Colleen Lawson Photography
As a child, Colleen Lawson would get lost in photography books and family photo albums, entranced by the colors, emotions, and stories that each picture tells. That was her first love, her second occurring later in life—babies and kids. Today she combines her loves, specializing in portraits of newborns and children in picturesque outdoor settings such as floral parks or foam-washed beaches. She also applies her skills to couples and family portraiture, as well as photo sessions for moms-to-be.
