The People Study
The people study was designed to help me expand my portfolio while getting to know people through the lens of my camera. Photography has been a great way for me, a fairly introverted person, to connect with people. I think it is a beautiful study of human nature, creativity, and life. At times I may be trying to manipulate how we see ourselves, which in turn can make being human more humorous, more thought provoking, and if nothing else, more fun. I love working with new faces, and this gives me a way to do so. It is an ongoing experiment with ever-changing goals, and this is why it started as a free service; pictures range from the cliche to the outrageous. At this moment in time, I do not charge for the photo session. That being said, due to the high volume of clients and costs for materials, I am requesting that any photos (on a flash drive or printed) be purchased on my online store starting September 1st, 2013. I promise your purchase will be completely worth it-everything will be shipped in adorable packages and with personal thank you cards from me, and you will always receive two to four of my favorite photos posted as digital downloads for free. So here's the break down:
Session fee: $0.00
Session length: Approximately two hours, Unlimited Outfit Changes
Free: Two to four of my favorite photos from the session as digital downloads
Additional purchases can be made on the online store. ($75 for all of your best photos from your session on a beautiful wooden Lauren's Lens USB drive)
Graphic Design / Branding / Logo Fabrication
If you have a band or business in need for flyers or invitations, a logo or a poster, consider Lauren's Lens' Graphic Design services. If you have any artistic needs, this package is perfect. I will have an initial consultation with you to discuss your ideas and preferences to make sure the designs I create capture your vision. Within a few weeks, I will show you several designs that we can discuss and you will be able to tweak. This is a hands-on process that can take a while, but if you aren't too picky and need something quick, there is an option to expedite the process for faster results with less input. I mostly work on artistic images, and if I feel I cannot create exactly what you are interested in creating, I will refer you to someone who can do that for you. So here's the break down of prices and products:
Graphic Design Services
Services Include but are not limited to: Initial consultation, 3 to 4 designs upfront, continued conversation about your needs, and by the end of week three, you will receive a JPEG, PSD, PNG, ESP and/or TIFF version of your logo.

Senior Portraits Package
Senior year is a remarkably important milestone in an individual's life; it is her last year in high school, first year before college, and a fork in the road for change, and that is why it is so necessary to capture it! Personally, I prefer to capture who you are in a classic and artistic way, using the most cutting edge photography techniques. I want these photos to be as much art as they are memorabilia, so that ten years down the line, you will love them just as much as you do this year. Although senior photos mark an important stepping stone in one's life, I believe they should be timeless.
This package is perfect if you just need a couple of photos for the year book, graduation announcements, and Facebook. Guys typically prefer this option because of the simplicity and ease at which it is completed.
Session length: 45 minutes to one hour, one location, two outfit changes
This package includes ten of your best photos on a flash drive, and unlimited printing and web rights. You will also receive a little black book with twenty pages of photos. Announcements available. Your photos will be returned to you within two weeks of your session.
The Simple Session
This package is a great combination of digital images and prints.
Session length: Two hours, one location, up to 3 outfit changes
This package includes 7 prints of any size (wallet to 8x10) of your choice. You will also receive a signature wooden Lauren's Lens flash drive with all of your best images (Typically 25-30 exposures), a little black book of photos with 20 pages of our favorite pictures, and 30 announcements or graduation invitations.
Session length: Three hours, up to two locations, and 3-5 outfit changes
This package includes 30 prints of any size (from wallet to 8x10), 30 to 50 high quality copies of your best photos on a signature wooden Lauren's Lens flash drive, 50 complimentary announcements and Thank You cards, a photo book with 30 pages, and unlimited printing and web rights.
There is a 25% discount for family and friends of my alma mater TMI - The Episcopal School of Texas.
Photo Editing Services
If you like the editing style you see on my site, I offer an editing service that utilizes all of the same methods I use on my work. From touching up acne, removing unwanted objects, to adding textures, working with curves, and perfecting your photos in general, this is a great investment. Photographers can often double their prices when their clients see top notch editing. No corners will be cut; your photos will look brilliant, and you and your client will both be happier. Or if you are not a professional and just need your Christmas pictures or senior photos taken by Aunt Susie or your neighbor with a dSLR edited, I also take cases like this.
Fee: $2 per picture or for larger groups of photos, $20 a batch (event, photo session, etc).
You will receive your photos within one week. You will receive them via email, drop box, or Facebook.
For an additional charge of $25, I will mail you all of your photos on a signature Lauren's Lens wooden USB.
This service is best for companies and aspiring artists who need one or two basic or creative head shots. I have experience with dance companies, medical groups, and individuals in need of photos for their resumes. You are welcome to use my studio set up with backdrop and soft boxes (lights). I also have an additional service where I will travel to your office or home, set up my equipment there and do the session at the place that is most convenient for you.
For individuals: $30 (You will receive digital proofs of your best 3 head shots and up to 20 digital downloads by USB (your own, or for purchase) or through Dropbox.)
For groups 8 and above: $60 an hour. (You will receive 1-2 digital downloads of the best photos for each individual)
For concierge services* an additional fee of $75 will be added to your bill.
Concierge services include backdrop set up, professional lighting, and one photographer on location. Schedule a photo session with a time, date, and location, and your photographer will arrive 30 minutes beforehand to set up. No chair provided. If you would like individuals to be seated, please provide seating.
