Hi, I am Lauren!

I am the leading lady behind Glitter & Happiness. I am a photographer & sell postcards in my small shop based in Arizona.

Now that you’re here,

consider us besties!

Around here you will see a lot of photography, events, and travel diaries.
I am an enneagram seven and mom of soon-to-be three little friends. But, I am a fun mom who loves Disneyland, hosting themed parties, and blasting Taylor Swift in the car!
My goal of every photography session is that you walk away having fun & feeling uplifted.
I love to capture the magic of personalities through colorful photographs, in beautiful locations.

So, if you love to adventure, have fun, & spread positivity!
