Hello! I'm Laurie

I am a photographer with the desire to capture moments of your family during the time in your life when you are beginning and growing your family. 

Imagine having the ability to return to the days you were carrying and then meeting your child face to face, to have the chance to feel that love and emotion all over again. I treasure these memories I have and remember the beginning of JOY they would bring to our family. Pictures give us a way to preserve that time, to relive those memories over and over again. YOU are a big part of those memories and YOU need to be in the picture!

I believe that children are a precious gift from God and that each one is fearfully and wonderfully made. I would love the opportunity to document this beginning for you and your children so that you can also relive these precious moments.

I am also a Mom to two boys that are complete opposites, full of life and remind me everyday that laughter is such an important part of each day. I am fortunate to be married to my best friend Scott and together we have shared in many memories and firsts with our boys. My boys are growing and changing by the day. The days they came into our life seem so far away. Those days carrying my boys and the days following their arrival were truly CRAZY! The emotions that took over, the lack of sleep, the hustle to make everything perfect and the witnessing things I never thought my body was capable of doing are just a few of the experiences that filled those days. The moments that took place during that time are some of the sweetest moments in life and they last only the blink of an eye. I struggle to remember the details when sharing those memories with my boys. I would love the opportunity to give you pictures to remember this special time.

Laurie did both a maternity and Fresh 48 session for us. I can’t say enough good things about her talent and professionalism. She was so accommodating and flexible with all the ideas and suggestions that I had...which were many! I highly recommend her to anyone that is expecting their own little bundle of JOY.
