why do I mention that in your case? Because this mindset carries over to YOUR session as well - rest assured that any session with me will put your family's needs in the forefront. I pride myself on running a God and family-centered business as well.
my style, My mission
I am drawn to creating images that engages the viewer, causes the subject stand out and evokes emotion in an artful way. I would call my style simple, earthy and dramatic, but I am definitely not afraid of soft color, when desired. My mission is to capture time and make the most important moments in each client's life eternal. I aim to ensure that each piece of art given to my clients becomes a legacy of priceless memories.
