WELCOME

My goal in every session is to capture all the love, laughter and emotion. A photograph is so much more than an image. It is a snapshot in time that will bring back all the feels, smells and love that you had in that split second.

Every session has a story to tell depending on where you are at in your lives. I treat all my clients as friends and cannot wait for the next time we meet. My sessions are tailored in hopes that you will leave feeling as energized and full of excitement as I do. So bring on all the love and warmth and let’s make some magic together.

“Such a great experience working with Laurel!! She is so warm and welcoming! Her studio is super cute and has a little bit of everything to offer. She was so down to earth and works soooo well with babies, especially unfocused, babies on the move. I will definitely be booking with her again. I definitely recommend her!”

“The best things in life are free: hugs, smiles, friends, kisses, family, sleep, love, laughter, and good memories.”

FAMILY

Every family has a different dynamic. Some are mellow, some are not so. My goal is to capture the beauty in all its glory and chaos. My family sessions are very unposed. My plan is to tell a story from the time you arrive till the end of the session. There is lots of love, snuggles and fun in these sessions. It is rare that I ask you to look at me, because I want to capture the love between you and your family. Come make memories with me.

MATERNITY

That moment you find out you’re are expecting… that moment of pure bliss. That is the feeling that I want to capture for you. All the love and excitement, all the unknowns are some of the most real and raw feelings. These are the times you want to capture and save forever. Maternity sessions are some of my absolute favorites. Every mama brings a different story and every mama shows a different kind of beauty. The glow on a mama’s face when she holds her belly. The look from her mate and kiss from her children. I want to capture of all this!

NEWBORN

​Newborn sessions are some of the most precious moments for me to capture. Whether you are a first time parent or if you are a pro, each session brings something special. My studio is setup for you to arrive and relax. I treat every baby as I would my own with love and patience. I have all the beautiful props and textiles that is needed to create a gorgeous gallery full of all the colors that you love. All I need from you is a sweet, sleepy babe!

CONTACT ME

I look forward to working with you! Shoot me a message and let’s make some memories together.

“I can’t say enough positive things about our two sessions with Laurel. Our maternity-family and newborn photos are to die for!  She is such a sweetheart and makes you feel very comfortable (definitely not staged, stiff, awkward). When it’s picture time, she’s prepped and ready to go! The final product is amazing. Love, love, LOVE Laurel. I can’t wait to have her capture our little family in a few months for holiday!”
