Publishers’ LOVE Award: Lara Mattey, Ivory Tree Portraits
"Lara Mattey is a visionary dedicated to helping all kinds families celebrate their moments." ~Sarah Bond
Why we LOVE Lara Mattey:
Lara is always there for us. We are sometimes overwhelmed by the clear alignment in our missions! And just a few weeks before the LOVE Awards, she jumped in to help style and orchestrate our macaron photoshoot to create the cover of the Main Line Parent Best for Families Guide. Of course we got the shot, and we enjoyed some macarons from our Family Favorite Delice et Chocolat.
Lara has been a photography studio owner in Wayne since 2016, rebranding a year and a half ago as Ivory Tree Portraits. Ivory Tree is a family portrait boutique, specializing in naturally lit images that capture families of all ages and compositions. Her team of experienced photographers can take you from fur baby to human baby and into the teen years, telling the story of your family.
The name puts together the two things that Lara felt were most important about her business: the ethereal beauty of natural light (the “ivory”) and the combination of the family tree and the connection that grows between families and Ivory Tree photographers.
Do you know about Ivory Tree Portraits’ inclusive events? They’ve welcomed the LGBTQI community for complimentary “My Two Dads” photography sessions. You may have seen their Rainbow Baby photos in your news feed with Main Line Fertility patients, and she has many more great ideas in store for the future as well. Lara is a visionary dedicated to helping all kinds families celebrate their moments.
“Whatever your family unit looks like — we really wanted to be fully inclusive of that,” She says. “The photographers on my team, they will get to know you and your personality and how you grow, and we will capture that for you.
