you're about to be a brand new mama

And so in love with your tiny little baby

Sleep deprived, but falling in love more and more every second, realizing how insanely fast it's all going! I am here to help STOP TIME. That's my job. To literally freeze the moment into a beautiful memory you can forever look back on. 

I have been photographing professionally for over 5 years. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby, and family. I am NOT a wedding photographer - it takes a special person to do weddings, and I am not that person! I LOVE the babies, bellies, and families!

I aim to educate my clients on the full experience. You will see a lot of information on my website so you are fully prepared for photo shoots. I also aim to provide the best customer service you can imagine! I will not leave you high and dry wondering what to expect for your photo session. 

Early on in my photography career I learned how I felt about clothes propelling your photo shoot into the next level. What I mean by that, is making your photos look timeless, classic, ageless.

Boutique maternity gowns can cost upwards of $300, so I decided I would invest in the gowns so my clients didn't have to spend so much on something they'd wear for such a short period of time! I've spent a lot of time building my collection so everyone can find something they love. 

I'm here to help moms like you feel like a million dollars. 

You're in the right place.

lauren's Philosophy

I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art Education with a minor in Photography. In 2003 I began teaching high school darkroom and digital photography. In 2012, I graduated with a Masters in Special Education (which ties in my love of babies with Down Syndrome). 

A few years later I opened the doors to Lauren McCormick Photography and I'm so excited to be able to take your photos and help you make your walls smile! I offer a custom experience to help you get your beautiful photos up on the wall so you're able to view them every day. I offer my clients superior customer service, a variety of professional high-end products, all at an affordable price.

My Story

My favorite things

I'm a coffee drinker (at home: coffee from Dublin Roasters, an amazing local coffee shop you MUST try out, on the go: Starbucks iced skinny vanilla latte!), craft beer drinker (love the hoppy IPA's), mindless reality tv watcher (The Bachelor! EEee!!). When I'm not working, I'm spending time with the family by hanging out on our deck, exploring downtown Frederick, playing in our neighborhood lake beaches, hiking the neighborhood trails, snuggling up to a movie, visiting a local brewery, or going picking for seasonal fruits or veggies. I've recently rekindled my love of reading, I read about 50 books a year (80% are thrillers)! I am an animal lover, we have an older dog that is half beagle, half lab, and a golden retriever puppy, and a long haired cat. And lastly, I love working out on my Peloton! If you ride, send me your leaderboard name!

My children, Christopher and Molly
