Capturing moments

Family is wonderful, families are great, and were all a hot mess :) Whether we want to capture photos of the kids before they grow or have a desire to get the family together, or even a need to exhibit how silly and wild our family is, family photos are the perfect way to do it. I am not much about traditional posing when it comes to family photos, I like to keep them very candid to capture your family's specific dynamics and quirkiness. No two families are the same, so I will never perform the same pho

We had such an amazing and fun time with this photo shoot! She is amazing with helping juggle kiddos! Can’t wait to do another with her!

Lauren did our family photos and our daughter’s 12 month photos. She was patient and fun the entire time! She has tons of good ideas, and you can tell that she loves her art. I couldn’t recommend her enough!

She did such an incredible job working with us and coordinating our shoot! Lauren drove from Ft Wayne to Muncie and got such wonderful shots of 12 people- 4 of them under the age of 7!! I will definitely use Lauren Ballenger again for family photographs! Such a great eye and talent!
