I'm Lauri Smith...
the photographer behind McKenzie Chase Photography!

I live in Plano, and I have an incredibly sweet and supportive husband and 2 beautiful daughters. In fact, the name McKenzie Chase comes from their middle names! I love God, Country music, listening to the waves on the beach, Chick-Fil-A sweet tea, and my puppies.

There was no questioning when I chose McKenzie Chase Photography for my Senior pictures. Lauri did such an amazing job on making sure everything was the way I wanted it to be. She made the photos shoot very memorable as we shared many laughs. I couldn't of asked for a better photographer as I made a new friend in the progress.

It felt like I had looked forever for a Senior photographer to take my Senior pictures and I wanted to ensure I found the perfect one and luckily I found McKenzie Chase Photography with Lauri! She was so nice and helpful from our very first consultation. It was so amazing to work with her and such a fun experience! She directed me throughout our entire session and had the perfect locations. She made my session feel special and unique and takes time to personalize each session to each girls character and style. I absolutely fell in love with all of my Senior pictures and have recommended her to all of my friends! You are definitely in good hands with Laurie as your photographer!

Thank you so much for taking my Senior photos, they turned out amazing!! Anyone would be lucky to have you be their photographer! You were so sweet, super easy to talk to and really knew what looked best. I had so much fun and I've recommended you to all my friends.
Thanks again!

Lauri was such a pleasure to work with! We were on a time crunch to get my daughter's Senior pictures taken and Lauri made it all work out perfectly. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous. We couldnot have asked for a more friendly and professional person to work with!
