Pismo Beach photographer sets up school portrait photo booth for students

Central Coast students are saying "cheese" for a school portrait despite attending class from home.

Lauren Hargreaves, a photographer from Pismo Beach, is helping families mark the beginning of the 2020-21 school year with her own pop-up photo booth.

Hargreaves is mother of two toddlers and a professional photographer.

Since she's used to being on-the-go with her kids, she has gravitated toward portrait photography.

Hargreaves set up shop in front of the Hello Village Children's Consignment and Gifts in Arroyo Grande to take photos of children between nine months and 18-years-old.

"Usually they come up and they're pretty shy, but by the end of it, they want to tell me all about their toys and their teachers and their friends so that's also the fun part about doing kids is you get to build a little relationship with them in just a couple minutes," said Hargreaves.

Community members interested in booking a photo shoot with her can do so online.
