Happy Holidays!

Hi all,

Well, I had to switch web designers this week. Long story short, she was not able to finish the site in a timely manor. I have now hired someone else to get the job completed for me. The site will launch around the 1st of January. I promise. It is going to be a great new site/blog all in one.

I wanted to let you all know that I have taken the month of December off. I will not be blogging again until the new site is up & running! But it will be well worth the wait! Im so excited about it.

If you are interested in booking a session after the 1st of the year, you are welcome to contact me now to set your date.

Wedding Clients, please contact me any time for my availability in 2009-2010. I cant wait to hear from you.

I will soon be joining forces with another incredible photographer. We are in the process of fine tuning all of the details. Will let you know more on the new site. Stay tuned!

I also have 2 new employees on board. One that will be stationed in Arkansas, and one that will be in Michigan! I will be welcoming them once the new site is launched!

Incredible things are happening for Lauren Harris Photography! Cant wait to share it all with you! And thank you so much for your support.

Here are a few images that i will leave you with.

I hope that everyone has a blessed holiday!

Trendy Product!

I blogged about this company a few weeks ago and while talking to them about my new custom designed camera strap, I realized that the previous blog had been deleted! I couldnt let that happen.

Trendy Camera Straps are an awesome product for photographers! I have been looking for a comfortable strap that is also fun and makes a statement! They were able to give me exactly what I was looking for. Not only did they provide me with immaculate customer service, they also were able to custom design a strap with the colors of my new brand that you will see in the November launch!

Go to http://www.trendycamerastraps.com/ and check them out! It will be well worth your time!

Congrats to Angela & Adam!

Here are a few images from Angela & Adam's Wedding. They were an adorable couple. The wedding was perfectly quaint and the day went fabulous. It took place in the evening time, outside at Dow Gardens in Midland, MI. The weather wasnt to cold neither to warm~ it was just right! The trees were dazzled with beautiful fall colored leaves, the grass was crisp & green, the gardens were vibrant~ ah, how lovely it was.

Hope you guys have a fabulous honeymoon!

'Keeping up with Lauren Harris" :)

Hey guys,

I have received lots of emails wondering where I have been because I havent been blogging.. :)

I have been traveling, working with my designer on my new website/blog, shooting weddings, and getting settled in my new home office!

Busy to say the least. I am so ready to have my new site up, you have no idea. I cant wait to share with you the new things that are happening with my business! I have been told that my site will be finished by the middle of November!
New Branding.
New Website/Blog All in one.
Daily Blogging about my life, my business.
New Weddings.
The knot. The Wedding Channel.
New Engagements.
New Slideshows.
New Video/Photos of ME in action.
New Q&A's for Photographers.
New Trendy Products. (Brides, you will love the new guestbook/album options)
New Pricing.
New Specials.

Oooooh and I'm itching to unveil it all to you guys. Just 1 more month! Stay tuned!

Brides, you have until November 1st to lock in my current rates. After November 1st, there will be a price increase for my services.

Also, for my families out there. If you havent noticed yet, my session fee has gone up. For those of you that have booked your session for October, the old fee will be honored. As a few of you already know, I have joined forces with a new print company (top of the line & fabulous), so you may see an increase in the a la carte rates and package collections over the next month. The new pricing changes that do take place will remain the same through the end of 2009 for my Families & Seniors.

Here's all the words that have inspired all the new changes you are about to see! Pick a word today and live by it!

"If you're a bird, Im a bird"

A quote from the most famous love story of all time... I know everyone that looks at my blog has seen the movie "The Notebook". Well this couple shares that exact love. The love that every girl wants and hopes for.

These two are so freakin cute together its not even funny. And Meagan is identical to Rachel McAdam's character in that movie. She was so stinkin adorable. They flirted with each other as if it were the first time they had met. They held each other as if they had been together for years upon years. Every time Blake looked at her it was if he had just fallen in love all over again. They smiled, they laughed, they played, they had everything in common. It melted my heart.

It was a wonderful engagement session. I absolutely cant wait to photograph your wedding in the Spring!

Missed me yet??

I have totally neglected my blog. I have been so so busy this month i cant keep my head on straight! lol And next month is even more crazy! No complaining, just letting you know why i havent been keeping up with my blogging.. I will be traveling again starting Tuesday of next week and will not be able to check my email while i am gone. I will be accepting phone calls if you need me. Orders that were sent to me prior September 8th, should be shipped to you within the next week. All other orders will be shipped to you after the 23rd of September.

Here are a few pics from as session earlier this month.

Andrew & Linsey, August 23, 2008

Andrew & Linsey were married at the Alumni Chapel on the campus of Michigan State University. This was a beautiful place to get married. Both of them attended undergrad & graduate school at MSU, so the wedding colors chosen, were green and white. I had the honor of photographing this Wedding with the incredible Jason Aten (http://jasonaten.blogspot.com/).
And is was a pleasure working with him. He is so very talented!

Thank you all so much for having me help capture your special day. It was an honor!
