To capture moments that tell your story, to create magic that makes you smile and to see YOU in every picture. This is my passion and this is my goal.
Taking images with a photo-journalistic eye, I specialize in the candid, in-between moments. I believe these are the moments that foster unique individuality, love, and the essence of family.

She truly captured the essence of mine and my husbands relationship in photographs. The pictures are impeccable and I'm truly thrilled with the service she provided. I plan to use her talents for our future special life moments! " - Amalie
" Lauren has such a unique eye for beauty, and photo ops that not many people could identify.

A Natural Portrayal Photography
Hello and Welcome! My name is Lauren Bolyard. I am currently based in the beautiful hills of Western Maryland and am proud to be the business owner and photographer for A Natural Portrayal Photography. When I don't have a camera in my hand, you can find me balancing life as a wife and mother of two. I am so very humbled and blessed to be one of the few who actually gets to live out their dream career, and I thank God every day for the ability to do so. I simply love, LOVE, and I have a passion for creating art. I cannot imagine life without the immense privilege of seeing it through the magic of a lens, and I consider it my calling in life to use my talents to bless others with memories that speak to the heart.
