“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

In this stunning child photo session from Lauren Jo Photography, the whole world DOES appear to be a garden!

What We Love:

Lauren:   This is one of my favorite sessions to date. I took pictures for this family last summer, and it doesn’t hurt that they live in a house surrounded by fruit orchards, right near Lake Ontario.

For this session, though, we focused on their girls – Caroline and Catherine. I was a little nervous because of their ages, but sometimes things just click (pun intended). Dressed in some of the most adorable outfits I’ve ever seen, we picked flowers, played in some bubbles, hugged a big stuffed bear, ate some cherries straight off the tree, and looked at pictures of my doggies on my phone (mainly for bribery).  We did have a pretty, pink balloon, but that popped about 30 seconds in. Regardless, we got some amazing shots – and had so much fun at the same time.

This is why I love what I do. Not for one second, did this session feel at all like work.

Lisa and Rachel:  We love this child photo session because Lauren has captured the curiosity of childhood so beautifully and completely.  The light and surroundings are stunning and the perfect setting for two curious girls to explore.  Lauren captured a beautiful selection of candid and lightly posed shots.  Thank you so much for sharing this lovely session with us Lauren!
