Photography that makes the everyday extraordinary.


Documentary family photography is about honest, unposed images. Your life is beautiful and worthy of capturing just the way it is. 

Let me show you how beautiful your ordinary can be.

Laura made us feel very comfortable in our own home & produced such beautiful photos that we'll cherish. Her laid back style of photography was great to work with. Thank you!

Laura put us at ease immediately, her calm and centered approach created an environment where she was able to capture us as exactly ourselves. She took photos I didn't think to ask for, but now treasure.

Laura has a great eye for photography! She is fantastic at capturing everyday life. My girls didn't even pose and some of the images she captured of them shows them in their real element and are wonderful.


More than just a photography session.


Let's go beyond what life in your family looks like, and capture what life in your family feels like.  From the hugs, tears, messes, and giggles, my job is to really capture your day-to-day family life as it is now.

Because you only realize what's changed when you look back.

There's really no need to go crazy cleaning the house. If you have laundry that still needs folding or dishes in the sink, it's all okay. Those special moments you want to remember are still going to shine through. So are the hugs, tears, laughter, and spills!

Even dad will think so

When there's nobody telling you what to do or how to look, you really get to write your own story, which is pretty much what your life is all about anyways. Enjoy your daily routines and family activities!

Where you are happiest

No need for matching outfits and perfect smiles. You want to remember your life at this moment, exactly as you are. You might even find moments in your life you didn't know you loved.
