T Family Session

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Chriselda, Miguel, and their two adorable girls to snap some family portraits. The family drove up to Oceanside and we met on base at Camp Pendleton at a spot that reminds both Chriselda and me of our home state, Texas! 
I met this gorgeous family earlier this year when I spent Valentine’s Day volunteering with with the San Diego Help-Portrait group to do a fundraiser for Haiti. Chriselda, who is also a photographer, and I had both participated in Help-Portrait last year, but at different locations. See her blog posts about the Haiti fundraiser here and here! This Saturday, she and I will be working together at two locations, and I can’t wait! (To find out more about the Help-Portrait movement, please take a look here.)

For now, enjoy these fun photos!

Thanks again for allowing me to capture your growing family! :) See you soon!!

W Family Session and a SPECIAL!

It’s Thanksgiving already! Well, what better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by sharing some photos of a recent session I did with the W Family? I met up with Fred, Jenna, and their adorable kids at their house, then we went to a nearby playground to grab a few shots. It was cold and cloudy that day, but they rocked it and we got some great shots before hurrying back inside for some delicious hot chocolate. :)

Many thanks to this lovely family for allowing me to capture a fun moment!

And now for the special…

It’s BROWN THURSDAY! Do you know what that means?? Well, I don’t really either.. In fact, I just made it up. (I think!) In any event, with all the craziness happening tomorrow, Black Friday, I’m happy to announce a special on family sessions booked this month!
Contact me by 7:00pm next Tuesday, November 30, and I’ll be more than happy to book an hour-long family session with you and your loved ones before the end of the year for only $125! The price includes your time in front of the camera with me, editing of all images, an online viewing gallery you can share with your family and friends, and a disc of high-resolution files.

The fine print: This special is good for a one-hour photography session with Lauren Nygard at the location of your choice (within reason!) for up to five people. If you are a family (or group of friends) of 6 or more, the price increases by $25 per person. As always, military families receive additional discounts, so please contact me for more information.

Rachel and Lamar, plus 1!

Hi everyone! 
I’m so happy to show y’all these maternity shots I got before Rachel popped! You may recognize Rachel and Lamar from a previous post, when I captured their gorgeous wedding day here in San Diego. Rachel contacted me to shoot some beautiful belly shots before their son was born, and I was ecstatic! I met up with them at Powerhouse Park on the beach in Del Mar, near where Lamar had proposed. We had a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific that night and I’m excited to show you what we got!
Many thanks again to Rachel and Lamar for allowing me to be a part of this special time in your lives! I can’t wait to meet him!!

Senior Portraits with Mark and Caroline

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to take senior pictures for two siblings: Mark and Caroline. They are both graduating this year: Mark obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Texas A&M University, and Caroline is graduating from T.M.I. (high school) this weekend. Isn’t he the most handsome college graduate and she the most gorgeous high school graduate this year?!?

Ok, ok, ok. Mark and Carline are my brother and sister! I wasn’t going to tell you, but I’m really proud of them, so I’m happy to say, Congratulations to them both! :)
