Natural light portrait and wedding photographer in California

Hey there, I'm Lauren

Hello! I'm Lauren Westra, a Philadelphia-born, short (although genetically Dutch so I should be tall) blonde, and I love chocolate and Diet Coke almost as much as I hate fish and coffee. My other half is a Chip Gaines doppleganger and his dairy farming career keeps this city girl on her toes!  We have a crazy 4-kids-in-4-years thing going on, and while I often feel like I'm drowning in children, I can't picture it any other way. In our spare time, we are working on our latest small business - a wedding venue we're making at some of the barns on our dairy!
