My husband and I have settled down on the Space Coast for now and started our little family. We have two fiercely independent girls, a 90 lb. chocolate husky + a 13 lb. rescue. Huge dog lovers over here, so if you bring your dogs to your session, or they happen to make an appearance on your wedding day, I can assure you my heart couldn't be happier. When I'm not editing or emailing you back, you can find me making memories with my family anywhere outside, cuddling my puppies while binge watching Yellowstone or walking the aisles of Target with a hot coffee in hand. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to document life as it happens and tell your beautiful and unique story. As you quickly realize, time doesn't wait for you. 

a little more about me

I am so glad you found my little space on the internet and I cannot wait to create art with you. What began as a hobby to pass time when my husband was deployed quickly turned into a passion. Photography is my art and chasing that golden hour light never gets old. I am so glad you're here and I hope I have the opportunity to show you how beautiful your family is through my lens. I am dedicated to capturing beautiful moments of your family that you can keep as memories forever. I started my business nine years ago in a small town in Eastern North Carolina and seven years ago that lead me to Florida's Space Coast. 

A visual storyteller, documenting your family legacy, fueled by coffe and sunshine.

I'm Mary Lauren

A snapshot into my life

Get to know me!

Capturing raw, real emotions and being able to create memories by documenting what love looks like through my lens is what made photography my passion.

In very southern fashion my girls have double first names. Ella Grace + Sophia Mae.

Girl Mama

We have two dogs, and they are like our babies!

We love our pooches


I love to travel to new places and explore the world.



I’m a diehard Braves fan and love UGA as well because, let’s be honest, SEC.

Go Braves!


Desperately miss my roots back in Georgia and long for a house on some land with all the horses and cows. 

Georgia Girl!


Don’t let me fool ya though I also LOVE living near the beach. 

All the beaches!
