Lauren Ford Photography

Last week, my friend Lauren had an impromptu photo session with the kiddos. Lauren is a fantastic photographer, so I expected some darling photos, but I wasn’t prepared for just HOW DARLING they were.

Fantastic, right? Lauren’s warm, friendly energy just clicks with kids right off the bat. She captured so many great shots, and there wasn’t a meltdown in sight. Hallelujah.

To all my lovely locals looking for family photos, Lauren is offering several “mini-sessions” for the holidays that are $100/15 min, including a CD of images. (Perfect for holiday cards! Or, ahem, plastering all over your blog.) Lauren’s standard sessions are $200/30 min and $300/hour (including CDs).

And! Since Lauren is a total sweetheart, she is offering one of my local readers a free photo session, which will also include a CD of the edited images. If you live in the Southern California area (or are planning to visit within the next year), please leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win. I’ll keep the giveaway open until next Friday, October 28th at 6pm PST. Good luck!

Check out Lauren’s gorgeous portfolio at her website and her Facebook page. Thanks so much for the beautiful photos, Lauren!

      Hi Linette! I do make it down to San Diego for photo shoots quite often and I have one tentatively scheduled for November 5th. Send me an email with your contact info and let me know if that might work for you. If not, I will let you know the next time I am going to be down there.
