Anniversaries, birthdays, and LIFE happen every day.  I am available throughout the year to capture your precious memories.

My only advice is that if you can control the time, choose cooler months such as December-April.  As a photographer in Orlando, I know that the heat can be brutal on hair and makeup.

There are so many locations in Orlando for your photo shoot. The location of your session is up to you! I know some of the best places to take photos in Orlando. I'll consult with you and suggest locations that match the vision you have for your photo shoot.

So, whether its a park, open field, or special place in the city, I will be happy to discuss and explore those spots with you!

session day

The majority of the time, my clients are not professional models, so being in front of a camera can feel weird. This is why I help coach you with posing that is natural and flattering. 

Don't worry about being photogenic! It is my job to capture your beauty and love. I am a pro at camera angles and posing so all you have to do is laugh and enjoy yourself!


07.

posing

Following the session you'll receive image proofs that will showcase the very best portraits from the session.  You'll have one week to review the photos and choose the images that you love most. 

Once you have chosen your images, I will fully edit all the image to correct color, fix blemishes, edit distracting elements, and crop to perfection. 

Each image is edited and evaluated multiple times to ensure that it is consistent with the session and that all colors and skin tones are true to life.

because when you look good, you feel good

wardrobe styling

As a full service family photographer in Orlando, I offer styling guidance for you and your family so that you can worry less about your outfits and more about having fun during your session.

Long, full-length, flowy dresses and skirts look amazing on camera because they bring extra movement to the photos. Especially when juxtaposed with nature. Consider softer fabrics like chiffon or tulle which allow for beautiful movement!


what to wear foR your photo shoot

If your kids are old enough to understand you, it's a good idea to prepare them for what’s to come. Explain how much the photos mean to you so they know to be on their best behavior.

It also helps if their bellies are full and they’ve had their afternoon nap, beforehand. 

for the littles

Fitted dress pants and collared shirts work best on camera. Solid shades of gray or navy are a strong complement to most women’s outfits.


Part of the experience I provide as your Orlando family photographer is consultation regarding styling.  I will help you at every step of the process, including coordinating your family's outfits.

As you're coordinating your outfits for your family, keep in mind that your outfits will look the most cohesive on camera when the color palette and wardrobe pieces coordinate, but don’t exactly “match.”

The goal for coordinating a family is to visually break up the colors and shades so that you’re not all wearing the same color on top and bottom.

For the GUys

open fields

An open field of tall grass in Orlando at sunset with the golden light causing the background to glow is one of the prettiest backdrops for photos!

Warning: the tall grass can cause itching so make sure the kids are ok with that.

in studio

Join me in my home-studio for classic photos of you and your family. A relaxed environment with clean backdrops that are timeless.

the park

Orlando has lots of beautiful parks that make for perfect backdrops for photos. 

If you're looking for lots of greenery and trees, choosing a park is your best bet! 

As your Orlando photographer, I will consult with you regarding the parks that best fit your vision.

architecture

Sharp lines, cool doors, and city-scapes make for some unique photos!  Whether it's downtown Orlando, at a college campus, or even a boardwalk, your photos will take on a life of their own.

the beach

A little vitamin "sea" is good for the soul and beautiful on camera!  

Beach photos are always classic and clean AND the kids have a BLAST.  Its a fun and gorgeous place to have your photos done, especially at sunset.

in home

Lifestyle photos in your home is a wonderful way to keep the kids "in their element."  

Newborn lifestyle sessions are a perfect time to have an in home session.  

Choosing activities like baking or pillow fights, for older kids, are always fun, too!

destination

There are SO many amazing places throughout the world for photos.  I LOVE traveling.  So, contact me to discuss any travel plans you may have!

I have never felt so beautiful. As a mom, it’s easy to put ourselves last. Easy to concentrate more on our families needs than our own. When Lanh mentioned doing a solo session, I was a bit hesitant . But I am so glad I did. I felt so pampered and so pretty.

