Monday’s Mash-up Santa Barbara, California

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

For those of you who don’t know, this last week I spent in Santa Barbara, California attending a photography conference called UNITED.  The whole week was so incredible and I learned so much from speakers like J&M and Katelyn.  I feel so blessed that I got to be a part of a movement of shoot and share photographers who are so focused on helping their clients become a part of a community.  I can’t wait to implement all of things that I learned this past week and share some of the beautiful city with you this week.  For now, I’ll just share some of the fun instagrams/phone photos from the trip!  Hopefully these will help you feel a little warmer in this snow! Happy Monday!!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
