Frequntly Asked Questions



What should I wear?

Great question! If you decide to book with me I'll answer that in great detail. For a simplified answer, wearing something fancy as if you are going to a wedding will make those pictures extra special. Color wise, pastels are great for all skin complexions and help to not reflect unflattering colors up onto the face. all of this creates beautiful light colored images you'll be excited to share. To see specific examples and inspiration for outfits and colors check out my Pinterest Board!


What if I Don't feel comfortable?

That is perfectly okay! I am here for you. I will do all I can to help you relax, enjoy taking pictures, as well as give you my expertise so that we can capture authentic, emotive, fun, and genuine imagery! So throw that fear into the wind, it will be my privilege to serve you and help you leave that stress behind.


Do you travel for destination weddings?

Short answer is yes, definitely! It is important to book your wedding early which allows me to block enough time to travel for your special date. Just remember that the further away the location is the more time it takes for me to travel and get acclimated with the destination. Fill out the contact form and I will be glad to talk to you about travel fees. No fee for any travel within 50 miles of my location.



"Lara is an amazing photographer! We highly recommend her. We wanted pictures that felt natural and light for our family. Lara was able to capture the style and feel we wanted perfectly. She was so great to work with and was a huge help with guiding us to have natural poses while capturing real interactions. Not to mention she also has an amazing eye for detail and made sure that everything was in the right place. We love her and love our pictures!"

Amy & Aaron

I chose Lara Ann Photography for my family portraits because of her focus on light and airy photos that are more lifestyle and not too posed. I love the photographs I got from my family session with Lara. She works well with cranky babies and even family members who hate their pictures taken She was able to complete our family session in less than an hour with tons of amazing pictures to choose from. Do not hesitate to choose Lara as your photographer!

Erin & Grant

Lara was amazing to work with on our newborn photos. She really thought of everything, from the right time of day to get the best light in our home, to extra cushions/blankets for posing, to understanding the style and aesthetic we liked. She was also so understanding whenever baby started crying, giving us plenty of time and space to feed him or calm him and still getting some cute shots of even the crying moments. We love the way our photos came out and Lara made the experience so easy on us.
