The full LKP Experience

I want to tell your family’s story through images for you to relive day after day. The custom portraiture experience begins with getting to know you. We will chat to talk all details of your love story and your family because this ultimately leads to more natural and authentic images which is always the goal! I’ll guide you through the portrait experience from preparing for the session to the portrait experience and beyond - from creating timeless photographs to designing beautiful heirlooms for your family to cherish forever. Here's a closer look at what you can expect...

Your family's legacy


In person reveal to see all of your images for the first time (with a glass of wine or tea in hand!) - think of it as a viewing of a snapshot of your life on the big screen!

Customized session to fit your style and tell your family story - you will enjoy yourself laughing, playing and creating family memories while I observe and document it all.

Pre-session planning meeting where we will discuss styling needs, goals for the session, how you love to display photographs, and what to expect at your photo session.

You'll walk away from the experience knowing that we have documented your days authentically and beautifully… and they will be printed to be enjoyed for years to come, to be seen on your walls and not just your computer, to be flipped through in albums and not a swipe on a phone.

At your reveal, we'll work together to narrow down your image selections and create custom heirlooms from your favorite images.

Custom portrait sessions are an investment in beautiful artistry that will be treasured for generations to come. My goal s to capture your family originally and artistically to create heirlooms that become your family’s legacy. After your initial session, couples and families invest in additional album upgrades and wall art.


family heirlooms


I believe in the power of printed photographs. These are family heirlooms that tell the story of your life and its many stages. From childhood, to falling in love, to parenthood and the family that you grow into together.

We met with Lauren for the first time and knew she was the person we wanted to document our son's first year of life. The session a breeze; even through the baby meltdowns that inevitably happened at our sessions! Her photos honestly transport my husband and I back to the very moment it was taken each and every time we see them...something which is truly a never-ending gift. We have ordered a variety of products from her - from albums, to prints, to a canvas and everything is beautiful and extremely high quality. We have been so happy working with Lauren and cannot wait to do so again in the future!

Lauren made the entire process very easy and the end result was amazing. I love the look of natural newborn photos and she captured exactly what I was hoping for. From the photos, to the prints and books, I could not have been happier with the outcome. We can't wait to work with Lauren on future family photos!

There will never be another today. These moments pass by so quickl and it means the world to me to be able to do this for my family.  I am in love with the images are nice to share, but nothing beats printed wall art to physical albums. We will have these treasures forever.

We are in love.

We all felt very relaxed, which really allowed the kids' personalities to shine through. The images she captured are of them playing and laughing and smiling! The best thing that we took away from the photoshoot is pictures of all of us - I may have millions of photos of my kids on my phone and in everyday life, but rarely do my husband and I both show up in the pictures with the kids. These images are true family heirlooms. The prints we have decorate our home and surround us with some of our favorite memories that we still get to look back on together!

I loved our family session...

Lauren was professional and unobtrusive coming into my home and finding the best possible lighting and locations. She was so patient with me as a new Mom and a newborn who had no intention of sleeping. The final products blew me away and I had a difficult time deciding on my favorite shots. She followed me all the way through the process in helping me pick my order and suggesting layouts for my beautiful photo book. I wish that time with Calum would slow down, but I can't wait to see how she captures his personality in our next session.

More than a newborn session.

I’m so grateful that he chose Lauren Kirkham Photography for the task!  Lauren was a pleasure to work with, from choosing the rooms in our home with the best light, to making me feel comfortable being photographed (11 days after giving birth!), and providing a gentle touch when setting Jack in the perfect position.  The organic family moments that Lauren was able to capture are ones that we will cherish forever.  I honestly had such a hard time picking my favorite pictures (we ordered 15 different prints!). My husband as already discussed booking LKP for Jack’s 1st birthday pictures and I couldn’t agree more!