Being pregnant isn’t always sunshine and roses. My body has changed so much and sometimes that’s hard to accept. When I look at the images Lanh created, I see myself differently. Although my body has changed, it is amazing and it is growing another beautiful daughter.

Thank you so much, Lanh, for allowing me to see the beauty in my pregnant body and for making me feel so gorgeous!

Thoa

JEN & JOSH

Lanh was incredible. My husband and I are very awkward camera people but her wardrobe skills, coaching, encouragement, and the entire vibe of her studio were so impeccable it put us at ease immediately. Her turnaround times on proofs and final images were also above and beyond what we expected, and having everything included made the stress level of getting everything taken care of nonexistent.

She was also super responsive over phone/text and email. I cannot recommend her enough — or Mel, the hair & makeup artist! (Be warned: However many photos you think you're going to buy, it's going to be more, lol. They're that good.)

Thank you, Lanh and Mel! We will cherish these photos forever.

TIFFANI & STEVE

Everything about my experience with Lanh was nothing short of fabulous. When I was looking for a maternity photographer, I knew I wanted someone who offered a client closet. While there are a few photographers who offer that, none of their websites were as detailed and thorough as Lanh's.

Lanh was prompt in her responses to my inquiries. She was very helpful as I tried on dress after dress in her studio as we worked to find the perfect ones to make me feel amazing.

As the day of the shoot drew near, she kept me updated with email reminders and again was always very timely with her responses. She thinks of everything and will have you covered from head to toe. Hair and makeup was flawless and will make you feel like a goddess.

For the actual shoot , she brings a pop-up tent so you can change into your various outfits and made us feel so at ease. I know most people will say they aren't naturals in front of the camera or know how to pose but again, Lanh will guide you the entire way.

Gallery delivery was super fast as was her turnaround for the final images that we selected. And lastly, the photos are beautiful. You will not regret working with Lanh!

Judith & Davi

AMAZING! 10 STARS! Let me explain... I was unsure of getting maternity photos. Once I finally decided there was a million options.  I knew I didn't want to buy a dress I would wear 1 day. Lanh's gown closet was extensive and I got to CHOOSE MULTIPLE LOOKS FOR MY SHOOT!

Her photos were stunning and while I was worried about the price tag a bit, if you consider the cost of the dresses you would purchase plus consider cost for hair and make up it's a deal.

Day of the shoot she brings a portable tent for you to change into your different gowns. She sets your shoot at what she calls "the Golden hour." This seemed silly at first, but, trust the professional!! The lighting was perfect!! She was patient and directed me and my family.

The icing on the cake of an already amazing experience... the actual photos. They were stunning!  I was in love with all of them! You pay for what you get! I promise you won't be disappointed! Worth every single penny I spent! I cannot thank you enough Lahn! Truly, your so gifted at what you do!! Still so in love with my photos! I'll recommend everyone your way!!

Where do I begin? Lanh was such an amazing photographer to work with. She was not only professional, she was super kind and patient as well. You can tell this is her passion because she puts her entire heart and soul into her work.

She was able to work with my crazy schedule and had everything set up from hair and makeup to finalizing photos and making sure all the details were just right.

I felt so comfortable around her and I think that is very important. I couldn’t be happier to have found her and my pictures are so absolutely perfect.

I am beyond happy with the final product. Thank you again Lanh for everything and I hope to work with you again one day!

Ashley

Jaileen & Kevin

Where do I begin? This is my first pregnancy and it has been a little rough, to say the least, dealing with all the COVID restrictions. I was so lucky to find Lanh. I sent her an email and she emailed me right back. She fit me in that weekend at 38 weeks pregnant!!

I was feeling so self conscious of my changing body and she made me feel beautiful which, honestly, is priceless. I was completely pampered from the moment I walked in, got my hair and makeup done, and got to wear her fabulous dresses. She made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera and took the most gorgeous pictures!

I cannot wait to come back for a Mommy and me shoot! If I could give her a 10 out of 5 I would. Thank you so much for reminding me of the beauty in pregnancy and capturing these memories that I will cherish forever!

