When I'm not behind the camera you can find me behind my laptop editing images, out on walks enjoying the fresh air, laying on the grass reading a book, exploring new beaches, traveling to new places or watching movies.
I love capturing all of the beautiful moments of motherhood. I have been a child and family photographer for over 10 years, but once I became pregnant with my first child, I found a whole other layer of magic and started to photograph the journey right from maternity. I'd love to capture your motherhood journey for you. In my sessions, we let time stand still for just a little while and I capture the magic of your journey from maternity, to newborn, baby, child, teen and family.
I'm LAUREN :)
am so excited you're here. A little about me, I'm British, originally from Liverpool, but have been living in Los Angeles for 15 years. I'm a mom to my beautiful daughter, and son who will be born later this year. I love nothing more than fun adventures with my family and capturing the beauty in every day.
A snapshot into my life
My family are my world, and my favorite place to be is hanging out with them. When I'm not working, my husband and I love to go to new fun places for dinner and to see movies. We love to spend Spring and Summer weekends playing at the beach and taking picnics to the park.
Watching the world through my daughters eyes brings so much color and joy to my life every day.
I love to travel to new places, to see and explore new things. Since I moved across the world from where I grew up, I try to get back to visit my family in England each year. I love to travel to new countries and explore new beaches. The beach makes me feel happy, relaxed and inspired. Traveling with young children definitely makes it a little harder and a little less relaxing these days, but exploring new places as a family is wonderful.
Our newborn session with Lauren was beyond-words-amazing. From the moment we got to the studio, she made us feel comfortable and took the time to get to know our baby girl. Lauren truly loves babies and is therefore patient with babies and new parents. Our one-week old was crying and fussy when she got to the studio, so Lauren let me feed her and put her to sleep before starting with the photo session. We never felt rushed. Once the photo session started, Lauren really worked her magic. She simply “gets” babies and was able to pose her and dress her without waking her. When our baby looked like she was about to wake up, Lauren would soothe her back to sleep and continue to work. It was all very organic and nothing was forced. She also has adorable baby clothes and props, so we didn’t feel stressed at the thought of having to prepare for the session in any way. It was truly a beautiful experience, and we highly recommend Lauren of Elsie Rose Photography for a magical newborn shoot!

If you’re on the fence about who to have take your newborn/family shots think again. Elsie Rose Photography is the number one pick. Run by creative Lauren she provides that super personal service, it’s not one shoe fits all with her. She worked with me on Location/styling and overall appearance of my photo shoot.
Lauren works super fast and efficiently but most of all she gets the shots. I had so many beautiful pictures to choose from. She was able to bring out the personality of my very shy little one, establishing a very good connection with her from the get go. Super professional, great value and a service I’d use over and over again

I did a mommy and me session with Lauren, as being the mom, it’s usually me taking the cute pics of my daughter with her daddy, and I wanted something to remember the early days of her toddlerhood by. I was blown away by the captivating images that Lauren was able to get. Not only did she get the most precious moments, but the colors and the backgrounds are absolutely stunning. She was so warm and welcoming that myself and my daughter were instantly at ease and I loved all the photos from our session. I can’t recommend her highly enough to anyone who is looking for family or child portraits. Thank you so much Lauren!!!

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Lauren twice now. The first time my youngest was only a few months old and she took the most amazing photos of her & her big sisters. She also did headshots for all 3 girls (ages 1, 6 and 8) recently and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Lauren has a fabulous personality and all my girls are crazy about her. Her ability to have even my 1 year old comfortable enough to pose for her was amazing. We can’t wait to work with her again!

Lauren was absolutely fantastic with my son. She was so gentle and caring he hardly made a sound. She puts so much attention and love into her craft, the results speak for themselves. It was the best experience ever and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Lauren is a truly fantastic photographer who has done Holiday photos, pregnancy, Mother’s Day, birthday and cake smash photos for my family. She has a wonderfully relaxed studio which makes me, my husband and our 2 children feel at ease. She always manages to get great shots because of how relaxed the shoot is as well as her photography skills and my children love having photoshoots with her. My oldest child can be very serious but Lauren manages to get genuine smiles from him and all of us - no forced cheesy grins or awkward poses here! I’ll be going back to Lauren for as long as she’ll have us as the photos are some of my most cherished memories.

Absolutely incredible photographer! Lauren was so great with my whole family, (my husband who hates having his photo taken and a wild toddler who won’t sit still) the whole family really enjoyed the session. The photos are incredible and look magical. I’m so grateful for these beautiful memories that I get to keep forever. Do not hesitate to book her- I promise you will not regret it!
Holly & Quinn
Lauren has shot photos of my daughter on multiple occasions. Not only are her photos incredible, but they capture the truth and essence of my daughter; Lauren's skill and style demonstrate a nuanced balance between artistic interpretation and capturing a real moment in time. Cannot recommend Elsie Rose Photography enough!

All it takes is one look at the gallery for ElsieRose Photography Studio. Lauren is extremely talented and has captured some very special moments for our family! She knows what to do, and where to go to achieve the type of photos you are looking for. Lauren is fun, and energetic, so my children always enjoy their photo session. The result, beautiful and stunning images that will be cherished forever.
We had a newborn photo shoot with our ten day old daughter and Lauren was beyond amazing! She is THE Baby Whisperer. The vibe was very calm and relaxed and our daughter just molded to Lauren’s touch. The poses and pictures are absolutely adorable, beautiful, and professional. And even when our daughter behaved slightly unprofessional (she had an “accident” on a sheet while being photographed), Lauren handled it so smoothly and didn’t make us feel badly or embarrassed. (Lauren just makes everyone feel sooo comfortable) My daughter didn’t cry and pretty much slept through the whole thing, and we got such fantastic photos that we’ll cherish always — this woman has a gift and I couldn’t recommend her more.

WOW, WOW, WOW! What an experience for both our one year old, Charlotte and for us the parents. Lauren made us all feel so comfortable and involved my wife and I throughout the shoot which made Charlotte’s first shoot ever comfortable, enjoyable, fun and extremely memorable! Our biggest issue was trying to convince Charlotte to leave Lauren’s Studio! I can’t recommend Lauren enough and I look forward to scheduling Charlotte’s two year old shoot.

We’ve had several photo shoots over the years with Elsie Rose Photography and every time I get our photos back, I am astonished by how beautiful and perfect they are. I’m always so excited to show them off.
Lauren’s sets are so exquisitely styled and her taste can only be described as impeccable. Lauren has such a natural creative flair and tenacity for photography. She knows what looks good, what works and what doesn’t.
Importantly, Lauren has an amazing rapport with my two toddlers. She can really engage and connect with kids, and always gets them smiling for the most perfectly natural family photos.
I couldn’t be happier with her work and professionalism. I highly recommend Elsie Rose Photography!

Lauren was amazing! She was great to work with. My kids both loved her (8 yo & 10 months). The photos turned out beautifully and the turn around was really quick. I can't thank her enough for the wonderful photos. We'll treasure them forever.
