I'm Laura - mom, wife, photographer (to name a few of the hats I wear) - 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 natural, honest and heartfelt, not forced. And you want beautiful photos of your real interactions, of your true personalities, having fun and loving each other like only you do.
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 (like cheese), but instead 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 that deep down what matters is that we love and are loved.
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 my toes.
I believe in simplicity and (trying) to be present in my life.
I believe that true beauty comes from the heart.
I believe in a creating a love-filled, life-giving home that’s not curated for pinterest, but that reflects our unique personalities and makes us all feel loved.
I believe that each day is a gift, and we have to make the most of every single one. Be present, have gratitude, and create a legacy by living - a life that's messy, beautiful, and true to you - 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 digital files that eventually get buried on Facebook and lost on a hard drive. You’ll walk away with a meaningful experience, heartfelt imagery, and real tangible memories that can be displayed in your home and passed down for generations.
To see more of my style, you can view my newborn portfolio here and my family images here. I have also created The Open Heart Project, in which I give photo sessions to families experiencing the terminal illness of a parent or child. Please check it out here.
And for more information or to book your session, come on over to my contact page and say hello... I can't wait to get to know you and document your family's story.