Pauline & Evan

Lanh was amazing and went above and beyond during our maternity photoshoot. I found her thru Facebook and immediately knew she had to do our maternity photos. Her photos are breath taking and look like they come out of a fairytale. She truly captures your family in a beautiful way and really listens to what your vision is.

This was our first professional photoshoot and we wanted to capture photos that were memorable for our family and son.  She made sure everything was perfect during the session. I loved the gowns she lets you try on-made me feel so beautiful for the day! She knew how to capture the best photos and took different shots with the lighting. She is amazing and an expert at professional photos.

I can’t say Enough good things about her.Our photos came out so beautiful. She also made us a professional photo album and 2 beautiful canvases that are now hanging in our living room. I’m in love with our photo albums and look at it constantly!!!I’ve had so many compliments from friends and family. Book her, she is worth every penny!

Lanh is amazing! She truly thought of every detail and every picture I could have possibly wanted. Lanh was sure I got BEAUTIFUL (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) classic shots but also really fun and creative ones. She literally was standing in the middle of a bush when she captured my favorite photo from our wedding day!

I was a bride super self conscious about bad angles and double chins and I really appreciated Lanh's "chin up" reminders and her instincts to get really flattering shots. I love love love my wedding photos!!

gisele & John

I don't think I've ever felt more beautiful!

These pictures made this entire pregnancy feel like what I always thought being pregnant should feel like. With the COVID virus we couldn't do anything. But I wouldn't trade these pictures for all the baby showers in the world. I think thanking you is such an understatement. You are so wonderful and made me feel so confident!

Katie

Lanh is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone!!! She photographed my elopement and every detail and shot was perfect! 

She is very detailed orientated and made sure we had all the shots we wanted, especially of those details that were important to me and my husband! Every photo was absolutely beautiful and she even wrote an amazing blog post about our special day that shared our story so beautifully.

I am looking forward to hiring Lanh again to capture more beautiful memories of my family in the future.

the Pinels

Incredibly talented and such a warm, welcoming and easy going person! I’ll start this review by saying she’s as close to a miracle worker as you can get. A few months ago when I contacted Lanh I had a vision in my head and it took only a couple of hours to finalize details and we were set.

The day of the shoot came and the weather ruined our plans but she still managed to get some really beautiful and absolutely stunning shots (Miracle) she worked through the rain, the humidity, mosquitoes, a very tired and hot momma, and my poor husband who has no idea how to pose and hates to smile for pictures. (Again, miracle.) We ended up with breathtaking photos. AND I got pictures of my husband smiling!

I’ve adored everything of working with her and I cannot stop telling everyone about her I’m so happy to have connected with her and I’m glad we now have a family photographer to capture our little family. Lanh, thank you so much for such a wonderful job and creating amazing memories for our son.

the Rubios

Lanh was absolutely wonderful to work with! I was extremely hesitant on doing a maternity shoot and I had no idea how it would be. Lanh exceeded all of my expectations!

Not only did she successfully create the images I had in my head but she offered her own suggestions that turned out so beautiful. She is experienced and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable.

I recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! I had so much fun and I can't wait to shoot with her again.

Angelique

Victoria

I appreciate Lanh and her work! The day I called to speak with her about a maternity photoshoot, she quickly helped us set a date and time.

When I arrived for the photoshoot, she had everything prepared. She even offered water and snacks! I was very impressed with her professionalism and kindness. She made the entire experience amazing. I was astonished that Lanh had such a wonderful wardrobe to borrow from for the photos! (Such a plus!!) She made us feel very comfortable!

Lanh was very responsive to all of the questions I had during the entire process. She is a dream to work with and is passionate about her artwork. Needless to mention, her photography speaks for itself!

The Tung's

We are so lucky to have Lanh be the best photographer. She convinced us to get some family photos captured before the new baby arrives and I have to say.... it was the best decision I’ve made during this pregnancy.

Her dedication, attention to detail, passion in her work, patience, one of a kind vision, couture gowns, capturing our family one last time before we add another little one to our family is so priceless.

