I've had the pleasure of meeting Lauren during our Montessori training where we became fast, great friends. Since then, we both moved to the eastern half of the country and I was close enough to take a few spontaneous weekend trips (9+ hours one way...that's love). She's been so supportive of my photography, and I was so jazzed when she wanted to do a shoot with her darling daughter Emily when I was in San Diego this summer. It's so fun to see Lauren put her "Master in Motherhood" (what we so often joked was the degree we were obtaining) to work in her own home. She and her husband are so respectable, kind, and present with Emily, hanging with them is so great!
