2022 Photographer to Make Your Family Look Normal

Lauren Harel Photography

You can tell Harel is a former elementary-school teacher by the way she seamlessly puts your kids at ease at the start of the photo shoot. It’s one of the things — along with her organization­ and sharp eye for capturing every smile and wry side-eye­ with a natural feel — that landed her on this list. The session is way more fun than you expect, and the well-edited­ collection of images you get back showcases your family in a way you haven’t seen before — and you’ll treasure forever.
