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!

Glendora, CA Child Photographer : First Tooth

My little girl lost her first tooth today! About two weeks ago she was talking to me and I noticed that her tooth looked crooked…I then realized that it was loose! It’s just looked like a jagged tooth for weeks because she didn’t wiggle it much. Today, I told her how she better hurry and […]

Jonni: Missionary Pictures

My youngest sister, Jonni, was called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the England London South Mission. We took some quick shots a week before she left. She left April 4th, and I’ve yet to post her pictures (I’m way behind here). Other than emails and […]

A Special Announcement…

We will be welcoming a new baby to our family this summer! Since we’re such Disney fans I figured it was only fitting I announce this way! We’ll have “three mouseketeers” soon!

My Kiddos : Halloween 2012

It’s no lie…I get super stressed photographing my own kids! Throw in a holiday that requires capturing photos and there’s even more added stress! Typically, on Halloween day I am running late taking my kids trick-or-treating uptown during the day, while chasing after them and I’m lucky if I get a good photo of them. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Glendora, CA Childrens Photographer : Where does the time go?

Let me just warn you that there are lots of photos in this post…I couldn’t help myself and was having a hard time deciding on only a select few! My little girl is turing 3 years old tomorrow! It is a bittersweet feeling. It is so rewarding watching her grow up into a beautiful girl, […]

Saratoga Springs, UT Childrens Photographer : Brooklyn 2yrs

My sister-in-law asked if I could take my niece’s 2 year photos while we were visiting Utah. Let me start by saying that I do not specialize in studio style photography…in fact, it’s quite a challenge for me! But, my sister-in-law really wanted it, so I figured a little challenge doesn’t hurt. However, it ended […]
