Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! My name is Lauren Gay and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer, loving what I do! My goal is to make sure that you have fun when you are with me, and that your photos convey the wonderful energy you and the ones you love share. I hope you enjoy some of my latest work below!

Ethan | Mini Session

Ethan is seriously the sweetest thing! I absolutely love how serious he is, but found it sweet that if mom and dad were holding him, or looking at him, his little dimples would come out! It was a little bit rainy, but I thought the soft light really added to this session. And Ethan’s smile was pretty bright when it would shine through! :)

Piper | Newborn

One of my best friends had a baby girl in April and I am still just so elated! Piper is absolutely beautiful, and I just loved watching Devin and Curt as parents. I loved every moment they shared as a family of three, but also watching each of them bond with Piper individually. She is just such a lucky little girl and I love her so much!




I was so happy to have a little mini session with Parker! It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I was photographing him as a newborn. I cannot get over how calm and sweet he is! I loved watching these three interact and this stage is just so much fun! As a […]

Eleanora | One!

Jay | One year!


In December we moved to an incredible neighborhood! We’re located in a cul-de-sac and literally all of our neighbors are families with small kids! So not only are we lucky, but our babies are SO lucky! We’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and I was so honored when Rita asked if I’d take some […]

I always enjoy my sessions with this sweet family! I can’t get over how big Zayn is getting and I absolutely love watching him with his older siblings! I’m so happy that warmer weather is here and that we were able to get outside for a while! I can’t wait for his one year session!

Joella | A Birth Story and A Year in Review


Reflecting on this past year is so bittersweet for me. At 10:16 am on February 3, 2015 I became a mom for the very first time. This has been the most incredible, and the hardest, year of my life. I had no idea on that cold morning that my world was about to be flipped upside […]

Cassie and Gary | Lost Creek Winery, Leesburg, VA


I had such an incredible time documenting Cassie and Gary’s wedding this past August! I had never been to Lost Creek Winery, and it did not disappoint! The weather was unbelievably mild for an August day, and this couple could not be any sweeter. Cassie and Gary decided to do a first look, so we had so […]

Their day was filled with so much love AND laughter. I always enjoy every wedding that I do a Bluemont Vineyard, and what […]
