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!

Happy Halloween

I hope that you all had a Safe and Happy Halloween! This year the kids were Tink and Peter Pan! Matti really felt the need to play the part of Tinkerbell today (you can see her true sass in the photo below). She refused to wear the pom-poms on her shoes, she refused to hold […]

First Homework Assignment

When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter/first, I instantly anticipated all of the things that entail being a mom: the sports games I’d spend my Saturdays at, the first days of school, playdates with friends, playing at the park, art projects, mommy-daughter dates, shopping for kids’ clothes, the homework and projects […]

Claremont, CA Children’s Photographer : {J}’s 3yr Photos

I have discovered that I just LOVE photographing kids! I don’t know if it’s because I graduated in Elementary Education and have kids of my own, that I feel like I can relate to them so well and connect with them, but I just love it! My session with kids are always so much fun! […]

Newport, CA Childrens Photographer : A Girls’ Trip

Just this last weekend my roommates and I from college got together for a much needed girls’ trip! They traveled from Utah and Arizona, and two of us live in California, so this year we decided to do it in the Newport area! We had fun catching up on each other’s lives, shopping, eating yummy […]

San Dimas, CA Childrens Photographer : My Kiddos

I realized that recently I haven’t taken too many photos of my kids, so I figured I’d “attempt” some photos of them last week! And here’s how it all went down: Me: “Matti, do you want to do a little photo shoot?” Matti: “Yeah, sure.” Me: {surprised she even said yes} “OK!!! When Clark wakes […]

Claremont, CA Childrens Photographer : Sisters

I’ve said this before, but two of the biggest compliments as a photographer are when clients refer you to friends and when they come back for another session…both of which this family has done! This year was the third year that I had the privilege of photographing these adorable sisters! Their birthdays are only a […]

Huntington Beach, CA Family Photographer : The Clarkson Family

I was so honored to have the Clarkson family choose me as their photographer! They were traveling from out of state to Disneyland, and thought it would be fun to have family photos taken at the beach! They told me that they googled and talked to a few different photographers, but felt that I was […]
