Meet Lanae

Before I even meet my clients face to face the day of their session, I want to establish a connection and a friendship with them so that when we do meet up one on one, we all feel like we are getting together for another fun filled adventure.  No worries, I’ll start the introductions off with a few tid-bits of information about me.

I’m Lanae, a go-getter, let’s make a list and do it kind of girl who finds joy running after not only my own two kids but also after anyone who shows up on my doorstep looking for some photo fun.  I love wide open country landscapes, warm creamy light and vintage photo props.  Maternity, Newborn, and Senior sessions are my specialty! If I’m not behind the camera, you’ll probably find me enjoying time with my family of four and friends or getting my sweat on at a crossfit class.  It’s not too hard to win a one way ticket to my heart, turn on some country music, pass a bag of banana laffy taffy my way, hand me a cup of  coffee (straight up light roast with a sprinkle of cinnamon) and a vintage photo prop or two and we will be best friends forever guaranteed!
