documenting your family's legacy

I want to tell your family's story through images. The custom portraiture experience begins with getting to know you! We'll get together to chat over a glass of wine or coffee to share all the details of your love story and family. In order to provide an individualized portrait experience I love getting to know my clients before our session. Then, I will guide you through the portrait experience from creating timeless photographs to designing beautiful heirlooms for your family to cherish forever.  

My philosophy

starting at $600

Custom portrait sessions are an investment in beautiful artistry that will be treasured for generations to come. My goal is to capture your family in an original, artistic and natural way and to create photographic heirlooms that will become your family's history. After your session we will turn your images into custom designed art work for your walls and albums for your table at your in person reveal session.


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.

The kids got to run around and be themselves, and the images she captured are of them playing and laughing and smiling! We all felt very relaxed, which really allowed the kids' personalities to shine through. 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. Some of my favorite pictures from when I was a kid is of our whole family, and I'm so glad that not only do I get to enjoy photos of all of us now, but that my kids will have these memories to look back on too! 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...

[ next ]

started with her friendship, but after the birth of my son and his newborn session it became so much more than that. 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.

My experience with lauren...

[ next ]

during our son’s first few weeks at home was a priority for my husband - and 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!

Capturing special moments...

about Lauren and her work. She took both our in hospital and at home newborn session when our baby girl was born and we couldn't have picked a better person for the job. She was extremely professional and at the same time very maternal with our girls which made the process such an easy and pleasant experience. But mostly she was able to capture the true essence of our family and the absolute joy and sweetness of those special moments. That's why every time I look at those photos my heart smiles and it is something we will always treasure. That's the beauty of true photography!