Thank you Lanh for pushing for these moments I will always cherish.

savena

I was apprehensive about taking maternity photos because of COVID restrictions but with a push from my mom, we set a photoshoot.  

Lanh's energy made me comfortable immediately! She had all the proper precautions so I felt safe. 

The time she took with dresses, location, and scenery was absolutely amazing. She made sure everything was picture perfect!

The dresses from the client closet were absolutely stunning and made me feel gorgeous. I'm so happy with this experience!

the LIMPERS

We could not have made a better decision in choosing Lanh.

As an untraditional couple, we were hesitant that we wouldn’t find a photographer that would make us both feel comfortable and beautiful. We couldn’t be happier with Lanh!

From the first meeting, Lanh took great care to get to know us as a couple in order to authentically capture our love story. With every detail, Lanh demonstrated the upmost professionalism to ensure that it was a stress-free day.

We look back fondly on our wedding day with the gorgeous images that Lanh created. 

MELANIE

I can't say enough amazing things about Lanh's work. She's top notch in every respect. A true professional from the moment you interact with her. 

From the very first time working with her as her HMUA, she left me speechless and continues to do so. She is fun, detail oriented, and always makes her clients feel right at home in the most cozy, clean, and airy environment. She makes sure every client has snacks to enjoy and an endless closet full of amazing wardrobe choices to choose from. 

In hiring Lanh, you will treasure the unforgettable moments with pictures to last a lifetime

Lanh shot our maternity shoot today and honestly we have never had a better experience with a photographer. She was SO friendly and so professional. My husband and I were a bit nervous and honestly felt a little unprepared but Lanh took care of posing (to detail) and positioning for the perfect lighting-I mean she even had a STAND to get the perfect shot from above!

We were put at such ease and my husband was so impressed (he is very camera shy). Even straight from the camera the shots looked AMAZING.

the hernandez's

Dhilona & Kevin

I came across Lanh’s work on Instagram and instantly fell in love with how elegant her work was. I instantly messaged for a consult/quote. We had a phone consult which was very thorough and expectations were clear.

Lanh is so friendly, efficient and professional. My entire experience was amazing. My husband was so happy as well, and we both are absolutely not photogenic at all. This was for my first pregnancy and I’m so glad I pampered myself with this amazing experience!

Jillian

I had the most amazing maternity experience with Lanh. She does such amazing work and makes you feel so beautiful. I’m no model but she sure made me feel like one! She helped me pose and made sure each detail was right. From the makeup to the dresses to her studio, it was a dream day. My pictures turned out even better then a ever imagined. I am seriously so happy I found her and booked with her. You won’t regret it!  

the Borst's

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us. 

The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.

The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.

PETRO-KEEN

I am soooo happy with the experience I had with Lanh; and I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to a photographer to capture the essence and beauty of pregnancy.

2020 was such a busy year for me, that it wasn’t until a month before I actually gave birth that I was finally thinking; that I should have taken maternity pics. I thought it was impossible to find someone to do them that late, so I accepted that I wouldn’t have any. Then, a friend of mine found Lanh’s page on IG; and encouraged me to try her as a one stop location for the hair, makeup, attire, and the dresses needed for my shoot.

Lanh was quick to respond when I reached out. I couldn’t have asked for a more efficient and effective photographer, everyone is just as in love with my photos as I am; and I will cherish them for a lifetime. 

Tracy & Lori

Lanh is an amazing photographer and an even more amazing person! She is professional, personable, and knows how to make you look good ;)

We did a maternity shoot with her and then a year later did our baby girl's first birthday photos. She was so patient with our daughter and captured the most perfect photos despite the fussiness!!

She also has very fast turnaround time and is always willing help! We HIGHLY recommend Lanh!

the pepe's

I've always had trouble finding a photographer. Lanh made my husband and I comfortable. We felt natural, we didn't have any crazy poses where your arm looks dislocated, she knew exactly how to direct you without making you feel uneasy.
  
She will catch the perfect shot in the perfect lighting, and let me tell you, she KNOWS her lighting. 

