    Give us a minute to introduce ourselves. We are Lauren and Lindsay of Laurel Isle Photography. Yes, we are sisters and no, we aren't twins (we get that questions more than one would think!) We started this business about 3 years ago with nothing more than a dream, two cameras and a group of people who believed in us. From there we have grown from whatever-you-need photographers to wedding/portrait/boudoir photographers and we couldn't feel more blessed!

    In this last year, Lauren has moved up to Oregon. We now work in both California and Oregon and we LOVE IT! This move has enabled us capture more stories then we ever thought possible. Your story is our thing really. We love to capture how you met, who you love, and where you are headed. Browse around our site, and see what we have done. If you're interested in us capturing your story, feel free to call or email! We would love to hear from you. <3

Mettler Family {Portrait Session} Los Angeles Family Photographer

Today is my birthday. I am turning 27 and I think I am almost feeling my age. I am no longer stuck in that I feel 17, but really that was a decade ago twister. I am now finally owning that I have graduated college, I pay rent, I have my own business and more importantly, I am raising a little human being!

I want to have long dinners with friends, I want to go to bed early with my husband and I crave for adventures that start when the sunrises. I want to change the things around me not for myself, but for the future generations. I want a savings account for my child and a 401(k) for myself. I think at 27 I finally feel adult.

And so far, adult doesn’t feel so bad. Granted, I am only 10 hrs in, but nothing to complain about yet!

Here is a sweet session I did of this girl. She has a long way before she is an adult. Thank goodness!












Fall Promo Mini Sessions {Family Portraits} Los Angeles Family Photographer

Almost every season I try to put together a stack of mini sessions for my client family. This fall we headed to Kenneth Hahn Park in LA. It is one of the few local places that not only has a beautiful stream with a bubbling water fall, but it also is starting to actually look like fall! The leaves are changing colors, there is a soft autumn glow and the bushes blush with berries. It was perfect for what I was looking for.

I am so thankful for all the famiiles that came out for these sessions. It was so much fun and I loved how their images turned out.:)I am now bookingg for my Holiday Promo Sessions. Email me for more info:



Lucas! {Portrait Session} Pasadena Child Photographer

I can’t believe it is already Halloween and that officially, Holiday Season is around the corner. My husband has already begun saving up for Christmas and it’s less than a month before we carve a turkey in Oregon with my sister and long lost friends. I am excited for this Holiday season, but that means there is a lot of work to be done. Hopefully I won’t get behind this year!

So here is a new blog post of a sweet session I did a few weeks ago. This boy is one and very awesome! It was so great to meet him, his buckets and his rocks.;)



Hope Carson {Event Session} Carson and Southbay Area Event Photographer

I think some of the best parties are surprise parties, and surprise parties that aren’t a birthday party. Like this one! The pastor’s at Hope Carson have served their church and community for the last 10 years, so it was only fitting that a surprise Luau was thrown in their honor. I have grown up as a pastor’s kid and I have seen my parents bear more burdens than most. There is a whole group of people that rely on them, look up to them and are consistently asking them to give. It’s hard work! That’s why this was so special to me because thank yous are rare (even for a pastor) and a thank you this big is really amazing. I had such a great time capturing the┬áPolynesian dancers and really the love that filled that party.:)

Thank you, Hope Carson, for asking me to be a part of the fun. I hope your community continues to grow in faith and in love for one another.

- Lindsay


Benjamin! {Cake Smash Session} Pasadena Child Photographer

Two Cake Smash Sessions back to back.. and both boys are friends! How fun is that? It’s Tuesday and I am day dreaming of another session like this one. Between all the smiles, cute outfits and hot air balloons this session was definitely the dreamiest! Its got me already planning out my own Cake Smash Session. My girl isn’t even 2 months old yet, but all this inspiration definitely giving me a creativity itch.:)

Thank you, Ben and Family, for such a fun and creative session. You guys are always a joy to shoot and I can’t wait for our session this holiday session. <3
