Lauren Beesley Photography officially went into business in August of 2017 after several years of casually photographing friends and family. Making this leap into business has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I have met so many wonderful families in our community, traveled to other parts of the country to meet and learn from photographers and marketing experts who have given me the most invaluable guidance and inspiration, met and collaborated with other local business owners who are pursuing their passions, developed new skills, implemented a new business model that better serves my clients, quit my engineering job in Columbus, and so much more. Photography has changed my life, and this business has been a blessing that not only provides for my family, but also allows me to be closer to them on a day to day basis. It allows me to help people feel beautiful, and provide them with images of the people and moments that they want to remember forever. Here’s a look back at the sessions that filled my first full calendar year of business!