She captured our family twice now, but I'm already planning for this year and I can not wait!! She is also stuck with me now, I'm not letting her go lol

Incredibly talented and such a warm, welcoming and easy going person! I’ll start this review by saying she’s as close to a miracle worker as you can get. A few months ago when I contacted Lanh I had a vision in my head and it took only a couple of hours to finalize details and we were set.

The day of the shoot came and the weather ruined our plans but she still managed to get some really beautiful and absolutely stunning shots (Miracle) she worked through the rain, the humidity, mosquitoes, a very tired and hot momma, and my poor husband who has no idea how to pose and hates to smile for pictures. (Again, miracle.) We ended up with breathtaking photos. AND I got pictures of my husband smiling! 

I’ve adored everything of working with her and I cannot stop telling everyone about her  I’m so happy to have connected with her and I’m glad we now have a family photographer to capture our little family. Lanh, thank you so much for such a wonderful job and creating amazing memories for our son.

The Rubios

I was apprehensive about taking maternity photos because of COVID restrictions but with a push from my mom, we set a photoshoot. 

Lanh's energy made me comfortable immediately! She had all the proper precautions so I felt safe. 

The time she took with dresses, location, and scenery was absolutely amazing.  She made sure everything was picture perfect!

The dresses from the client closet were absolutely stunning and made me feel gorgeous. I'm so happy with this experience!

I am soooo happy with the experience I had with Lanh; and I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to a photographer to capture the essence and beauty of pregnancy.

2020 was such a busy year for me, that it wasn’t until a month before I actually gave birth that I was finally thinking; that I should have taken maternity pics. I thought it was impossible to find someone to do them that late, so I accepted that I wouldn’t have any. Then, a friend of mine found Lanh’s page on IG; and encouraged me to try her as a one stop location for the hair, makeup, attire, and the dresses needed for my shoot.

Lanh was quick to respond when I reached out. I couldn’t have asked for a more efficient and effective photographer, everyone is just as in love with my photos as I am. I will cherish them for a lifetime. 

PETRO-KEEN

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us.

The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.

The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.

the Borst's

I can't say enough amazing things about Lanh's work. She's top notch in every respect. A true professional from the moment you interact with her.

From the very first time working with her as her HMUA, she left me speechless and continues to do so. She is fun, detail oriented, and always makes her clients feel right at home in the most cozy, clean, and airy environment. She makes sure every client has snacks to enjoy and an endless closet full of amazing wardrobe choices to choose from.

In hiring Lanh, you will treasure the unforgettable moments with pictures to last a lifetime

Melanie

We could not have made a better decision in choosing Lanh.

As an untraditional couple, we were hesitant that we wouldn’t find a photographer that would make us both feel comfortable and beautiful. We couldn’t be happier with Lanh!

From the first meeting, Lanh took great care to get to know us as a couple in order to authentically capture our love story. With every detail, Lanh demonstrated the upmost professionalism to ensure that it was a stress-free day.

We look back fondly on our wedding day with the gorgeous images that Lanh created. 

The Limpers

I've always had trouble finding a photographer. But.  Lanh made my husband and I comfortable. We felt natural, we didn't have any crazy poses where your arm looks dislocated, she knew exactly how to direct you without making you feel uneasy.

She will catch the perfect shot in the perfect lighting, and let me tell you, she KNOWS her lighting.

She captured our family twice now, but I'm already planning for this year and I can not wait!! 

the pepe's

Lanh is an amazing photographer and an even more amazing person! She is professional, personable, and knows how to make you look good ;)

We did a maternity shoot with her and then a year later did our baby girl's first birthday photos. She was so patient with our daughter and captured the most perfect photos despite the fussiness!! She also has very fast turnaround time and is always willing help! We HIGHLY recommend Lanh!

Photographing in Orlando means watching the weather.  I keep an eye on the weather report the entire week leading up to your photo shoot.  If it does look like it will 100% rain, we can either reschedule, or try to do an earlier time where the rain won't be an issue.
