I take pride in knowing that each and every one of my clients will receive a unique and high-quality experience. I love telling the story of my clients’ special day, capturing authentic moments while also making sure everything looks beautiful. From start to finish, I am dedicated to ensuring that each of my clients feels comfortable, valued, and that the end product is of the highest quality. 

When I’m not holding a camera in my hand, you can find me shopping with my daughter,  watching my son play sports, going to church, singing, working out, or relaxing in my backyard watching tv with my hubby.

As a photographer, I believe that true art comes from dedication and hard work, which is why I genuinely care about my craft.

We cannot emphasize enough how amazing our wedding photos are! Lavel is a phenomenal photographer who helped us beautifully capture the joy, laughter, and love at our wedding. It was abundantly clear from the beginning that Lavel has an excellent eye for arranging stunning photos, as well as a special talent for working with her subjects and bringing out everyone's best sides. I don't plan on getting married again, but if I did I would hire Lavel in a second.

Lavel was fantastic to work with! She did a phenomenal job with our engagement shoot. She was super encouraging, which made us feel comfortable. She also gave detailed suggestions on how to pose, which made the experience so easy. We are obsessed with the photos she took! Definitely recommend!

Wow! Lavel has done 2 photo sessions with our family; one for our daughter’s senior pics and one of our family in the foothills. Both resulted in fabulous photos and fun experiences. These 2 sessions have been the best photo sessions we have ever had over our years. I highly recommend Lavel-she is talented at posing people and capturing the best-the best lighting, smiles, backgrounds.

It is such a pleasure to work with Lavel! She most recently captured our maternity photos, which felt a tad more vulnerable for me. She did an incredible job of making both my husband and I feel comfortable and ensuring we enjoyed the process. The photos turned out absolutely perfect. We will definitely be returning clients in the future!

"Lavel is amazing!!! Not only is she super nice but VERY talented! I’m the worst at posing and she knew exactly what to have me do. She catches the best candids too. Matt is also great!! Would give 10000 stars if I could. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful our photos turned out."
