I'm Laura - photographer, mom, wife, and non-profit founder - fueled by love and coffee.
If you've found me here, then hopefully, like me, you love classic style and timeless art - not the latest trends but the things that last 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 young 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 this magical time while you can. I know that you want to remember each and every baby toe, curly hair, and toothy grin. I see those details because I know them. And it’s so important to me to record them for you - because loving and serving mothers and helping you keep a piece of this moment in time is the heart of why I do what I do.
In addition to photography, I spend my time exploring Fairfield County with my boys and running 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" every day.
I believe in natural and organic.
I believe that integrity and kindness are more important than popularity and perfection.
I believe that true beauty comes from the heart.
I believe that life is full of ups and downs, and it's not about trying never to fall. Rather it's about when you do fall, how you rise afterwards. Because none of it is guaranteed and everyday is a new chance to love and grow and do your best.
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 my greatest 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.
