About Lauren

Rachael Pearce Photography

Lauren is a police wife, a mother to three (Everett, Ella, and Otto), and an Arizona native. She’s sarcastic, kind of awkward, and a little bit of a perfectionist. Lauren enjoys sleeping in, exploring new places with her family, and obsessing over her kitchen’s cleanliness. Home is her happy place.

Lauren began her photography venture at the beginning of 2016 and has spent countless hours studying and practicing portrait photography, working with studio and natural light, learning the ins and outs of newborn posing and safety, and more. She is so excited to put her education to work in order to capture some beautiful, timeless images for you and your family to cherish forever!

The home-Studio

Lauren's home-studio is located in northwest Peoria, near the Loop 303 and Happy Valley Parkway. Easy access from the north and west valley.

“Though she be but little, she is fierce.” - Shakespeare

The studio is in a cozy 12’x10’ den, but don’t be deterred by it’s small size. It has everything Lauren needs to create the perfect scene for maternity, newborn, and children’s portraits.
