Hello Friend & Welcome!
So glad you stopped by...
My name is Laura, and lifestyle photography is my passion!! I love to tell stories by capturing the candid moments of life, whether it be a drop of rain about to make contact, or a couple of kids chasing each other around on the playground. I believe the most authentic portraits happen during those little "in between" moments, and I love capturing them in the making!
My educational background is in Art & Design, and as soon as I got a camera in my hands around 2008, I added photography to my list of serious hobbies. In 2010 I ventured across the ocean to the AMAZING country of New Zealand (yes, it's every bit as amazing as it looks!!) to study Graphic Design. While there, I honed my photography skills as part of the course, and uncovered a true passion for taking photographs. Over the years, I've had the awesome pleasure of working with and learning from a couple of professional photographers including Rod Stanton of Rod Stanton Photography, and Michele Jones of Fine Portraiture by Michele (two AMAZING people who I am blessed to call FRIENDS!). With my artistic background plus experience taking photos of friends, family and referrals, I decided it was finally time to launch my business in October 2015!
Since then, I have had the amazing pleasure of becoming a Mother, and we now have baby #2 on the way! That said, photography is currently sitting in second place to my sweet babies, but I am keeping my skills up to date by photographing my kiddos, and taking online courses and webinars during this season of life.
I am still offering local mini sessions, so please contact me if you're interested!
I am thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to capture those "in between" moments in life, which He has ultimately created for His own good and glory! I hope that His work in me as a Christian will be reflected in my work as a photographer, designer and artist, because He is the ultimate artist: creating a "good work" in me when there was nothing there but sin and rebellion. I am forever indebted to my Lord because of what He has done for me in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Please check out my work, and let me know if you'd like some more info about mini sessions! Thank you friend!!
Take care and many blessings,
I am a firm believer in always striving to improve my work!
Lightroom, along with recent Professional Photography Education Courses and Webinars have been absolutely TRANSFORMING the way I see light, arrange subjects, and edit my photos. This is just the beginning, and I am excited to see where my "style" ends up...consistency is KEY and that is my ultimate GOAL!
