Lauren Skousen Photography bio picture


My name is Lauren Skousen. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet! I'd love for you to look around my site and see quick peeks of my most recent work! 

I'm a family girl, a wife, a mama to two munchkins (and one more on the way soon); I'm a Diet Coke drinker, a Target regular, a list maker, a clean freak. And I'm a portrait photographer.

I love the opportunity to capture life's moments. Whether it's capturing those irresistible rolls of your baby, or your family interacting with one another, or the love between you and your husband before your new bundle of joy arrives, or freezing your toddlers contagious laugh, or capturing who you are before new adventures unfold after high school graduation.

My style of photography is clean, simple and timeless. I love capturing the traditional images along with candid images that help to tell your unique story. I love when clients trust me and can be themselves in front of me! It's when your genuine selves shine through that I'm truly able to tell your story with my camera!

I specialize in on location children, family, maternity, senior and lifestyle portraits. I photograph a select number of wedding each year.

If you have any questions regarding my photography services, please email me (see the "Contact" tab above). I look forward to the opportunity of telling your unique story!

Disneyland Engagement Session: Shannon & Andrew

I was getting ready for Shannon and Andrew’s wedding tomorrow and realized that I never blogged their photos from their engagement session. Shannon and Andrew are seriously the sweetest couple! They are known to frequent Disneyland and their wedding is even going to have bits of a hidden Mickey theme, so we thought it was only fitting to shoot their engagement session at Disneyland. We started off at Disney’s California Adventure. I love shooting at the Disneyland Resort, but I especially love all the colors and backdrops that CA Adventure has to offer. I’m excited for their wedding! Sorry for the overload of images…I had way too many favorites!

Pasadena, CA Family Photographer : The Ahuja Family

Is this not the cutest family?! I am so happy with how this session turned out, and you would never know that things didn’t start as planned. They were stuck in major traffic from an accident, and we had barely 45 minutes for a full session. But, it was plenty of time because this little guy was perfect and was full of smiles and we got all the shots that we wanted/needed. I was seriously so in love with the light! Here’s a look at my favorites…

Glendora, CA Child Photographer : Cory’s Birthday Mini

I can’t believe that this adorable boy is already 5 years old! The first time I photographed the Willes family, Cory was 6mo old. Time sure does seem to fly! It was so fun to have more one-on-one time with him. During his family’s sessions, he’s always so quiet and shy, but during this session he was so talkative! Here’s some of my favorites from this stud’s birthday mini!

Claremont, CA Child Photographer : The twins turn 3!

The last time I photographed these adorable twins, they were a year old! It’s so fun to be able to catch up with my clients and to see how much my “little clients” have grown! I love seeing the bond that these twin sisters have! What a fun session this was!

Glendora, CA Child Photographer : McKenna’s Birthday Mini Session

I had the pleasure of photographing McKenna about 4 years ago. How fun it was to meet up with her and her parents again! She’s grown up so much. This beautiful girl turned 9 years old. She was shy at first, but I was able to get her out of her shell and she warmed up in no time! I loved this session!

Claremont, CA Child Photographer : Austin’s 1st Birthday Mini Session

This little guy was a cutie! I just love when my clients and I are able to incorporate things that showcase who their child is at that particular age! Austin loves trucks and Mickey Mouse! We finished up his mini with a quick cake smash! He went to town with the cake and wasted no time taking the Mickey ears off! Such a sweet little guy.

San Dimas, CA Child Photographer: Giuliana’s Birthday Mini

It’s so much fun to be able to watch my little clients grow up! I was able to photograph this adorable little girl as a newborn and at 6 months old! I was so happy to be able to do her 1st Birthday Mini Session. She was such a sweetheart and was my easiest 1yr old to photograph! She didn’t try to run or crawl away and she looked right into my camera! Such a sweet girl!

San Dimas, CA Family Photographer : The Aguilar Family

Loved working with this family. Such a fun, energetic family! I love sessions where we laugh the entire time!

Pasadena, CA Family Photographer : The Clark Family

San Dimas, CA Family Photographer : The Quitangon Family

I was so excited to finally meet sweet little Charlotte! You might remember her mom’s Disneyland Maternity session here (click to see the session)! Charlotte was such a good baby and did so well during the session. It was so fun to capture them as a family of three!
