I’m not going to lie - I am going to come to your shoot in old yoga pants with my hair in a messy bun. Will I look totally underdressed when your family shows up looking fabulous? Yes. But then when your three-year-old starts chasing butterflies or climbing trees, there will be zero hesitation about me crawling and climbing after her camera in hand! And no problems running to the other end of the woods to get the perfect sunset behind your family.

My only goal is to capture the real moments in your family. The belly laughs, the pillow fights, the boo-boos only kisses from mom can heal, and, most importantly, all the love your family has!

The last thing I want is for you to feel awkward during your photos, so I will help every step of the way to pose you in ways that are natural and comfortable. But, more than that, I will keep you guys moving and playing to get portraits that look authentically you.

Outdoor Adventuring

Come to my beautiful studio - a classic white setup full of couches, chairs, and backdrops for a variety of posing options and color schemes.

Capture who you are where you live - your baby’s first crib, your kids playing with their own toys, making cookies in your kitchen.

In the woods, jumping hand-in-hand into the lake, throwing fall leaves into the air. Let’s go exploring, and take in those beautiful landscapes.


All shoots include complimentary digital images, an online gallery, and a print release. 

Prices start at $300

I never imagined that taking photos could be so much fun! 

Laura kept us laughing and talking the whole time and was so positive about everything. And our photos could not have turned out better! They really look like us just having fun together, which is exactly what it felt like to take them!”
