You can usually find me 1 of 3 places:
Cozied up on my couch with coffee in hand, Jack (my adorable golden retriever lab) in my lap, and some form of Netflix on the TV (*and probably eating Nutella). At my Crossfit gym sweating to death and working out with my best friends. OR somewhere in Kenya, with a family I call my own, playing jump rope with a little girl with more sass and heart than anyone you'll ever meet.
These two things have changed my photography business. Because now my business is blended with my passion for God's people around the world. A portion of every shoot I have will go to supporting those around the world in need and missions and ministry partners that I have partnered with over time. My ministry is my photography!
What makes Meg Lawson Photography different is that I want my Photography to change lives while capturing them. I want to partner with my clients in changing this world. With every photo, a life will be changed.
My photography style is much like my mission - captivating, passionate and real. I want to capture emotion and those real moments you will cherish for the rest of your life. I will try to make you laugh at nothing at all and come up with jokes that don't make sense, but trust me - it's fun. I don't ever want awkwardness or fear to run through your mind - because being in front of a camera can be weird! But I strive to make shoots with me exactly the opposite - fun, laid back and YOU.
People are my favorite. So even if you want to grab coffee, chat about wedding plans, life, or the show you are binge watching on Netflix - Call me!
"If you're looking for someone that will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and make your time with her feel more like hanging out with a friend rather than being at a formal photo shoot. Meg is hands-down your girl!"

My Mission behind the business:
Growing up I had a HUGE heart for people. Specifically missions and ministry. I have been going on mission trips since I was 12 and I have seen brokenness, poverty and disease that no-one should ever have to experience. I remember in college thinking that I would never understand my calling because the only 2 things I was passionate about was art and missions.
God had another plan.
God molded these 2 things together showing me that there are no “rules” on what He’s called us to do. That is why Meg Lawson Photography is a for profit ministry that not only helps capture your most special moments, but it changes lives at the same time. Ten percent of my business currently goes help ministries around the world that are helping spread the Gospel and sustain the community.
Right now I am giving five percent to a ministry called “Flow of Hope” based in Kenya that is changing their community through schools, feeding programs, widows and orphans ministries and so much more through sustainable programs. Every summer I go for about a month and build schools, invest in the community and spread the gospel for those who don’t have it.
I have decided that the other five percent will be going to a ministry called Leadership Transformation International (www.leadershiptransformation.net). This ministry sends trained pastors all over the globe to rural places that may not even have access to the Bible or any type of teaching and they train pastors to go out in their own community and villages to spread the word of God.
I believe that we are made with a purpose. My passion is photography. Capturing those moments that make my couples remember every bit of their love. But I also believe in changing lives and I was blessed with the resources and abilities to do both.
