LAURYN BYRDY, owner and photographer
I discovered my passion for using photography to tell a story while serving as a brand strategist for a local agency. I strategized from 9-to-5, and took pictures in my “spare time”, capturing the most important and also mostly sweetly ordinary moments in people’s lives. In 2009, I opened a full-service photography studio, quickly turning this “side gig” into a full-time business.
As a mother of two, my greatest joy is shooting your (slightly unkept...bc let's be honest, that's real) day-to-day. I see those moments in my own daily life, desiring to freeze those moments for myself. From the mess of muffin making, the quiet of nursing a newborn in yesterday's clothes, the pool parties with family and friends, and ordinary park play after dinner... time with your family is precious and meaningful and worth documenting. Thank you sincerely for considering me to spend time capturing what you see everyday.
In addition to my work with children and families, I have had the incredible opportunity to work with a range of commercial clients that have included Nestle Purina, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, State Farm Insurance, Battelle for Kids, Jewell/31 Gifts, The Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus Childrens Choir, and Columbus based Vernacular... just to name a few.
Presently taking on-location work only
