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!

Mara: 2 years old

This little girl is seriously too cute and was a lot of fun to work with! She was a little ball of energy and wanted nothing to do with me taking her pictures, as any other toddler would. 😉 But, I was able to work my magic and make a game out of it…she had […]

Kymberlee: 5yr Birthday Photos

I love photographing children! Some may not know, but I graduated from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education. After my husband and I moved to California, I had a hard time finding a teaching job. So, I started substitute teaching, which gave me time to start up my photography business. I have always loved photography […]

Lilly: 5yrs Old

Lilly was one of my first clients when I started my photography journey a little over 4 years ago. She was just one year old then! Looking back at the photos, I’m reminded of just how much I have learned and grown as a photographer in that time. It was so much fun getting to […]
