About Me

A little about your photographer | photo credit: Jessica Weinstock Photography

Hi! I'm Lauryn.

Owner and photographer of Eli and James Photography.

I’m a cheapskate, I hug everyone, and I love the color purple, watching movies, hosting parties, and of course, my children. I HATE (I don’t use that word often) cotton balls, chalk, and when people chew with their mouths open.

My children helped me find my way in photography. They are troopers when I need models, and it helps that they are gorgeous (maybe I am a little biased).
The emotion I feel every time I look at a picture of their darling faces is what started me on this journey. I want to give that to each and every family I meet. To capture those little details and connections that are so quickly gone.

I said I was frugal, and I meant it. Couponing, price matching, seeking out crazy deals gives me a rush. I tend to shop around, in hopes to find a better deal, before purchasing anything. If I can find a way to get cash back, that’s even better. It’s so dorky, but that’s me. And I am not ashamed to admit that I’ve gone back to a store because I forgot to use a $1 off coupon.

So, that’s me. Of course there is more, but if I shared everything now, what would we talk about when we meet.

Hope to talk to you soon!
