I'm Laura - mom, wife, photographer - fueled by love and coffee.
If you've found me here then hopefully, like me, you love a timeless style. You are drawn to imagery that is honest and heartfelt, not forced, and the idea of showing up to a photoshoot in matching outfits and looking at the camera to say “cheese” makes you completely cringe.
You just want beautiful photos of your real interactions, of your true personalities, having fun and loving on each other like only you do. Is that too much to ask?
Not at all. As a mom myself, I get it and I would love to help you do that.
Motherhood has been the single best teacher in my life and through the last 6 years of raising my boys, I have come to know this to be true: it is not about perfection, it is about finding beauty in the imperfection. It is about savoring the here and now, and not wishing it were anything different. I like to think my photography is much the same - you won't find me forcing perfect poses or asking you to say anything into the camera, but allowing moments to unfold and focusing on what truly matters:
The moment. The connection. The love.
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 the one's that will mean the most someday.
I believe in running barefoot in the grass and feeling sand between your toes.
I believe in simplicity and being present in our lives.
I believe that true beauty comes from the heart.
I believe in a love-filled home 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 create a legacy by living - a life that's messy, beautiful, and real - so one day you'll be able to look back and see that it was filled with what truly mattered: love.
When you hire me for your family’s photos, you’re not just going to get some digital files that eventually get buried on Facebook and lost on a hard drive. You’ll walk away with a meaningful experience, heartfelt photography, and real tangible memories that can be displayed in your home and passed down for generations.
