Unique, modern and fun school portraits for kids

About Me


My name is Lauren Kaufmann and I run the local child portraiture studio, Kaufmann Photography. Today’s schools, being proactive, are beginning to look for a unique School Photography experience! In hopes of establishing a valuable partnership between you the parents, your school, and my unique services I will outline my services to you here.

More professional. More memorable. More personal.

I am a full time portrait photographer specializing in women, children, and professional business portraits. I shoot mostly in the studio but also location fun, candid family sessions. I want to share with you some information about my boutique school photography division. Candid school photography, with a big splash of personality, and invaluable attention to detail, is a rapidly growing movement in our region – and I’m excited to offer this to your school. Parents have become very tired of the posed portraits and many families are craving an opportunity for something more custom. More professional. More memorable. More personal.

Check out my work


I would love for you to check out just a handful of examples of my work. I pride myself on capturing the light and creating natural and honest portraits. I’m not sure if you’ve seen anything quite like this before, so I’m excited to help you achieve unique and beautiful portraits of your child!​
