I'm Laura - mom, wife, photographer - fueled by love and coffee.

If you've found me here, then hopefully, like me, you love classic & timeless style - not the latest trends but the things that stand the test of time. You are drawn to imagery that is honest and emotive, not forced. And you're probably realizing how fast time is flying by and thinking, "these are the days I'll want to remember."  

I would love to help you do that. 

As a mom of two little boys myself, I truly know where your heart is. I know that you can’t believe your baby is already so big, and all you want to do is grasp on to these precious days while you can. I know that you want to remember each and every baby toe, curly hair, and toothy grin. I see those details when I photograph because I treasure them, too. And what I love most about my job is capturing those simple, yet beautiful details for you - because loving and serving mothers and helping you keep a piece of this moment is the heart of why I do what I do. 

In addition to photography, I love spending time out in nature with my boys exploring the woods and playing at the beaches around Farifield County as much as we can. I also run Anchors for Hope, a 501(c)(3) foundation I co-founded with my husband, in honor of our son Henry. When it comes down to it, I have a few simple beliefs:

I believe in genuine, unscripted moments and timeless black and white images that tell a story about love and connection.

I believe that motherhood is a sacred experience and that these days, even though they're messy and chaotic and real, are so incredibly beautiful and worth capturing.

I believe in running barefoot in the grass and dancing in the rain.

I believe in kisses and snuggles and "I love you's" all day, every day.

I believe that integrity and kindness are more important than popularity and perfection.

I believe that true beauty comes from the heart.

I believe in family and stacks of photo albums holding precious memories to thumb through on rainy days, and hand down to future generations.


I believe that time is so fleeting, and we need to make the most of each and every day. Take risks, live with heart, and capture all of that beauty so one day you'll have heirlooms to look back on and see a life filled with what truly matters: love.


It is such an honor to help families document their lives with meaningful, heartfelt photography, and if that is what you're looking for then we could be a great match. If you'd like to know more about my style, you can view my indoor lifestyle portfolio here and my outdoor images here.

With Love,
