Motherphotographer is all of these things. It's a space for me to share how my business operates, with immediately implementatable advice from nearly a decade of intensely heartfelt work as an internationally-published, six-figure earner. It's hard lessons learned through a career built by showing up with every ounce of my true and non-negotiable self. And it's exactly what I want for you.

I'm going to be musing out loud and sharing with sharp intention through videos, written content, and direct access to me and our beautiful community so that you always have foundational support when you need. I'm so stoked to connect with each and every one of you, but I'm equally excited to offer a space for true camaraderie that encourages you to grow a business that showcases every inch of your dynamic soul.   


I built a career by myself- but I also didn't. I had help. Everyone needs a mentor, a hand to hold, someone to guide them through the beginning or the dark parts. A whisper of motivation and an inspired idea to nudge them into their highest self. This is the spirit behind the membership. Guidance, encouragement, community. It's really that simple.

Seven years ago, I came into my career with 2 children, one being an infant. We were food stamp struggling, my partner lost his job and also in a court battle. Necessity moved me. I learned how to use my pawn shop camera from youtube and took my first weddings for free off of craigslist. I shot sessions with a baby on my back, breastfed in the parking lot during the reception, edited with one hand while spooning baby food with the other. This is precisely the spirit of Motherphotographer- its hope and a promise that no matter who you are, you can achieve something just for yourself, carrying your family with you all the way.

UNSCRIPTED, UNADULTERATED LEARNING within A FLAWED HUMAN COTERIE

This is a space for those who want to bet all their chips on themselves. Around here we have  big responsibilities and hearta full of hope for the future. We find bad words cathartic therapy, because that's just how life fucking feels sometimes. We carry heavy burdens, artistic yearning and the weight of our dreams. We make changes that seem way out of our comfort zone because we believe in infinite potential for achievement. And we take long hard looks at ourselves to growl off the doubt and demons so we can nurture the drive cowering behind that useless fear.  

It's a space for mothers, for fathers, for busy human beings who want to be better, find fulfillment, and build abundance on their own terms. It's a space to grow for yourself and for your family without sacrificing your identity. Tune in, because we're tuning out the bullshit so you can carve out the life that echoes who you really are.

@valeriemariephotography_

I just did my first wedding since being in this group. i did things that were out of my comfort zone, like leaving the mess and embracing it. but man, this is turning out to be my most favorite wedding anf I'm only half through the guys getting ready.
I still need tons of practice, but this way of photography makes my heart sing like it's never sang before. It makes me excited to pick up the camera and edit. 
Thankful for this group. Thanksful for mother laurken. Love to all.

@wildarrow.photography

@taylerashleyphotography

You should know right now that if you can't handle people in their entirety, for better or worse, that I am not for you.I run on bad words and thinking out loud.I give my heartbreaks and failures equal air-time on the album of life's greatest hits. This membership is about self-expansion and growth in ways that might feel uncomfortable and scary. But I can assure you that you are in a safe space. I'm open-minded, ever experimenting, and love intense conversation and this space is a grand hall for meaningful dialogue. I am who I am, in life and business, and harnessing my raw and curious nature has rewarded me time and time again. I want you to know how to do the same. 

All the deeply human stuff.
