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!

Salt Lake City, UT Childrens Photographer : Cam

Lexi and I have been friends since our freshman year at BYU…we both lived on the same floor in our dorms! The ironic thing is that her sister married my cousin, so I guess you could say that we are in a sense family!!! Lexi asked if I’d take photos of her daughter, who just […]

Lehi, UT Childrens Photographer : Gavin and Brooklyn

I’m telling you, I had a lot of sessions while visiting Utah! I was happy when my sister-in-law asked if I could take photos of my niece for their birthday photos. Could they be any cuter?!

Newport, CA Wedding Photographer & Glendora Reception

I had the privilege of shooting Josh and Kelli’s wedding! This was officially my first wedding to shoot!!! I learned a few things after the fact…it’s a little difficult getting up and down on the ground for shots with a pregnant belly, next time I need to remember to put sunscreen on so that I’m […]
