Get to know me better

As a fine-art photographer and a Mother of three I am constantly seeking for the magic in the mundane. I love to witness the incredibly poetic moments inherent to Motherhood and feel absolutely fulfilled when given the chance to document them. It is my honor to curate photographs that embody your legacy.

"Laurel is amazing! She was able to coordinate and pick out beautiful settings for pictures. While taking pictures she was able to adapt with my young kids' attitudes and wiggly bodies to create precious moments, which is not an easy job.  

Laurel helped make each step so much easier.

Now we can enjoy our beautiful pictures for years. We are so grateful for these precious moments captured forever!"

"Laurel is simply amazing.  

We have had 4 shoots with her and each is better than the last.

She makes it fun for our kids and manages to capture everyone the way I see them as their mother. I cannot recommend Laurel enough! We will never use another photographer."

Mary Johnson

"Laurel did a wonderful job photographing my family with 2 kids under 5.

She was efficient with our time, knowing beforehand what poses and motions would get nice pictures, and how she wanted us to work with the lighting.

 I love how the pictures turned out and that I feel beautiful in them!"

alexa linscott

"We had a fabulous experience with Laurel in studio. My two year old was having a really hard day. Laurel was so gentle with her, and came up with great ideas to get some quality images despite the pout face. I was completely blown away when I received the images!! 

She captures light in such a beautiful way, I could not have been happier.

I'm so in love with my baby announcement pictures, THANK YOU, Laurel!!"
