St. Augustine Family photographer

Something nobody prepares you for about motherhood is watching your children grow. It's the feeling of never wanting them to grow up, but also being so excited watching them meet every new milestone. It's the heartache of knowing they'll never be that small again, but also loving the tiny human they are becoming. It's bittersweet and beautiful all at the same time. As a mother myself, and a St. Augustine photographer for over 10 years, I have witnessed how quickly childhood passes by. Together we can effortlessly craft timeless heirlooms for your family. Learn more about your St. Augustine family and motherhood photographer.

Family Experience

ST. Augustine Photography

Playful and stress-free family photography in St. Augustine, Central Florida and surrounding beaches.

My hope is that through my work you can feel seen and loved. So quickly the fleeting days with little ones pass us by. As a mother myself, I understand the stress and chaos that can cloud the photo experience. As a St. Augustine family and maternity photographer for over a decade, I've perfected an approach that makes the journey joyful, from the first inquiry, until you hold your album in your hands.

My images are a visual love letter to yourself, taking you back to cherished seasons of life for years to come. This photographic legacy grows more and more invaluable with each passing year. The M. Lauren experience is really taking all the love that fuels you through the challenging seasons of motherhood and preserving it with timeless keepsakes.
